How to Get There
The fire place in the room was very impressive.
Wi-fi was excellent.
I felt secure with at the location.
The breakfast buffet was very good. The staff in the restaurant were all very friendly.
I will come again.
I travel 3-4 days a week for business and have the luxury to visit many “very nice” properties. However, the Delamar in Southport always exceeds expectations. I arrange my travel based on the availability of this hotel, this is the only hotel I base my travel schedule around.
From the moment I step on the property, I am greeted and welcomed back. The front desk staff are always friendly, professional and welcoming. The rooms are spectacular, very clean and comfortable. The restaurant on the property is fabulous! The Delamar Southport offers a delicious breakfast buffet from 7-10am, which is a great way to start the day. The atmosphere in the restaurant in the evening is cool and the food is outstanding!
I absolutely love everything about staying at the Delamar Southport. I will continue to arrange my travel around their availability, it’s absolutely worth it. This is my favorite place to stay!!
Well done. Thank you Delamar Southport team!
The Delamar was wonderful in every way. While I was attending a wedding off site, I sustained an orthopedic injury that caused great pain during the night. The front desk employee, John went out of his way to bring ice. He called periodically to see if I needed to get to a hospital and helped that whole process along. Found a wheelchair, picked me up at the room and could not have been more attentive. Really nice when you are out of town and don’t want to wake friends staying in the hotel.
Also my deluxe guest room was huge, the beds are amazingly comfortable, and the food is fantastic - both in The Tavern and at a dinner party in a private room there. All employees were welcoming and helpful.
Everything about the Delamar is terrific. Service is impeccable, rooms are clean and full of amenities, but the beds are too hard. New temerpedic mattresses are a must. Even my wife couldn’t sleep on them, and she likes very firm.
Overall the property is really lovely - modern yet cozy.
Loved that there was a fitness room - albeit tiny. Restaurant quality/service at Artisan was solid. Nice bar area. The included breakfast was unexpected and good - not just croissants and fruit.
Our room was super cozy. Bathroom was large and nice but could use an updated shower.
Would stay again for sure.
