Mercure Shakespeare Hotel Review

Built in the 1400s, this Elizabethan town house in the heart of town is a vision right out of The Merry Wives of Windsor, with its nine gables and long, stunning, black-and-white half-timber facade. Its restaurant, bar, and lounge have blackened beams and a pleasantly aged look, and the intelligently modernized interiors provide a touch of luxury. Upstairs, rooms are named after Shakespeare's characters and the actors who've portrayed them. Hewn timbers carved with rose-and-thistle patterns decorate some of the rooms, which are furnished in greens, burgundies, and golds. Off-season deals are worth asking about.
