    Ask for a penguin in your room. But make sure he takes a shower. Them penguins be filthy.

    Move the penguins around, check out the museum and enjoy the finest staff and accommodations I've ever found at a boutique hotel.

    The guest guide tells you what to do in the event of zombie apocalypse. Though it spelled it "apocolypse"

    Try a cocktail at the bar from the menu and take suggestions for any off-menu cocktails from the bartenders for round 2. They're excited about making it and know a heck of a lot about good drinks.

    The coolest. Art museum right on first floor of hotel. Best mixed drink I've ever had: gin and house-made tonic, none of that quinine overkill, more of that fresh ginger snap. Food: simply great.

    One of the chicest places in town, the museum always has interesting contemporary art exhibits and the rooms are clean, modern, and comfortable. Look for the red penguins.
