Old world charm, modern amenities

Rooms at the Soniat house are individually decorated and furnished with handpicked antiques, from grand chandeliers to exquisite rugs. Frette® bathrobes and Egyptian cotton linens accompany complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, flat-screen TVs, and iPod® docking stations.
