Simply Inspiring. Simply Elegant. Simply the Most Memorable.

The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center was founded in 1974 upon the uncompromising attention to detail by its original designer, John K. Desmond, Jr. Priding himself on superb accommodations and the goal to do more than "just rent rooms", Mr. Desmond handpicked unique items and antiques for the 323 room hotel. The elegance of each guest room and suite is inspired by the colonial decor of early Philadelphia and Colonial Williamsburg, providing the guest with a unique experience unlike any other.

Each guest room features hand-crafted woodwork, finely detailed fabrics, china lamps, and a writing desk with complimentary WiFi and hard-wired Internet access. Many of our guest rooms also feature a private balcony overlooking our beautiful indoor courtyards with year-round landscaping, fountains and koi pond.

For your convenience, check-in is at 4:00pm and check-out is at 12:00pm.
