“My one and only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

I have been staying at The Mercer for the last ten years and never hesitate in choosing this Hotel every time I visit NYC.
The hotel staff are always welcoming and the service is excellent.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Mercer to anyone and I much prefer the Soho location.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe or loft room

I have stayed at The Mercer a few times and am always pleased with the excellent customer service. The staff go over and above to be helpful but are discreet at the same time. The rooms are clean and modern and the lounge is perfect for having a coffee and people watching in the mornings. Expensive but you definitely get what you pay for.

A little jewel of a hotel with perfectly comfortable rooms, wonderful shower and the latest FACE Stockholm bathroom amenities. A truly posh experience that makes affordable luxury an absolute reality in New York's SOHO. Wonderful shopping, terrific new trendy restaurants and easy access to everywhere.
The best part of this hotel are the very people that make this property hum so effortlessly. The General Manger, Gilles Stellardo must be so very proud of his team. As a first time guest at this very comfortable but unpretentious hotel, I could not help but feel all the luxury qualities of The Four Season, Mandarin Oriental, The Park Hyatt and the Peninsula Hotel but the charm and friendliness of some of the best Leading Hotels of The World. The Mercer Hotel has a terrific feel about it. One that should be experience with a loved one and without any apprehension.
My very best experience in this hotel was the exceptional service at the Mercer Kitchen restaurant and the delightful menu served in the lobby area. What a wonderful team of true professionals. My biggest congratulations go to Chef Veronica Gittens. She is simply brilliant and her food creations out of this world. And so confirmed by my guest and friend Chef Jonathan Krinn and my four other hungry guests. Thank you Chef Veronica for a truly memorable Friday March 28, 2014.

There is a relaxed feeling in this hotel, you always meet celebrities, the food is good, the staff nice, the rooms feel like home, It is located in the middle of Soho which is my favorite area in the city which also makes it convenient to discover all the new trendy restaurants.

Room Tip: the studios are a nice value

We have beeb staying at The Mercer for at least two weeks a year for approximately ten years and have never been disappointed. The rooms, while not grandiose in size, are decorated with refined simplicity, the staff (many of whom have been with The Mercer for many years) are great, and the service is excellent. The location is also excellent for both public and private transportation and the downtown restaurant scene. The only negative is dealing with the hoards of shoppers on the nearby streets (especially on week-ends and in the pre-Christmas season.)

Well cooked, great surroundings, fantastic service. The team was really good at looking after my husband, my 1 year old and me.We sat upstairs as it was easiest with the pushchair, but saw how lovely it was downstairs too. Looked like an amazing place to go for drinks in the evening too.
