Turn-of-the-century Victorian style—but with modern amenities—reigns at this beautifully restored turreted mansion. During its glory days the inn hosted celebrities and former prime ministers. Those joining their ranks now will note that every immaculately kept room has attractive period touches as well as up-to-date must-haves such as air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. There are also two apartments with fully equipped kitchens. Outside, the inn has nearly 5 acres of delightful grounds that extend to the East River.
