The Restoration is analogous to a vintage automobile that’s been fully restored. The buildings were constructed between 1886 and 1940, but from peering around the masterfully restored department store and row house, you’d barely even notice the structure had wrinkles. Yes, the hardwood flooring is original in many spots. Sure, the exposed brick and high ceilings add a sense of character. But when you combine all of those vintage touches with the one- and two-bedroom suites’ more modern features (whimsical mirrors, stainless-steel kitchen appliances and vessel sinks), you uncover a property with two very different stories to tell. It’s up to you to decide which one you choose to let influence your stay most.
