Amazon.de

Comprehensive bed-and-breakfast guides are hard to come by, and that's what makes Fodor's America's Best Bed & Breakfasts so outstanding. With detailed descriptions of more than 1,600 inns and B & Bs in 50 states, and candid, informative write-ups on each, this is one of the most extensive guides to B & B's we've seen.

Headed for Spicer, Minnesota? Then you'll want to know about Spicer Castle, a Tudor-style country mansion on the shores of Green Lake. With pedestal sinks and claw-foot tubs, a full breakfast and afternoon tea, a Spicer respite costs $75 to $140. If chance (or careful planning) finds you in Delaware, there's the William Penn Guest House, set by the marker that claims the spot where William Penn first "stepped on American soil" in 1682. The guesthouse itself, a restored Colonial structure with lots of pine antiques, charges a mere $60 to $85, Continental breakfast included. And in San Francisco, the Chateau Tivoli is as ornate a fin-de-siècle chateau as you're likely to find in an American setting, with a remarkable history; carved oak paneling; a chaotic, museum-like interior; and a large Continental breakfast of homemade pastries and breads, cereals, juices, and fresh fruit, for $99 to $225 a night. The secret to all these unusual lodgings, of course, is knowing about them, and that's what Fodor's America's Best Bed & Breakfasts excels at. --Stephanie Gold

This a Bed & Breakfast guide which assumes that the Bed & Breakfast itself is a signficant part of the vacation. It tends to focus on accomodations in quaint and stately houses in quaint and stately locations. For this reason, you will find listings for historic Galena, Illinois (a small town, nearer to Iowa than any major center in Illinois) but none in the Chicago area (even the more historic older suburbs). Although there was nothing for Chicago, there were listings for B & B's in New Orleans and San Francisco.
This is also not a budget guide. The examples mostly seem to be top-of-the-line. There isn't any attempt to identify best buys, for example. These are accomodations for major vacations, not improptu stopovers.
That said, the descriptions of the various B & Bs are very thorough and attractive- they make you truly want to go there. They include historical information about the buildings and information about what the owners bring to their businesses that makes them special. The editors take pains to note that the entries are not paid advertisements but included only because of the writers' judgement.
One detail I often found to be missing was information that would help me orient myself quickly in a major city. There wasn't a whole lot of "close to downtown." I've been to New Orleans, so I know what "near City Park" means. By contrast, I could sort of tell that some of the San Francisco listings were in urban neighborhoods but it was often hard to tell how convenient to the center of things one would be. A map, of course might quickly resolve this problem but it's even more helpful to have it right there in the text- especially since the book has no maps of its own.
