With popular magazines on the desks and well-worn books on the shelves, this well-situated hot spot aims for a residential feel. Check out the complimentary reception every night from 5:30 to 7 for free drinks, Italian beer, and antipasti, among other treats. And unlike many other hotels' Continental breakfasts, this one is served on each floor rather than in the lobby. The clientele is eclectic and laid-back; the reception brings everyone together. A water wall in the
lobby is cobalt blue, reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast.
