“Os­car Wilde would feel at home at L’os­car—but so will you,” said Ni­cole Trili­vas in Forbes.com. The “boldly op­u­lent” new bou­tique ho­tel in­spired by the 19th-cen­tury bon vi­vant oc­cu­pies a Baroque-style former church and drips with the “deca­dent max­i­mal­ism” of de­signer Jacques Gar­cia. But “from the high gloss of the mar­ble to the miles of silk and vel­vet,” ev­ery­thing is “made to be touched, to be lived in and en­joyed.” So glide into the Bap­tist Bar for a cock­tail named after a deadly sin and breathe deeply with ev­ery step. L’os­car has its own an­i­mal­is­tic scent, and it’s “ut­terly se­duc­tive.” loscar.com; dou­bles from $379
