hidden gem
the place was quaint. the decor was nice. check-in was a breeze, but we got the keys and that's it: no direction re: bath towels, so we rifled thru the dressers to find them. not a big deal, but for future reference, that should be pointed out or in the guest book. i liked that we didn't run into the owners or other guests during our stay. guest(s) above us and next door came in rather late and were insanely obnoxious and loud 2 of 3 nights, so that was frustrating. coffee service was nice to have, but the space is big enough to offer a microwave to heat up leftovers or have a morning oatmeal or popcorn for a movie, etc. this is not a negative to the guesthouse, it's simply a suggestion. really convenient, close to the Y, close to the metro which we took daily. just steps from lots of good eats, little markets, lq stores, pharmacies, etc.

Quiet Luxury in Harlem
255 West Guesthouse is in a lovely brownstone lose to great restaurants and Hamilton Heights hot spots. Our room, the Calliope, had a bed that was both gorgeous & incredibly comfortable. The window treatments were beautiful and practical as they were well lined which allowed us to sleep in. The private bathroom has a fully tiled shower, plenty of hot water, and good hotel size toiletries. With Netflix in the room and the lovely historic details, 255 West definitely felt like a home away from home. Our host, a former professional decorator of course (!) was charming and kind.
