The Abingdon Guest House

21 Eighth Ave.
New York , NY , United States http://www.abingdonguesthouse.com/
(212) 243-5384

Intimate, elegant, and authentically Villagey, the Abingdon occupies two adjacent, refurbished 18th-century Federal town houses in the heart of the West Village. The nine themed guest rooms are sophisticated but still bohemian; several have exposed brick walls, decorative tin ceilings, and ornamental fireplaces; all are decorated with an eclectic mix of antique repros (four-poster beds, armoires, writing desks), Oriental rugs and textiles, and modern fixtures (track lighting, glass shower stalls).

Tip: Bring a bathrobe. Although all rooms have private bathrooms, some aren't en suite—you'll need to enter yours from the hall.

Room to Book: The Martinique and Essex rooms are the quietest, with windows overlooking a small garden. For charm, though, go for the Windsor Room, with its wingback chairs, parquet floors, and (nonworking but still romantic-looking) brick fireplace.
