This landmark 1929 art deco apartment tower was the on-and-off home of everyone from Howard Hughes to John Wayne to Truman Capote. After narrowly escaping demolition, it was revived in the late '80s as a hotel with kitschy Deco reproductions—until Jeff Klein of New York's City Club saved it again in 2006. Now, the hotel has brand-new modern interiors that quietly compliment the building’s great bones, and a low-key glamour that appeals to the discreetly rather than flamboyantly fashionable. Most of the 74 restful rooms in shades of cream and soft brown have floor-to-ceiling casement windows and fantastic views of the strip, while some suites have balconies hidden behind the building's gargoyles. A bit sceney in the early evening, the walnut-paneled Tower Bar (in what was once Bugsy Siegel’s apartment) is straight out of old Hollywood with private nooks, old-school service, and a jazz pianist. The terrace restaurant, overlooking the small but pretty pool, has wicker furniture, limestone floors, and lots of light—and Capote would definitely have approved of the bustling spa with its white marble hammam and plush, private treatment rooms.
