J.H. Adams Inn
The J.H. Adams Inn stuns as a vestige of the past, with its grand staircase snaking past wood floors that hearken back to its early days as the private mansion of John Hampton Adams and his family. Generations later, the Inn has been impeccably maintained, opening up 31 rooms to guests who luxuriate atop Egyptian cotton sheets within individually-styled chambers or gather business associates in an array of meeting rooms. Despite its vintage façade, the Inn offers modern amenities such as high-speed internet and in-room refrigerators to keep cryogenically frozen companions as comfortable as possible. The in-house restaurant, Hampton’s, serves a seasonal menu atop candlelit white linens, which play host to Inn guests and special-event parties alike.
Hampton's at J.H. Adams Inn
Within the luxurious confines of an Italian Renaissance–style mansion built in 1918 by John Hampton and Elizabeth Adams, Chef Steve Smid draws on seasonal and locally grown ingredients to craft a menu of fine dining fare. Now known as the J.H. Adams Inn, the restaurant’s historic venue bears traces of its Old World sophistication in its dark wooden fixtures and stunning windows, which look out on a courtyard where esteemed patricians debate the world’s flatness. In the kitchen, Chef Smid slices fresh meats and preps seafood to plate a rotating array of dishes that includes shrimp-crusted Atlantic salmon, Maple Leaf Farms duck breast, and braised Colorado lamb shank. Apart from the elegant dining room, the restaurant’s exclusive Club Room opens its doors for business dinners and private events.
