to begin i stayed in newyork from the end of febuary to the beginning of march and yeh the weather in new york wasnt nice but my stay here was absolutely one of my highlights of my stay. The entrance to the hotel is vintage and the decor itself is beautiful .This is definately boutique style , from the bathrooms , to the showers , as well as the corrodors. From reading the reviews i was preparing for a really small room , but WOW it was just perfect and cute for me , i am a 5ft 9inches in height so i fit in nicely. I also was pleasantly suprised by the friendliness of the Staff.Tiffany helpful as well beautiful and kind , Christopher was always friendly and great speaker with a refreshing outlook. I also enjoyed oscars company , a very refined , well spoken individual .Other staff that also made my stay were john and jamie , who always greeted me with a smile. I loved the character of this place , the common room was a good place to meet people from different parts of the world.The showers were always hot and the floor i was on were mostly women. It was overall an expereince i will remember.
Thankyou to all who work at The Bowery house.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
