Stayed for a week, my husband on business, me to explore the city. Hotel was well located for transport links, and SoHo a perfect antidote to the skyscrapers both up and downtown, with its boutiques, restaurants and galleries. Room was clean and light, bed (with down duvet and pillows) was fantastically comfortable, WiFi brilliant. Not the world's biggest room, but had everything we needed. Didn't hear from our neighbours, so the internal soundproofing must have done its job. That said, we were on the 15th floor and the traffic (with its incessant horn honking) was loud late into the night...not sure I'd like to be lower down. Bar was stylish - but with so many other wonderful places on your doorstep (Boqueria for tapas a particular favourite) why not explore? Make a point of going to Dominic Ansel on Spring St for breakfast pastries, too.
