Greenwich Hospitality Group Opens the The Delamar on
Greenwich Harbor in Southport, Connecticut


GREENWICH / SOUTHPORT, CT – (June 21, 2010) Promising the ultimate in boutique hotel hospitality, the elegant New England-style building anchoring Southport Green at 275 Old Post Road has just been reborn as the new Delamar Southport hotel. A peek inside reveals a glimpse of the haute décor that has defined the Delamar hotel brand in Greenwich, where antiques and fine art mingle with refined interior details and luxury amenities.

“We are very excited to become part of the Southport community and look forward to providing guests with a personalized hotel experience that sets new standards in luxury hospitality for the area,” said Charles Mallory, managing partner of the new Delamar Southport, which joins the exclusive portfolio of luxury boutique hotels owned and operated by the Greenwich Hospitality Group. 
“We have a lot of surprises to reveal at our June 1st opening, including honoring talented residents who call Fairfield County home.”

Mallory said that the hotel was designed to reflect the classic upscale ambiance that has made the Gold Coast village a popular seaside retreat for generations, preserving the old world charm and sophisticated quality comforts of an exclusive 19th-century waterfront enclave, inside and out. The building stands as the cornerstone of a thoughtfully constructed development that has stayed true to the architectural heritage and timelessness of the village with a mix of Greek Revival, Italianate, Victorian, and Federal style influences. It fronts a village green in keeping with its old New England setting, where, hotel management says, outdoor dining and a fireplace will welcome visitors in the warmer months.

Gary Mitchell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Greenwich Hospitality Group said that “the lobby is an inviting prelude to what awaits in each of the 45 guest rooms and suites” with original artwork, soaring 10’ feet ceilings, handcrafted crown moldings and a fireplace with a French limestone mantle. The walls, boasting custom colors and finishes, are trimmed with designer touches and elegant fixtures. Floors recreated from ancient Jerusalem stone seamlessly blend history into the hotel’s modern day setting. 

“We want our guests to have an exceptional experience from the moment they walk through our doors,” said Mitchell, who has closely overseen the transformation of the hotel as local designers and artists have added their signature expertise to the overall décor. “Every room and suite has been individually designed and decorated to provide the ultimate getaway for our guests, whether they are here for just one or two nights or are planning an extended stay with us.”

The Delamar Southport features both standard and superior rooms with kitchen facilities – many equipped with washers and dryers for guests’ convenience – as well as spacious junior suites and 2- and 3-bedroom penthouse accommodations that include separate living and dining rooms, full marble baths with rain showers and deep soaking tubs, powder rooms, and hand-crafted custom kitchens designed by a leading home design firm. Each room pampers with Italian linens and premier Elemis and Bulgari spa products and toiletries. Hotel guests will have exclusive use of the hotel’s state-of the-art fitness room and private spa relaxation suite for massages and a wide range of personalized body care treatments.

“We are delighted to showcase the talents of area interior designers throughout our hotel,” said Charles Mallory, whose eye for hotel excellence has positioned the hotel’s flagship property, The Delamar on Greenwich Harbor, into a sought-after destination for idyllic Connecticut getaways. “The signature work of acclaimed local designers will reflect a standard of design and comfort that is not duplicated anywhere else, giving our guests the rare opportunity to enjoy exceptional interiors that are unique to our hotel.” 

Adding that the hotel has elicited inquiries from corporate travel managers and leisure guests for some time now, Gary Mitchell said “the hotel is already booked for many weddings, graduations and summer and fall getaways. And once our new restaurant opens later this year, we expect to become the community hub that the residents of Southport and the greater Fairfield area are looking forward to.”
