Contemporary Comfort in a Nineteenth Century Setting A review of Hotel Fauchere
A hotel with a grand past reopened this fall in this charming small town after extensive renovations restored its original design and updated its amenities to the levels expected by today's most discerning travelers. With only 16 rooms, the hotel gives each guest whatever level of personal service he requires, including helpful advice about how best to soak up the town's magic either in a day or a week's visit. The dining room carries on the tradition of founder Louis Fauchere who opened the hotel in 1862 after making Delmonico's of New York the most famous restaurant in America. Dinner reservations for locals are already hard to come by, but the hotel guarantees the dining room will always accommodate its overnight guests. The basement level Bar Louis, however, is already the premier watering hole for locals. The Fauchere offers conference and event facilities in a separate, similarly restored building next door, now connected by a landscaped garden. A wonderfully restful treat in the very center of Milford.
