Had a great week-long stay here: rooms are small but well-equipped and they all have fantastic views over Lower East Side by virtue of the fact that the building stands several storeys higher than anything else in the area. Very designer-led with great back-lit headboards above the beds. It's a great area and you can walk from the hotel to SoHo, Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Financial District and even Mid-town as long as you're prepared to spend the hour walking there.
Only downsides would be lack of a bath (in mid-range rooms), expense and staff service. Although we didn't have much cause to speak to reception, we did ask them to book our pre-paid shuttle service back to the airport, and gave them our receipt with the telephone number and booking ref on. The head concierge booked the wrong shuttle without realising, which meant we were waiting 90mins for a non-existent shuttle, before having to catch a taxi at our own cost in order to make our flight in time. All email correspondence since has been met with a wall of silence! So although I would probably stay here again for the location, I would prefer not to ask reception for anything and would certainly organise all travel arrangements myself!More
