Hotel St Lauren...This hotel is just a quick walk down the hill to the main street along the harbor. The "Stay Here" point for me is that if you book a room on the 6th floor you can step right outside to a large deck with tables and lounge chairs that has this "BEAUTIFUL" Panoramic view of most everything! It's a straight look out onto the harbor. You can see the old Casino, the Yacht club, the boats, then from the side you can view the mountainous terrain and beautiful estates. It is right in the heart of everything, and the Pink Victorian boutique style rooms are comfortable. The hotel being more of an 'Old House" style lends to the rooms being more like bedrooms than having the feeling of a hotel. I'm not sure if all the rooms are the same; mine was a bit small but had good lighting, and was very comfortable and quiet. There was plenty of hot water and I did enjoy the stay. Best tip though is to get a room on the 6th floor and ask for one of the rooms close to the door to the open deck patio. That is very romantic! Also a good place if your stay is more than a day or two and you enjoy hanging there with friends or family or just want to sun and read a good book.
Reccommend this for girls weekend, solitude for ones'self, or a couple. Large family will find the room too small, but then I dont have a comparison right now to other hotels on the island to know if there is a more suitable hotel for larger rooms. If planning a family get away, please get 2 rooms so you will have the best accomodations.
