255West is not so much a traditional hotel as a 130-year-old brownstone in the heart of Harlem offering four highly individual, immaculate (and irresistible) rooms that combine beautifully ornate furniture, exposed brick and bright, fresh decor. Each room is named after one of the owners’ four Chihuahuas—Guillaume, Lily, Calliope and Gino—and features a private bathroom, flat screen TV, free WiFi and complimentary tea and coffee. Because this is a guest house, the only other things you’ll get are free toiletries and a place to store your luggage. But you should at least get to take some great memories home with you. 255West is located within a couple of blocks of five subway lines.
