Fodor's Review

You'll be hard-pressed to find a more charming inn or hosts more delightful than innkeeper Rick Verkler and his staff. Whether you are sipping morning tea in the parlor or unwinding from the day in the living room with a glass of sherry, everything is just so at this relaxing yet elegant urban retreat. The Duomo suite has a custom-made bed and spectacular bathroom complete with claw-foot tub, elegant rain shower, and whimsical mural inspired by the frescoes in Florence;

the Jennifer Green Room overlooks the converted mansion's outdoor pool and deck.
