This is the hip place to stay on the Central Corridor, favored by sophisticated travelers, traveling rock bands, and the like. Guest rooms are done in a sort of budget contemporary that will appeal to the young and artistic. The center courtyard boasts a giant hot tub and a gorgeous pool with gold- and platinum-coated tiles, dozens of fountains that spray water into the pool, and underwater speakers. Definitely a see-and-be-seen pool scene. The restaurant and cocktail bar are designed to appeal to young night-clubbers and fashionistas, and there’s a rooftop lounge for sunset cocktails. It’s been constantly upgraded over the past decade and now even has a spa.
