Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden
Go back to a time when 61st Street was the country and the Mount Vernon Hotel was a sanctuary for those who wanted to get away from it all. Built in 1799, it first served as a carriage house and was then transformed into a hotel in 1826. Now the structure stands in the middle of the hubbub of Manhattan as one of the seventh oldest structures in the city. Restored and refurbished, the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden offers eight totally furnished rooms reflecting 19th century taste and style and a wonderful garden. There are three different group tours offered and various special programs. Go back to another place and time.
