In 2001, Ian Schrager took over this 1915 Theater District landmark (it’s also close to the not-so-scenic Tenderloin), and the entire city agonized over what he might do to the beloved Redwood Room. Today, the bar looks better than ever, and the 363-room hotel (now part of the Morgans group) has been fully Schragerized: a dimly lit lobby littered with art furniture, lavender-hued corridors, and guest rooms done in restful beiges, grays, and more lavender. (The orange Lucite cubes flanking each bed echo the color of the Golden Gate Bridge.) The old TV’s have been switched out for flat-screens, which helps dispel a faint 1990’s air. Perhaps the miniblinds could go, too.
