“Beautiful Buy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I stayed here for one night on business. The staff was helpful and charming, and the location was fantastic for my business and dining on the historic main street. The hotel itself is unique, comfortable, and a far lovelier place to stay than the generic chains otherwise available.

Was in Deland for business for the first time and chose this hotel as it is downtown. What a gem. Rooms are comfortable and large- great bed. Owners and staff incredibly delightful! Pleasant to talk to. Soon to have a restaurant downstairs. Would absolutely stay there again and even looking forward to staying there again.

My husband and I recently spent the weekend in DeLand, Florida and stayed at the Artisan Downtown Boutique Hotel.

I was super chic and extremely comfortable. Its been renovated very nicely and the cool wow factor is that the building itself was the old DeLand Hotel from the turn of the century. There are large photos of the original building on the wall as you walk to the elevator. They have renovated the building/rooms but have captured the essence of the history of the building in the details.

The room itself had 2 separate spaces with a door between the sitting area and the sleeping/bath area. The sofa in the sitting room was very comfortable, as was the queen size bed. Both rooms had flat screen tvs, a bonus for being in either room.

DeLand is a great slice of small town Florida but don't be fooled its not stuck in time, its trendy and quaint all at the same time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the north side so you can look out onto main street downtown.

Upon checking into the artisan downtown I was greeted by very friendly staff member. He already knew my room number explained where everything was and was very nice. The rooms are big, with a sitting area and two flatscreen TVs in each room. The hotel itself is very clean and well-maintained. Judging from the other options nearby I would stay here hands-down.

Stayed one night in a very nice room for a good price. The staff was friendly and helpful. My son had a treat time learning Russian from the front desk person while we sat in the bar and watched Rugby and talked to the owner.

Very close to downtown shops and eateries.

My wife and I stayed here late last year. The staff were incredibly friendly, the rooms are nice and the hotel is within walking distance of DeLand's main attractions. Only issue we faced was getting back into the hotel late at night since they did not have a overnight doorman. I'm sure they have that taken care of now. Highly recommended.

Hello Itinerant_Gator,

Thank you for your very kind review of our hotel. I apologize, again, for the trouble you and your wife encountered getting back into the hotel at night. We immediately started offering a 24-hour service desk in order to resolve that issue. I hope you and your wife come back to visit us again soon!

I live in DeLand and therefore haven't stayed in the Artisan Inn (although these experienced hoteliers have been in DeLand for years), I must rave about the food! We stopped in for dessert after doing the Bike Fest and the bread pudding (I know, but it was GOOD) was fantastic. Just the right amount of moisture, not mushy or hard as a rock. Speaking of hard, the sauce wasn't but it was very nice, with enough to finish the item without a lot left over. My partner had the
Balushahi, which I would call somewhat granola-like (w/o the grains) with whipped cream and a raspberry coulis drizzle. Excellent coffee and chai tea rounded out our evening. Good service was provided by Lindsey, who was vivacious in every sense of the word. SQUARE 1 is my new favorite place to go out in DeLand.

Room Tip: There are only eight, so reserve early.

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your kind review of our restaurant and restaurant staff. We recently transformed the restaurant portion of the building into a brand new expansive lobby, meeting room, and retail space. Now our guests will be greeted by a lobby space that features the same streamlined décor and organic colors and textures that are found in our rooms. Though you will no longer find the desserts you mentioned in your review, Square 1 Bar still offers the hospitality you mentioned on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. We hope you and your partner come by to visit the Square 1 Bar and check out the new renovations soon!
