Fodor's Review

You'll feel like you're checking into the Pantheon when you enter this neoclassical hotel set in a century-old bank building. More than 60,000 square feet of Georgian white marble is sparsely decorated with palms, classical statues, comfortable contemporary seating arrangements, and well-chosen antiques. Ionic columns ascending the height of nine stories dwarf the lobby lounge, and natural light cascades through the oculus of the 140-foot dome ceiling. A drink in the lobby is a treat, even if you're not staying here. Guest rooms are surprisingly small and could use some better soundproofing, but have modern touches like flat-screen televisions, glass-enclosed showers, and lighted makeup mirrors. Let them know if it's your birthday or another special occasion, and they should greet you with champagne. The hotel also offers an iPod walking tour. 10 Arts by Eric Ripert, the hotel restaurant, uses organic local ingredients for its take on contemporary American cuisine.The hotel offers toys for children.
