Fodor's Review

Old-master paintings, including a Van Dyck, grace this 1863 hotel's sumptuous Empire-style lobby, while Gobelin tapestries hang in the ballroom; the rooms are spacious, with upscale linens on the beds. During the afternoon, a tea sommelier can guide you through the high-tea brews in the classic hotel bar, which has live piano music six nights a week. The hotel's Taku Restaurant ($$$–$$$$) specializes in pan-Asian cuisine.
