I am just back from a family weekend getaway at The Desmond. As others here have written, I agree that the staff is stellar and the food is consistently excellent. I was surprised to observe that the staff was mature, ever-present, inquisitive, responsive and genuinely concerned with our overall enjoyment. The kitchen deserves a real compliment. The consistency of the food is remarkable. Although the furnishings could use some slight updating (i.e. a coat of paint or stain in the common areas, plush bedding) there is something totally charming and welcoming about this hotel. It was nice to see that the hotel is busy with events, too, such as a business conference, a family reunion, a cultural association event, and a baby shower. This demonstrated how the facility is connected to its community. Since my room was an outside facing room, none of these events interrupted my stay.
