DANFORDS VOTED LONG ISLAND'S #2 HOTEL AND #3 MARINA
Danford Hotel & Marina has been voted by Long Island Press (www.longislandpress.com) readers as the region's #2 Best Hotel and #3 Best Marina in the regional paper's fifth reader poll, The Best of Long Island 2010. Tens of thousands of votes from Long Islanders were cast on-line for a spectrum of local businesses and national chains across 215 categories.
Voted #2 Best Hotel
Long Island Press says Danfords Hotel & Marina is "guaranteed to please."
Danfords Hotel & Marina, formerly Danfords on the Sound, has been a mainstay in Port Jefferson Village since 1986 when it was established as an inn, conference center, marina, restaurant, and catering facility. In 2008, the super-luxury 86-room boutique hotel, which overlooks the Long Island Sound with panoramic water views, completed a multi-million dollar enhancement for the first time in the resort's history solidifying its position as a preferred destination for travelers.
Voted #3 Best Marina
Long Island Press adds "There's a reason tourists flock to LI during warm weather – our summers can't be beat."
Located on Port Jefferson Harbor, Danfords' Marina makes summer traveling especially easy with proximity to New York City, Orient Point, Montauk, Mystic, Block Island, Newport, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island. Boaters can simply pack up and slip into the full-service marina for a day or for weeks at a time where they will be within walking distance of the hotel's signature WAVE Restaurant & Lounge, offering a mix of cultural and regional fare and specialty cocktails, dockside dining, ten-percent discount for dock and diners, and slip-side food and beverage service. Village shops, paddleboat cruises, art galleries, fishing, performing arts theatres, museums are just a few activities accessible by foot. The 75-slip marina accommodates boats up to 280-feet long and offers several conveniences such as: refueling facilities for gas and diesel; water, electrical and cable hook-ups; shower facilities; high-speed Internet access; and a full-time Dock-Master.
