Our property, 220 Bowery, was built in 1927 as a manufacturing building. It operated in this capacity until it was reborn as The Prince Hotel in the 1940’s to serve as temporary lodging for soldiers returning home from World War II. All floors of The Prince Hotel were rebuilt with single room cabins that were just large enough for a bed and storage of essential items. The bathrooms were made communal so that the hotel operators could maximize its occupancy and house as many soldiers as possible. With its prime location and easy access to vices such as gambling, prostitution and saloons - some of the soldiers never left and decided to make the majority of the 200 cabins their long-term homes. It was in these single rooms that many of the Bowery’s most eccentric characters lived for decades adding to the lore and drama of New York’s former skid row. At The Bowery House, we have decided to preserve and restore every detail of the remarkable 1940’s cabin craftsmanship and in turn provide unique, authentic and historic accommodations to travelers from around the world. Part museum and part hotel, we hope you enjoy not only the neighborhood but also the living history that is The Bowery House.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.

Stayed at the Bowery House with some classmates doing job interviews and tours in the city and it was the perfect place for us to crash, gather, and hang out in the evening. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the building was safe, and the amenities were just as

Greetings! Sorry for the delay in response. Best way from Newark to our property is (1) taxi, but may be pricey, or (2) take a train from the airport to penn station in the city. You will then take our local train (R/W train), take it downtown, and get off at Prince Street Station. Hope this helps!

Greetings! Yes, it's safe to leave your luggage in your cabins, as no one will enter the cabin unless instructed by the guest. However luggage storage is offered anytime during your stay. After check out, it will be $10 for 24 hours. Hope this helps. Regards.
