Hotel Rex is only a few steps from the throbbing heart of the city, Union Square. The interior design exhibits traditional elements: The beds and closets in the rooms, all made from dark wood, are imported from Europe. The center and hub of the building is the 1930s-style, seemingly British Library Bar. On Fridays, hotel guests mix and mingle with the locals to listen to jazz. The Rex, a boutique-sized Grand Hotel, is perfect for those who love European comfort and luxury.
