Concierge.com's insider take:
Unabashedly sexy, trendy, high-tech, and, well, red, this hotel on Embassy Row has 137 rooms meant to stimulate, not calm you down. (Unless, that is, you request one of the designated Chill rooms, which have mood lighting, a PlayStation 3 or Wii, two 27-inch flat-screen TVs, and slightly more subdued colors than in the other spaces.) Other specialty categories include Chat rooms, with a state-of-the-art computer and unlimited Internet access, and Chow rooms, with a kitchenette, including microwave and dishes. The interiors are sharp, contemporary, and whimsical (starting with the black-and-red checkered rugs). And all guests are invited to a red-wine-and-beer session on weekday evenings, with Bloody Marys and cold pizza on weekend mornings. Just like home.
