East Hampton's Maidstone Hotel features bright splashes of color, a myriad of fabrics and textiles, and a breezy, open layout on the ground floor. The chic, 19-room boutique hotel is one of the most charming hotels on the East End.

Each of the Maidstone's rooms is unique in layout and design, but they all share colorful wallpaper (the one in no. 6 has a dramatic red-flower print in the bathroom); lovingly restored antiques, like the mahogany sleigh-bed in No. 19; and Malin + Goetz bath products, flatscreen televisions, DVD players and Playstation 3S. No. 19 right under the roof is romantic, with small windows and a sitting room; No. 11 has a cornflower-blue-and-white color scheme and a four-post bed; No. 6 has a restored Grandfather clock in the bedroom and a clawfoot bathtub. Many of the vibrant fabrics throughout, featuring a huge variety of colorful prints, are mid-century Josef Frank. There are three free-standing cottages in the back garden which are ideal for small families.

The hotel’s restaurant was taken over by Chef David Standridge (who helms the West Village’s healthful Café Clover) in 2017. Guests can enjoy sitting inside the main dining room by the fireplace or outside on the patio and in the garden under hanging lights. The summer-inspired menu includes delicious options like peaches, pesto and vegetable pasta and grilled fish. For those with a sweet tooth, make sure to order the blackberry pie.

Whimsical on-site touches include dog walkers (the hotel is pet-friendly), iPods on loan, and personalized lunch boxes for guests who are planning beach jaunts. Guests can also enjoy complimentary transportation to the beach and towels and chairs. The shops and restaurants of East Hampton are within walking distance of the hotel and guests can use the firetruck-red bicycles to explore the area further.

Who Should Stay

The Maidstone accepts children of all ages, but the serene ambience feels like a better match for couples or friends traveling together.
