This modest courtyard hotel smack dab in bustling Little Italy offers an unbeatable value for travelers who are more interested in exploring than snoring. In keeping with the hotel's European vibe, rooms are fairly small, and it's true that some can catch a bit of noise, but they're comfortable—with high-thread count sheets and flat-screen televisions—and enlivened by mod touches such as white ostrich-leather headboards and hanging globe light fixtures. Downstairs, there's a lively Italian café and a pizza joint, plus there are tons of great restaurants and bars within walking distance, including Craft & Commerce, Extraordinary Desserts, and Monello. Guests can also hit the farmers market right in front of the hotel on Saturday mornings.
