The curved wood reception desk looks yacht-like, but the lobby’s overall feel—made by details like soothing turquoise plaster walls, a big, round communal table off the bar area, and a woman enjoying a coffee with her dog by her side—is as welcoming as a friend’s living room. Staff in shirts with Breton scarves tied at the neck bring on a subtle French flair. My overall feeling was one of relief, as the hotel is plenty stylish without any South Beach snobbery.
