The wrought iron balconies, tiled roof, pastel stucco walls and private dock at the Delamar feel more like a Mediterranean villa than a hotel in the patrician enclave of Greenwich, Connecticut. But the easy escape factor will keep guests grounded in reality.
Bed and Bath
Classic comfort and traditional touches mark the 82 guestrooms and suites. Impressionist landscapes line the damask walls, while embroidered Italian linens cover the beds. Guests will find spacious marble bathrooms, classic European-style decor and, in harborside rooms, balconies with an all-season view of Greenwich Harbor’s glittering waters.
It’s all old-school New England in the lobby, where guests gather for espresso or a glass of wine and where breakfast is served beside the floor-to-ceiling windows. Head up the scrolled wrought iron staircase to the Elemis Spa for a facial or a massage. No need to ponder the dinner possibilities in Greenwich: L’Escale restaurant is one of the top tables in town. The tasty Provençal cuisine and the lovely water views will have you planning a return visit.
In the Area
There’s plenty to do in Greenwich, one of the nation’s most desirable zip codes. A five-minute walk from the hotel is the Bruce Museum of Art and Science, which features an exhibit of 30 works by photographer Cindy Sherman drawn from 10 local collections. The Bruce is one of 15 worthwhile stops on the wonderful Connecticut Art Trail. (There’s even an iPhone app to guide museum-hoppers.) For local color head to Arcadia Coffee (20 Arcadia Road) in Old Greenwich, where you can sip fantastic coffee, admire local art and eavesdrop on terrifically juicy nanny gossip if you get there just after 9 a.m. Getting fresh air is no problem: Jog, bike or practice some ground strokes at nearby Bruce Park. There’s even a green for lawn bowling. Or wander down to lovely Tod’s Point Beach.
How to Get There
This Hotel exceeded our expectations. It was clean, very courteous staff, great amenities including a Tesla curtesy car. Close to amazing shopping and restaurants. Only drawback was we couldn’t stay longer!
My husband and I just returned from our second stay at this marvelous hotel in the last month. My son and his family live in a nearby town, and we decided to make it more of a vacation combined with a visit with family. In June we stayed here on graduation weekend and this little visit was combined with our July 4 family celebration. Everything about the hotel is top notch, starting with the wonderful staff at the front desk. They are so helpful and go out of their way to please as do the friendly valets. The rooms are lovely, spacious, clean and inspire the feeling of being at a European seaside resort. We look forward to returning very soon. Oh almost forgot—the restaurant L’Escale is terrific!!!
The Delemar is a Greenwich institution and deservedly so. A beautiful harborside location just 5 minutes from Greenwich Avenue. The rooms are beautiful and the staff very friendly. No pretention, just a comfortable, luxurious place to stay in the city.
We spent a night here enrte Portland, ME. Hotel offers free self-parking which allows you a 2 block walk to the main shopping street in Greenwich, CT. It sits on a nice canal and we thought the extra few dollars we spent to get a room overlooking the water was money well spent. Hotel is well-maintained and the staff was friendly and efficient. Free breakfast had pasties, rolls, and some fruit.
Comfortable rooms, good service. Very hospitable, with a doggie bed, a chew toy, snacks, food and water bowls in the room. My owners dined at L’Escale, for both dinner and breakfast, and were pleased. The only negative is the coffee bar in the lobby doesn’t open until 7 am, so if you want an early start to your day, you need to go elsewhere. And it would be nice if dogs were allowed on the outdoor deck of the restaurant, as they are at other spots!
