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
Unfortunately, I was only able to stay one night at this beautiful property. I look forward to finding myself returning to this gorgeous hotel again in the future.
The staff was prompt, polite, professional, and very welcoming. The room was clean and featured a beautiful patio with views overlooking the water. I wish I would've had the opportunity to take advantage of the complimentary Tesla service.
As an added bonus, it was obvious that this property was not part of a chain of hotels. The holiday decorations and little touches made it feel more like a B&B. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!
This is a grand hotel for a reasonable price. Clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Great hotel with a fancy coffee machine for those in a rush to get going. I did not stay for breakfast but it looked like there was some nice food placed out and it looked delicious.
the view was beautiful! the staff was very attentive to all of our needs at all times. I think that the prices are reasonable, some could be taken down a notch but nothing too concerning. everything is clean and comfy!
Was my first time to stay here and this is an absolutely beautiful hotel. Lots aloft attention to detail. The staff working at the hotel were exceptional and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
My experience at the Delamar Hotel was top notch. I was greeted with a choice of champagne or water. The room was beautiful and they provided an umbrella among other complimentary items for the event I was attending at the hotel. They provide complimentary car service (Tesla) within a 3 mile radius of the hotel. They also accommodated all requests without hesitation. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying near the Greenwich/Fairfield County area.
