We stayed 2 nights in a corner king room facing downtown and the east side. This is an interesting, fun, well-managed property with thoughtful details. We would return when staying downtown.
The room was very small, but well laid out. With the large corner windows we felt like we were on a perch over the city. Loved that. Comfortable bed, and marble bathroom with brass fittings and a huge shower. It has a very old feeling, like the hotel has been there forever.
The lobby is comfortable with tables, chairs and sofas. It is prioritized for guests, and often busy. We had lunch there with guests, including a toddler and it was pleasant. The guests we saw were of all ages with lots of Europeans and some wedding attendees. We had breakfast at Gemma next door and it was fine.
Every staff member we met during our stay was excellent. Free and easy Wi-Fi throughout the property-- the way it should be in 2013.
Great walking location if you are interested in SoHo, East Village, Nolita, Lower East Side, Greenwich Village or anyplace downtown.
I can see how this hotel might not be for everyone. The best way I can describe it is that it has a mellow low-key vibe to it. It is not posh, seems worn in spots, like an old pair of comfortable jeans.
We had a good stay.
