Sober and chic, this tasteful hotel is in a great location for shopping and restaurants, and the year-round heated pool makes it good for families. Rooms have faux-leopard blankets and flowered throw pillows to liven up the classic style, and sliding louvered walls separate the bathrooms, which have their own flat-screen TV (many also have deep-soak tubs). Some rooms have big bay windows and fireplaces, but everyone gets the free turn-down service from 5–7, with tea,
coffee, chocolate, fruit, and snacks. Children rejoice that the outdoor pool is heated all year, as is the surrounding cement floor. The French fusion restaurant's steak and tuna tartares are outstanding.
