This is the best international-style large hotel in the city, located in the historic Fort George section with panoramic views of the sea from rooms in the main six-story tower. Opened in 1953, and since totally redone, it was one of the country's first modern hotels. Rooms in the villa wing across the street, formerly a Holiday Inn, overlook the river and one of the hotel's two pools. Dining options include the expensive St. George's Dining Room, the poolside Stonegrill
Restaurant, where food is grilled on heated volcanic stones, or the expanded coffee shop, Le Petit Café. The Baymen's Tavern is one of the city's upscale watering holes.
