I recently planned a "Get Re-acquainted with Our Town Weekend" as a surprise birthday gift to a friend. I had watched with great interest the extensive renovations being made to the Hotel Rodney and delighted in both the design and the execution. The concept of a boutique hotel, small and cozy, is most appealing, and certainly a concept most appropriate to our charming, seaside, jewel of a community. I asked to see several of the rooms and marveled at the integration of the building's former Victoriana with its new clean and edgy contemporary sophistication. From window treatments, bed linens and upholstery to the stunning black and white marble baths, flat screen televisions and accent lighting, the effect was as soothing as it was aesthetically pleasing. I selected a spacious, open suite with sitting area that would have made a fabulous New York apartment. The views reinforced the diverse architectural beauty of Lewes, and the canal, one block away, shimmered. The handsome lobby, convenient restaurants and attentive,professional staff, provided an overall wonderful experience. The perfect winter escape. We hope to make it an annual tradition, if not more frequently. P.S. I've reserved five rooms in mid-April for a long weekend when my entire family arrives from New England to celebrate Mom's 90th birthday.
