Rooms in this boutique sanctuary are minimalist chic in grays and pale gold tones, with comfy beds and fab bathrooms (request one with a tub if you so desire)—a nice contrast to all the Victoriana around, though the building’s beautiful old bones still honor its history—thus rooms are small. Black-and-white photos of local musicians give a nod to the locale. All that cool, including craft cocktail bar Loa, make this popular with business types and film crews. But it’s more about appearances than amenities, so when rates are at their higher end it may not be merited (conversely, it runs some good online specials). At press time, the new restaurant’s opening (and restoration of room service) were pending.
