“Simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Love this place. Great beds (honestly, supremely comfortable) and great location. Easy access to mid-town and Soho. Great bar (especially the garden out the back). Highlight though were the staff - couldn't have been more helpful (see the photo of the chap hailing us a cab in the middle of the heaviest rain I've seen in years). Will defintely stay again. Recommeded without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. My only criticim is the normal rooms are on the small side.

This hotel is the first hotel I have ever stayed in that I didn't have one complaint. Not one. The room service was better than most of the restaurants I ate at around here, the Internet was included and very fast. The attention to every little detail was a welcomed change in a very cookie cutter world of traveling and living out of hotels. I would recommend this hotel to everyone and will now use this to compare other hotels I stay at.

I have stayed at The Bowery multiple times, but recently stayed a few nights ago & had another absolutely amazing stay!!- the hotel is incredible & my favorite hotel in downtown New York!

I stayed in 909 for this stay & my room was so amazing! It's on the corner, with 2 walls of Floor-to-Ceiling factory style glass windows with an amazing view of the city, including the stunning new Freedom Tower- awesome view & really stunning at all hours, especially at night! On one side, I could also see the Empire State Building! The details at this hotel are what makes the place really special:

-the CO Bigelow bath amenities that smell of Lavender & Mint, including Bubble bath.
-the little tube of Marvis toothpaste in the bathroom.
the absolutely amazing soaking tub with incredible rain fall shower with insane pressure!!
-the well-stocked mini bar
-cool wooden floors
-lovely rugs that are soft to the touch.
-the little tray of cookies given at turndown service that are really delicious!:)
-the soft sheets & amazing bed
-the cool ceiling fan
-the lovely design details in the room
-sleek Flat Screen Samsung TV that worked very well
-windows that open for Fresh air
-original keys that you can leave with the Front Desk when popping out for the day
etc, etc......

I just love this hotel- the vibe is incredibly chill, with a hip, yet homey vibe. Cool people work in the hotel including extremely charming doormen who are super cool, lovely Front Desk agents, very nice room service servers, sweet housekeeping attendants- everyone is so nice! In particular, Ross is an amazing bellman & super nice! & Abbey & Gigi at the Front Desk are lovely; there was also another young boy who was working the PM shift on 7/24 at the front desk...I didn't get his name, but he was very gracious & kind & also was very nice to give me a 1pm checkout. Dan in reservations is awesome! He typically makes my reservations & makes the process so smooth! Everyone here rocks!!

The food is amazing including an absolutely amazing Roasted Chicken from Room Service, delicious Paninis from the Lobby bar for Lunch, fantastic Hazelnut Gelato, amazing Freshly pressed Orange Juice for Breakfast, & a really fantastic Arugula Salad with Fresh Parmesan- I had amazing meals while staying!

If you want to be in the area of New York, I'd strongly recommend staying at The Bowery! It's incredibly unique & so different from any corporate chain hotel. This is my second home in NYC, even though I live here.....it's my favorite place in New York!

Best,
Patrick Winkler

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.
