The Kitano Review
As you might guess from the name, the Kitano imports much of its sensibility from Japan, with touches that include a bilingual concierge and a high-concept Japanese restaurant—and it also makes for a notably service-oriented stay. One thing that's not classically Japanese, though, are the lovely oversize guest rooms, which are decked out in beige and gold. Head downstairs through the eerily quiet lobby to get to the Hakubai restaurant, or just to rub Fernando Botero's rotund sculpture of a dog for good luck—it's the hotel's mascot. The property also attracts music enthusiasts with Jazz at Kitano, a restaurant by day and jazz club by night.
