Just want to confirm what other reviewers have said- come, take a look, and then stay somewhere else. Recently had my first stay at the Del and would never stay there again. Actually visited the property in January, had lunch and was looking forward to being a guest in March.
I was there with a conference and it appeared that there was some labor dispute going on from the picketers outside the hotel.
Insufficient staff everywhere in this hotel. Noisy, construction, inconsistent daily room maintenance- and we actually had a very nice ocean view room. Some days our room was cleaned around 4:00 p.m. and then someone showed up for turn down service around 5:00.
Check in was a hassle. We arrived early and the room was not ready, although everyone else in our group did have rooms ready. After standing in line to check in, had to stand in a long line again just to get the keys several hours later (we were assured it would be "just a few minutes"). Had to retrieve our luggage back from the bell stand in order for my husband to make his golf game which took forever as there was hardly any staff with the luggage. The room keys quit working the first night and we had to trek back over to the lobby to get new keys.
I could go on, but no reason. Read the other reviews.
