Dream Weekends: Being Cool in the Sun

Slice of (Blue) Heaven

“Add ice to your ice bucket, and the container turns from lime green to cotton-candy pink. Switch off the bathroom light, and—whoa!—the sink glows blue. You’ve just witnessed a few of Hotel Blue’s “smile elements,” as owner Scott de Kuyper calls them. Lewes’s newest boutique hotel has all the de rigueur luxuries: Frette robes, gas fireplaces, and linens with thread counts as high as Ivy League SAT scores. But it’s Blue’s fun factor that makes this place memorable. There’s a rooftop pool, and each of the 16 guest rooms boasts a balcony overlooking Lewes Canal; two share patio koi ponds (these first-floor rooms are off the parking lot). Did we mention the flat-screen TVs that double as mirrors? Smile elements, indeed.”
