Highs & Lows

  • I loved the design. Each room has handpicked antique items, plus work from British artists on the wall.

  • The common spaces are beautiful. You feel like you’re hanging out at a really successful friend’s townhouse, surrounded by beautiful art and art books.

  • From the ladies at the front desk to the late night bartender, everyone exudes the best of British charm.

  • They gave me an awesome tote bag (or did I steal it, can’t remember?) that I use everyday.

  • The artwork of one of my favorites, Harland Miller, on the walls.

  • There was construction going on across the street so it can get a bit loud.
