One could "get lost in the wood-paneled halls adorned with art" at this Edwardian brick hotel. Rich rooms have chinoiserie cabinets and cozy window seats. A new wing holds 30 more-modern guest rooms and an Aman Spa. Tuck into southwestern French specialties at Hélène Darroze; Espelette is more casual, in a glass conservatory revealing Mount Street views. "You'll understand why the chief concierge has a fine reputation."
