Encore Review

Innkeepers Reinhold Mahler and David Miller who are an architect and creative set designer, respectively, have pooled their creative energies into this South End lodging gem, proving that they know a thing or two about ambience. The stylish converted 19th-century town house boasts sun-filled rooms named for famous gay men in the arts (Sondheim, Albee, Bernstein) that are spacious and spotless, and bedecked with modern Italian furnishings, brushed-steel and chrome touches, and brick accent walls. The Albee room has a private deck; all rooms have ultramodern baths with glossy tiles and steel sinks.
