“Great Location, Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I stayed here for a fun-filled weekend to explore the Lower East Side and loved it! It's a great location to shops, restaurants and bars. We were able to walk to Little Italy, China Town, Grenwich Village, and East Village. The rooms were very modern and offered great views of the city. The shower was huge and offered two showerheads. It's also near the Brooklyn Bridge so you can easily take a quick cab to jet over to Brooklyn and explore. I will be a returning guest next time around!

Room Tip: The Suites are Perfect!!!

My visit to this hotel was really briljant. The athmosphere, the staff everything was perfect. We where here for a holiday, but also for business travelers this hotel is suiteable and price worthy. The design of the lobby and restaurant was done by Marcel wanders, a dutch amigo, original, but not overdone.

This hotel is more like a lavish apartment. The views are amazing and if you can get a room with a balcony, its even better. I got the best pictures! The bed was super comfortable, bathroom was great. Staff was super nice and helpful as we asked about places around the area. I would definitely go back!!

Even though I live in New York, I've stayed at THOR twice - once when it was still under construction and once on my birthday. Both times were off-peak and we got a good price. With a good price, the high, corner rooms are great. Choose sunrise or sunset orientation. If you choose sunrise, you might want to set the alarm to close the curtains as the sunrise, or you will be blasted awake.

If you pay a high price, be aware that some of the details are not great. The rooms are dark at night, things are frayed here and there, our tv didn't work well, service wasn't great, etc. The entry lobby is terrible! Pictures on my blog @ http://bit.ly/vvthor

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel! Floor to ceiling windows. The bathrooms are beautiful. I showered while taking in the entire city! The restaurant breakfast was great! Such a gem! Service was wonderful, everyone we encountered treated us like royalty, it is truly worth checking out! Decor is definitely out there but so NY!

Ok, so I am not a fan of trendy hotels for the rich under 30 set. Beds too low, rooms halls and baths too dark. All common attributes.

Here the rooms are for NY decent sized, and we were on the 8th floor which is exactly above roof level of adjacent buildings. Since this borders on what was till very recently a ghetto, there are no tall buildings around. Any lower would have been scary dark. At this level and above the wrap around windows make for a great view.

The neighborhood is ok locations wise if you need to be down here to go to SOHO or perhaps NYU, but not for the faint of heart. It is in transition, and frankly, for the prices I would choose a better locale where I felt safer. The place is also very clearly for hipsters -- the mini bar includes sex toys and lubes, and the bathroom sink has a spot where someone clearly had been using a straight razor to chop up drugs. Rap music played in the lobby......

The staff however seems very concerned about service and is very friendly. All in all, ok, overpriced for where it is -- I would pay extra to be at the Gansevoort, or pay a lot less and be at the Holiday Inn Fashion District .

Room Tip: Get 8th floor or above for light!

Not what I expected on arrival - blink and you could miss the entrance. The ground floor lobby is small and dark - check in is on the 2nd floor - also very dark, which is not for everyone.

Positives: Great huge beds, fantastically stocked/diverse minibar, free dressing gowns, great toiletries, great room service food - quickly delivered, great location - 10 mins to soho, restaurants and cafes nearby, free cookies/biscuits each night, great shower, most of the staff were friendly, great TV services, adjustable air con & heating, no noticeable noise, welcome note & popcorn.

Negatives: Tiny towels, awful view from the 10th floor (overlooking a car park), 20% & $2.50 room service charge (& they still leave the tip section blank when you sign!), housekeeping was a little slow, Wifi was a little slow, no hotel service guide, hotel looked a little tired in places, communal areas are odd - doesn't feel like a hotel - feels like a restaurant with bedrooms. A bit too trendy for my taste.

Room Tip: No views from the 10th floor.
