What looks from the outside like a generic stucco town house conceals an intelligently designed and carefully serviced oasis (charcoals, woods, gentle stripes) that aims to deliver low prices without sacrificing a sophisticated atmosphere. The founder calls the concept “affordable luxury.” That’s not just hooey. You get flatscreen TVs; free Internet; a free music library; air-conditioning; some oversized showers; safes; lots of outlets; plenty of storage space; and, most helpfully, mini-kitchens with fridges, microwaves, and a kettle, so you can prepare simple meals. The location is a little westerly for most tastes but that is offset by plenty of grocery options, and the genuinely interested staff is truly helpful. The owner has built and opened The Nadler Soho and The Nadler Victoria based on the same concept; their more central location comes with higher rates. Pay a week in advance and you’ll get 10% off.
