Fodor's Review

If cramped quarters don't bother you, this is one of the best deals in town. The rooms, starting at a meager 100 square feet, borrow space-saving ideas from mass transit, with sink consoles like those in an airplane restroom and built-in shelves under the beds, making the close quarters livable. Some rooms have standard queen beds and private baths; others have twins or spotless stainless-steel bunks with pullout flat-screen TVs. All come with amenities like iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi. The location is convenient, and common areas are cheerful and modern, with an outdoor bar-café and a stylish roof deck, but don't expect luxe linens or toiletries. Book well in advance, as stylish thrifty folk of all ages keep this hotel hopping.
