Hotel Rex

  • image (15)

Named for Kenneth Rexroth, emcee of the fabled Six Gallery reading series that launched the Beat Generation, the Hotel Rex draws design inspiration from literary salons. Bookshelves and paintings of famous writers line the walls of the lobby bar, which frequently hosts readings and cabarets, and pages from 1950s editions of the San Francisco Social Register paper the elevator walls. The 94 rooms are long on character, styled in moody browns and purples, complemented by dark wood furniture and lampshades stenciled with Impressionistic figures. Extras include good linens, quality bath amenities, iPod docks and mini fridges. Beds are a mix of kings and queens (if you care, voice your preference). Some rooms are dark, in part because of window air-conditioners, so request a high floor for more light—or plan to sleep in.
