Ever wonder what red sounds like? Or what yellow tastes like? Guests at the Time Hotel are encouraged to find out by engaging all their senses in the hotel’s unique, colorful décor. Designed by Adam D. Tihany, The Time offers monochromatically themed rooms in primary colors: red, blue or yellow, each complete with matching bedding. If the décor fails to excite, there’s always the flat screen TV, Bose sound system, fax machine and high-speed Internet access in every room. Plus, in the soaring, second floor lobby, Inc. Lounge dishes out martinis and light snacks. With room rates as low as $179 per night, a little extra green in the wallet never hurts, either.Pros
Well-suited to business travelers, the central hotel provides fax machines and copiers in each room.
Some of the rooms are on the small side.
