The 171 guestrooms and penthouse suites, said to be the largest of the cities historical hotels, have been updated with luxury linens, flatscreen televisions, and iHome docking stations. There is Wi-Fi available, but at $10 a day, though it used to be free during the Joie de Vivre days.
A facelift was given to the public areas as well, replacing the drab palette with bold, eye-popping colors. The restaurant supposedly looks more sophisticated with a menu to reflect the decor, and lobby-level bar Mortimer has been lit with LED lights to attract a more youthful crowd. Perhaps the better to see the new twists on classic cocktails like the Blood Orange Bourbon Sour, made with fresh lime, sugar, egg whites and blood orange bitters.
Reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp seem to be the usual 50/50 split on Hotel Adagio's new look and service, so we'll be keeping an eye out until we eyeball it ourselves.
In the meantime, if you want to give it shot, rates start at $289 a night.
