This is my third stay (I think) at the Crosby, and it just gets better. Owned by London-based Firmdale Group, the Crosby has the lively style, impeccable personal service and great location of the Soho, Haymarket and other sister hotels. If you want all the great aspects of a boutique property and none of the we're-too-cool to be helpful vibe of trend-surfing hotels like the Standard or any Schrager property past, present or future, then the Crosby is YOUR hotel as it is mine.
The room was decent size for NY, and beautifully done in classic Firmdale style - a unique combination of modern and classic British style - think what a hotel by Paul Smith might look like, and you're not far off.
But what sets this hotel above and beyond is the service. How do they know my name wherever I go? How do they remember how I like my coffee? And make it all seem effortless instead of as a play for a tip??? I don't want to know, just keep treating me this way back and it will remain my ONLY choice of hotels in the cities they are in. Right now, that's NYC and London, but I have heard they are scouting West Coast properties now.
The one inexplicable shortcoming is only the suites have bathtubs. If you can live without a tub, the showers are big and have amazing water pressure, then make this YOUR hotel as well. You will never regret the choice.
