“More facade than substance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

This meticulously restored hotel in the middle of the Soho district is charming, and inviting: the staff is punctilious and friendly, the ambiance cozy and comfortable. But there is a neglect of details that first-class hotels do not miss. For example, the bathroom sink does not drain properly; the toilet seat does not sit properly on the toilet bowl and the seat cover bumps into your back whenever you shift your weight (I discovered the hinge was broken); robes are provided, but no slippers; the thermostat was not reliable: we set it at one temperature and the room temperature fell below it in short order. The breakfast was good, but not cheap; even then, there were mistakes: my wife ordered granola and yoghurt with a side order of fruit; she received yoghurt and two servings of fruit.

In our room, we were greeted with a plate of complimentary cupcakes, which was nice, but it was accompanied by a personal welcome letter to "Mr. Carter" (we were not "Mr. Carter").

stayed here for business and chose the hotel because it was within the corporate budget and had the location i wanted. right on the bottom of soho, close to a myriad of restaurants and bars this place is all about location. the actual hotel is nothing to write home about - it has a 20s kind of decor and carries it quite ok but nothing too impressive. standard hotel room otherwise. i would recommend staying on the north side (uptown side) or a really high floor room because during the summer there is an open summer terrace on the downtown side that can generate quite the amount of noise

The entire staff has taken such great care of me over my last few stays. As a former NYC resident, I had wrongfully assumed their main function to be a "nice-mojitos-outside-in-summer" type-deal. As someone who now frequently has to drive to New York with oddly-sized art objects in tow, their courteous and quick valet system has made my life a lot easier. I also really like Room Service in general, and theirs is genuinely excellent (Beef Stroganoff! Thoughtful wine list!) When a friend of mine took an interest in the bathroom wallpaper, the conceirge was prepared to provide me with thorough, concise details about both the artist and the design firm behind its creation. There's also nothing like a friendly, attractive, appropriately-diligent person handing you a glass of sparkling rosé after a harrowing 6-hour drive. Oh yeah, and once I left some nail polish behind and got a personal phone call from their security staff asking if I needed it to be sent back to me. I mean, that's pretty nice. Thanks, Soho Grand!

Just spent 3 nights at the SoHo Grand. The room had a beautiful view of the Freedom Tower from our 15th floor room. It is well located off of Canal Street and West Broadway, so very walkable to check out all of the local SoHo sites and flavors. The hotel has a workout room, unfortunately the tv reception in the workout area did not allow for me to view tv while exercising.
The hotel had free wifi and a nice lounge. The staff was very friendly.

My daughter just landed her first job in New York and we were in Soho looking for a nearby apartment. The staff was friendly enough to inquire about our reason for our stay, and cheered us on as we went through the difficult process of finding a place in lower Manhattan. They celebrated with us when we secured a place, and were full of helpful local advice. We want to pass along our gratitude to Martin at the door (he represented the attitude of the Soho Grand perfectly, from the moment we pulled up!) And Daniel at the front desk made every effort to make our stay fun, stress-free and warm. He was fast and professional with our reservation and requests - while taking the time to make us feel so welcome! Emma is another gem. Like Daniel, she made us feel like we were valued friends. They even provided some congratulatory surprises in our room when we landed the right housing deal. I will be coming to visit my daughter in Greenwich Village for years to come, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I travel for a living - all over the world - and few hotels can match this quality of service.

Great hotel, perfect location if your in to the district of Soho and Nolita areas- millions of small shops, restaurants and bars around- just fab!
Super nice doorman- and very professional receptions staff- changed our room efficiently when we liked a higher floor. Rooms are on the small side- but this is NYC.. like the decor throughout the hotel- dimly lit and miles away from that cold contemporary thing some hotels got going now. Bar and lounge service is so so- seams understaffed and the girls working probably make enough tip without making much of a effort- if this would be adjusted- pretty perfect place. Did not use gym at all- so no comments.
Overall- love it - will definitely go back next time we are in NYC.
