La Maison in Midtown
Luxury, not quaintness, defines the vibe at this newly constructed B&B.
Down-home hospitality meets big city luxury in this new-build “urban” B&B. Each room in this four-floor property (with an elevator) has a private spa bath with a Jacuzzi tub, couple’s rain shower or walk-in shower, and a mix of contemporary and classic furnishings amid hardwood accents. Rooms also come with a desk and chairs, 32-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player and wireless Internet access. Though a B&B, this inn has a conference room that seats sixteen. Along with a continental or hearty southern breakfast each morning, afternoons bring high tea in the parlor. In all, this is a warm oasis just southwest of downtown, where --- as is billed --- you can "escape to the city."
