    Where is Chatham Bars Inn Resort and Spa located?

    Settled on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Chatham Bars Inn Resort and Spa is located in Chatham, a quaint seafaring town on the elbow of Cape Cod. Situated a stone’s throw from a private stretch of beach, the Inn is a five-minute walk to shops, galleries and restaurants in Chatham, and a short drive to the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Chatham Lighthouse and a premiere 18-hole golf course. Travelers flying into Boston or Providence airports can skip the 90-minute drive by hopping a private charter to Chatham Airport, just 10 minutes away from the hotel, or the larger Barnstable Municipal Airport, located 20 miles from the Inn. The luxury property also offers a fleet of Range Rovers to shuttle guests to and from the airports.

    What is the dress code at STARS?

    When you’re getting ready for a meal at STARS, you should know ahead of time that the recommended attire is resort casual. The dress code at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant has become less strict in recent years, but diners tend to dress to impress, especially in the evening. Bathing suits and flip-flops are frowned upon, but men often wear jeans and a blazer and women tend to come dressed in sundresses and linen pants in the summertime. High heels and suits may seem incongruous on Cape Cod, but unless the evening calls for outdoor activities, they will not be out of place. The hotel concierge is helpful in suggesting appropriate attire, and if you have any questions you can call the property directly.
