I booked 60 LES for a short stay in New York for my boyfriend's birthday. It is in a great location, in the middle of everything which the LES has to offer (great independent boutiques, restaurants (including Katz and Russ & Daughters) and Soho and Greenwich Village are both easily walkable and you are close to Williamsburg for a visit. I'd called ahead to ask if we could have a room with a view, as it was my boyfriend's first visit to NY, and the hotel were really sweet and gave us a free upgrade and one of the corner rooms, with a view of the Freedom Tower to our left, and Midtown to our right. It was a great sized room, comfy bed, nice shower - our only gripe (and it is a teeny one) is that the TV kept playing up, it was a little old. But then you don't watch much TV if you're visiting NY ;) I also want to add that the concierge desk were super helpful before we arrived, helping me secure bookings in restaurants which were impossible to book otherwise. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay Downtown.
