We celebrated our 10-year anniversary with a two-night stay at the Bowery Hotel. Even though we were in the least-expensive room class (standard queen), the room was spacious, luxuriously appointed with a huge bathroom that had an incredible soaking tub, and we had two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. Pluses: the clientele was a bit older (40+) -- lots of Europeans, too. I was happy to be in a hotel with this mix, as I was concerned that my husband and I might feel a bit long in the tooth at such a hot boutique hotel. The staff was incredibly accommodating and courteous. Gemma, the hotel's restaurant, served a great breakfast at a reasonable price. The neighborhood is vibrant and hip -- still a little seedy, but we like that mix. The little cajun restaurant on Great Jones, across from the hotel, was cozy and delicious (and reasonable!). The minuses (not enough for me to give the hotel less than five stars, though): the neighborhood is noisy. Perhaps it was the windows (that I wouldn't want to do without!), but Bowery is a very busy thoroughfare, and the honking taxis seemed to be bustling into the wee (read 3 a.m.) hours of the night. Some people might want a fancier neighborhood, but we love the vibrancy of this area. Yes, the room was pricey ($495/night), but we could have spent the same money elsewhere in Manhattan and gotten a lot less. I'd highly recommend this hotel ... but selfishly I want to keep it a secret! ;o)
