This was our second time here.. Just as great as the first! The staff is so friendly, the breakfast is great.. And the cabana club is out of this world! We come to Delray beach just for the beach... No crowds, lots of space and a pool too! We will be back!

Spent four nights here after a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. Definitely charming, quaint but old. Floors are wood, and definitely sagging, so we were a little worried walking to the room on the uneven floor, but we got used to it. We did enjoy our stay and would go back for a couple of nights. If you don't enjoy...

My wife is a flight attendant and I travel regularly as well. We are usually not the type for older properties, but the Colony has a very nice touch. Maybe it was Christmas decorations and the holiday music. From the caged, manually operated 1926 elevator to the woodwork and rooms this place is quite charming. We stayed one night to...

Having chosen this hotel on the internet and not knowing what to expect my husband, I, and another couple were thoroughly satisfied at the Colony. It is an old historic hotel that has been preserved by the same family since 1929. there are beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the walls are tastefully painted in vibrant colors. There is an open...

We spent one night here and it was wonderful. The hotel was very clean, the staff were very helpful, we loved the charm of the decor. The beach club & cabanas was a true oasis - relaxing and serene. We can't wait to stay at their other property in Kennebunkport ME and will hopefully be back to Delray Beach sometime...

Just finished 21 tranquil days and nights at the Colony. You get to know a place in all that time, so here goes: There are a couple of snazzier hotels close by, but this hotel is the best value for the money in town! Rooms are kept spotless by a dedicated housekeeping staff, the water is HOT, the free wifi...

We loved the Colony Hotel. It is a historic hotel. Do not confuse that with being run down or dirty. It is immaculate. The hard wood floors literally shine. PROS: So location is the biggest plus. You walk out the front door and you are on Atlantic Ave in the middle of all of the shops and restaurants. The front...

The Colony is a retro throw back to another time. It is a historic location and situated nicely right on Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach, FL. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are available, but not engaged (a bit much social media on cell phones I would guess based on observation). The room was small, but neat....

This hotel is far from average. Wide hallways, an historic elevator that still operates, an open old ballroom now used for yoga, actual keys for your room... It's quite the experience. As a historic hotel, most rooms are fairly small, but the funky vibe of this place is worth it. Located directly on Atlantic Ave, the location is perfect. Walking...
