This hotel on the historic plaza is "very pleasant and without pretension." "Tasteful decor" in public areas means Tibetan rugs and teak furniture; rooms in pale greens and yellows have bathrooms with six-foot soaking tubs. The wine hour at the Fireplace Lounge "is just wonderful," and the service "seems invisible but attentive." Grab an espresso or homemade ice cream at Café Newsstand.
