Fodor's Expert Review Grenadine House

Kingstown, St. Vincent, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Especially favored by business travelers, rooms in this historic mansion are also perfect for vacationers who want modern comforts in an elegant setting but don't require planned activities or beachfront resort features. This stylish boutique inn is wedged into a residential hillside neighborhood (five minutes by taxi from downtown Kingstown and the Botanic Gardens) on the site of the island's oldest guesthouse (1765) and the home of its first British administrator. Although far from any beach, the hotel does have a large pool, gym, spa, and broad verandas with sweeping views of the city and the harbor. Rooms are also large, with 1930s-style brown-wicker bureaus that contrast with the light-color walls—decorated only with oversize period travel posters. The European-style service is friendly, efficient, and low-key. Table d'hôte (prix-fixe) lunch and dinner are available in the Sapodilla Room, the air-conditioned restaurant on the ground level; breakfast is served on the terrace.
