What’s new? It might sound like small talk, but what’s new can mean big things, too! Here at The Desmond, we have big news about what’s new. We’ll be debuting a brand-new look and name, as The Desmond you know becomes The Desmond Malvern, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

While our spirit and staff will remain the same, our accommodations and amenities will see a plethora of upgrades to better serve all of our guests, starting with DoubleTree’s signature chocolate chip cookie upon check-in. Our name will change just slightly, and our commitment to being the best full-service hotel in Chester County will be stronger than ever.

The Why

Why the switch? In short, we’re always seeking to offer more to our customers. Our extensive renovations will total approximately $5 million when complete. You’ll enjoy the upgrades, including the brand-new:

  • Marble bathroom vanities.
  • Beautiful new carpeting.
  • Furniture, art and decor.
  • Bath products.
  • Tiled showers in suites.
  • Restaurant furniture, lighting, decor and menu.
  • Pub furnishings, menu and lighting.
  • A new made-market for on-the-go items.
  • Brand-new fitness equipment and flooring.
  • Pool tiles and paint and new lounges.

Our front desk registration will have a new look and feel, and even our lobby will be completely redone with new furniture, carpets, paint and a grand chandelier. That means as soon as you walk in the door, you’ll be struck by all the changes we’ve made — and change is good.

Our burgeoning affiliation with DoubleTree by Hilton will help us offer even more, because we’ll have the full support of one of the nation’s leading hotel chains. You know the saying “Go big or go home?” Well, we’re going big so that for however long you stay with us, you’ll always feel like you’re at home.

More for You and Your Business

Some might tell you to keep business and pleasure separate, but what if they just happen at the same time naturally? When you stay with us, you can’t help but be pleased, and all of our changes are making us even more business-friendly than ever. Our renovations will update our:

  • Business center.
  • IACC-approved conference center.
  • Meeting rooms display new carpets, furniture and ergonomic chairs.

So whether you’re staying for business, pleasure or both, you will rest easy knowing we have everything you need to make your stay with us great.

Some Things Stay the Same

Some things are so good that you never want them to change. We’ll still be family-owned, and the same exceptional staff will be here to help you from the first minute of your stay to the last. Quality amenities, amazing service, incredible food and a warmth that you can only find here will continue to be the constant. While we’re changing with the times, we will still remain true to what keeps our guests coming back.

Echoing Our Beginning

Before going independent in 1994, The Desmond actually began as a Hilton. We’ve enjoyed incredible success for 25 years, and are joining forces with Hilton yet again to continue our pursuit of being your go-to hotel in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Look for the official switchover to happen in late spring of this year.

Come see for yourself what’s new and how much more we have to offer! You can make a reservation for your next stay here or call us at 800-575-1776.

For 25 years, The Desmond Hotel has earned a reputation for superior hospitality and comfort. We boast 194 well-appointed nonsmoking guest rooms and suites with modern amenities and hotel-wide free Wi-Fi. Our luxurious property offers three onsite dining options, two bars, indoor and outdoor fitness and beautiful grounds. We have the perfect setting for you—no matter the occasion. The Desmond is ideal for corporate meetings and retreats, wedding receptions and any kind of celebration. Events of all sizes welcome!
