Come for the incredible food and wine selection, but stay for the unique interior design. The Epicurean Hotel, less than a year old, is one of Marriot’s newest Autograph Collection members, and partner to the legendary Bern’s Streak House. The hotel strives to combine culinary expertise, a hip culture, and professional appeal. And let me tell you – the place does not disappoint. The furniture and textiles of the place are rustic and inviting, yet completely inventive. A huge 6-foot tall fork and knife adorn one of the first walls you see upon entering the hotel and this quirky addition really characterizes the design scheme. Everything you see screams eat/drink/enjoy. From old fashion wooden wine boxes as wall paneling, to the custom made Epicurean beach cruiser bikes that litter the place, to the garden wall hanging in the lobby where the kitchen actually grows some of it’s produce – this place is the ultimate experience for the senses. It’s just down the street from the OE so next time you’re here, head around the corner and check out the new hotel, it’s sure to surprise and impress.
