Great Location

Posted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: Atmosphere
Cons: AC in the lower areas
Location: Locations is perfect for the beach, shopping and eating....
Free parking and use of the Cabana Club, again with free parking, on the beach is great. Great entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights on the front porch of the hotel. Very comfortable beds but the pillows could do with changing - lying on bags of sand come to mind. AC would be nice on the lower levels but once you get to the room levels the corridors are fully air conditioned and all rooms have window AC units. Best rooms at the back of the Hotel due to the noise from the entertainment and Atlantic Avenue. You do feel that you have stepped back in time with the decor and it has kept it's old world charm. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Old hotel with charm & character right on Atlantic

Posted Sep 23, 2013
Built in 1926, hotel has its own unique character and a short walk to great restaurants, live music, beach, nightlife, etc. Other than AC dripping, everything was awesome. Hotel manager was very knowledgeable about hotel history and was very helpful in resolving the AC issue. Had a great time here!

Our Delray home away from home

Posted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Lots of great restaurants and dancing. And the beach club is a quick 10 minute bike ride!
We always love to run away for a night and stay at The Colony Hotel. It embodies an amazing amount of old Florida charm with the hard wood floors, open air tarazzo floored lobby with nothing more than paddle fans to cool you there but wonderfully chilling modern air conditioning upstairs in your room, and vibrant colors. We love to be able to simply park the car and depend on our bikes for all the transportation we need to enjoy our stay at The Colony. The beach club is the icing on the cake and we can't wait to go back to enjoy the new fantastic pool now being built. It's one of our very favorite local get aways and we plan to return many more times!

A real classic Florida experience

Posted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: Staff, breakfasts, beds, rooms, beach, beach club, central location, unique charm.
We just spent 3 nights at The Colony and we couldn't have been more impressed. We pretty regularly stay at Marriots, Hiltons and other chain hotels which are fine but lack the character and charm that is bursting out of the Colony. The staff were friendly and eager to help in any way we asked. The beach (and the Colony beach club) were also impressive.

perfect getaway

Posted Sep 4, 2013
Pros: Very "Old Florida" throughout
Cons: No central air conditioning in the down stair common areas... it adds to the experience & is eco friendly - but was a bit warm in August.
Location: Eat, drink & take in Delray...
Staff was very helpful from check-in through check-out. Very "Old Florida" throughout... classic colors, gorgeous wood floors.

Charming place and unique experience!

Posted Sep 3, 2013
Pros: Location and charm.
Cons: We got the 2 bedroom and were travelling with kids, so it is a tight fit. but it just meant we did not spend a lot of time in the rooms.
Location: We love walking down Atlantic and discovering new places to eat. The drive down A1A is great.
This is our second time staying at the Colony. We love the ambiance, location and the service at both the Hotel and the Cabana. The rooms are small but the location and service make up for it. It is really like stepping back in time. We will definitely be back again!

Weekend trip

Posted Sep 2, 2013
The rooms were more in the classic style than other modern hotels. Everything was clean and comfortable. The best part of the hotel was the beach club and the outstanding continental breakfast.

Pleasant stay, but...

Posted May 18, 2013
Pros: Price and building location, but not room location
Our room was clean and well furnished, however room lighting could have been stronger. Also, we had a front corner room which exposed us to lots of street and vehicle noise. Not sure why that happened. Breakfast was more than adequate, with a nice variety to the offerings.

We are return guests

Posted May 9, 2013
Pros: Hotel front desk manager, John, and staff friendly and helpful. Love eating breakfast or having a drink and people watching on the hotel outside porch
Cons: New pool at the cabana club which is coming this summer.
Location: Walking, shelling, boating, and shopping if it rains.
Our son lives in the area and was married at the Cabana Club. We visit several times a year and always try to stay at the Colony when we visit.
