“The best hotel in Lower East Side”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights back in October for my girlfriends birthday. What an amazing place. The staff are awesome & really helpful. The rooms are stylish & spacious. Great views over Manhattan & the soaking tub was something else. Can't wait to stay here again soon.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

We were lucky enough to be given a room on the 18th floor, this meant it was relatively quiet in comparison to some of the other comments I've seen here. The staff were very helpful, offering us free cocktail vouchers to compensate for the lost baggage and making up a little toiletries package for us. The beds were the most comfortable beds I've ever been in. The room was spacious, we were in a corner king high floor. The sunrise over Alphabet City was awesome! The location of the hotel is great for bars, shops and easily accessible to Brooklyn via the Subway. There are some great little walking routes on the website which you can do. We ordered breakfast in the room on my Birthday morning, and it was 15 minutes late, so they offered it me for free! Great service. A bonus for my Birthday! The mini bar is brilliant and well stocked, although we didn't actually utilise it, but it was a novelty to look through! The only thing I do wish they had is tea/coffee making facilities in the room. I would definitely consider returning, I loved my stay there.

Room Tip: High Floor Corner King.

On arrival on a very foggy day first impressions at the entrance and surroundings were frankly disappointing, you enter through the insides of a giants tooth into a very dark boutique "designer" hotel.

after checking in and investigating the room, we thought we had got on the wrong flight and were in Amsterdam, vibrating love eggs, massage oil, condoms and an A4 menu of sex toys greeted us in the mini bar, no tea and coffee in the room, which at our age I would have preferred hahaha (it is supplied free in the common rooms along with wines, just means a walk to get it).

The rooms have good views (not great) due to the average height of the lower east side, the area is bustling and has a very cosmopolitan / european feel, plenty of eating places on offer, lots of bars, the down sides being its also very loud into the wee small hours, we did ask to be moved higher up for better views (and also to escape the noise we could still hear on the 10th floor) which was promised for us on the secon day onwards, but sadly it never happened, possibly the most disappointing for us personally, should need to constantly ask and remind reception room changes offered.

This aside it still made for a great trip, we never ate in house so cannot comment (was a high price, small portion bistro bar) on food, rest of the furnishings and surroundings once used to the dark were pleasant, the showers are great once you get past you realise people in the lounge and neighbouring buildings can wave at you (us English take a while to get used to things like that).

The real gems in this hotel have to be the doormen, they were friendly, efficient and really nice guys, we missed the lad who we had dealt with the most on our last day so were unable to thank him personally, but all of the doormen were the best I have ever stayed with.

The start of this review sounds like its going to be poor, but they really are the most negative things i could think of in the 4 days we were there, so trifling issues really, I would recommend it, I would stay there again, couldn't help but feel it was more suited to the under 30's but thats my opinion and probably not the hotel's intention.

One last comment on the beds, very low, very wide and what feels to be made of lead when you first 'touchdown' seconds later you start to sink into the previously rock hard mattress and gave me what can only be described as a sleep revelation, best bed ever, anywhere! Ended up ordering one when i got home.

Room Tip: Higher up is better if you want to sleep, sadly a new build nearby has robbed sone of the build look...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was in the perfect location for us (we love the Lower East Side), had an amazing room, was great value and had all the facilities we wanted. Also, room service and Co-op are fantastic value.

As long as you are happy to be in the LES you'd be a fool to stay anywhere else and that includes hotels like The Standard (where we stayed a couple of years ago which we enjoyed as much but paid about 3 times the amount for).

All round a fantastic place, we can't wait to return!

I really enjoyed staying at the on Rivington Hotel mostly because of the excellent service they had there. I appreciate the intimate welcoming at the door and joking around with the door guy Lester. It made me feel cozy right away. Also I loved that we got cookies every evening. The people treated you with a lot of respect there and made my stay extremely funny and great. Thanks a lot!

Room Tip: You should take a room with view to the upper manhattan it's just amazing!

Arrived late in evening into cave like nightclubby entrance, odour in lift, shabby reception and up to my 16th floor room that was very poorly lit! That said at dawn my 16th floor corner suite transformed into a very pleasant environment indeed. Although cramped, the floor to ceiling windows and spectacular views left me in no doubt as to my location. Comfortable beds, great bedlinen, very quiet, free wifi, helpful staff. If only the reception areas were sharper and fresher.Great value

Room Tip: Cant imagine how small the standard non corner suites are!

Hi Nick W! Thank you for your review here on TripAdvisor. We love to hear from Senior Contributors, your review is a valuable tool for us to improve. Glad to hear we redeemed ourselves in the morning and great to hear that you'd return and stay with us again. :) May I suggest a Unique Suite on your next visit as they are larger than the standard suites and offer some of the best views in the city.

We are just back from a trip to NYC where we stayed at The Hotel on Rivington for the sixth time! I guess that says it all about the hotel. There are many reasons that we stay at the hotel; its location (it's in the Lower East Side and walkable to Soho, TriBeCa, even Williamsburg), its staff (all super friendly and helpful) and its rooms (clean and spacious).

We're looking forward to visit number seven soon!
