Fodor's Review

Pop art by Peter Max and Andy Warhol sets a mod 1960s tone at this splashy boutique hotel. The mood continues in the red-and-black guest rooms, whose amenities include iPod docks, complimentary Wi-Fi, and bathrobes. The hotel ballroom, with its twinkly starlight ceiling, is worth a peek. Breakfast burritos and omelets with avocado and bacon make the on-site First Avenue Bar & Grill a popular breakfast stop; the restaurant also serves lunch, dinner, and happy hour cocktails.

The San Diego Trolley stops right outside at 1st and Broadway.
