From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The Keefer is much cooler than you are. The four-suite hotel is a boon to shabby Chinatown, and a good indication that the area is becoming hip again. Intended as a high-end apartment building (until the housing meltdown), these super-luxe pads are available for the night, the week, or indefinitely. High-maintenance guests should head elsewhere: There's no turndown service, 24-hour room service, or other typical hotel amenities. But for scenesters with deep pockets, this is the place to hang your hat. Each 2,400-square-foot dwelling has two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a modern kitchen, a living room (complete with a punching bag), and a TV so large it might be classified as a mini movie screen. It's tempting to want to throw a blowout party here, especially if you book the penthouse, whose roof deck has a sexy lap pool with a transparent bottom looking into the suite. The decor manages to be chic and well balanced despite the air of playful excess: Retro paintings in lollipop hues and oversized prints of old boxing photos (all by Canadian artist/writer Douglas Coupland) are juxtaposed against unfinished blond-wood floors and matte-gray walls. By contrast, the bedrooms, with their white-and-silver aesthetic, seem almost dull. No matter, you're here for the party. —2010 Hot List

Which room to book: The penthouse, with its aforementioned roof deck and pool.
