On any given weekday, the lobby here is packed with freelancers perched on every couch and at every communal table in the sprawling, lo-fi industrial space. It makes sense that this would be one of the area’s main hubs of activity: There’s Wi-Fi on tap, a coffee and snack bar, cold-pressed juices out the door at the hotel’s own juice and mylk bar, and a small but well-selected menu of breakfast and lunch items from the hotel restaurant, Hoi Polloi. Meanwhile, upstairs, the rooms, designed by Barber & Osgerby’s Universal Design Studio, are decked out in vintage furniture with a slightly industrial edge. Slightly spare, they’re planned for travelers who plan to spend more time exploring the city than indoors. Photo: Andrew Meredith
