Hotel at a Glance: Hotel Fauchère
Opened in 1852 by chef Louis Fauchère of New York's famous Delmonico's Restaurant, the Hotel Fauchère has been wining and dining guests in Milford for quite some time. In the Italianate-style building, you'll enjoy priority reservations and seating in the hotel's two restaurants as well as elegant guest-room touches, such as Carrara-marble bathrooms with heated floors and Kiehl's bath amenities.
- Award winner: TripAdvisor awarded the hotel its Certificate of Excellence in 2013.
- Farm-to-table cuisine: The Delmonico Room harvests ingredients from a 70-acre farm located a mile from the hotel to craft breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday-brunch dishes.
- Classic cocktails: There's a seemingly endless drink list at the stylish Bar Louis brasserie, where a Christopher Makos photograph of Andy Warhol and John Lennon keeps watch over the bar.
- In-room amenities: Restored guest rooms feature flat-screen TVs, Keihl's products, Frette linens, views of the garden or downtown, and free WiFi.
Pennsylvania’s Pocono Region: Close Proximity to New York City and Quaint, Historical Towns
Located in the four-county Pocono region, Milford, PA is situated at the north gate to the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The area has been a popular vacation destination ever since Pennsylvania Quakers opened a hotel here on the Delaware River in 1829. Today, the Poconos draw nearly 24 million annual visitors, thanks to year-round recreational opportunities and spectacular natural scenery.
A handful of quaint, little towns full of antique shops and galleries nestle in the region. You'll find boutique wine galleries and historical mansions tucked away on country roads, including the late 19th-century Asa Packer Mansion, which is open for tours, in the borough of Jim Thorpe.
