Fodor's Review

Luxury and service without pretense makes this hip spot a solid choice. All 149 rooms were renovated in 2014, and a new wing with 96 additional rooms will be completed by December of 2015. Contemporary prep schemes enhance the urban luxe lodgings, and king- or queen-size beds are piled with down pillows and Italian linens. All rooms have marble baths, large windows, separate work areas, and flat-screen TVs. The wildly accommodating staff is an added bonus. Eastern Standard and the Hawthorne serve up some of the best old-school cocktails in the city. The Island Creek Oyster Bar, an upscale seafood restaurant that doesn't hide its fish shack roots, is already winning high praise from diners and the national press alike.
