Features
Great design, Traditional style

With just five rooms and nine villas, this is one of the country's smallest boutique hotels. Rooms, named for impressionist painters and outfitted like the rest of the property with impressive art, are lavishly furnished—most house a large separate dining or sitting room. Marble bathrooms, rich silk drapes, Peacock Alley linens, and thoughtful touches like writing tables and cocktail nooks have attracted mega-watt celebrities and dignitaries to the Montrose hotel, formerly the mansion of Exxon's founder. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the property are the 20-foot ornate oak panels that line the grand ballroom. Originally carved in 1715, they were decor in a chateau outside of Paris said to be the location of the last European royal ball before World War I.
