    A lovely hotel that can accommodate large and small events. You are made to feel welcome and within the hotel it looked like you were on a small street courtyard with koi pond and garden. It was inviting and relaxing.

    Beautiful Property and attentive staff. The Tavern was a nice place to meet up and have a few cocktails before dinner, Heather was wonderful!! The food in the Tavern was delicious and there was a nice variety but the food at the buffets and luncheons...More

    This was a beautiful place to stay. Very clean, beds and pillows just like home. While I didn't stay long, the hotel seemed to have everything you may need. Not your normal "chain" hotel... just charming!!!! Hope that never changes...

    The place is beautiful. The room was very nice. The only complaint that I have is that the shower was very high up and wasn't adjustable. The food was excellent. The staff was extremely friendly. All in all we had a great time. Thank you!

    The last time I was at the Desmond I reserved through a hotel reservation website. This was the stated cancellation policy (but it's possible that this applies only to that website?): If canceled or modified up to 1 day... More
