I stayed at the Hotel Rex on Sutter Street for a full week, and its comforts made it feel almost like home. The room was smart and well designed with colorful artwork and hand-painted lamp shades, the large "living room" behind the lobby was cozy with abundant comfortable furniture, walls of books and attractive lighting, the wine hour each afternoon and coffee offering in the mornings were pleasant, and the hotel is so well located, one can step out the door and find just about everything within a half a block! The manager, Bradley, is warm and welcoming, as are the accommodating and friendly, helpful staff, every one of them from front desk personnel to staff in the dining room (excellent breakfasts!), the women on the cleaning staff, and the bartenders, AND the sweet dog. They bend over backwards to make guests feel at home. Bradley is creating upcoming events at The Rex that will attract young and older people alike, will be low cost, and bring continued cheery entertainment to the neighborhood! I loved it!
