The Camden Harbour Inn may look like another balconied Victorian bed-and-breakfast from the outside, but don't be fooled: Dutch co-owners Raymond Brunyanszki and Oscar Verest are taking Maine's hotel scene in a new direction. Don't believe us? Check out these first-look photos of the two new suites they unveiled this summer.
Ben Franklin once said that “visits should be short, like a winter’s
day.” A few blocks from his birthplace, Boston’s new Ames hotel is doing its best to prove him wrong.
Occupying the Romanesque former headquarters of the Ames farm-tool company, the 113-room downtown property (which officially opened last night) is the very chic result of a collaboration between David Rockwell and the Morgans Hotel Group—the New York-based founding
fathers, so to speak, of the boutique hotel.
Not a whole lot goes on in Little Compton, Rhode Island. That’s the way people there like it, and it’s the reason the Stone House (which opens today) has got them talking.
The Stone House is a lovely, historic 13-room hotel—not exactly the sort of place you’d expect to raise eyebrows in a posh coastal New England town. But Little Compton (pop. 3,500) isn’t Newport. The town commons basically consists of a diner and a general store, and thrifty flash-adverse locals like to keep a low profile. (Despite the fact that some of New England’s wealthiest families have houses here, the country club not long ago took Haagen Daz off its menu because its members complained it was too expensive.)
