Cheshire Cat Inn Hotel Review: On a tree-lined residential street, these twin Queen Anne Victorians are shaded by tall palm trees and enclosed by a white picket fence. With prominent bay windows and balconies, they come off looking elegant rather than too cutesy. Inside the inn, accommodations come in a wide range: plush rooms with hardwood floors and private bathrooms; suites located in the coach house with mini-kitchen facilities, overstuffed couches and solid oak furniture; and private cottages with fireplaces, full kitchens, private decks with Jacuzzi tubs and everything else you'd need for a romantic getaway. The décor is standard Victorian, with floral wallpapers, antique brass beds and pastel hues. Many of the rooms have TVs with VCRs, and some have refrigerators and king-sized beds. An extended continental breakfast with items such as freshly baked scones and frittatas is presided over by truly charming hosts, as are the complimentary evening wine and hors d'oeuvres. Wireless Internet access and spa packages are available.
