The grounds are beautiful, the hotel is warm and inviting. We ate at the restaurant for Sunday brunch. I have to say it is the best I have ever been to. Food was great! Service was awesome! We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend The Desmond.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

This hotel was a terrific getaway for a weekend - it looks like a busy business hotel for week days. Several excellent restaurants to chose from in the hotel, all very well managed. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We had a standard double room that was very comfortable and a nice size. The only complaint is that...

We had our daughter's wedding here on Jan 14th. It was outstanding. Karen was in charge of it and she did an amazing job. Everything was very well organized. We had plenty of appetizers and open bar during cocktail hour. Very well staffed. Salads and dinner were super. The dinners were hot and filet tender. The evening flowed beautifully and...

I can’t comment on the hotel rooms themselves from personal experience, but conference attendees indicated the walls were very thin and felt as though they vibrated at night (heating? noise?). However, I did attend a several day conference here and the same vibration thing occurred in our conference room as well. Food was average. There was a big buffet selection,...

Dear KCW25; Thanks for your feedback, I am surprised to read it and sorry you had the experience with the food, as you can see we typically receive very high marks on the vast majority of our reviews. I am sorry we missed the mark on your meal. Our guestrooms are block concrete every other wall with the alternating walls...

The customer service was great. We had a king size bed which was firm and very high. I could have used a step stool to get into the bed. The room was clean and very quiet they could upgrade the shower head as it was like a garden hose spray. The food and service in the Hunt Room was great....

I stayed one night for business. Great location and walking distance to my company offices in Malvern. Pros: Location is central and close to highway, restaurants and short driving distance from Wegmans and KOP mall. Across (Walking distance) from several small stores and a Wawa where you can get good quality food. This is also one of the safest neighborhoods...

Stayed here on a visit to a local company. No complaints. Nice clean rooms, good bar to hang out with colleagues after work and a decent restaurant. Would stay here again if circumstances brought me back to the area.

This hotel was a comfortable place to stay for a family event in town. It was a 25 minute drive to downtown Philadelphia and Independence Hall, a quick drive to Valley Forge Park, and close to downtown Malvern which had some cute shops and restaurants (the Malvern Buttery was amazing!).

Very nice hotel. Rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Attended a Wedding at nearby inn. Staff was very accommodating and transported guests to and from the wedding venue. Enjoyed a wonderful buffet breakfast the next morning. Great place to explore the Valley Forge area.

“It may be a long walk but if you have a room at the end of the hall it may be quieter.”

“Location of the hotel is in an suburban-like setting so the rooms are probably quiet everywhere (unless you have noisy neighbors).”
