Best places to stay:

Last updated: 30 August, 2022

Tucked on a narrow, cobbled street moments from heaving lower Broadway and SoHo shopping, yet worlds away, this is a proverbial ‘hidden gem’.

It’s an arty, luxury hotel that oozes personality and attentiveness, with precious open-air spaces within, sprinklings of contemporary art pieces and vibrant décor to refresh tired schleppers. Rooms focus on sumptuous furniture and colourful details that make them simultaneously comfortable and invigorating, with views over the low-rise, post-industrial downtown architecture.

It’s close to the action, yet secluded from all the crazy, and walking distance to New York’s funkiest neighbourhoods, and many top attractions.

Surrounding area

Cobbled, quaint Crosby Street nurtures little treats – a locally-treasured independent bookshop, the off-site MoMa Design Store on the corner – and stays quiet until it bursts onto the main traffic-choked Houston Street thoroughfare.

SoHo’s shopping, strolling and bar-hopping is steps away, while the funkiest neighbourhoods are all a short walk.
