2017 Staycation

Lokal Hotel

When this tiny—as in six-unit—hotel opened this year, touting its Airbnb likeness and invisible service, we admit, we threw out a little side-eye. We were wrong. The automatic check-ins, quick restaurant delivery, Apple TVs and movie-set-cool decor (brass hardware in the full kitchens; exposed brick walls) are actually what we’ve always wanted in a hotel. We just didn’t know it.
