We stayed at the Desmond for one night in February 2013. The hotel is conveniently located adjacent to the airport (which you can definitely hear) and Interstate 87. A lot of restaurants nearby on Wolf Road. The room was sized well, and as previous reviewers have said, with paper thin walls. Wasn't too big of a deal, but I could hear my son crying in the room while I was down the hall getting ice (about ten rooms away). The ambiance in the hotel is great, almost as if you are in a little village. The fitness facility is interesting, as the weights and equipment is in the pool area and not in a seperate room. Did not eat at the restaurants so I can not speak to the food. The condition of the room, and the hotel itself, was a little dated, but not terrible. The television was new, the beds were somewhat comfortable, and the bathroom was modern. Would definitely recommend to others and will consider for future travel to the area.
