Within walking distance of Davies Symphony Hall and the War Memorial Opera House, these small, homey rooms with dark wood furnishings cater to season-ticket holders for the opera, ballet, and symphony; they've also been the choice for stars of the music, dance, and opera worlds, from Luciano Pavarotti to Mikhail Baryshnikov. The genteel marble-floor lobby resembles the foyer of a finely appointed mansion, while nice touches in the guest quarters include queen-size pillow-top
beds with 250-thread-count sheets, flat-screen TVs, and cozy terry robes. The romantically lit Ovation restaurant, with its Old World charm, is an intimate place for performers and audience members to congregate before and after shows. Rates include Continental breakfast buffet, and complimentary cookies and apples are available at the front desk.
