It keeps good company as The Vanderbilt and The Rossevelt are right down the road....though one can sleep overnight at The Belvedere..and that is what we did,this summer, one late June Tuesday night . We were the only guests there that evening and next day and had the whole place to ourslves. I felt like Gatsby after everyone went home..Dare I say the "Shining" word? Though I did feel like I was in this movie..It was Mysterious. Old, Creepy, Magical & Mystical (see claw tub bathroom) Cozy. Lovely,..Full Breakfast included..xo
