Fodor's Review

Originally built by patron of the arts Alice Phelan in 1913 as the Keystone, this property was purchased in 1981 by composer Charles W. Mosser and refreshed in 2012; the result is a compatible pairing of contemporary decor and original Victorian architectural elements. Recent upgrades include double-pane windows, new bedding, fresh sofas, flat-screen TVs, and spruced-up color schemes. A musical motif extends throughout: Studio Paradiso, which offers state-of-the-art recording

equipment and an expert technical staff, is next door, and handsomely framed lithographs of recording equipment hang on the walls of the rooms. About three-quarters of the rooms have tiled private baths with deep tubs, and the rest offer clean, convenient shared facilities on each floor. Annabelle's Bar & Bistro serves contemporary California-style cuisine for lunch and dinner. Ask for special rates at this convenient, stylish, family-owned hotel.
