Truly a Wisconsin treasure……..
I had the opportunity to stay this past weekend at the The Delafield Hotel, located on the old Lang corporate properties, in Delafield, which is one of our states quaintest little villages.
Upon entering this charming small hotel you are wonderfully turned back in time to what an “American Inn” should truly be. It is old world breath taking with an elegant charm in boasting antique furniture, true American art and wonderfully carved woodwork thru out the hotel.
The hotel was hosting a wedding when I arrived, which in itself added to the romance of this property. It was extremely lively which would have put anyone into great spirits. A reception at this hotel would be a dream come true for any bride. The perfect place to have an occasion of any sort that would exude class and sophistication.
I explored the hotel and all its nooks and glory on the way to my room. The hotel has three floors. The décor it perfectly appointed in the same ambiance that greeted me in the lobby. Upon opening my room I was actually amazed at the perfect detail of my oversized suite. I truly wished that I would be able to stay forever……especially with that fully stocked mini-bar, nice flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo system. It was a beautiful room in every way.
The bed was heaven, covered in high quality crisp Egyptian cottons, with a nice puffy comforter, over sized soft luxury towels and his/hers bathrobes that you will need once you step into one of the most spacious bathroom experiences you will ever have in your life, unless your last name is Kohler, which just happens is be the brand of the exquisite spa bath and greatest shower on earth. A small flat screen is also in your bathroom along with multiple Aveda products, which had me at “hello”! The extra amenities you can order would let anyone out of the dog house, so to speak. This perfect get a way for anyone looking to be truly romanced or forgiven?
The staff was five star, which in today’s hotel world is sometimes hard to find. The bar area is intimately cozy, and if you are a wine connoisseur they have an extensive wine collection. The dining is superb and the ambiance beyond compare. I did see that they had several areas to hold meetings/events in that looked lovely.
In reading other reviews on this property I feel that just maybe the appreciation for a small luxury hotel nestled in a vey quaint setting was lost. This is not a chain hotel.
The Delafield Inn is a property to which you will want to compare all hotels to and for me personally I wish that this hotel has duplicated in every city I need to travel to, near and far.
