Before Wheatleigh became a luxury hotel, it was a 19th-century home. That explains why no two rooms in the hotel are exactly alike. Each of the 19 rooms and suites at Wheatleigh offer a different layout. However, the guest rooms and suites feature similar décor — a sophisticated ambiance with soothing brown, blue and yellow tones. King- or queen-sized beds and small sitting areas are common in most accommodations, though some suites and larger rooms have separate living spaces and sofas for lounging. All rooms are equipped with BeoVision 7 Entertainment Systems, Bang & Olufsen electronics and cashmere- and wool-lined throws for your comfort.
You’ll find a tub-and-shower combination in every room and suite, though some have a separate claw-foot tub for a luxurious soak. Bathrooms are stocked with all the necessary amenities, including a choose-your-own shampoo and conditioner. The Berkshires hotel provides four different bath products (though the brands might change), including Bulgari, Clarins and Neutrogena for sensitive skin.
The guest rooms all have different views, so be sure to specify if you want a park, courtyard or mountain vista when making your reservation. Above all, be sure to look up when you enter the room. The original architecture from the home has been preserved and restored, so you’ll enjoy high ceilings with etched detail and stunning surfaces that immediately transport you to another time and place.
