Discover the Art of Afternoon Tea
Henry James famously wrote “[… ]there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to […] afternoon tea,” and the timelessness of historic hotels serve as the perfect backdrop to this beloved tradition. Afternoons at The Drake (1920, pictured above) in Chicago are an elegant affair with tea served daily around an 18-century marble fountain in the hotel’s famed Palm Court. Afternoon tea at Chez Philippe in The Peabody Memphis (1869) is a delight for guests of all ages. Arrive early, or stay late, to watch the march of the famous Peabody Ducks before enjoying an English-style, three-course afternoon tea which includes an assortment of tea sandwiches, sweets, and scones from the hotel’s pastry shop. Explore these culinary destinations and more.
A Storybook Retreat
Get away for a romantic weekend or an extended escape by staying in a storybook hotel and creating lasting memories with your loved one. The charming Queen Ann-style Hotel Brexton (1881) is a perfect location for the romantics at heart. Nestled in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood, this 29-room hotel was once the childhood home of Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, whose husband Prince Edward, the Duke of Windsor famously abdicated the English throne to marry his betrothed.
