Fodor's Review

A wonder of modern architecture, this French-owned gem is a prism-shape structure that juts over the street and widens as it rises; design sensibility also shines in the guest rooms, thanks to honey maple–wood furnishings, Barcelona chairs, and marble bathrooms. The sophisticated Café des Architectes—which has seasonal outdoor seating—is notable for its efficient executive lunch service, while denlike Le Bar has comfortable seating and a fireplace.
