The Desmond Hotel will officially convert to The Desmond Malvern, a DoubleTree by Hilton

Dear Friends,

As we continue to move towards the future, we are excited to begin our partnership with Hilton early next year.  The Desmond will convert to The Desmond Malvern a DoubleTree by Hilton (a soft-branded property).  Being a soft-branded property allows us to maintain our well-recognized name as well as the same dedicated staff, ownership, restaurants and Executive Chef.  If you are a frequent traveler to our hotel, the unique Desmond qualities that have always appealed to you will remain constant with a fresh new look!

Along with the conversion to Hilton comes a full remodel of our hotel.  The design intent is a modern take on traditional d├ęcor and will incorporate local inspirations as well as those of Philadelphia and the great state of Pennsylvania.  During this time, we will remain fully operational.  Although extensive, the renovation involves mostly soft goods (fabric, carpet, wall covering and tile work) and should have little operational and service disruption.  If at any time, you wish to discuss concern, please do not hesitate to call us at 610-296-9800 to be connected to a supervisor or me.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our exciting new partnership.   On behalf of all of my staff at The Desmond, we look forward to seeing you soon.


Michael Chain
General Manager
