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
Our room was large, clean, and quiet. The window was large and expansive enough to view a magnificent harbor with a walking area for you to choose the yacht you'll purchase either in reality or imaginatively.
The perfect hotel in Greenwich. Easy walk to into town and to the Bruce Museum. Right on the harbor. Very friendly, unpretentious staff. Large comfortable rooms. The rooms facing the water are worth the premium
We had only a few days so didn’t want to waste time traveling. At just 1 hr 20 minutes away this fit the bill. The hotel itself and the view from the room made us feel like we were truly away from work and our daily life. Very sweet staff, picturesque surroundings and we could even bring our doggy who loved lying on her hotel bed on the balcony. Clean, comfortable and neat. Restaurants and shopping blocks away. I recommend this for a quick get away. Only recommendation to management is getting the restaurant to be more pet friendly and maybe extend wine and cheese beyond the weekend. Or have early evening drinks and snacks available- even at a cost. But otherwise pleasant from check in to check out.
