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.

There for a wedding. The affair was nice, rooms were nice. overall very good. Close to airport but it's not a typical airport hotel. Affair was well handled and the atriums are lovely. Rooms were nice - beds comfortable.
