5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotelrooms are spacious, beds are huge and comfortable. Breakfast is goed, enough choices for anyone. Conference Center is nice. Meeting rooms with all facilities and good service. Friendly service. We used the Terrace Room, a room with a nice atmosphere and lots of daylight.

Just spent a weekend celebrating our 50th high school reunion! Staff was so accommodating. Rooms are nice and roomy. They will be getting a facelift which they need. Restaurant menu is limited but food is good . As a former business traveler, I would give it high marks too. Internet was easy to connect with good speed

I've been staying at the Desmond in Malvern off and on for over 15 years. During this time, I have always experienced some of best meals and service on a consistent basis. I have also hosts many meetings here and found the facilities and staff to be top rate! They recently have begun to "renovate" their guest rooms; which severely... More

The hotel is nice and clean. The staff are friendly and offer a great shuttle service. The breakfast is lovely and great service. Great choice on the bar and restaurant menu. A huge drink selection in the bar the only downfall is the bar is very load.

Is this hotel brand new and spotless? No. Is it dirty and gross? Not at all. If you have that mindset going into this beauty you will love your stay. I was sadly only here one night and wasn't able to dine at the restaurant. When we asked the front desk if the breakfast was a "standard breakfast" she said... More

Built in 1988, this colonial style hotel is very comfortable. Handles mostly corporate events but still comphy for travelers. We had a death at Paoli Hospital and were treated with the up.-most respect. which we deeply appreciated. Some renovation going on but not a problem

Stayed here while attending a nearby event. The rooms were clean and comfortable with free wi-fi. The hallway can use some freshening up as they were a little dingy and room service trays that were left out longer than necessary. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

This is a very nice hotel with great staff. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a great little English style pub on site. There is also a nice patio area out back to sit and relax while enjoying a beer or snack. The hotel is located in a nice safe area near valley forge. The only issue I... More

I stayed at the Desmond for a night while in town, and found the room to be very comfortable. The restaurant/bar was open late, fortunately, and the food was very good. I would recommend this hotel for travelers of all sorts.

Stayed for 3 nights on business last month. Reception staff were friendly and attentive. Room was spacious, clean and well-equipped. No safe though, so I couldn't leave anything valuable in the room. VERY noisy heating system - crazy. It wakes you up in the middle of the night when it comes on. Learnt to avoid that I left the heating... More
