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
My best friend and I always choose the Delamar in Greenwich.. it has the most lovely staff. Our rooms are kept very clean.. and we love shopping in the town of Greenwich and eating out there. We stayed on the fourth floor which was super nice... extra amenities.
We are here at Delamar at the moment and it is Magnificent and Beautiful, spectacular views.
Staff are so courteous and helpful.
The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and spotless.
It’s so peaceful and tranquil here, we won’t want to leave.
I literally called 5 minutes before leaving my house to run off to church to get MARRIED!! I called the Delamar to book a room for the evening and the customer service to say the least was AMAZING!! I had the privilege in speaking with the manager Hani who went above and beyond to make sure our wedding night ended perfectly! His genuine excitement the moment I said I was getting married made me that much more excited. From the moment we pulled up to the hotel EVERYONE knew we were the newlyweds (and greeting us by name) The moment we walked into our room we had a smile from ear to ear... Hani made sure we had the best of the best... icing on the cake... a hand written note congratulating us with champagne! Pretty hard to top that! We are FOREVER grateful!
I recently stayed at the hotel for 1 night while on a business trip.
The location of the hotel is great, right next door to the sea. Few rooms have the sea view, unfortunately mine did not. Great extra touch in offering us champagne while checking in. The bed was comfortable and cosy to sleep. The bathrooms were nice and spacious - no complaints at all. Another nice touch was the coffee/tea and light breakfast served in the lobby in the morning. The only downside i felt was there was no tea or coffee making machine in the room. Thats now become a basic necessity in any hotel.
Otherwise, its a great hotel to stay in.
The hotel is beautiful! Checking in with champagne and happy hour to follow was a great way to start the weekend. I loved the balcony and views - even in the cool weather it was fun to sit outside and watch the sunset.
We took the car service, which the hotel provides, into town and walked around.
The staff was wonderful and helpful. The details of the hotels are amazing! I had help bringing up my luggage and the bellboy took my coat and hung it up for me!
I will return again and highly recommend the hotel!
