Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Intimate and stylish with an art deco vibe

The Bar at Le Metro Restaurant
The Bar at Le Metro Restaurant

The Levin was founded by experienced hotelier David Levin. This 12-room hotel is an intimate, family-run affair that offers warm personalized service. For example, there is no big front desk, but instead a beautiful reception room. There are some great special features at the hotel, including a Ralph Lauren honesty bar and a minibar stocked with a variety of champagne in every room. Art deco colors and shapes dominate the decor. In Le Metro Brasserie and beyond, the scene is laid-back and elegant.
