Great design, Traditional style, Eco-friendly

A chic but affordable home base for a New York City visit, the Harlem Flophouse is set in a historic 1890s townhouse that was once a single-family home. The hotel's name is a nod to the neighborhood's past, an homage to the musicians, poets, artists, and writers who passed through the area during the Harlem Renaissance. Barebones services keep prices low, but the rooms, each named for a different jazz great, offer lovely period details (carved moulding, intricate tin ceilings, vintage wallpaper). Four rooms have a sink but share two full baths (complete with antique clawfoot tubs); only the Duke Ellington room offers a private bathroom.
