"Steeped in historical grandeur," this landmark around the corner from shop-lined Mount Street combines Art Deco and Victorian styles for "design-magazine perfection." From the lobby with a Dale Chihuly chandelier, guests move on to rooms with antique fireplace mantles; in summer 2010, the property unveiled a series of Diane von Furstenbergdesigned quarters. Afternoon tea is "a must." The staff's "cordiality, comfort, and discretion are worth every penny."
