The reigning royalty of Bermuda lodging, the Princess boasts some of the most comfortable rooms on the island and caters to its mainly business guests like no one else. It's the only full-service resort in Hamilton and is located right on the Harbour, just steps away from the liveliness of Front Street. Classy, contemporary rooms and suites have elegant hardwood furnishings and marble bathrooms. Fairmont Gold, the chain's exclusive boutique hotel within the larger property,
is memorable for its regal lounge, set in the former ballroom. Take posh afternoon tea here complete with silver pots and fine china. Although at the Princess, as in all Hamilton hotels, there's no beach, you can walk off the dock onto a ferry (followed by a shuttle ride) to Fairmont's south shore beach. Because it caters to business, prices are lower on weekends.
