The Davenport Hotel, built in 1913, is the perfect spot to visit during a cold north western winter before their tall fireplace with a glass of brandy or blueberry tea.
Spreading from the comfortable leather chairs and couches that surround the fireplaces at either end of the long ballroom are tables where you can dine beneath the art deco architecture. A must have appetizer is the Cougar Gold Cheese Dip - a rich baked dip perfect for a winter treat.
Another room to indulge your wintertime blues, or just to hang out and listen to some live music any time of year is the Peacock Lounge. After gaining some liquid courage head to the second floor when you can tour the hotel's empty historic ball rooms fit for a Victorian ball.
If history was never an interest then head over to the newest edition the Davenport Tower across the street where decor is much more modern with a safari theme.
