“Hip and Smart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

The Bowery Hotel is a relatively new hotel in the hip section of Lower East Side/Bowery.
We celebrated there our wedding anniversary and the staff could not have been nicer.
We loved the bar and the adjacent restaurant Gemma (great food).
Many outstanding restaurants can also be found in the neighborhood (walking distance)
A rare find

Not only is this hotel situated right beside where the legendary CBGB used to be, it has the authentic lower East Side vibe to boot. The cozy feel blends cocktail bar with jazz lounge . The rooms are very comfortable and if you have higher floors you'll be in for a treat. The service is exceptional and the food equally amazing. It is also a great place to celebrity spot.

I visited The Bowery Hotel in conjunction with a wedding. The rooms as well as hotel was well appointed and charming. Hotel staff was very courteous. Hotel has a vintage feel, but is only 7 years old.

We stayed 6 nights at The Bowery. We had very clean, spacious bedroom. Staff was very friendly + location is great close to centre. Lovely breakfast. What more you could ask for? Would recommend to anyone.

I stayed four nights at The Bowery and loved my time there. The hotel is so charming, you would think it has been there since the 1940's yet no funky smell!! The hotel is only 7 yrs old, but has charm oozing!
It's a pet friendly hotel, brought my two dogs, and the 24 hr room service rocks. Best part of my stay, we would wind up the evening with a drink in hotel
Bar / Lobby where Mario greets the guests & makes everyone feel special.
Great location , lots of restaurants in walking distance, and cute shops.

The location was perfect for us. Just a couple of blocks from Soho and the East Village, moving around was really easy. The main room was so interesting with the last century style furniture, low lights, rubbed wood and fireplaces. It was dark, romantic and cool in the summer heat. They were also so nice to provide seating in the restaurant and main lobby for hotel guest during peak hours. The rooms were a bit of a disappointment. I'm not sure what they are going for with the silly teddy bear and the aged woolen blanket on the bed. It just felt used and second hand. The tall ceilings with wooden panels were nice and the bathrooms five star marble and tile. It is very expensive. A little pricey at 455 a night before taxes, but I suppose it's the location. The Standard down the street seemed to have a huge nightlife crowd. The Bowerys restaurant was really good.

My only previous time in NYC I stayed in Mid-Town (business), and I have to say that I saw the scale and the greatness of New York up there, but opting to stay downtown really opened my eyes to the spirit and history of the city. The long history of the this city is much more evident in the crooked streets, old buildings and varied scenery of the Lower East Side, Greenwich Village, etc.The neighborhood has so many young people, so many accessible restaurants and bars, and numerous public spaces used to great effect.

That introduction to the area around the Bowery Hotel is my way of suggesting the primary reason for staying at this hotel - location. The location is not for everyone, but we were very happy with it. After you pick this hotel for its location, you will be quite pleased with the wonderfully textured neo-olde worlde charm of the hotel, with its lobby bar and its terrace facing a 19th Century cemetery in the middle of the block. You will also enjoy the personal scale of a 130-room hotel that is not set amidst giant skyscrapers. The restaurant is just fine, with breakfast a good bit cheaper than found at most midwestern business hotels. The rooms are charming and big enough, if you are used to urban travel (Europe, etc.)

The service level of the hotel, along with the location, stands out. The doormen are very welcoming and the front desk is ready to help with anything. The host of the lobby bar was almost too eager to make sure we were comfortable. A couple of stand-outs on the service front. When we would call for something to be sent up (pillows, etc.), the person who took the call would follow up later to confirm that our request was delivered. And even after we checked out, we were treated as valued guests. We thought we left some items in the room and called from the airport. Security promptly checked the room, checked with housekeeping, even checked the garbage (!) before calling us back to confirm that we had not left the item (which we found in our luggage a few hours later.) Bravo!
