Two blocks west of Union Square, this Queen Anne–style abode began its life in 1904 as the Sultan Turkish Baths; today rooms are tight but well decorated with Victorian reproductions, ceiling fans, old-fashioned floral curtains with lace sheers, and iron bedsteads draped with soft bedding. The lobby—dominated by a huge Elliott grandfather clock and the original cage-style elevator—is inhabited by a kind staff. Guest rooms include small flat-screen TVs and leather chaises and have large closets. A welcoming breakfast, including local Graffeo coffee and Bakers of Paris pastries, is displayed on each floor for guests to take back to rooms. Complimentary wine is served each evening in the lobby. Fino, the hotel restaurant, has been praised for its splendid service and delicious Italian fare.
