We just returned home after a 4 night stay at the Hotel on Rivington. I have never experienced such incredible and welcoming service at a hotel before.
SERVICE: Everyone from the front desk manager to the doormen, to the housekeeping staff were so nice and helpful. I particularly want to thank Josh and Eddie, who gave us advice on everything from the best place to get flowers for our Thanksgiving hosts, to who has the best pizza (all of which was spot on!) They made arrangements for cars, luggage, etc. After we checked out, the folks at the front desk not only held our luggage for us for the afternoon, but also charged all of our electronic devices for our 6 hour flight home!
ROOM: We had a high (18th floor) corner King room with balcony. The room was gorgeous, with floor to ceiling windows for a breathtaking view of the city, the bed (thermopedic mattress, wonderful cotton bedding) sooo comfortable, and the shower was the best shower ever , complete with a view. Room service was very fast and reasonable.
My only recommendation to management would be to provide drawers in the room. Our room only had a small closet for hanging things, so we had to keep most of our clothes in our suitcase on the floor. Also, the hallways are extremely dark and a bit 'tired' looking (in contrast to the gorgeous room), and could probably use a makeover but that was not a huge deal.
LOCATION: the location in the LES is perfect! So many fabulous shops, restaurants, etc.
Overall, a great experience at what I feel is a reasonable prices for Manhattan. I would love to stay there again!
