New York Loft Hotel - © Wendy Connett/TO
Sister to the Villa Paradiso, an atmospheric budget apartment hotel, the Loft has a similar setup but a more polished feel. The long low-rise building is flanked by a narrow courtyard filled with tropical foliage; the outdoor corridors overlook the greenery. Spacious and airy, the cool white studios are gussied up with wrought-iron beds, beige bedspreads, animal-print chaises longues and wooden or tiled floors. Sheer drapes separate beds from the living area. All rooms come equipped with kitchens.
