After reading some of the reviews and speaking to the staff on the phone. I almost switched to the Marriott. However, I wanted to give this hotel a chance and I was not disappointed. In person as opposed to on the phone - the staff was very knowledgeable and polite. The valet was very attentive and offered water and other nice touches that you typically see at 5 star resorts. Check in was easy and quick at 5 pm. We were given room 416 – the top floor, a King deluxe with balcony on Atlantic Ave.
The room was very spacious and immaculate about 500 sq. feet. Housekeeping was wonderful and was on our floor every morning at 8:30 when we left the room. Just turn on the service room button (I love hotels that have this!) and your room is done when you return a few hours later. You have your choice of complimentary newspaper that arrives about 8 am. The balcony is very big, table, 4 chairs, another lounge chair and small side table with an arbor overhead. The room has a very nice wet bar with wine glasses, fully stock fridge with very reasonably priced wines, liquor, club soda, soft drinks. Also available are assorted other snacks for a fee and Fiji water, along with a large blue bottle of sparkling water $6 daily. Toiletries where Gilchrest and soames. The bed is very soft, comfy and lines again are immaculate. We ordered room service twice. The American breakfast $16 pp, eggs, ham, toast or bagel, potatoes arrived hot and were very good! Also the hummus plate was very good as well. The bathroom again, very spacious, with walk in stone shower and very large soaking tub. Turndown service arrived every night and provided extra towels, with a nice flower. My tip – spend a little extra and get this deluxe room on a high floor. If you have triple AAA they offer a small discount.
We did not eat at the Atlantic Grille but chose instead to hit the restaurants in the town of Delray (Salt, Racks Oyster Bar, Café De France) but if your there for a weekend definitely check out the piano player or band on Friday and Saturdays. There are two very cool aquariums and it seemed very lively at about 9 pm. There is a quick service type restaurant next to the gift shop that offers, snacks, coffee, water and breakfast.
The Beach Club
I read some reviews that people were surprised this hotel is not on the beach. I think the website can be a little deceiving because it features the beach club prominently. The Beach club is a mile away on A1A. There is shuttle service offered (2 white Mercedes SUV’s) that run constantly. We never had to wait. There is a shuttle trolley but I never saw that being used. I heard the hotel is buying 2 more Mercedes SUV’s. The beach club itself is very nice with pool, 2 restaurants and service to the beach. They set up umbrellas, etc…We did not try the restaurant as we left by lunch time to try a restaurant in town. I found the beach club very relaxing and the staff polite. The locker room, bathroom facilities were clean but a little small especially if the beach club is busy. We arrived early and left early so we did not encounter crowds there.
My husband had a massage and said it was fabulous. However, the steam room was not working. Other than that he said the facilities were very nice
To summarize, I think the Seagate is lovely and I would return again. The location is great (in the heart of Delray and walking to shopping great restaurants) and I always enjoy the town of Delray. With regards to some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, for the price of $400 and up, I would have to say yes, based on the theory that you get what you pay for, this hotel is about a $400/night and up (depending on room category) hotel. Travel unfortunately is not cheap and it seems that it’s always about location 1st AND 2nd the hotel itself!
