Fodor's Review

Once a notorious flophouse, this 19th-century building is now an ultra-hip hotel peppered with contemporary art and attracting a chic, creative crowd. Hanging near the lobby's 66-year-old terrazzo staircase is a Rorschach ink-blot mural that spans the lounge and dining room. Vintage leather couches, modern ottomans, art curios, and digital-art projections grace the lobby. Hardwood floors and transparent shower stalls decorate guest rooms, which are on the small side (150

to 250 square feet). DJs rock in the lounge, the underground bar, and on the rooftop patio nightly, and there are regular shows by local artists that often spill out onto the sidewalk. Yoga classes are held on the rooftop, and there's a super-trendy lounge that serves food grown in the hotel's garden. Hit the General Store next door for off-beat souvenirs.
