It’s pretty easy to find a cheap vacation in Delaware after Labor Day, but one spot often gets overlooked, because everyone assumes it’s pricey year-round. The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach is one of Delaware’s most elegant hotels, and in the off-season, it’s one place you can have a luxury vacation without breaking the bank.
The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel is a historic, elegant landmark that towers high above the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach.
This family owned hotel has been operating for more than 25 years, and in that time, their name has become synonymous with hospitality and class.
A stay at the Boardwalk Hotel is a luxury experience, but if you time your trip right, you'll enjoy Delaware's most elegant accommodations on a shoestring budget.
In the summertime, rooms at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel start at over $300, and can cost as much as $650 per night. However, book your stay after Labor Day, and you'll have access to their cheapest rates of the year.
Until 10/20/18, rooms start at just $189 a night. From 10/21-11/24, you can book a stay starting at $124 per night. If you book even later, from 11/25 until the end of the year, you may be able to find rooms for as cheap as $89 per night! Of course, weekends and holiday rates will be higher, but if you plan ahead, you can book a stay at Delaware's finest hotel for the cost of any other local hotel chain.
The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel offers much more than just rooms and views. You'll find one of Rehoboth's coziest coffee shops in here, brewing local grounds and serving up tasty pastries.
Plaza Point Coffee Shoppe opens at 7 a.m. daily, so stop by for a warm cup of coffee and a danish before starting your day, or heading out onto the Boardwalk for a stroll.
Victoria's Restaurant, right on the Boardwalk itself, serves up one of the only Afternoon Teas you'll find at the beach.
Treat yourself to an old-fashioned experience Monday through Saturday between 3 and 5 p.m.. You'll have to make reservations in advance. At $20 per person, it may seem pricey, but when you consider that everything for your tea is prepared fresh just for you, it seems like quite a deal.
Victoria's Sunday Brunch is one of the best spreads in town, and it's also an amazing value.
Sunday Brunch runs from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Enjoy the soft sounds of piano while you indulge in some tasty treats. The $5 Brunch Bites section includes oysters on the half shell, breakfast tacos, apple cinnamon waffles, pancakes and more.
Their $10 brunch entrees include their mediterranean frittata, eggs benedict, salmon croissant, cinnamon bread french toast, pulled pork sliders, and more.
If you really feel like splurging, their $15 a la carte entrees include a famous crab cake sandwich, chesapeake omelete, cream chipped duck, lobster sliders, a crab benedict, and more.
Bloody Marys, mimosas, and screwdrivers are just $3. They also offer upscale brunch drinks, like their Mermaid Oyster Bloody Mary, for just $5. Seriously, this elegant brunch spread is filling and delicious without lightening your wallet.
Beyond brunch, Breakfast is served 7:00 – 11:30 a.m. Monday – Saturday and until 11:00 a.m. on Sundays.
While dinner at Victoria's is certainly an upscale experience, their Prix Fixe menu is an affordable splurge.
Spend just $24.95 per person Prix Fixe Dinner is available from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and features several entrees to choose from to create a gourmet meal.
The hotel's heated soaking pool is the perfect place to unwind for the day.
From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., the spa pool is open to all guests. From 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., the jets are on, the poolside bar is open, and the spa is open only to adults.
The adults-only concierge level is perfect for couples traveling without kids, or anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
Up here, you'll find like-minded travelers looking for a peaceful vacation. Evening turndown service, a daily paper, coffee in the garden (weather permitted), and use of the private rooftop sundeck and hot tubs.
While there are certainly cheaper places to crash at the beach, there's no better, more affordable luxury getaway than Boardwalk Plaza in the off-season.
