All rooms in this pet-friendly hotel have kitchenettes with microwaves and sinks (some suites have full-size fridges), so it’s a hit with families as well as business travelers. The decor, in restful shades of beige and cream, is unfussy with the emphasis on comfort: Choose from a menu of 12 pillows that includes buckwheat-filled, Swedish memory foam and antisnoring. You can even consult the sleep concierge, who will arrange for milk and cookies or a white-noise machine to help you nod off. Amenities include a spa and hair salon, a good-size gym and a chic, David Rockwell–designed bistro, the National Bar & Dining Rooms, from Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. Rooms: 209.
