Fodor's Review

Elegantly restored, this full-service landmark hotel celebrates the town's most famous writer and is within walking distance from the town common, museums, and waterfront. Across the street is Nathaniel's statue and a fine gift shop named after his wife Sophia (Peabody) in the couple's former home. Rooms are outfitted with iPod docking stations and flat screens, and in 2011 the hotel completely remodeled all the guest baths and updated rooms with new beds and linens. A tavern is on-site.
