Thoughtful touches abound at The Quin. Like the in-room espresso machines, which come with both porcelain cups and to-go paper cups, in case you need to drink your java on the move. And super-deluxe Duxian beds topped with an easily-removable featherbed layer for those who like their sleeps firmer (there’s also foam pillows in the closet for guests who prefer them to down). As for the rooms themselves, they have a pin-striped vibe—think chic corporate with lots of dignified grays, taupes and textures and angled lamps—and a bedside panel that controls lights, TV, curtains, you name it. Room service is provided from the topnotch on-site restaurant; and the gym has machines that were invented about 10-minutes-ago, and a wide selection of free weights, along with refrigerated towels and loaner headphones. A note for families: those rooms that end in 09 and 10 have a hallway door, allowing them to be shut off from the rest of the floor, in effect creating a family suite of two rooms.
