Few hotels take themselves less seriously than The Curtis, and that's a good thing. For starters, you might find the front desk staff hula-hooping or playing Guitar Hero in the lobby—it's part of the job description. Heading upstairs, every floor has a theme, from the Sci-Fi Floor to Dun Dun Dunnn!, the aptly named 13th floor with a creepy portrait of Jack Nicholson from The Shining greeting guests as they get off of the elevator. There are classic boardgames you can borrow from the lobby, and wake-up calls from Yoda and Elvis. But it's not all fun and games: The freshly renovated guest rooms are sleek and contemporary, featuring custom artwork, and “hyper-themed” suites include nods to Jimmy Buffett and the “Talladega Nights” movie. The Theatre District location is convenient to the convention center and the performing arts complex.
