The redbrick facade of this hotel some Fodors.com users describe as a "hidden treasure" barely hints at the Tuscan country villa that lies within. Each small, Italianate room has white-pine furniture, a completely mirrored wall, and a refurbished bathroom. Rooms are decked out in whimsical stripes, polka dots, and vibrant colors, mixing these playful touches with more classic ones such as stately gray headboards. 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.
