I just had to take a moment to send a review for this awesome hotel. My husband and I just returned from a 3 day trip to NYC (our first ever time going there) and we decided to stay at the Bowery Hotel to get a more 'neighborhood' feel for our trip instead of staying in the Times Square or Midtown Manhattan area. I am so glad we decided to stay here as it was one of the best hotels we have ever been to! When we arrived to the hotel we were early (10:30 AM) so they had no problems stowing our belongings until the room was ready. We booked a queen room and in the comments I requested a corner room with a view as some other viewers had mentioned. An hour later we were contacted to let us know we could check in. We received some helpful assistance in getting our bags to our room and I must say that I was so impressed with our room and my husband was also. The entire hotel decor is very old english library type. Lots of wood, clean lines and colors and very luxurious. Our bathroom was gigantic with a huge sunken tub and rain shower with lots of high-end toiletries. The bathrobes were very nice as was the cute teddy bear that every one has mentioned. Our view was gorgeous and with the floor to ceiling windows we really enjoyed the experience of viewing the city at night and during the day from our room. The turn down service with cookies and bath slippers was a very nice touch too. Also nice is the fact that room service and eating at the neighboring Gemma Restaurant is inclusive on your hotel account. We really appreciated that being there and enjoyed the restaurant immensely. Also nice is the evening drink service on the patio and lobby bar area. This was such a peaceful place to hang out and get an evening happy hour. I have to say that even though all of that was great, the staff themselves were the best part. The gentleman that run the door are very helpful and are always there should you have a question or need assistance. The desk staff are great too, I was able to e-mail my boarding passes for my return flight and within an hour they called me to let me know that they were printed out for me, which was very helpful. Also my husband hurt his back on our last night and one of the room service staff didn't hesitate bringing us a bucket of ice with some bags so he could have an icepack...WOW! All in all we had a wonderful time in NYC and a big part of that was staying at the Bowery Hotel. I know anytime we return to NYC we will stay there.
Make sure you ask for a corner room, it makes all the difference!
