Loved the size of the hotel and the proximity to SoHo shopping. The rooms are lovely - bathroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Amenities are unusual and lovely. Wonderful desk service, staff helpful around. Would recommend eating outside of the hotel as so many options close by. Wonderful stay.

We have been lucky enough to stay at The Mercer a few times, once with our then newborn baby boy. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, the food in cafe and the restuarant is great, and the rooms make you feel like you have stepped into a small and simple but beautifully luxurious haven. Location for shopping is... More

The Mercer is an oasis of peace, quietness, elegance and service. Of all hotels in Manhattan this one is superb. No over-the-top parties, no loud groups, just quality service amidst the center of Soho.

Lovely reception at check-in and the handwritten card with bottle of wine in the room made for a very warm welcome. The room itself has everything one might need (lots of closet space!). Bed was excellent. Breakfast was really nice and we had a lovely diner at the Mercer Kitchen. As I was on a business trip, I cannot give... More

We loved our stay a The Mercer. It's right in the heart of everything we like to see and do in NYC, the staff was wonderful and the room made us feel right at home. We saw Ralph Fiennes in the lobby too which was kind of cool. We'll stay again for sure.

The Mercer Hotel can be described as understated elegance with a lot of class in one of the most desirable and convenient locations in New York City, So Ho. It’s the little things. A warm friendly greeting at the front desk was our first encounter with the staff. The personalized attention to detail was obvious. Upon entering the room we... More

Trendy is good but service is more important particularly at $600 per night for a room with the smallest shower room I've come across for a long time. Please note the word shower- the Mercer is so trendy that less than 50% of the 75 rooms have tubs per the front desk. The highlight was failing to get the waiter... More

I lived in New York for 17 years and came back to visit for a weekend. I thought I would splurge and treat myself to the Mercer. I've never paid that much to stay in the city, so I was really looking forward to my stay. It began by checking into my room on the 6th floor, where there were... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
