Fodor's Review

A wonder of modern architecture, this French-owned gem is a prism-shaped structure that juts over the street and widens as it rises; design sensibility shines in guest rooms, too, with honey maple–wood furnishings, Barcelona chairs, and marble bathrooms. The sophisticated Café des Architectes—which has seasonal outdoor seating—is notable for its 30-minute executive lunch, while Le Bar is like a den, with comfortable seating and a fireplace.
