vibrant mosaic tiles, warm woods and rattan, potted palms, and North
African-themed art gracing the public spaces and guest rooms, the
ambience is just right - the only thing missing is Bogart and Bergman.
The rooms arent big, but theyre nicely outfitted with comfortable platform beds, ceiling fans, two-line phones, bathrobes, and double-paned windows for quiet.
The bathrooms are done in gorgeous
Andalusian tile, and even the smallest is spacious enough for an oversize shower (request a tub when booking if you want one).
Suites have pullout sofas that convert to single beds, but theyre really too small to accommodate families.
Everything is high quality, and beautiful
touches like Murano glass sconces and framed Moroccan carpets in the
halls add an extra flair.
Ricks Cafe is one of the citys finest hotel guest lounges, boasting a serve-yourself cappuccino machine, a fireplace, a big-screen TV, and PCs with T-1 connectivity. A tiled second-floor courtyard is also ideal for summer lounging, and the rooftop deck is a perfect vantage for watching the New Years ball drop.
The staff is attentive, and the ambitious manager is constantly at work improving the property.
sterling Theater District location as the icing on the cake, who could
ask for anything more? Book well ahead, as an increasing number of happy
repeat guests and corporate clients fill this place up fast.
