“Style and comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Our 5 day stay at Bowery, a stylish boutique hotel, was perfect. Even though it is a budget hotel but there is no compromise with the facilities and hotel services. The hotel has a peaceful ambiance and the location is perfect for city explorations as main tourist attractions like the Brooklyn Bridge is quite close by. The Broadway is also quite close and we went there one evening. The staff was very warm and cooperative. They were always ready to shell out information and that helped us a lot during our city touring. They also provide net access without any extra charges, which was a very generous and guest friendly. We loved our stay at this lovely hotel and we would be returning back for sure.

Really enjoyed my stay here. The room was small but comfortable after an exhausting work day. Many great restaurants in the area.

A plus -- the private space at the Bowery is gorgeous! Capacity is 500 with indoor and outdoor space.

My friend and I booked a week's stay at The Bowery because of its East Village location where she had a few meetings during our stay and I was simply going to enjoy New York. The many good reviews on Tripadvisor were encouraging. First off, we were disappointed that the hotel do not do twin-bed rooms. On arrival, we were further disappointed with the size of the room. The hotel calls it Queen size, which is flowery language for a standard. Luckily, we are of slim to normal build. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom has no bath. First morning found us struggling to get the hot water going in the shower. We are both very well travelled and using hotel showers aren't new to us. Later that day, when it was explained to us we saw where we had gone wrong. It was simple really. We shouldn't have tried to turn the hot and cold dials. They were there for show only. What were we thinking?
The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. We had a cocktail or two in the fabulously decadent lounge bar. The Emma restaurant served great breakfasts (don't miss the blueberry pancakes) and a couple of meals taken there were not bad at all.
If you are coming from the UK and expecting tea/coffee making facility in the room - standard in many 3* plus hotels - for which you have paid a handsome price, you will be disappointed. However, there are some complimentary benefits including a welcome fresh fruit platter, two newspapers every morning and free Wifi.
The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring the East Village with its rich immigrant history, the lower east side, Chinatown, Little Italy and has several good cafes and restaurants in the neighbourhood. It is close to two subway stations for explorations further afield.
All in all a very pleasant stay despite initial hiccups.

Room Tip: My room on the 8th floor was facing a quiet side street but high enough to have a view of the lively...

Spent one night for work at The Bowery - beautifully laid out, exquisitely refined manner throughout the hotel. Staff are friendly and not pushy, while the rooms are a haven from the manic traffic of Bowery just outside. The bed itself is perfect - not too soft or too hard and the in-room entertainment (big screen TV and Jambox sound system) are superb. The bathroom was actually my favourite room with a big, hot shower and marble decor. As my trip was just for one night, I ordered room service - the burger was fantastic. Thankfully my employer has a corporate rate here so I'll be staying again when I go back to New York next month. Fantastic.

We wanted a room with real wow factor for the final few nights of our special New York holiday - so booked a Bowery King and specified a corner suite (as recommended by the reviews) many weeks in advance. We were subsequently really disappointed not to get a corner room - a real let down. We would have settled for a cheaper Bowery Queen if we'd have known the corner rooms were so scarce even with that much notice. Can't help thinking they should separate the corner rooms into a different category so as not to let people down - we would have paid to secure one.

Feeling let down about the room, I went to get a beer out of the mini-bar and they were ALL out of date! We subsequently went down to the lobby bar and discovered our favourite ever hotel bar. A great, comfortable, busy vibrant place with areas reserved for guests and fantastic drinks. Spent many happy hours in there in the following days.

Disregarding our expectations, the room was great. Feel we were needlessly let down as better planning or attention to detail would have avoided this - but a fun hotel and overall would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask them to confirm they have secured you a corner room well in advance, if you asked for one!

Cool Hotel, great staff, excellent beds, had a great room with an outside terrace.
Its what I would expect in Manhattan, it feels authentic and has been in the area for years.
Staff are all friendly and helpful not a lot of attitude from the staff.

Room Tip: rooms on the third floor

Once again had an extremely enjoyable stay here, this time in a corner suite which we can highly recommend. Though not cheap, the room and bathroom were both lovely, with the usual great windows and views. Helpful and friednly service as before. Still a favourite spot.
