11 Howard is an innovative hotel located in SoHo, at the crossroads of the Bowery, Chinatown and Little Italy. This storied area of Lower Manhattan is one of the borough's last great domains. In the 1960s and ‘70s, it was an epicenter of contemporary art, home to legends like Chuck Close and Frank Stella. The artistic spirit endures in an eclectic mix of culture, fashion and food. Destined to become a classic, 11 Howard answers the call for a relaxed, smartly curated place to stay in this dynamic district. 11 Howard’s guiding principle, “conscious hospitality,” defines its fundamental character. We approach each aspect of the hotel, from design to location amenities to our ultramodern brand of service, which awareness, purpose and thoughtful consideration.

This hotel is very... not 5-star. Absolutely no amenities, terrible in-room wifi, and even worse (loud) communal working spaces. It's pretty on the inside, but when you look closely: everything is made cheaply. The doors, the fixtures... everything is just not quite there. There's no room service at all, and when I called down for 2 water bottles they told me it would be $30. No coffee in the rooms, no bathrobes, and no gym either. The cleaning staff only ever cleaned half of my room (I would get back and I would either have new towels or my bed made, never both). Service is abysmal, I asked for 2 wake up calls which never happened. It's like, fine... not dirty and comfortable enough. But it's really more on the 3-star tier, which is why the price is sooo confusing to me. Weirdly they also have a private sauna company working out of the 3rd floor, who also take up the communal working spaces, and the bar/nightclub is LOUD. I was woken up at least 5 times during the night by people slamming doors, and when I returned from dinner there were people puking outside of the hotel. Overall, the stay was okay (never bad enough that I wanted to switch hotels) but I really wouldn't recommend especially if you're expecting it to live up to its price point.

I had a great stay at 11 Howard. It's in a great neighborhood, quiet part of SoHo, close to some great restaurants like Tyger and Le Cou Cou. I was on the 6th floor, had no spectacular view, and it was quiet. Staff were very nice. Someone was at the door to help me with my luggage and, upon request, staff always provided me with bottled water at the reception. The room was nice and clean. The TV does not have Chromecast, but did have basic cable tv channels and on-demand movies. I'm a fan of Chromecast and the ability to watch Netflix or other apps on the tv. They also did not offer slippers or a vanity set. For the price, I was expecting, at least, make-up remover wipes, cotton balls/pads and/or q-tips. However, they had lotion, conditioner and shampoo and soap, of course. I did order room service once and it was very good and delivered in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, I would stay here again.

11 Howard is a good location in the midst of SoHo offering a kind of boutique feeling.
Reception is scaled down limiting itself to a small walk around desk instead of the standard reception. Up the stairs you find the bar and a very small lounge area. No breakfast restaurant as far as I could see.
Rooms are slightly minimalist with comfy beds and nice bathroom.
All in all a rather scaled down feeling. Check-was smooth although room was not ready at 14:00 my luggage was taken care of.
Check out was not as smooth as I was first presented the bill for another room and then was supposed to have a copy mailed to me but this didn't work so I had to ask twice to get it. Room for improvement here.
No VIP treatment although we were a group booking in total 30 person-nights.
Two in our group changed rooms due to noise level 1 at top floor due to ventilation fans, 2 at street

Stayed here on the Amex program and it's been a major disappointment. The room "upgrade" is laughable...I couldn't imagine what kind of shoebox I'd be in had I not been granted this supposed benefit. Rooms are getting worn and dated too. The $100 credit doesn't apply to anything you'd want it to (bar, restaurant, spa) but, hey I guess being able to write off 3 chicken tenders from room service for $35 counts for something. The doorman, when present, doesn't open the door for you or welcome you. Don't even think about requesting minor conveniences like late check out because "they're fully booked today" despite rooms going for under $200 on every major online booking site. Absolutly terrible in every respect. Will not be staying here again. There are too many better options in New York.

We stayed for one night Thursday 11/18. We had an awful experience. We booked a terrace room which was great. Arrived tired and ready to relax for a few hours before our event that evening. However upon coming into our floor we see that there is a big event happening in two of the suites. With lines of people outside our door in the hall way waiting to be admitted. We asked to be moved rooms. The new room on the other side of the floor was equally nice however the catering staff for the event were hanging outside our room the whole time chatting. I tried to drown out the noise with the TV but it was pointless. We complained on our way out but the front desk staff didn’t seem to care. The following morning there were event staff removing furniture throughout the floor. The main areas of the hotel were also closed off due to a Netflix show being filmed. Basically this is an event space not a hotel. Despite complaining at front desk no effort was made to improve our experience in any way. Very disappointing and not what we expect of a five star property. Stay here for the location and vibe but not if you expect a real five star experience.

Unfortunately a bad experience.. I have been there in 2019 before Covid with my husband and it has been a really good and comfortable stay. We came back in NYC last Xmas but unfortunately we found a worn out property. The paint of the furniture was peeled, the carpet in the room was dirty… after Xmas days we moved in Miami but we had booked in advance a night in January before our flying from NYC to Rome. The room has been worst than the first one. Before entering in the room on the floor in front of the door and all along the hallway there was a cable covered by tape and some different Wi-Fi router, maybe a sudden problem solved as possible (but 11H is a five stars hotel not a motel). When we entered in the room we found a sorprese in the bathroom. It was used, with some paper in the wc and a terrible smell of marijuana. We called the reception to solve the problem and after a quarter we received the visit of an housekeeper who asked again about the problem and then cleaned the bathroom. Before she gone my husband asked kindly to have a bottle of water and chocolate (usually complementary in this hotel) and the housekeeper with a derisive laugh said ‘…so you wanted chocolate…’ I don’t know what upset me more, if this bad situation or the housekeeper behavior. In any case I slept the last night in nyc wrapped in the smell of marijuana that I hate. I don’t think I will go back at 11 Howard.

We stayed at 11 Howard after a whole bunch of people who’d never stayed there told us it was “meant to be great”. Well, it ain’t.

Our room was small (yes, it is New York, but, wow) and in a poor state. The mini bar was actually hot. One ice machine across 4 floors worked. The super cool staff are just that - and only that. And the place is DARK.

The hotel did book us a car from JFK into Manhattan for the princely sum of $250 Australian dollars (an Uber black - $150), so that’s something. 😕

Our stay was incredibly disappointing. I would not recommend to anyone who likes (a) space (b) personal service (c) cold drinks.

Worth mentioning that Elle MacPherson was staying at the hotel when we were there and her room (the penthouse) looked awesome. The lesson: be a supermodel with 5 million Instagram followers. If you’re not that - stay elsewhere.

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week for a business trip. The hotel is in a great location close to shopping and Tribeca restaurants, as well as near the Canal St subway spot.

I'm giving a very good rating primarily for the hotel staff and its location. The front desk team was always friendly and helpful, as were housekeeping, concierge and bell staff. One previous review complained that the staff are too young and casual, but I actually love that they're not pretentious like in other NY hotels (I've stayed at many!).

I liked the library where I had breakfast and lunch on some days and which can be used to work from. Le Coucou downstairs is great for dinner.

The only downside of the hotel is that the room was miniscule. Upon check-in I was told that we have been upgraded and I can see that the room is bigger than the one originally booked; however, even the "upgraded" room has no space to even open 1 large suitcase in and very little closet space. The bathroom was beautiful but tiny.

Despite the tiny room, I had a great stay at 11 Howard.

My recent stay at the 11 Howard Hotel was an absolute pleasure. The hotel has a chic and modern interior that exudes luxuriousness at every corner. The staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and catered to my every need. The room was decorated with high-quality furnishings and boasted breathtaking views of the city. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning which provided a great start to my day. The hotel’s location was also very convenient for exploring the surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a refined hotel experience.

We came here pre-Covid (late Jan 2020) and had a great stay. Super trendy, rooms were new, staff was great, so we decided to stay again on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend to celebrate our anniversary.

The staff was not welcoming, they actually seemed uninterested in working there Maybe because it was a holiday weekend? Or possibly because the hotel was noted in the Netflix series Inventing Anna they thought they were known and didn't have to care? Either way, it did not start off well.

They sent us to our room, the hallways are super dark (like a nightclub) then we got to our room and it was also dark and so small (compared to the last one we stayed in). There were scratches and nicks on the walls, the iPad to order items/contact the desk didn't work. I tried to upload a video of the bouncing iPad (so you couldn't click anything but TA won't let me upload it). So you had to call for anything you needed.

Overall it just felt eh. I also feel like with 2 years of less visitors, you'd think they would have spruced the place up a bit. It was quite the opposite.

We ordered room service around 11pm, and brought up the wrong items and the person delivering the items was impatient and it wasn't even very late.

Overall I feel like a two is generous, a 1.5 would be more aligned.

Answer from Rebecca D
Hello. I stayed in this room back in July and like you I couldn’t find out much information before hand. I had incredible views of the city from the terrace and the terrace itself was a great size. I have posed a picture of the views from the terrace on my recent review. If it will let me post anymore to give you a better idea of the view then I will. I’m sure you will have a great stay as the terrace room doesn’t disappoint!
