The Prince has not one but multiple watering holes, the better to serve its über-hip, night-owl clientele. There's the pub-style Prince of Wales Bar; the Prince Band Room, with live acts most nights; and the boho-luxe Mink, where you can order decadent cocktails, assorted vodkas, and a diverse array of platter food. There's also the fantastic bakery-café Il Fornaio; a well-stocked wine shop; a Mod-Oz restaurant, Circa, with its own bar—oh, and 40 rooms. Enter the tall lobby, awash in Schiaparelli-pink light, climb the glossy black staircase to black-painted hallways, and prepare for a surprise: Behind the chocolate-brown doors lie sunny, comfortable rooms. The decor pairs brown mohair-and-angora-blend blankets with crisp white sheets, abstract art and Arne Jacobsen chairs, and wooden towel ladders in spare, slate bathrooms. Spring for a superior room or premier suite, which have boxy balconies overlooking the foot traffic on Acland Street. Otherwise, you can people-watch from the deck adjoining the hotel's pool and day spa.
