My favorite hotel has always been the Del. On my recent visit I noticed they are making changes. These changes aren't good from a historical standpoint. First thing I noticed was all the cool cubbies that used to be behind the check in desk were gone and replaced with random metal butterflies. Then I turn around and the sitting room and fireplace where I've enjoyed so many Moo Time Creamery ice cream cones with my kids has been torn out and replaced with the Concierge. Then I think "sure seems brighter in here" and they have taken down the beautiful brass chandelier in the lobby and recoated it in silver!!!!!!! Yuck!!! I'm so sad to see the owners trying to take away all the history to make it more modern. It's not what the Del is about. Please change it back and I hope you kept the cubbies that were behind the check in desk. Someone is going to regret taking those out one day!!! PLEASE, PLEASE don't mess with the elevator!!! On another note I still love the Del. Unless the new owners keep changing it!!! And ocean view Victorian is the only way to go!
