“This place is definately worth a visit”
Reviewed 14 March 2011

Great part of town, staff welcoming and friendly. The bar/lounge is funky and being a guest is a little like being a VIP pushing past the crowds with priority access.

Bleeker St station is 250 metres away and can zoom you uptown or downtown with trains running every few minutes on the 6.

The rooms are nicely featured and the bed was very comfy.

My one regret was only eating breakfast on the last day at the hotel. It was the best breakfast in the 7 days we had been in NY.

Enjoy the Bowery

We stayed at The Bowery Hotel for two nights in February and what an amazing stay it was. We had a high floor, corner room meaning windows everywhere with amazing views. The staff is more than friendly and very helpful, the room was actually decent size for NYC. The lobby is the place to be at the hotel. Everyone hangs out in the lobby and it is more than beautiful, comfortable, and downright relaxing. Drank many glasses of champagne while discussing the day in that lobby. The restaurant, Gemma, is great as well. Dinner, lunch, and breakfast were incredible. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I will definately be back.

I have been a regular guest at The Bowery since 2008 and can happily say that it is consistently excellent and has remained throughout this time the best place to stay in the lower east-side. The design of the hotel is unique and exudes 1920s style. The rooms are very, very comfortable, well decorated and furnished, and also large for the rates that the hotel charges. The restaurant (Gemma) is also very good, particularly for brunch. Ignore the previous writers who have criticised the hotel regarding its policy on access to the lobby lounge. Once you stay at the hotel you will understand why a strict policy is required for non-hotel guests wandering in--the place would be overrun without it. And for the record, the staff are really nice too.

We love the Bowery Hotel. Above, I wrote "September, 2010" as my date of stay, but I'm not positive that's when I last stayed there. We've slept at the Bowery Hotel about a dozen nights a year for the past several years.

The rooms are beautiful in a stylish, tasteful, timeless way. The sheets are great, the assortment of tiny cookies they leave every night are delicious, the rooms are quiet. Some of the bathrooms have really awesome tubs with views of Lower Manhattan, but they all have wonderful showers and great lighting.

The service here is exactly what we expect from fancy hotels. Every member of the staff has been unfailingly friendly and helpful. Laundry is returned quickly, maid service is incredibly efficient yet invisible, room service is prompt, etc., etc.

We also adore the lounge area. It's true that the cocktails expensive. Of course they are! It's a very popular meeting spot in a 5 star hotel in New York City. Is it actually 5 star? I never pay attention to star numbers. It's certainly a very expensive New York City Hotel, so expect the cost of your cocktails to be representative.

Most weeknights and very late at night, the lounge/bar is elegant, yet super comfortable and relaxing, and the drinks are very good (I once received a disappointing Pimm's Cup, complained, and got an improved one immediately). At other times, the lounge can be crowded and a little crazy.

By the way, we're regular urban Adults who are not terrifically hip and stylish. I mention this because I noticed a few reviewers thought they were being discriminated against for being older or uncool or whatever.

Oh, and for the best coffee in Manhattan, go across the street!

I've never written a review of any of my many stays at The Bowery Hotel...I think perhaps it was because I didn't want to be responsible for any more visitors...I wanted it all to myself! It is, without question, my favorite hotel in the world. But instead of another glowing review, I write only to respond to those NON-GUESTS who have besmirched the Bowery's good name because they were turned away from the bar or the lobby even though there were seats available. If you are considering staying here, then you should REJOICE about this policy. The hotel lobby and bar are gorgeous--every detail is perfect. I think this is the only hotel lobby that I have ever wanted to actually spend time in, as opposed to rushing out to go eat and drink somewhere else. The first thing I always do after checking in, is to head down to the lobby or the terrace and wind down from my travel. And, every visit, I am overwhelmingly grateful to the hotel for doing their best to ensure that there is always room for me to sit down and enjoy the public areas instead of losing my seat to the hordes of people who would want to hang out there or who want to stalk the celebrity who is just trying to enjoy a quiet pot of tea by the fire. I don't care if the policy seems elitist or snobby. It's merely a policy meant to ensure an inviting atmosphere for those of us who have discovered the best hotel in the world and actually want to enjoy our stay there. THANK YOU, Bowery Hotel, for not turning your gorgeous hotel lobby into just the latest "hot spot" and ruining it for those of us who cherish what you've done with the place.
