Built from two carefully restored private homes, this Palermo Soho hot spot's crisply decorated rooms have high ceilings, hardwood floors, and enormous beds topped with luxe linens. Decorated in colorful ceramics, the bathrooms have funky freestanding sinks; some also have hydro-massage tubs that are great for after a day of shopping. Ambient music plays in a large living area, where you can work on your laptop or lounge on a sofa. The upstairs terrace is a great place for morning breakfast, which can be made to order. The hotel is conveniently located just blocks from the zoo and several parks.
