Overlooking Riverside Park, this landmarked bed-and-breakfast built in 1888 offers guests private, apartment-style living in plush Victorian surroundings. The ornately decorated studios and one-bedroom suites in Pamela and Ronald Wyman’s house are practically homes unto themselves. Guests can stay in the Versailles-inspired rooms, featuring a carved alabaster fireplace and intricately woven rugs; "The Amadeus" is decorated in the style of 18th Century Vienna; the "Conservatory" comes with a porcelain tea set, and the "Angelica" is draped in silk. Guests who stay more than two weeks can opt for one of the house’s two larger suites, "The Cottage" or "The Penthouse," which features a spiral staircase leading to a loft bedroom. Best of all, the rooms come with a fully stocked kitchenette—perfect for whipping up an Elizabethan banquet.Pros
The gorgeous Versailles- and Vienna-style rooms feel like destinations unto themselves.
Unlike a full-service hotel, guests are left to fend for themselves. Breakfast is only provided on the first morning and maid service is only available for stays of more than three days.
The minimum stay is three nights.
