The intimate lobby/sitting room with dark paneled walls, carved moldings, fireplace, satin-brocade chairs, mirrored ceiling, and gleaming chandeliers sets the mood of this quiet oasis surrounded by the city's best entertainment, shopping, and dining. This is a smallish, older hotel that prides itself on personal attention from a caring, multilingual staff. Gracious, old-fashioned rooms are good-sized, most with two closets and all with data ports, two dual-line telephones, desks, and comfortable armchairs for reading and relaxing. Bathrooms have make-up mirrors and hair dryers. Free Continental breakfast includes fresh rolls, muffins, pastries, coffee, and tea.
