This was my 2nd time staying at this hotel, for the rest of my family, it was their first. I was very happy the first time and was hoping for another great experience. I was not disappointed ;)
I did a lot of research before this particular trip and being that we were travelling on the Canadian March Break, everything was expensive. Sohotel however, had very reasonable rates compared to the rest I looked and since I had already stayed here before, it was an easy choice to come back to.
No, the rooms aren't big (NOTHING in NYC is big in terms of size, except maybe the buildings themselves), but our family of 4 stayed in the family room with the 3 beds and it was perfect for us. We weren't there to do cartwheels in the room nor did we spend much time in the room, but the time spent was nice and comfortable. The staff all around are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. An elevator would be nice BUT the staff make the best of it by making sure to have a door man and bell man ready at all times to help with luggage and other things. Parking on site would be nice too but at least the parking was close enough that it wasn't inconvenient. The price to park however isn't so much fun but this isn't the hotel's issue. It cost us 40 plus to park per day which I find outrageous but I guess it's about on par with everything else in NYC, nothing is "cheap".
I had forgotten a toothbrush, front desk provided one. The room above us was making a huge racket the first night and at 2:30 AM I finally had to go and say something. The staff took care of it which I was thankful for. You're going to hear street noise, it's NYC...sirens and horns are normal here, but it was nothing that kept us awake. Beds were comfy, lots of pillows provided, room cleaned and stocked daily and wifi worked well everywhere.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay here again sometime. The location is great (Canal Street and China Town are right around the corner) and subway stops just a block away.
Also, if you're looking for a great place to eat and appreciate Italian food, try Lasso. We stumbled upon it our first night and out of 4 nights in NYC, we ate there 3 times. The food and service there were fantastic too.
Thanks Sohotel for another great stay!
