Fodor's Review

The only modern boutique hotel downtown, it attracts a cosmopolitan set that wants to be in the center of the River District's art, dining, and shopping scene—and just minutes from other attractions. The eight-story tower was built in 2009 but cleverly designed to blend in with the historic setting. Pretty bas-relief Corinthian columns travel up the façade, and first-floor common areas that spill out onto a historic arcade are kept simple. But inside the hotel proper,

white walls, graphic palm tree prints, and espresso woods dominate. These contemporary elements carry over to rooms and mix with soothing blues and retro photos of Old Florida. Art is bold and comes entirely from local artists. The two-queen rooms appeal to families, but for about $10 more, book the spacious king-sofabed combo with a huge double-vanity bathroom (couples and singles also take note: it runs $30 above the standard king, but is almost the same size as a suite).
