Fodor's Review

You can't miss this place: it's grand, white, and incredibly large, set majestically atop a rise overlooking the ocean. The hotel was built in 1914 (after its predecessor caught fire in 1898), and much of the splendid glamour of the earlier era remains. Guest rooms in the main building are outfitted with antiques and hardwood floors, and bright white bedding nicely sets off the colors of the floral wallpaper; half have ocean views. Two-bedroom suites and spacious cottages suit families. Cottage-style and antique furnishings maintain the classic seaside ambience in all lodging quarters. The Porch restaurant serves New England fare, with seafood and steaks; families often opt for the more casual Marine Room.
