“Perfect as Always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2010

I have stayed at The Bowery twice now & love this property so much! I recently stayed at the end of August & had such a nice stay! The feel is so authentic & lived in, but a brand new construction on the Bowery in NYC. I live in the city, but love trying new hotels & this is one of my all time favorites! :) the staff, from Tilo at the Front Desk who always swiftly checks me in to Mike F. in the Lobby Bar who was a great server & all of the doormen, who are incredibly charming & kind, especially Ross----such a great team all around:) My room this time (316) was lovely & apparently upgraded due to availability, which was very nice! the small seating area was nice & the soaking tub & outstanding shower were perfection as always! I don't think I've ever stayed at another hotel in America with such amazing showers--you will never want to get out:) The food at Gemma is so yummy, including the Rigatoni & the Chocolate cake....so good! Room service for breakfast is lovely & fairly reasonable for a city hotel. Just sitting in the lobby is fun---a nice mix of hipsters, young travelers & locals. The bath products from Bigelow, including the bubble bath are also so nice:) the bed is very comfy with really good pillows! even the cookies at turndown are so thoughtful-----the guys & girls running the hotel are doing a great job! kudos to everyone!!! i'll def. be back soon:)

Warm Regards,
Patrick Winkler

As soon as we walked through the glass doors, we were both treated amazingly and all the staff were extremely friendly. We were fortunate to have been given a corner room on the 10th Floor, which had ceiling to floor windows overlooking the LES, Soho and the Financial District. Which was just hypnotisingly beautiful.

The room itself was very large and had a huge bed, and was very comfortable.

The general style of the hotel is of a very old school, colonial look, with lots of wood and dark colours. The patio at back was extremely beautiful.

A must place to stay.

I've stayed here before and wanted to bring my husband back to celebrate our 8th anniversary. We had a 11th floor corner king. What a GREAT stay. Without exception, every single person who worked here gave us flawless service - warm, professional, responsive, friendly. That's hard to achieve for a hotel, and I'm generally a very picky consumer. We had dinner at Gemma's twice, and the food was fantastic. It was a most wonderful stay and HB is now our "go to" place when we're in NYC. We've stayed at Blue Moon, Waldorf, and used airbnb for apartments, which is great when we bring our kids. But if it's just the two of us, Bowery Hotel can't be beat. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful job!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

as former resident of nyc, and 20 years of monthly travel to the city for business and play i have found my favorite place... as this has been my hotel for the last 4 or 5 years.

first... you must realize this is the bowery. there are more than 3 shelters for the less fortunate. I prefer to stay downtown, and enjoy the diverse lifetsyle and the freedom of the frentic mid town lifestyle. my wife, who has stayed with me frequently, has never had a problem and loves exploring the streets of nolita, soho and the east village; and always returns feeling safe.

other great things that i love about the bowery?

1. the service... from the minute you walk past the door men, everyone makes you feel comfortable... balancing friendly acknowledgements with the need fro discretion and privacy.

2. the rooms have wonderful views looking up and downtown... and cross town.

3. if you want a room that is quite .. the back rooms off the bowery are very quite....

4. The lounge is a great place to start and end a night. i also will have small meetings in the back courtyard, as the location is serene and private.

5. the beds and pillows are super comfortable, and some rooms even have an overhead fan... which i love.

6. the decor of the hotel is old school and comfortable. i am a fan of modern architecure, but the old dark woods, rugs and hand picked furniture in the lobby provides a tranqual refuge from a hectic day and night.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Bowery and have to say it's the best hotel i've ever stayed in. The rooms are very, very comfortable & clean, all the staff are great and special thanks to Jamie on the front desk who helped me out with a late booking to the Comedy Cellar!! Overall I can't think of 1 negative thing to say about this place & have no hesitation in recommending it to all in T.A. land!

We have just returned from three nights at this hotel and I spent the last day begging my husband to extend our trip - that's how much I loved it. The Bowery Hotel is a wonderful little hotel in the best location - lots of great restaurants and shops on the doorstep and 2 subway stations within 5 minutes walk. The room was so comfortable - they provide everything you need. We had a queen room on the 11th floor and it was a good size and had a great view - perfect for a couple on a short break and really great value for money. The hotel has an old school charm but being new it has all the modern technology you could need (including free wifi and a stupid number of electrical sockets in the room). The staff are very friendly and courteous and seem genuinely happy in their work. It really did feel like home for the time we were there and I don't see myself staying anywhere else in nyc on future visits.

This sweet little hotel was recommended to us by a local. We absolutely loved it. The hotel sits on the site of a former garage. It is decorated with antiques and looks like it was built decades ago...but with all of the modern conveniences. We were greeted warmly on arrival , checked in quickly and escorted to our room. The room was lovely, very clean and had a nice view. The shower was fantastic with a rain shower head, lots of marble and wonderful bath products. The bar in the hotel is a must see. We have already recommended it to others!
