Laurel Inn, a Joie de Vivre hotel 3.0

Pacific Heights, San Francisco, California
The Laurel claims to have fashioned its rooms "in the style of a modern San Francisco studio apartment," and it largely succeeded. The color scheme -- black and tan with splashes of cobalt blue -- gives the rooms a modern look, but the vibe is softened by touches like down comforters, wooden window blinds, and plush curtains.
