I just love The Bowery Hotel with its beautiful rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. In the north-facing rooms you can get glimpses of Empire State Building from the comfort of you bed and some terrace suites have the added perk of outdoor hot tubs. Try to book the upper-floor one-bedroom suites, they have the best views and sizable patios.
A super-hip bar tucked away in the nostalgic, velvet-filled art-deco inspired lobby, 24-hour room service, free Wi-Fi, and free bike rentals, the Bowery Hotel redefines class in a gentrified downtown neighbourhood where punk rock and squalor once ruled.
Walking distance from Soho, Nolita, and East Village.

Loft for rent in SoHo/Nolita
This is a fully-furnished but minimalist-looking loft space in a converted textile factory. The industrial character of the original space is retained while providing the comforts you’re used to at home–leather couch, comfortable bed, flatscreen with satellite, Wi-Fi. And unlike other buildings, the apartment has its own hot-water boiler, so you’re not going to run out of hot water in the shower, no matter when you want to use it.
The space can comfortably sleep 4; there’s a full-size bed, and the leather couch folds out into a full-size bed as well.
You have full access to everything in the apartment.
Use the enormous Map Wall to plan your day’s itinerary. The apartment is dead-center between SoHo, Nolita and Chinatown, so you can find cool stuff in every direction. I’ve covered the map in dry-erase coating, so I can mark whatever you need to find–ATMs, subway stations, good chow spots, Citibike stations, public bathrooms with no line, et cetera. Or you can mark it up yourself to plan routes and destinations of your own. Even if you have a bad sense of direction, I can provide clear directions to ensure you never get lost–and I’m always just a phone call or a knock away.
Leather couch and easy chair, for when you want to plop down in front of the flatscreen and watch satellite TV.
Price: fr. US$275 per night
The Carlyle has been a historic and discreet host to artists, presidents, and local and international celebrities since 1930, and it’s traditional to the core: White-gloved elevator operators, a special concierge vestibule, the classic Bemelman’s Bar, and dinner performances by Judy Collins and Woody Allen (playing jazz clarinet) are hallmarks of this classic American hotel.
You will definitely enjoy the apartment-style rooms which are bigger than many hotel rooms in New York and you will love the luxurious pillow-top beds with 450-thread-count sheets.
It has been voted as the Best Honeymoon Hotels in New York.
The Carlyle is located on Upper East Side, in a quiet, safe location near Central Park, the Met and Whitney museum.
