Fodor's Review

Rock 'n' roll palace meets urban thrift shop in this unique guesthouse, a scramble of five connected town houses crammed with art, kitsch, and everything in between—it's the most unusual sleep in town. Nothing here suggests a hotel: from a two-story log-cabin suite with fish tanks and pony-skin chairs to the John Lennon–theme room with a signed guitar case and hologrammed bathroom floor. Squander your evenings shooting pool, or pick up one of the ubiquitous guitars and write a song about the place. There's no menu—the kitchen invites guests to wander in and eat as they please, or submit a request in advance. Watch for secret doorways—the mansion was once a dorm for Hoover's G-Men. Long term stays are welcome, and your privacy is sacred.
