The Windsor Arms once held the only five-star status in town, but it's had its ups and downs. Today it’s known as a dignified destination with just 28 suites. The spacious rooms—ranging from 51 to 144 sq. m (550–1,550 sq. ft.)—appeal to the country-club set, who appreciate things like crown moldings, Persian rugs, mahogany furniture, and ornate decorative touches like a baby grand piano (each room is decorated with a musical instrument). The hotel is refined without being showy. Everything from the buttery Molton Brown moisturizer to the high-thread-count Frette linens is intended to pamper guests. A saltwater pool with a poolside fireplace, part of the excellent spa, is a bonus. The restaurant is equally high end, and the afternoon tea suitably elegant.
