Went with a day trip group to the green room for high tea. Treated to a history tour of some of the facilities. Did not see any of the rooms. This is a well maintained grand dame.They have an impressive collection of art. The staff seems to really like their jobs and successful in maintaining an aloof/ nice. So you feel upper crust but welcome all at the same time. It felt like being in a hotel in london. I look forward to going back to spend the night. The dessarts at high tea were delightful but obviously not made that day. I am spoiled from too much grand dinning at sea when the dessarts were made in house and immediate. but this tasted better. This the place to have a wedding. The ball room bare is beautiful. You can have your dinners in the green room and guests can stay the night in the hotel. the gift shop is an over kill of junk. the first time I ever went to a gift shop and not bought a thing. Didn't have time to explore the high end shops. Delaware has many places of interest this hotel is in a central location. Not good for tour bus parking but accomodation can be arranged. plan for valet parking lf you drive. stairs real art on the walls toddlers and small children need supervision. nice cozy bar area for a date.
