“Best NYC hotel I have stayed in to date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I absolutely love this hotel. I've stayed in dozens of hotels in NYC and after staying here one night last week, this is my absolute favorite. Even over the Plaza. It's a gorgeous historic hotel in a trendy area near all sorts of great bars and restaurants. The service is top notch and unassuming. But the rooms are what really stand out and shine. I upgraded to a King room w/ bathtub and I honestly didn't want to leave my room! It was fantastic. Great space, charming details, amazing view, quiet and all around perfect. They had great small touches such as soft bed linens, wireless ipod speakers, free cookies, thick towels and bathrobes, and even bubble bath for the gigantic marble bath with a window view. I cannot wait to stay here again, it is definitely my hotel of choice now.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have bathtubs.

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.

Lived up to the hype!
Fantastic, professional front desk (a touch pretentious at first but warmed up)
Rooms were sweet, full of character and well appointed.
Linens were very very good
Overall, very cool vibe, didnt have to deal with too many douchy I-bankers like the other hipster boutique hotels.
Also, to get to my room, I didnt have to parade through a grand lobby to see and be seen which made for a very efficient and homey stay.

Ideally located for exploring new York. Hotel is modern but with lots of vintage style and character. Ideal for romantic weekend break. Good Italian restaurant and nice hotel bar- all quite hip and popular.

The Bowery is a very nice hotel in a great location close to everything the East Village, Soho, and downtown in general has to offer.
Despite being an obvious "hipster" hangout (rich hipsters anyway!) the staff are charming and helpful.
Another very enjoyable stay.

If you're looking for a cool hotel in New York with something a bit different and special then this is the place for you.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last August and absolutely loved it. The staff were brilliant, super friendly and very cool!

We loved the location of the hotel in the LES. Nice and close to Soho, Brookly Bridge, etc - but further away from Times Square (which is exactly what we wanted).

Overall, nice vibe, great staff, lovely room with the best bed I think I've ever slept in. Their restaurant, Gemma, next door was lovely too.

We'd most definitely stay here again. Without a doubt.

Great boutique hotel that is well located no matter what direction you are headed. First of all the corner room I had was wonderful with huge floor to ceiling casement windows. Very little street noise. While the room was on the small side, the view more than made up for it and the bathroom was large. I took room service for breakfast, and promptly arrived at the requested time. Great coffee. As far as the location you can easily walk to Greenwich village or Soho. The number 6 is just 2 blocks from the hotel and takes you right to midtown. I will definitely make a return trip.
