Just a quick review of a gem of a hotel in Delray Beach. Coming up from Miami it seems a world away. The location right on Atlantic puts you in the midst of dozens of shops, cafes and restaurants. Suffice it to say that this hotel possesses a charm that could only come with it being 85 years old. Even the elevator is "manned". Ya don't see that very often.
The rooms are old Florida and casual. With wooden floors, tropical open lobby with bar. Rooms have comfy beds, flat screen TVs, iPod docks, lots of closet space, bathroom is roomy and has Gilchrist & Soames English toiletries. Free breakfast is served until 10am daily. Hot and cold choices (eggs, sausage, hash, oatmeal, toast, muffins and changes slightly each day. Also, they have a decent cup of coffee & yummy juices .
They have a Cabana club about a mile or two away on a private stretch of beach. You can drive there and park for free or they have a shuttle to take you. At the club they offer private, 2 person cabanas, lounge chairs, umbrellas, towels and pitchers of filtered ice water and they are ALL complimentary.
They have a decent restaurant on premises with short lunch hours but it's good for a sandwich, salad or drink. I want to mention as well that they are totally cool with bringing an ice chest to the beach. We had imported cheeses, meats and wines and spent a full day in our cabana chilling and passing the day away. HEAVEN!
Lastly they have a saltwater pool which is heated. The changing rooms and showers are clean & private at club. They offer yoga at the hotel but never had a chance to partake (late nights and early mornings....not my friend). The front desk was helpful and even dragged our ice-chest and filled it up with ice before & after beach days! OH and the parking at the hotel is FREE.
Hope this helps, enjoy!
