The timeless lobby displays a colorful mural by artist Thomas Hart Benton. Rooms are stocked with Neil George bath products. Dock your iPod in a stellar sound system by Dr. Dre. -- Insider Tip: While waiting for the 29th floor roof bar to open, slip into Chef Marc Murphy's destination, Kingside for charcuterie and libations courtesy of Gerber Group (try the refreshing Spicy Paloma with Casamigos Blanco tequila).
