...a Bed & Breakfast in a Historic Virgin Islands Town House.
Enjoy breakfast while surveying the daily arrival of the cruise ships, or sip a cocktail from the honor bar as the sunset casts a rosy glow on the old town of Charlotte Amalie.
The Crystal Palace Bed and Breakfast is a guest house located in Dronningens Quarter in the heart of St. Thomas' Historic district. She is surrounded by a dozen other colonial mansions -hearty survivors of the Golden Age of St. Thomas, when the merchant barons of the islands built their elaborate homes on Synagogue Hill.
Look up from Crystal Gade and you'll see this fine old double-breasted colonial mansion. The Crystal Palace, the Lockhart family home, was the first home built on St. Thomas to be fitted with glass sash windows. Hence, the name of the house, and the street she so elegantly dominates.
The great room of The Crystal Palace Bed and Breakfast is a dramatic frame for the spectacular view from the enclosed gallery. Eclectic mahogany spans the ages, from please-don't-sit antiques to 1960s & 70s pieces and everything in between.

|The Crystal Palace B & B is a treasure trove of traditional West Indian architectural details: tray ceilings, wrought iron gates, hardwood floors, chandeliers and Moroccan tiles. Selected paintings from the Lockhart collection of period and contemporary St. Thomas island art complete the decor.|
A massive interior staircase leads down to four large guest rooms.
Furnishings are simple, elegant, clean and comfortable.
Two guest rooms have twin beds, one is made into a King bed, a third has a full bed and a single daybed, and all share a bath.
A fourth bedroom has an Imperial Queen Four Poster bed and an enormous ensuite bath.
There is a fifth bedroom with a Queen Four Poster bed on the top floor with private bath.
There is a communal area in the hall between the guest rooms with a small fridge, ice machine,
and microwave for preparing light snacks.
The Crystal Palace Bed and Breakfast is not a restoration... it's the real thing!
The Upper Level Entrance is in the Garden Area
Stonework from the early 1800s, in some areas,
