Had some beers with soup and sandwiches in the pub after a long drive in the rain. Enjoyed the pool and exercise room and the Colonial ambiance of the hotel. Very restful place to recharge on our way North. Staff was very courteous and helpful....More

We came back to the Desmond, having stayed there for our honeymoon 28 years ago. The hotel is as we remembered; upscale without being priced like the Plaza. Very nice furnishings and appointments, friendly and courteous staff, and a very comfortable and relaxing room.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean. The set up is very unique. You feel as if you are staying in a little town. The kids liked the pool. They were disappointed that they no longer have a hot tub....More

The stay sucked.....overpriced for no reason. Would never stay here again or recommend anyone else stay here. Sheets were stained and no amenities and hair was in the bathroom and the hallways smelled of urine.
