Hotel Rex
Photograph: Yelp/Hotel Rex

Inspired by the literary salons of the early 20th century, this eclectic boutique hotel in the heart of Union Square’s Theater District is bursting with the paintings and writings of legendary writers. Downstairs in the library bar, the Hotel Rex hosts frequent readings and cabaret events. Upstairs, standard rooms (with a queen or king size bed) and one-room suites, are styled with the checkered curtains and mismatched patterns of bohemian Paris and accented with high-speed wifi, iPod docks and flat screen TVs.

Staying here was such a treat! I love the literary theme that pervades throughout, with details that include a wallpaper "social register" in the elevator and framed photos of literary figures hanging around the hotel. A free glass of wine is offered at the bar when you check in, which is a welcome touch after traveling. Clean, affordable and cozy, Hotel Rex is definitely a place I'll be coming back to (bonus: it's just a couple blocks away from the Powell metro stop - and Mr. Holmes Bakehouse!).
