The Townsend Hotel’s design style evokes the décor of the English aristocracy. Guest rooms and suites feature floral-print bedspreads and curtains, as well as mustard-yellow-and-white-striped wallpaper. Sitting rooms in the hotel suites are furnished with traditional pieces, as well as small area rugs (placed on top of carpeted floors). A crystal chandelier twinkles in the hotel’s lobby, where cherry-wood wall paneling, black-and-white marble floors and freshly cut flowers in vases on coffee tables and side tables set a homey tone. If you enjoy a meal at the luxury hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, The Rugby Grille (and you should), you’ll love the eatery’s warm, cherry-wood-accented ambience and cozy fireplace — not to mention the delicious steaks.
