Attended our company's Christmas Party at the Grand Delmar and stayed the night, even though we live less than 25 minutes away. The extraordinary customer service started with the valet parking and ended with the valet parking. Getting the royal treatment was a very nice treat, and certainly the best I've experienced in this country. The hotel and ammenities were outstanding, and the rooms are quite nice and very very quiet. Soaking in the deep tub after a long day was extremely relaxing. The rapid fill of the tub was an unexpected surprise. The TV in the bathroom was nice, but when at a five star hotel it is better to appreciate the moment versus watching football. We had breakfast at the Amaya. it was a bit pricey; however, the quality and service were exceptional. I had the three egg omelet with a croisant which was exceptional. I was told the croisants were made at the hotel. My wife had the smoked salmon dish and she raved about it. I must add ... for my wife to rave about any dish, is noteworthy and rare. We were not impressed with the banquet cuisine; however, when serving to more than 100 people - our expectations not never too high.

This place is amazing. The staff and the attention to detail from the minute you walk into the lobby has been fantastic. The room is beautifully done and the bathroom is fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and scenic. It has been the a wonderful Christmas experience. If you are looking for a top notch vacation this is the place to come to. You'll be incredibly happy here.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room here.

I stayed here for 2 nights in November whilst on business in the area, this is truly a splendid hotel with great facilities in a wonderful location. Staff excelled in all areas and although I dined each night in the hotel they also offer a coffee shop with great produce for breakfast and lunch. Bar staff very friendly and Amaya the more informal restaurant was really good, waiting staff new the menus well and were able to match wines when asked. Great job and can't wait to return !!!

This is a wonderful hotel and experience. If you read any of the reviews, they are hard pressed to describe just how grand this hotel is. The only down side was that we were there when the golf course fall winterization was being done, so the course was a little rough around the greens. We will be back though. A great place for a special event like anniversary or birthday, or just a very peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from those that open to the deck off the lobby bar as it can get a little noisy at...
