Hotel's Favorite. We had to get back to NY for a production and based on our last trip we knew there was only one place to stay! Kayla as always made us feel welcomed! Sava gave us a tour of the new additions and changes made, loved that! We love our time at the Evelyn and have sent many of friends their way. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! I am so glad you enjoyed yet another stay with us and we love having you apart of the Evelyn Family! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Great place to stay. Great hotel with lovely staff.

Very accommodating. Reason for the 4 stars is due to the view from our room it was a wall. But other than the view I could not fault this hotel in anyway. Very central and comfortable. Evelyn Arthur St. John Waugh was born in a suburb of London in , the son of a busy man-of-letters.
Waugh's origins were gentlemanly but in no way aristocratic, a point he seems to have been inordinately touchy about even as a boy. He was sent to Lancing, one of England's less fashionable public schools; and from there he won a scholarship to one of Oxford's decidedly less fashionable colleges. At Oxford, however, his wit, good looks, and resolute preference for the elite carried him into the company to which he aspired.
There is a striking portrait of him at this time in Harold Acton's Memoirs of an Aesthete : "I still see him as a prancing faun, thinly disguised by conventional apparel. His wide apart eyes, always ready to be startled under raised eyebrows, the curved sensual lips, the hyacinthine locks of hair, I had seen in marble and bronze at Naples Later, he worked for sixteen days on Lord Beaverbrook's Daily Express.
His ambition was to be a painter, but a stint at art school left him dissatisfied with his talent. At this time, he has said, he was a pagan and "wanted to be a man of the world" -- a well-rounded English gentleman in the eighteenth-century tradition. He joined in the whirl of Michael Arlen's Mayfair. He "gadded among savages and people of fashion and politicians and crazy generals A few months earlier, his marriage to the Honorable Evelyn Gardner had ended in divorce. In , he married again. For nine years, Waugh had traveled often and widely, by preference to wild places.
The best parts of the four travel books written during this period were later reprinted in When the Going Was Good, and they are still lively reading. One is periodically reminded, however, that Waugh's touch is surer and more sparkling when he is using these same materials in his comic novels. At the outbreak of the war, Waugh joined the Royal Marines, and later, as a Commando, took part in a succession of desperate actions in which he became famous for his phenomenal courage.
Years earlier, when Waugh had taken up foxhunting, his recklessness had awed even veterans. Waugh is now settled at Piers Court in a secluded part of Gloucestershire, from which he occasionally makes sorties to his London clubs. I collect old books in an inexpensive, desultory way. I have numerous children [three girls and two boys] whom I see once a day for ten, I hope, awe-inspiring minutes. He seeks to live in an oasis. He has refused to learn to drive a car. He writes with a pen which has to be continually dipped in the inkwell.
And he prefers to communicate even with his neighbors by written message rather than resort to the telephone. A literary friend of Waugh's once delivered a summation which neatly reflects the tenor of the anecdotes about him. As nearly as I recall, it went: " Oh, I adore Evelyn.

He's so frightfully witty and so fearfully rude. Terribly conceited, of course -- and, poor sweet, rather ridiculous. But such a good writer!

The artist who repudiates the realities of his time must of necessity either work in the ironic key, as Waugh did in his earlier novels which transmute repudiation into blandly destructive laughter; or, if dissatisfied with a negative criticism, he must offer alternatives to the status quo which can be taken seriously. But when Waugh abandons the detached stance, when he seriously articulates his opinions and attitudes, the results are often distressing, and sometimes disastrous.
His fierce nostalgia for medievalism represents as he himself recognizes a yearning for an irretrievably lost cause; and as social criticism, it is therefore merely frivolous or petulant. Moreover in the Catholic content of his novels to date, there has been little accent on religious experience such and a really shocking absence of that human compassion which is so much a part of the Catholic spirit. What ounce of compassion Waugh can muster is reserved for the few who meet with his approval.
In fact, the Catholicism of Waugh's fiction -- it is not, of course, his faith which is under discussion, but his expression of it -- is inextricably bound up with worship of the ancient.
