Whether you are celebrating an anniversary or are in town for business, this crowd-pleasing B&B provides a retreat from the hustle of Union Square while being located in the heart of it all. The small inn dates back to 1912 when it was an antiquarian bookstore with accommodations to boot. A friendly staff mans the small lobby, while guests retreat upstairs to reasonably sized rooms decked out in maroon and gold. Poster beds, oversized pillows, flat-screen TVs, tubs,
and Aveda bath products add additional comforts. In the mornings, guests congregate on their floor's lounge for an expanded Continental breakfast; in the afternoon the staff offers wine and small bites; and before bed, guests munch on chocolate chip cookies and chat about their day. At turndown, staffers deliver bottles of water and chocolate.
