My wife and I stayed at the Seagate Hotel while visiting relatives in Delray Beach, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this new hotel
The hotel is a four-story boutique hotel that's two-blocks from the public beach. The lobbly has interesting aquariums on display, and there's a gift shop that's quite nice. There's an upscale lunch/dinner restaurant, and a small cafe -- both are excellent. Room service is offered 24 hours a day.
The onsite pool is small and the pool area can be crowded -- but the hotel has a beach house (right on the beach) that's a short complimentary ride away (either via their SUV or old-style trolley).
The beach house has an extenisve beachfront, with chairs and umbrellas provided. Two restaurants (one casual and one more formal) are excellent. There's also a small pool.
The rooms are deluxe, with exceptional bedding and luxury amenities. As others have stated, the service is superb.
Be aware that you can obtain several discounts by going to the hotel's website: during the summer of 2010, there was a 30% off special offer, and a separate $50 off per night resort credit. The discounts have different requirements, but are definitely worth checking out.
There are hidden charges -- like many hotels, they do charge $10 per day for Internet Access. And of course there are the usual taxes. But they also charge $25 per day as a Resort Fee. I was aware of this before reserving our room, but it could be a surprise for unsuspecting guests. My advice is to call or email the hotel and ask about any fees other than room charges, before reserving.
Finally, the hotel was very accomodating about granting our request for late check-out. By checking out in the afternoon, we were able to fully enjoy another day in Delray.
I think it's worth comparing this hotel to the Marriott Delray Beach, where we have often stayed. The Marriott is a block away -- right across the road from the public beach. The Marriott has a big hotel feel -- a large lobby with a lobby bar with weekend entertainment, meeting/function rooms, two large pool areas. If you want a "big pool" experience, stay at the Marriott. If you want a more luxurious vacation, stay at the Seagate. You'll enjoy your stay at both resorts.
