We stayed at the Brick Hotel last weekend and truly enjoyed our stay. Our room was a good size and everything was perfect: clean, comfortable, modern but with a lot of old charm. There were free beverages and snacks, and even individual bathrobes, in the room - a luxury often found only in 4-5 stars hotels. The owners and staff were extremely nice and helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, but it is particularly convenient to those who are on their way to or from a day at the beach - Rehoboth is about 30-40 minutes drive from the hotel.
The restaurant was a pleasant setting and promising menu - but to match the quality of the hotel, there is room for improvement in the implementation. The staff is really trying hard and deserves training so they can be more professional in that formal environment. The menu is quite diversified (though it takes some doing to locate the dinner part of the menu; hint: it's after the wine list). The food itself unfortunately lacks subtlety. My partner's crab cakes were good but the plate was dominated by sweet potatoes over-cooked and over-powered by the taste of cinnamon. My shrimp ravioli were submerged in a thick white sauce. The ravioli themselves were good but the delicate flavor of the shrimp needs a more judicious sauce. All but one of the desserts are chocolate, and the restaurant doesn't serve espresso.
Overall, our meal was good, but if the same high standards applied to the hotel could be applied to the restaurant - it could have been great.
