Some hotel bars have a sexy, ships passing-in-the-night appeal, but this one has the ambience of an airport departure lounge minus the anticipation. Tuxedoed barmen are friendly and prompt, even though the black marble bar is mysteriously devoid of bottles. The house cocktail, the $12 Sexy Lexy (peach liqueur and vodka), tasted like a Creme Life Saver. There’s a cubbyhole for romance, but without curtains or other embellishments, the nook has all the charm of a candlelit broom closet.
