In a city where each hotel room looks like the next (trust me, I’ve visited almost all of them), it’s refreshing to come to a hotel with its own aesthetics, in a price range that’s not outrageous. Guest rooms are unusually stylish, with handsome works of art on the walls, mod clocks, and textured wallpapers. They come in all shapes and sizes, so ask to switch if you’re not happy with the one you get. Included in the room price is a large breakfast, and while Wi-Fi incurs an extra fee, let’s just say that if you ask some of the staff members in an unobtrusive way, they’ll share the password with you. (You didn’t hear that from me, though).
