Editorial review:

The novelty alone of staying in a 24-hour museum is sufficient to sell you on the idea. And then there is the fact that it is visually stunning, from the lobby which features rotating exhibits of engaging works by living artists, to the numerous pieces which adorn the halls, elevators as well as the out of this world Proof on Main restaurant. The rooms are in cool tones and sport exposed brick and all the latest gadgets, such as 42-inch HDTVs, WiFi, 500 thread count sheets) and delightfully quirky touches such as rubber duckies in the bath and silver cups.
