“Homey, Inviting, Comfortable and Lacking Pretense”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Truth be told I loved everything about the hotel, from the look and feel to the staff and service. Gemma, their in-house Italian eatery is a gem of restaurant... And they deliver to your room 24/7!

The location is perfect for "my NYC", which is essentially Lower Manhattan.... So if you're planning on visiting Soho, Chelsea, the LES, Noho, the Village, etc, the location is ideal.

The only issues I had were relating to the outdoor rattan/basket-weave furniture in my terrace. They were well past their prime and broken in places. Half of the seat on the outdoor 2-seater sofa is badly broken in, and most oddly, releases a cascade of collected rainwater (?) from inside it somehow when sat on. Strangely enough the seat cushion remains dry throughout!

But regardless, the experience overall was lovely, so thank you very much Bowery Hotel and staff!

Room Tip: The one-bedroom suites are the business! Apparently room number 705, a One-Bedroom Terrace Suite, ha...

The pictures of the Bowery give you an idea of what to expect, and the extras (super attentive doormen, comfortable beds, turn down service and reception staff (who are all concierges) make it truly memorable.Location is pefect as well - not too far from Downtown Manhattan, and surrounded by a lively SoHo scene...altogether a great package.

what a wonderful hotel. I had a room on the 9th floor with a view of Manhattan that would leave you speechless, especially at dawn. Common areas were exotic and posh. Room service was a treat. Bathroom sleek complete with Bigelow bath products. A five star oasis.

I love staying at The Bowery. It's very elegant but also small enough that you feel like you're staying with family. The staff there are super friendly, and when you travel a lot for work that makes a huge difference.

The Bowery is a truly great hotel. The design aesthetics are beautiful and the beds are so comfortable.

The hotel is in one of the best areas on manhattan, right next to SoHo and it's surrounded by new up and coming bars and restaurants. The bar in The Bowery is great to chill out in and often full of NYs elite, that being said the drinks are fairly pricey but I suppose that's to be expected.

The rooms vary within the hotel. I've stayed in 8 different rooms and have always preferred the rooms that face out onto Bowery as you get to see the sun rise. There are also some rooms that are classed as a queen room but have double aspect windows making them lovely and bright, I think they are 909 / 1009 & 1109.

There is a small gym in the basement that has a selection of free weights, a running machine, a rowing machine, a cross trainer, some yoga mats and Swiss balls but that is all.

I can't recommend this place highly enough, the staff are lovely, most of the rooms are great and the bedding on the beds is devine.

Room Tip: As I said I think the queen rooms that have the double aspect windows are 909 / 1009 & 1109 whic...

Is a nice hotel which is frequented by young Hollywood types.
I enjoyed my stay here but it wasn't amazing. Service was shoddy and the price was a bit steep for what you got.
Good location but if my friends didn't stay here I wouldn't choose it

The Bowery is everything you expect it to be: beautiful interior & bar, great location close to Nolita, and very classy. With that being said, it doesn't come without some NYC attitude.

We booked this hotel for our wedding, having being ex-New Yorkers we had tons of people coming in and out. Generally, everyone working there was fine with it but we did get a few eye-rolls. Also make sure if your booking under someone else's name, you get your name added as well. One night the front desk asked me to call up my fiance to confirm I was staying there before handing me a key. Not a huge deal, but a little annoying after I'd been at the hotel for a few days. Overall, the service is unpredictable, the staff either seems really nice or really snobby, depending on who you get. So don't expect that shelling out $800 a night is going to buy you top-notch service. I guess this is to be expected from a 'it' hotel in Manhattan.

On to the positives, we had booked a suite for about 4 nights, last minute we decided to stay another night and they were able to accomodate. Suites are HUGE by New York standards. The breakfast from Gemma's room service was so good, we must have ordered everyday.

If you need a beautiful place to stay and that's it, I would recommend The Bowery.
