If you’re looking for a short, relaxing trip to escape from New York City, take a weekend getaway at the Delamar Hotel & Spa in Greenwich Harbor or West Hartford, Connecticut. Aside from being close to New York City, both properties are self-contained with restaurants and spas, so there’s no need to leave. It’s a perfect way to ease back into travel after being stuck in New York City during the pandemic.
These Delamar properties just reopened following the pandemic closures, and are taking extensive safety precautions for all hotel, spa, and restaurant guests. Face masks are required, and temperature checks are taken before entry to the spas. Special disinfection protocols are also in place.
The Delamar Greenwich Harbor location featuresthe L’Escale Restaurant, which serves incredible food. You can eat outside and enjoy the harbor view which is right next to the hotel. I visited the hotel for a short trip, and loved that once I arrived, I did not have to leave the property. There is a free continental breakfast, and lunch and dinner are also available.
The spa is conveniently located on the second floor of the hotel. Notably, the spa changing rooms and waiting areas are now closed, so guests just go directly to their appointments. You can still enjoy your treatment without having to travel outside and can relax in your room or outside when the treatment is over. The spa incorporates products and treatments from Valmont, which is an incomparable luxury skincare brand that always makes my skin glow. My skin was incredibly smooth and hydrated after my Custom Facial with Remodeling Machine. There are a wide variety of other facial treatments to choose from, including an Ionixlight Facial with diamond dermabrasion and LED light therapies. Massages include an Aromatherapy Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Lymphatic Drainage Massage, among others.
The West Hartford location is larger than the Greenwich Harbor property, and has a great restaurant called The Artisan. The cuisine is fantastic, and there is indoor and outdoor dining in the garden area behind the restaurant. It is an herb and vegetable garden that also has apple and pear trees, supplying fresh food to the restaurant.
The spa is also located in the hotel and treatments are like those offered at the Greenwich Harbor property. The estheticians and massage therapists are also highly skilled. I thoroughly enjoyed my aromatherapy massage and being able to relax in my room after my treatment.
You can’t go wrong visiting either of these Delamar properties, and although there are similarities, each has its own unique atmosphere and cuisine.
