The Commons Hotel

This schoolhouse rocks

It's like all the best parts of college, without the final exams. The Commons Hotel combines loft-like, industrial chic décor with academically-themed perks like hot cider in the library-lounge and braniac games of Sudoko over cocktails. Roast s'mores in the fire pit out front, or head to the bar for fashionable cocktails under a video art display—or the big game and a beer.
