Staying the Day (and Not the Night) at the Del

Enjoy the pleasures of the season, even if you haven't booked a room.



    TWO "DAYTIME' PACKAGES: Indeed, the hotel is offering "day" packages during the holiday season to guests not planning on a stay. It's rather wonderfully discombobulating, a hotel that is like "come for a day, not a night!," so pause to wrap your mind around it. Mind wrapped? Good. The Del Family Experience includes ice skating passes for two adults and two kids, s'mores on the beach, a hefty dining credit, and more. The Del Romance Experience also has ice skating, for two, as well as massages and more. Weekend day rates are higher, natch. Tempted? Want to do the Del at the holidays without packing a suitcase? You can.

    BY THE BY... you do know the Del's ice rink is ocean-adjacent? Please. Other ice rinks everywhere must dream of being that ice rink, at least for a day.
