The Theater District's 414 Hotel is something of an anomaly. It's a quirky and inexpensive boutique hotel carved out of two historical townhouses separated by a charming, internal courtyard in the middle of the area's flashing lights, high-rises and pricey hotels. The 22 stylish rooms are clean, comfortable and full-sized, while the large, well-maintained bathrooms continue to be the hotel's strong suit. All rooms come with the standard amenities, but if there's anything missing, the 24-hour concierge staff is friendly and approachable. Twenty-four hour business services are also available upon request. The free continental breakfast, served in a pleasant dining area with a real working fireplace, is, unlike most free hotel breakfasts, actually worth checking out. But don't just fill up on the croissants and OJ—the nearby "Restaurant Row" is sure to offer something for every palate.Pros
Big hotel production values at a gently-priced, quiet bed-and-breakfast type inn; a private, inner courtyard.
Rooms facing the front of the building can get a bit noisy in the mornings.
