“Great location”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the HoR for one week and were very satisfied with our overall experience.
The big pros:
- really spacious and stylish rooms with great view (yes, you can see a big parking lot and industrial buildings but you are in Lower East Side in NYC and not in a national park with natural surroundings)
- really nice bathroom ( the walk-in-shower with city view and the spacious tub were highly appreciated- especially in winter I very much recommend the hot tub)
- nice details in the room such as candles in the bathroom for a candle light bath and funny things from an adult store on Rivington Street and a variety of drinks in the mini bar
- very kind and helpful staff that met our expectations even in difficult situations (we asked for a room change from our booked King Corner Room to a room with a tub and they did their best to meet our request. They sent someone to help us with our luggage that we didn't have to pack and unpack everything again; three days later I recognised that I left my jewellery in the former room which was now given to other guests and asked at reception if the new guests or housekeeping found it. The next day I got everything back with a kind note from housekeeping)
- THE LOCATION: you can go out at night for dinner, drinks or clubbing by foot and have lots of great places to choose from, chinatown is in walking distance and Williamsburg is only a one metro station distance. We even walked to SoHo, West Village and Rockefeller Center. A very nice walk is to downtown crossing the Brooklyn Bridge and walking along the river back to the hotel crossing Williamsburg Bridge what will take about 1,5 hours (not too sure because we stopped very often for pictures or coffee breaks)

Only con we encountered:
- it took them ages before we could check- in our room

Last note: forget the popular Katz' Deli (which is just around the corner): too crowded and expensive for what you get. Try MightyQuinns Barbeque in East Village (10 mins walking distance): best briskets and side dishes (spectacular mashed sweet potatoes) and tab beer

Thanks HoR for a great week in NYC- we will come back for sure!

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Hi Stephfrommunich! Thank you so much for your excellent review here on TripAdvisor. I loved hearing about your stay and am very happy that you and your boyfriend enjoyed the experience. The Lower East Side is a great place to visit with all the amazing food, nightlife and galleries but also because of the people! It is so diverse and caters to locals travelers from all over the world.
It's too bad you had to wait for your room, our check-in time is guaranteed for 4pm, although normally we can get our guest's situated prior to that. Glad that you enjoyed the room!

We look forward to welcoming you back anytime!

All the Best,
Adam

We travelled from London to spend time with our son who lives in Dumbo (Brooklyn). We had a fantastic stay. When we arrived we were a bit dubious as the front of hotel is not marvellous but we went to reception and were greeted by friendly, smiling, happy staff who couldn't do enough for us. Invited to have coffee or wine in their super lounge. Went up to our room on 15th floor and were so happy with our room. Huge by NY standards, clean, huge bed. Ok, the view was a bit tatty but who goes to NY for the room view. Had dinner in restaurant with our son that evening and it was delicious with very fast service. The breakfasts were good, too, but the morning service was slow compared to the dinner service. The subway was half a block away which, in 2 stops took us to York St in Dumbo. Everything was perfect (except for the rain). Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We had a king room high floor which was very good

Wow. What a letdown. I paid top dollar for a room with a deep tub and a view. I got the tub, but a crappy view. In a hotel with 20 floors, I got floor 9. I'm staring at a parking lot. For over $500 a night! Yes, I booked it last minute. But if a room with a view is unavailable, don't charge me for a room with a view. Big disappointment.

Hello BFreedom, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. TripAdvisor reviews help us to strive for perfection and unfortunately I guess we missed the mark during your stay. Although it is true that last minute reservations make it difficult to provide specific floors, our 9th floor rooms are above the surrounding the buildings.
Please contact me directly if you choose to stay with us in the future and I will personally make sure you have an amazing and satisfying experience.

All the Best,
Adam

I have never experienced a staff that is more concerned and attentive to the guests needs. The upgraded soaking tub/steam shower bathroom was amazing. The most comfortable bed my husband and I have ever slept in. We were there for a weekend getaway to NYC and we live only 45 min from the city but it truly felt like a vacation. Thank you to all the staff members for making it a fantastic getaway

Room Tip: recommend upgrade to soaking tub and steam room shower. it's fantastic

Access to the LES is its great attribute, everything close by, including Brooklyn via the Williamsburg Bridge nearby.Don't overlook Brooklyn some great spots for drinking and dining there. As noted the decor is a little dated but all is very clean, and comfortable. Firm huge bed is great. Bathrooms are spacious, clean and modern. Elevators are fast.
I would be remiss not to mention the people, after all places are made or unmade by the people who run it. The staff, ALL of them, are exceptionally friendly, helpful and genuine, (not always the case in NYC). The most helpful are the guys at the front door, they will call for your cab, give you directions and in general are very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Lester and Jerry who were great at making our connections effortless.
Overall a great place to stay while exploring lower Manhattan, which, in itself, is one of the most interesting parts of the city.

Room Tip: If a view is important to you ask for it.

Super hotel. Very romantic soft rooms. Absolutely unbelievable bed. Great complimentary afternoon wine in the lounge with pool table. Very friendly service. Co-Op the restaurant downstairs was very nice and made room service actually worth considering. By far the best Soho/LES option. Go for a high floor corner king.

Room Tip: Upper floor. Corner king.

The LES location of Rivington is excellent: a short walk to Katz's and all the off the beaten track fun you can handle! I expect the hotel was at the height of fashion when it opened but is a little dated now and in need of a touch up. Nonetheless, beds super comfortable, enormous black bathtubs great for a soak and the downstairs bar/restaurant is great. Plus everyone who works there is achingly beautiful. Which helps.
