A film-crew favorite for its loft-conversion style; proximity to the Howlin’ Wolf and other Warehouse area attractions; spacious rooms; and terrific modern art. Nothing’s to die for, but everything is clean-lined and well done—and the staff is particularly efficient. The large rooftop pool adds a lot, with spectacular views and a jumping social scene. Streetside rooms have large, original windows; the interior overlooks the ‘70s-era atrium and courtyard or neighboring buildings.
