The guest rooms at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Egerton House Hotel are each decorated in various styles, from flamboyant renaissance to English country rose. Ours had a traditional country décor, emphasizing warm neutral tones, floral detailing and craftsman-style furnishings. A pattern of red flowers and green leaves on a beige background was used for the carpeting, thick tasseled curtains, decorative bed cover and plush throw pillows on the bed. The comfortable armchairs and ottoman by the window were upholstered in quilted patchwork in the same color palette, while the wall coverings were a thatched beige fabric trimmed in green and beige braiding. Paintings of various flora decorate the walls, with burnished lamps on either side of the bed and antique-finish dressers for the mini-bar and nightstand. While not on the large side or entirely well soundproofed, rooms comfortably accommodate two guests and provide a unique and cozy retreat from the busy streets outside.
