Concierge.com's insider take:
A shrine to the Summer of Love, the Red Victorian is the place to go if you're sick of chain hotels and want some local color—psychedelic color, in this case. Each room is decorated according to a hippie theme: The exuberant Flower Child Room has a rainbow and sun painted on the ceiling; the Summer of Love Room has a lava lamp, tie-dyed bed canopy, and '60s posters. The Peace Café offers delicious vegetarian food, and customers are encouraged to mingle at family-style breakfasts. The clientele is international and down-to-earth, and the amiable staff radiates peace, love, and the scent of patchouli. Note: Some rooms share a bath; ask when you book.
