Gryphon House Review

The staff in this value-packed four-story, 19th-century brownstone is helpful and friendly, and the suites are thematically decorated: one evokes rustic Italy; another is inspired by neo-Gothic art. Among the many amenities—including gas fireplaces, wet bars, DVD and CD players, and 42-inch flatscreen TVs—the enormous bathrooms with oversize tubs and separate showers are the most appealing. Even the staircase is extraordinary: a wallpaper mural, El Dorado, wraps along the walls. Trompe-l'oeil paintings and murals by local artist Michael Ernest Kirk decorate the common spaces and some rooms.
