Opened in 2010, the St-Martin has nightclubby feel to it, with its neon pink and cobalt blue accent lighting, chic in-house restaurant, and outdoor lap pool looking out over the city. Some rooms have unique glass corner windows, while others have modern-design standalone bathtubs or electric fireplaces. Given its young age, all the furniture and public areas are especially fresh and updated. Highrises on this block are tall, so rooms don’t have much of a view, but that won’t matter for most guests. The restaurant (L’Aromate), serves inventive bistro-style cuisine with many French classics getting modern twists—try the Wagyu beef tartare or the unique version of the sugar pie, served as bite-sized nuggets coated in nut flour and accompanied by caramel ice cream. The restaurant spills out to a sidewalk terrace for al fresco dining, and has a mezzanine in the lobby, too.
