“Worth the price if you don't mind driving to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This hotel has a lot of character, and offers you a hotel with Old Florida Charm. That being said, it's very simple. There is breakfast and free yoga. That's about it. There is not an exercise room that I could find.

It's in a great location for food and shops, but it's not as close to the beach as you can get. It's about a five minute drive to the Cabana Club. The Club is quiet and nice with friendly staff.

The hotel staff is very friendly. Their computer was working, and I needed to print something and the staff behind the desk found a way to make that happen.

It's a simple hotel in a great location worth the price if you don't mind driving to the beach or taking their shuttle.

Great Historic Hotel with Florida "flair" and loads of character! Without exception, our guests loved their stay at the Hotel and the reception (at the Hotel's Cabana Club on the beach) was perfect! Service was excellent, most notably for me anyway @ the lobby bar, where Wes recalled my name from a visit in March. ;-)
The hotel is within walking distance of the A1A Hwy / public beach but more importantly is in the heart of the Atlantic Ave area surrounded by great restaurants!

I went back specifically to stay at the colony after having taken a picture of it when we went to a meeting at the Marriott in Delray Beach. It reminded me of some place Hemmingway would have stayed only updated with bright beautiful colors that I adored. The staff was friendly and accommodating; the buffet breakfasts in the lobby were bountiful and allowed for friendly conversation among the guests. The elevator was a relic that they ran for you as a service like in an old time dept. store. The room was clean- you could eat off the floors. They will shuttle you down to their Cabana Club right on the water. We were late one day and they turned around and came back for us. How nice is that? We'll be back.oh, and they have a flamingo guitarist one night a week on the patio steps, just outside their bar.

Room Tip: I like an "orange" floor. (They alternated greens/turquoise and coral/oranges) We could wa...

We were attending a wedding in Delray Beach and after seeing the reviews, thought this would be a neat place to stay. From the original elevator, to the bright colors, clean rooms and breakfast on the front porch, it was wonderful! Saturday night, we came back and relaxed to the sounds of Classical Spanish Guitar. Remember to drive to the beach club, as it's not right across the street.

We live nearby but spent a night here for our anniversary. It is an old historic hotel with lots of charm. The rooms are clean and very nice. Free transport and use of the beach club so you have the best of both worlds. Downtown and the beach. The only problem we have ever had is the bar. We like to go downtown to have a cocktail and the bar and patio are very nice but the service every time we go is very poor. Sometimes they have someone playing music which is very nice but in serious need of good bartender.

From the first time we stayed at this classic Florida hotel, we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding guests stay. John Creaven is by far one of the most sincere, accommodating, and patient people we dealt with during our wedding process. His staff was phenomenal. Our guests could not stop raving about the hotel. Simply a perfect hotel to set the tone for our wedding.
