I really liked this hotel. The location is great, tucked far enough away, but a brisk walk or subway/cab ride from all the activities. The staff was professional & friendly. They really tried hard. This is not your typical hotel, it's small and mysterious. There's no lobby, the staff check you in as you walk in the door. The rooms... More

We stayed here for two nights. When arrival, somebody in the sidewalk came to us and opend the door for us. Since he did not seem to be wearing suits or an uniform, we didn't recognize that he was actually working for the hotel and first we were a little bit guarded. Due to the tireness from our late flight,... More

Very friendly staff (morning staff friendlier than night staff), and a very dog friendly hotel! Great hotel if you are traveling with a pet! They offer room service for your dog also dog walking services. Very modern hotel however the room is cozy, comfortable and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud. The location of this hotel is great...

Mixed feelings about this hotel. Love the sleek ultra-modern look of it, annoyed by the details. Examples: confusing entrance--no sign, no street number, entry door at a weird angle to the street; no visible front desk, odd check-in process; halls and elevators cave-like in their dimness; inadequate, very hot halogen fixture over the sink; non-functional light in the shower; room...

We stayed in The Cooper Square Hotel in June 2009 because it was the most affordable but nice hotel for the price we could find around our favorite area in NYC - the Greenwich Village/SoHo/LES area. After flying from California we got to the hotel in the late afternoon. Our cab driver didn't know where the hotel was so we... More

I stayed @ The Cooper on 27 June 2009---The hotel was so awful, with dirty, deeply uninspiring rooms & an utterly pretentious staff, that I checked out the same night!!! Never once have I done this is a hotel.....To begin, there is a strong lack of staff @ the hotel----the whole 5 hr's that I was in this hole in... More

I just got back from a five night stay at the Cooper Square in June while I was in town for work and I loved every minute of it! Before moving to London last year, I used to live in the East Village (about four blocks from the Cooper Sq) for nine years so I have always loved the neighborhood.... More

We are lifetime New Yorkers living in the country for the past two years. We're only 100 miles away so we can go into NY for the day but we often stay overnight. We usually don't splurge on a fairly expensive hotel for this purpose. But it was my husband's birthday, so it seemed like an opportunity for a special... More

I stayed here three nights for pleasure (followed by two nights in a different hotel for business) ... I would highly recommend this for someone who would like a stylish modern hotel with superior service in a convenient area (but it may be out of the way for someone who is looking for the Time Square/Broadway show type of experience)....
