I stayed one night for business. Great location and walking distance to a company I was visiting in Malvern. The room was confortable and clean (mostly). I arrived late and left early so there's not much I can comment on but the staff at the front desk were very helpfull in storing my luggage while I went to my business...

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!). The room was comfortable and we used the restaurant in...

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.

Stayed at the Desmond for a conference in October. The conference facilities are for the most part quite good. Internet connection was good and the meals were fine. On the other hand the hotel needs a facelift more or less across the board. The rooms are quite dated. The pillows are horrible. Random hairs in the sheets and bathroom were...

Dear Singdunum011; Thanks for your review, and your feedback. I'm glad you generally liked your visit and I am sorry about the pieces that weren't up to our standard. Our pillows are all synthetic down, and generally well received. I'll look into all comments regarding your room. We will continue to make improvements to our property as we do every...

This was a wedding trip. The rooms, as many say, need updating. The doors and walls are thin so you hear everything in the halls and the room next door. Room and bath were clean, though there was a water stain from a slow drip under the sink that had not been addressed. They are understaffed in the restaurants. Breakfast...

We stayed at the Desmond for a wedding that was held at another venue. The after party and breakfast was held at the Desmond. They did a wonderful job all around. The rooms were so beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend the Desmond Hotel.

The room was on the dark side, unless all the lamps were progressively turned on. The 4 poster bed appeared rather charming but the mattress quality was poor, stiff, & uncomfortable. The sheets didn't feel soft and the thin blanket between the sheets wasn't warm enough, but when the bedspread was used as well, it felt too hot. Enough outlets...

“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).”
