The Colony grandly sits right on Atlantic Ave. Great bar spilling out to the porch and to the restaurants and shops. The hotel is quite well maintained and is spotless. Highly recommended for a weekend get away. The Cabana Club is located on a pristine stretch of beach...

This visit was a real trip back in time for me. Stayed here many years ago and was excited to come back. It had not changed much, retaining its old world charm. You have to love a place that has an elevator with a hand crank to operate it. You have to love a place where you can sit on... More

My husband and I escaped one night here for our anniversary. It is a great find. Very cool from another era. Walking distance to Downtown Delray. We loved our stay here and wished we had longer to enjoy the amazing ambiance!! We will defiantly be back a great get away for a night or two.

I'll preface by saying that I am an historic hotel fan. I appreciate the history, ambiance, quality construction, architecture and general vibe of well maintained noteworthy hotels of the past. The Colony fulfills all these. The cleanliness is impeccable. The staff is efficient. The rooms have been updated while retaining the character and soul. The bathrooms are well done and... More

I arrived at the reception desk and the personnel were friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and I was given a corner room on the second floor facing Atlantic Ave and there was no outside noise issues. The furniture was a tad worn but I suspect this is part of the charm of this "Old Classic". The cross ventilation... More

Beautiful place, transports you back in time. Wish I was around in the heyday ! The pictures tell the story of the " old time style lobby " ! Next time we will stay longer . Came with friends, and some family members. Very pretty decor, since I like orange it appealed to me. Very warm feeling , colourful.

I started liking the Colony when we pulled in the easy-access parking lot (a plus in busy Delray Beach) to find a friendly attendant and and a charming back entrance. The old-time lobby instantly relaxed me, the people at the desk were friendly, the 1920s elevator was fun, the hardwood floors were clean and refreshing to walk on, and our... More

Stayed here over the holiday to visit with friends & family. Loved the old hotel with the antique furniture & especially the elevator, which was always run by one of the hotel staff. The breakfast was fine and the hotel & rooms were clean. Best of all was the Cabana Club on the beach. It is about 2 miles away... More
