We had been to NYC numerous times, but had never stayed around Houston St. A friend had recommended this hotel to us, so we gave it a shot. Stepping through the front door is like stepping back in time to 1920's London. IT WAS AWESOME!!! As soon as you walk in, the atmosphere and décor grabs your full attention.
We were quickly checked in and directed to our room on the 12th floor. The décor and atmosphere continued every step of the way. We had a king room that was on a corner. The floor-to-ceiling windows on both outside walls allowed for expansive views of Noho, Soho, the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building. The bed was great and adorned with a Teddy Bear, dressed in British attire adorned with the hotel's name and logo, which was a cute touch.
The best part of the room was the bathroom. The bathroom had a large window right above the tub/shower. The sheers could be pulled over the window for privacy, or left open for views of the Empire State Building. I don't know of any other hotel in NYC that gives you a view of the Empire State Building from the tub/shower. Very cool that they incorporated this feature into the room design. The amenities were great and having a Bluetooth enabled Jawbone Jambox on the nightstand was a nice touch.
The lobby bar is a great place to sit, mingle and relax. Great décor, a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of seating.
The maids were great and the doormen were super nice and helpful in pointing out directions and things to see. All very professional. Some of the front desk staff were a little cold at times, but for the most part they were helpful and efficient.
Just an outstanding property and experience. We'll definitely be back.
