The 70 rooms at Market Pavilion Hotel have a traditional 18th-century colonial look and feel, even though the hotel only opened in 2002. Mahogany two-poster beds with matching armoires and desks, white crown molding, oil paintings and floral-patterned armchairs decorate the rooms. Bathrooms have black granite countertops with a gold-framed mirror hanging above them and separate tubs and showers in white Italian marble. All of the bathrooms come with luxurious Hermès toiletries.
For the best rooms in the boutique Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, choose accommodations on the fourth-floor concierge level. They come individually decorated — walls are covered in everything from rose paint to toile wallpaper — and some have their own Jacuzzi tubs. Of course, the top honors go to the Presidential Suite. Its full-sized living room offers a view of the harbor, rich red brocade sofas underneath a crystal chandelier, a dining area that seats six and, fittingly, portraits of U.S. presidents lining the walls in thick gold frames. Another draw of the suite (which can be configured to have one, two or three bedrooms) is its bathroom, which comes with its own hot tub and an indulgent forest-green marble shower with nine showerheads.
