We found this hotel by accident in searching for places to stay on our way home. We arrived in Milton mid-afternoon. The hotel staff was helpful and our Golden Retriever was welcome. The room was rather small but it was substancial with a great comfortable bed, pillows, etc. The bathroom was nice with a big shower. The doorknob kept coming off-a laughable event.
I would not give it a 5-star rating, but it certainly was very good. Overall, the stay was nice except for a couple of problems. First, their restaurant (misnamed the Delmonico Room) was a disappointment. First, it's nothing like the Delmonico in NYC which we've been to and love. Its a rather modern sterile place. The waitress showed us the menu -- it was way overpriced--fixed price--and the choices were not something we wanted anyway. The wine menu was not impressive and so we ate downstairs in the Bar, which was good but very noisy (esp. the screaming children). The staff were nice. The breakfast was a disapointment-advertised as a full breakfast, it was nothing more than granola and yogurt and grapefruit. Their "hot" meal wasnt served until 9. I ordered a latte and the waitress gladly brought it to me--and i ordered another but was then presented with a 10 dollar bill. Never a mention it was not complementary with the expensive room. I asked the manager to remove it from my bill, but the waitress had to come in and argue the point while I was standing there--it was rather embarassing for everyone. It's a small point but nevertheless something that a luxury hotel (or adertised as one) should have avoided. Overall, thus, the hotel is a nice 3-4 star place, a decent restaurant down in the bar, and nice, but expensive and small rooms. The town was really nothing to see. And I wondered really why people would come there from NYC as a getaway. We live in Vermont, which has some really spectacular hotels and restaurants for the same price, and that's a getaway, altho further.
In any case, we've stayed at literally dozens of hotels throughout the US and Europe. I would certainly recommend the place as a nice place to stay if you're in Milton. Certianly not a destination for great food.
