We recently used The Colony Hotel as the hotel for our daughters destination wedding guests. Everyone loved it ! It is a beautiful historic hotel. It fit perfectly into our vintage themed wedding. We were given an exceptionally good rate for our guests which included breakfast. After the wedding the guests were pleasantly surprised to find entertainment and a bar in the lobby. Not to mention the great location right on Atlantic Ave with all the great stuff it has to offer. Most of the guests used the pool and beach club and took advantage of the free shuttle.The beach has recently been refurbished and is huge ! If you are looking for an alternative to the usual mundane modern hotel this is the place for you ! The only minor problem we had was one of our guests had a broken foot and scooter. Being a historic hotel it does not have handicapped provisions. The staff at the hotel pitched in to help him the best they could making detours in and out of the kitchen with him when he could not navigate the stairs.
