Acquired in summer 2013 by Grace Hotels, The Mayflower Grace (formerly The Mayflower Inn and Spa) is one of the latest additions to this boutique hotel group’s collection. Situated less than two hours from New York, in the heart of Connecticut, Washington, this destination spa and country house hotel brings an outstanding level of luxury to Connecticut. A Relais & Chateaux hotel, the Mayflower is also a Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond award-winning hotel.
Set amongst 58 acres of manicured gardens, there are only 30 rooms and suites spread throughout the four buildings; the Mayflower House, Speedwell Cottage, Standish Cottage and Allerton Cottage. Furnished beautifully, these feature feather topped mattresses, antique oriental rugs, marble bathrooms, gas fireplaces and a high level of amenities. Combined with the high level of Grace service, the Mayflower accommodations are truly impressive.
The Mayflower Grace is home to the second Muse by Jonathan Cartwright restaurant, the first being at the Vanderbilt Grace, Rhode Island. With international food and wine served daily at dinner, this restaurant is outstanding. For something a bit more casual, dine at the Tap Room Bar, open daily from midday. A spa hotel in itself, The Mayflower Grace offers spa programs from Sunday to Friday as well as a la carte treatments the whole week.
