Baby Boomers: Wentworth Mansion

Named among the "Top 25 Best Hotels in the USA" by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, the Wentworth Mansion is located in the heart of the historic district. Italian crystal chandeliers, hand-carved marble fireplaces and Tiffany stained glass, accompanied by personalized service, sets the scene for this 21-room treasure.
