A vibrant 30-foot hand-painted mural in the lobby is just the first thing that puts this 24-room boutique hotel onto the best hotel list. The in-the-middle-of-it-all location in Midtown Village, along with the historic Georgian-Revival building, ensures it remains there. Carefully chosen details, rooms emphasizing individual decor and a knowledgeable staff well-versed in the city mean that a stay here feels different from one in a bland corporate chain. Low prices combined with a clean and striking interior equal what may be the best hotel value in the city.
Expert Tip: If you need privacy from kids or in-laws or if you'd simply like to spend your stay in a comfortable, home-like environment, book the bi-level Queen Loft room equipped with semi-private sleeping areas, a dining room table and a fireplace.
