Sugar Hill Harlem Inn
Time Out says
Sugar Hill Harlem Inn represents a glorious slice of history, and an ode to some of the finest local musical artists that ever lived—but with a very modern twist. First, the historical stuff: The inn is a Victorian townhouse, dating back to 1906. In 2001, the owners did a complete renovation of the electrics and plumbing, taking great care to preserve the historical details. The result is eight gorgeous rooms with private bathrooms (some with private kitchens), each named for a famous artist: Satchmo’s Room (Louis Armstrong); Lena’s Room (Lena Horne); Miles’ Room (Miles Davis); Josephine’s Room (Josephine Baker); Billie’s Room (Billie Holiday); Dizzy’s Room (Dizzy Gillespie); Marian’s Room (Marian Anderson); and Nina’s Room (Nina Simone). Each unique room has been beautifully decorated by Carol Donawa, a graduate of The New York School of Interior Design. And the modern twist? Sugar Hill is as green as a historic inn could get: it uses solar power; all the food its serves is organic and all the tea and coffee is fair trade; it recycles all food waste as compost; it uses only non-toxic cleaning products. The Inn is located within a few minutes’ walk of five subway lines.
