Fodor's Review

This 1927 hotel has had a number of identities—including a 1970s stint as the Playboy Hotel and Towers under owner Hugh Hefner; these days the guest rooms sport a gold, beige, plum, and espresso color palette. The luxury here extends to the service: guests can put their shoes outside the door at night and they'll be shined by morning, free of charge. Your downtime is well spent in the Lobby Bar, which offers seasonally inspired cocktails and live jazz piano most nights,

or at Nix, a farm-to-table restaurant that celebrates seasonal ingredients.
