Awards

The Townsend Hotel is a gem of European elegance. A perfectly cut chandelier celebrates your arrival with glittering crystals of light. Cherry wood panels adorn the walls, while sprays of fresh flowers complete the traditional décor. Among the greatest accomplishments a hotel staff can achieve is the long-term loyalty from the guests they have hosted in the past. We are honored to have valued guests who return to The Townsend Hotel year after year.
