Gayot
Literati, take note. Modeled after New York's famous Algonquin, this salon-style hotel from Joie de Vivre gets its inspiration from literary salons of the 1920s and '30s.
Time Out
Named after Kenneth Rexroth, MC for the fabled Six Gallery reading that provided a launchpad for the Beat Generation, the Rex is one of the city's most appealing small hotels.
Fodor's
At this stylish, literary-themed hotel... paintings and shelves of antiquarian books line the "library," a homey lobby lounge where book readings and roundtable discussions take place.
