Columns Hotel

Columns Hotel Review

Built in 1883 as a private home, the Columns has been the scene of TV ads, movies, and plenty of weddings. It features 20 en suite guest rooms, and the interior scenes of Louis Malle's Pretty Baby were filmed here. The Victorian Lounge (once the main dining room) now houses a popular bar, and the grand veranda is perfect for sipping cocktails on warm evenings. The elegant rooms of the first floor are open to the public and look exceptional during the December holidays adorned with wreaths and twinkling lights; note the stained-glass skylight topping the mahogany stairwell.
