“Atmospheric venue in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

From before we arrived at the Bowery Hotel staff there had provided us with several recommendations for services in the area for our impending wedding; these all turned out to be first class. Throughout our stay we were treated with courtesy by all staff and nothing was a problem. When we booked the room we asked for a corner room on an upper floor which is exactly what we got. Our room had double full length windows providing great views; it was well equipped, extremely clean and comfortable. The bar and lobby area are very atmospheric and every day of our 5 day trip the place was buzzing. The waiting staff were all characters and very friendly. The restaurant attached to the hotel served very good and reasonably priced Italian food which probably accounted for the fact that it was very busy and again full of atmosphere. Do not be put off in the least by the close proximity of the Bowery Mission because we were treated with respect at all times by the various residents and visitors to that establishment that we came across. The area is well served by bars and restaurants, coffee shops etc and provides easy access on foot to a variety of great parts of town. We will definitely be back

Great part of town, staff welcoming and friendly. The bar/lounge is funky and being a guest is a little like being a VIP pushing past the crowds with priority access.

Bleeker St station is 250 metres away and can zoom you uptown or downtown with trains running every few minutes on the 6.

The rooms are nicely featured and the bed was very comfy.

My one regret was only eating breakfast on the last day at the hotel. It was the best breakfast in the 7 days we had been in NY.

Enjoy the Bowery

We stayed at The Bowery Hotel for two nights in February and what an amazing stay it was. We had a high floor, corner room meaning windows everywhere with amazing views. The staff is more than friendly and very helpful, the room was actually decent size for NYC. The lobby is the place to be at the hotel. Everyone hangs out in the lobby and it is more than beautiful, comfortable, and downright relaxing. Drank many glasses of champagne while discussing the day in that lobby. The restaurant, Gemma, is great as well. Dinner, lunch, and breakfast were incredible. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I will definately be back.

I have been a regular guest at The Bowery since 2008 and can happily say that it is consistently excellent and has remained throughout this time the best place to stay in the lower east-side. The design of the hotel is unique and exudes 1920s style. The rooms are very, very comfortable, well decorated and furnished, and also large for the rates that the hotel charges. The restaurant (Gemma) is also very good, particularly for brunch. Ignore the previous writers who have criticised the hotel regarding its policy on access to the lobby lounge. Once you stay at the hotel you will understand why a strict policy is required for non-hotel guests wandering in--the place would be overrun without it. And for the record, the staff are really nice too.

We love the Bowery Hotel. Above, I wrote "September, 2010" as my date of stay, but I'm not positive that's when I last stayed there. We've slept at the Bowery Hotel about a dozen nights a year for the past several years.

The rooms are beautiful in a stylish, tasteful, timeless way. The sheets are great, the assortment of tiny cookies they leave every night are delicious, the rooms are quiet. Some of the bathrooms have really awesome tubs with views of Lower Manhattan, but they all have wonderful showers and great lighting.

The service here is exactly what we expect from fancy hotels. Every member of the staff has been unfailingly friendly and helpful. Laundry is returned quickly, maid service is incredibly efficient yet invisible, room service is prompt, etc., etc.

We also adore the lounge area. It's true that the cocktails expensive. Of course they are! It's a very popular meeting spot in a 5 star hotel in New York City. Is it actually 5 star? I never pay attention to star numbers. It's certainly a very expensive New York City Hotel, so expect the cost of your cocktails to be representative.

Most weeknights and very late at night, the lounge/bar is elegant, yet super comfortable and relaxing, and the drinks are very good (I once received a disappointing Pimm's Cup, complained, and got an improved one immediately). At other times, the lounge can be crowded and a little crazy.

By the way, we're regular urban Adults who are not terrifically hip and stylish. I mention this because I noticed a few reviewers thought they were being discriminated against for being older or uncool or whatever.

Oh, and for the best coffee in Manhattan, go across the street!
