Housed in a historic, Romanesque Revival style building, The Gladstone Hotel embodies the Art and Design District's marriage of old-school allure and new-school funk. Each of the thirty-seven rooms is designed by a different artist, but you may have to wait a minute for a hotel employee to operate the 1907 hand-crank elevator before getting to your room. The scene at the hotel is hip and young, and revelers can be heard at the hotel's Melody Bar late into the night, so if you're looking for peace and quiet, you may want to consider hotels outside this hopping neighborhood, like the equally modern (and less expensive!) Hotel Victoria, located ten minutes away. Or opt for the earplugs the hotel provides!
