At the height of the pandemic, the city took over this hotel and turned it into a homeless shelter. When the owners got it back, they closed it down for a solid three months and renovated it from top to bottom. It still won’t win any design awards, and most of the rooms are cell-like in their dimensions, but what you have today is a white-glove clean lodging, with cheery Jetsons-esque wallpaper and decent mattresses. Rooms have full closets and a private bathroom for the price some places charge for digs with shared facilities (and no damn resort fees here!). Biggest selling point: you’re on a lovely tree-lined block, within walking distance of several museums and many restaurants, in a safe, residential neighborhood.
