Here’s a place I’d like to spend a weekend at. Maybe the Edgar Allan Poe room?
Urban Geographer: The Sylvia Beach Hotel
"the "bed and breakfast for book lovers" is a four-story building built in 1910, originally named The Cliff House,"
- The hotel’s suites, named after authors ranging from Emily Dickinson to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Alice Walker, were designed by 20 of Cable’s friends, who selected their favorite writers and gathered decorations for the rooms as well as reading materials relevant to each author’s life and work
- Restaurant, Tables Of Content, where diners are served family-style at a large table and play Two Truths and a Lie over dinner
- Hot wine is served at ten each night in the large attic library and reading room
- Each room houses a journal, in which guests write about their visit, what brought them to the hotel, or whatever their journey brings to mind
A Room At The Beach
"Named in honor of the proprietor of Shakespeare and Company, a famous Paris bookstore in the 1920s"
Weekend away time? Hmmm…
