Housed in a stately cupola-topped building, Hotel Muse has quickly become one of the city’s luxe-boutique retreats. Thai firm PIA references a winning blend of fin de siècle France and Thailand’s Rama V era in the design theme, styling the darkened lobby with wrought-iron lattice walls and arching ceilings. The 174 rooms and suites—named after the Buddhist cosmic levels of Jatu, Dowadueng, Yama, Dusid, Nimman and Paranim—are sensuous and sophisticated, with hardwood floors, stuccoed ceilings, faux vintage suitcase drawers and plush linen. While Su Tha Ros on the 19th floor serves up rich and refined Thai flavors, the basement-level Medici features down-to-earth, solid Italian fare by Tuscan chef Francesco Lenzi, backed by a neo-industrial décor—think wood-paneled furnishings, leather wing sofas and wine barrels tucked among steel fixtures. T+L TIP The Jatu Deluxe and Dowadeung Corner Deluxe rooms have our favorite bathroom designs: claw-foot baths, hand-painted basins and mirrors etched with scenes from an old-time Siam.
