“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
You might check in to La Résidence, situated on a 30-acre estate, expecting old-world glamour. You'll find that in spades, to be sure, but jazzed up in a distinctly modern way: unexpected splashes of orange, chartreuse, or lemon, or perhaps a boldly patterned rug. Many rooms boast Asian paintings and antiques—a testament to owner Liz Biden’s unique design flair. The result is an opulent French chateau with an Oriental twist.
