Fodor's Review

The blue-and-tan Googie-style facade of this stylish inn suggests its 1963 urban-motel origins, yet the spacious rooms themselves are quite modern, decorated in black and taupe, some with fold-out sofas, and 18 offer convenient kitchenettes. Adjoining rooms can be connected to create a kid-friendly suite. Accommodations in the rear have cityscape views and tend to be quieter. For a fee, day passes are available to the extensive exercise facilities at the Jewish Community

Center, directly across the street. Diverse shops and restaurants are one block away on Sacramento Street. The hotel also serves up complimentary coffee, tea, afternoon cookies, and lemonade. The newly branded Swank Cocktail Lounge lives up to its name, with 1960s-era furnishings, mixologists slinging funky and classic cocktails, baristas whipping up Blue Bottle coffee, and James Bond on the telly outmaneuvering all his foes.
