Situated close to the beach and the Gordon Street gallery district, Art + Hotel’s lobby sets the tone: Visitors are greeted with a video installation by Sigalit Landau, an Israeli artist whose work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The 62 rooms here are modern and spare, and each hallway in the building features work by a different local artist. Don’t miss the roof deck and the extensive Israeli breakfast buffet, complete with salat katzutz (chopped salad), smoked fish, and cheeses. — Michele Chabin
