Once the Canadian embassy, this turn-of-the-20th-century mansion is now an intimate luxury hotel, an oasis of calm a short walk from the city center. Common areas in the main building display some striking yet tasteful neoclassical architecture and period furnishings. Rooms are more neutral, with earth and beige tones and some contemporary splashes of art, and some of those in the main building retain the original mouldings and fixtures. The top-notch restaurant is in
what used to be the mansion's library. Views vary; request a room with a terrace overlooking the gardens.
