We had an extremely enjoyable experience at the Desmond. Our dinner was delightful...lobster bisque was delicious and French onion soup was huge! Their famous bread pudding was everything expected plus more!

We came back to the Desmond, having stayed there for our honeymoon 28 years ago. The hotel is as we remembered; upscale without being priced like the Plaza. Very nice furnishings and appointments, friendly and courteous staff, and a very comfortable and relaxing room.

Friendly staff and good food. The hotel is a bit outdated with slow internet. Don't get an inside room if you want a window or peaceful sleep, noisy courtyard. The location is good and VERY close to the airport and the highway.
