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!
