An ever-reliable choice in the theater district, this boutique hotel upped its understated-opulence game with a complete makeover, from its rooms to its restaurant. Streamlined and visually pleasing accommodations feature new everything, French doors, and large bathrooms with walk-in marble showers. Downstairs, the hotel’s bar and lounge, is a great place to start your night with a craft cocktail in front of the fireplace and its restaurant, features inventive Californian cuisine and an open kitchen. Tip: Book directly with the hotel, instead of a third party, to get the best rates and free Wi-Fi.
