I had never visited the state of Delaware before last week. I has always passed through on the way from NYC to Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and points south. This time I spend 3 nights at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach while researching an article on the paranormal activity in the area.
To say I was thrilled would be putting it mildly. A 4 Diamond AAA property this 84 room gem is located on the boardwalk. As I pulled into their parking lot (free parking) an employee came out to my car and unloaded my bag. All the employees seemed really pleased to be working there. There was always a smile and greeting. Entering the lobby I thought I had been invited into a Victorian manor, not a building built in 1991. There are antique touches everywhere, including several parrots who greeted me. I was shown to my suite on the concierge 4th floor which required the use of my room key upon entering the elevator. This floor is a no children zone which also has a private elevator to the rooftop sundeck and spa tub.
My suite had a separate sitting area with a desk, couch and several chairs, as well as a flat screen TV. The sleeping area had the most comfortable bed I have slept in for many years. The sink area was large with lots of bright lights. There was a separate shower & toilet room which was a bit small. I loved the small touches which included a bathrobe, lots of big fluffy towels and even an umbrella. There was also free wi-fi which I used every day.
While riding up and down the indoor glass elevator you can watch people walking on the boardwalk and beach. There is a small heated indoor-outdoor spa tub located off the lobby. During the evenings the spa jets are turned on and it is adults only.
I did use the fitness center located on the basement level and had breakfast every morning in the Victoria Restaurant.
This is not the least expensive place to stay but is well worth the extra cost. Highly recommended.
