16 Royal Crescent, Bath, Somerset, England, UK

Bath’s Royal Crescent, for those not in the know, is something not unlike the 1774 equivalent of Trump Tower — a collection of some thirty houses joined together and spread out in a five-hundred-foot arc. This is one of the textbook specimens of Georgian architecture, one of this Roman spa town’s most famous landmarks, and its supernaturally perfect arc and immaculate lawns make for an imposing sight.
The Royal Crescent Hotel takes up houses 15 and 16 of the Crescent, and a (quite sensible) local ban on signage means it’s unmarked, though the presence of a doorman is enough of a giveaway. House number one of the Crescent may be given over to a museum decorated in authentic eighteenth-century style, but the hotel’s interiors are a bit more current — think contemporary-classic with a healthy smattering of antiques.
Aesthetics aside, the rooms are as comfortable as can be, with rich four-poster beds and marble baths; though the in-room baths of course pale in comparison to the hotel’s airy, light-filled spa. Of course there’s no law that says when in Bath, you must do as the Romans did — other leisure options include the Library, the Pavilion Conservatory, the gardens, the Dower House restaurant or the Montagu champagne and cocktail bar. And in case that’s not enough, there’s plenty to do farther afield, with Bath suffering no shortage of restaurants, pubs, and sights to see.
Please note: The Royal Crescent is currently undergoing renovations, which are scheduled to be completed April 15. As the hotel is comprised of several self-contained buildings, guests will continue to be welcomed with minimal disruption.
