More country than town, the two 1834 brownstones near Gramercy Park at East 17th Street that house this 12-room inn are all 19th-century charm. Each room, along with Lady Mendl's Tea Salon downstairs, is assembled so perfectly with period antiques that you expect Edith Wharton or Henry James to be your fellow guests—instead, you'll often see publishers from Europe. Wrought-iron bedframes, Oriental carpets, curved divans with silk pillows, carved wood paneling, and nonworking fireplaces are the suitably genteel items of design. Junior suites have a separate sitting area—continental breakfast can be taken there or downstairs in Lady Mendl's, where there's also a Wharton-worthy afternoon tea.
