This is a historic inn-and-restaurant located just a block south of Atlantic Avenue in what once was a solely residential area. We stayed over the New Year's Holiday for a few days around Delray's First Night Celebration. There is sufficient self-serve parking in a lot on site. It was great just parking the car and walking to Atlantic Avenue activities.
The big draw about the place is the landscaping, pool and restaurant. We spent a pleasant afternoon on the grounds, specially in-and-around the pool. Pool area is like nothing we'd ever seen before, with lush landscaping, fully stocked with fish, lots of seating. The grounds are landscaped so that you feel as if you've entered a standalone jungle and every corner that you turn is a new surprise. Lots of gazebos, cul-de-sacs, bridges, flowing water. When you go in, you feel as if you've left the city behind.
Room was well apportioned, with an entryway bar area (built-in cabinets, granite counter tops, mini microwave, fridge), and modern bar ware, plates and other service items. Furnishings were unique; our room decorated in something like British colonial style. With a balcony overlooking part of the pool area.
About the breakfast: The wife wanted waffles. The breakfast is tastefully laid out continental: basket of mini croissants and pastries, breads for toasting, artfully arranged platters and bowls of freshly cut fruit, fresh-fruit compote, coffees and juices. Strictly self-service. Nothing hot. Given that there was a cook on hand to prep the buffet each morning, who was basically hanging around just for that, would it have been that much more of an effort to have him hang out with a hot plate and prep some eggs to order?
About the noise at night: The restaurant area is partially open. And the band/music/dancing is set-up in what is essentially an open-to-the-elements dance floor. That means that any party noise from the restaurant or a wedding will spread over the grounds. And their guests are out wandering the grounds. If you're looking for a place that shuts down at 8 PM, this is not the place for you and you will be disappointed. But if you're up for the energy of watching a wedding unfold, or dancing along to the (overheard) music of a party, then it's a perfect
