A Day of Elegance at Rehoboth Beach

Boardwalk Plaza Hotel

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Yesterday was forecasted to be in the low 70s!  So we decided Thursday to drive down to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and stay at one of the hotels on the boardwalk Friday night.   This is very unusual for us...we usually go RVing and stay at a campground. 

Rehoboth Beach is about a two hours drive south of our home.  We have eaten at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel  on visits through the area previously and we hoped to get a nice room there and stay the night.

  Upon arriving we discovered that all the ocean front rooms were taken but we got an ocean view room on the side of the hotel.  

The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel

Our room was on this side of the hotel.  

We were very pleased with the room and the view.  

The hotel's philosophy is to take one back to the Victorian times when people were treated to elegance and superior service.  Their advertisement states "Where PAMPERING is everything"!    

The lobby sitting area.

We had to use the flash to take this photo because there is not much natural light in this area of the hotel.  This is part of the lobby and through the windows is a very large hot tub that is both indoors and out.  

These were the most comfortable beds we have had at an hotel and I loved the Victorian decor of our suite!

The bathroom is between the bedroom and sitting room which overlooks the ocean.  

Look at this lovely piece of furniture for the vanity cabinet in the bathroom.

And here's another view from our suite of the boardwalk and the Atlantic Ocean!

Rehoboth is a very popular resort town on the East Coast!

Looking down Rehoboth Ave. the main street of Rehoboth Beach.

Stores with just about anything one could want lined Rehoboth Avenue.  

Our hotel is this way down the boardwalk.
This is early Saturday morning before the crowds have gathered.

Sweetie and I having breakfast before walking the boardwalk and heading home.

If you go to a resort town in the state of New Jersey "one is going to the shore" but if you go to a resort town in the states of Delaware or Maryland "one is going to the beach"!

As former Mid-Westerners whenever we have gone on vacation to the East Coast we have always "gone to the beach". 

Back home today and after one day of 70 degree F. weather our trees are starting to bud out!  It's not as warm today just 58 degrees F. but it is still sunny and pretty out.

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for coming on a visual tour of Rehoboth Beach with us.

  11. Hi Sandy!
    Just read your blog about Rehoboth Beach, DE and your stay at The Boardwalk Plaza. I just wanted to tell you that you have great taste in travel. Me and my Fiance got engaged on the rooftop at The Boardwalk Plaza on Feb. 16th, 2008 and we will be getting married on the rooftop on Oct. 29th 2011 !!! It is a very tranquil and peaceful place to be. Just being at Rehoboth Beach and ESPECIALLY The Boardwalk Plaza really gives you a feeling of comfort and enjoyment. Thank you for posting such a beautiful blog about my favorite place! It was so nice to see someone write about it! Take care and happy trails to you!
