The Ann Starrett Mansion is a beauty, inside and out. The public rooms and the guestrooms are exquisitely furnished with antiques. I stayed in Ann's Drawing Room, which was remarkably spacious, with a comfy bed and views of the mountains and water.
The location, too, is top-notch: a short, pleasant walk from all the top sights and restaurants. The neighborhood is great for strolling - the views, the gorgeous old houses, and the quiet ambience. Don't expect every modern amenity that you'd find in the usual upscale hotel. Instead, you get charm, elegance and a real sense of a bygone era. Oh, and free parking on the streets right by the inn.
