A conservative exterior belies the hotel's chic appeal, but the swanky lobby offers a preview of what to expect from stylish rooms. Recorded jazz fills the entryway, and postmodern furniture (with Lone Star leanings), artwork and a video fireplace decorate the area. Adding to the upscale atmosphere is adjacent Ling & Javier's, which offers an unusual fusion of Chinese and Cuban cuisines. Illuminated pieces of artwork represent each floor--the 11th floor features a large photograph of a pair of dice showing five and six. Rooms all come with Internet access and web TV. Standard rooms feature hip furniture, like a small love seat resting against the window for a view of the Galleria area. When it's time to turn in, you'll be greeted by cozy down comforters and pillows. Suites and studios double the luxury with glass conference tables, skylights over wet bars and terraces that provide city vistas.
