Critic Reviews



Built in 1927, this European-style boutique hotel has a lobby that calls to mind an English manor house and elegant accommodations that mix the classic and contemporary.



What comes as a pleasant surprise, in contrast to the old-world sensibilities and antique-styled rooms, is its embrace of technology and its certification as a Green Seal hotel.
