Returning to The Crosby Street Hotel for the first time in three years it was a reassuring pleasure to find it every bit as perfect as it was before! I expect that Firmdale hotels will not drop the ball when it comes to standards of decor, service and relaxation - but you can never be sure, so it was very reassuring to find that The Crosby Street still remains a welcoming and delightful touch of England in NYC!
Located in SoHo this was Firmdale's first expansion outside its native London and was also the first purpose-built hotel in the portfolio. This part of New York has become a trendy destination and certainly suffers less from sidewalk-overoad! Galleries, boutiques and designer shops plus individual restaurants and bars are neatly packed into traditional architecture it has less glitz than mid-town but is more relaxed and attractive for it.
And The Crosby Street fits perfectly into that vibe with ultra-helpful staff, a very knowledgeable team at the concierge desk, supremely comfortable rooms and an excellent bar-restaurant that is every bit as buzzy and bustling as a newly-opened celeb-destination all combine to make the hotel a great choice for aNew York City stay - whether for business or pleasure.
This visit was for the NYC Motor Show, so I had a small group in tow and this is another area where Firmdale excel - they go out of their way to make everyone in a group feel individually valued and responded fully and effectively to one of my guests who had a bit of an issue with their room. Without exception they were all converts by the end of the visit!
I hear that Firmdale are building a new, bigger hotel in New York and can't wait to see what that will be like - but it will have to be good to unseat The Crosby Street.
