The redbrick facade of this hotel some Fodors.com users describe as a "hidden treasure" barely hints at the Tuscan country villa style that lies within—Italianate rooms feature delightful bedding, kingly studded headboards, and wine-colored textiles. Other comforting touches include pillow options, blackout curtains upon request, and phone chargers on the in-room telephones. For those wanting a sound night's sleep, courtyard view rooms are quieter, but they lack views.
Complimentary beverages are laid out each morning near the fireplace in the spruced-up lobby, where a convivial wine hour is held nightly. There's free morning limousine service to the Financial District, though guests must find their own way back. Pescatore, the Italian seafood restaurant off the lobby, provides room service for breakfast.
