This old luxury pile, dating from the 19th century and situated two blocks from the waterfront, has been given a thoroughly decadent makeover, with expensive carpets, crystal chandeliers and high-thread-count sheets on the beds. Yet the prices are not much higher than thoroughly inferior options. If you're looking for a modest splurge, this is the place.
