Highs & Lows

  • I stayed in a sleek and minimal designed king suite terrace. Spacious! Quiet! Amazing city views via the private outdoor terrace. PS Get your room service on -- there’s two lounge chairs and a table outside.

  • There were two LCD flat-screen TVs…?! One in the bedroom, and another directly on the other side like eight steps away in the living room. Unnecessary but awesome!

  • A big bath!

  • Cool designs. Loved the industrial-ish lights in the bedroom. Loved the funky albeit comfy furniture. Loved the natural light during the day. Even loved the glowing headboard -- thought it would keep me up at night, but super calming.

  • The bed, while big, was a bit too hard for me. Great pillows and comforter/sheets though.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Hip contemporary hotel in the heart of Lower East Side.

  • Vibe

    Young-ish, hip.

  • Location

    Heart of Lower East Side.

  • Rooms

    141

  • Music

    Yeah, I heard indie jams -- in the elevator, in the lobby, outside in the front of the hotel. But not offensively loud.

  • Year Opened

    2006

  • Designed By

    Seems like a lot were involved. According to their site, Lee Friedlander made those (really cool and somehow calming) glowing bed headboards; Jim Walrod was the man behind the interior design elements.

  • Health & Wellness

    Yes. And the *guest only* pool is always quite the *cool kid* destination in the summer. Very Instagram-friendly. See also: Andy Warhol’s visage looks up from the pool’s bottom.

  • Restaurant

    Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya. It was too crowded (Friday night) and I’m broke, so I opted for a Vietnamese hole-in-the-wall.

  • Bar

    Yes, the very popular rooftop bar AKA Tiki Tabu replete with “tongue-in-cheek tropical flair” and “lush tropical plants” etc etc. TT host tons of fashion-y parties and book cool DJ’s.

  • Minibar

    Popchips, Clif bars, bacon popcorn. (Also, a designer condom.) Then there’s alcohol, vitamin waters, etc. But it’s all about the can of RISE Nitro cold brew coffee. So strong, so good.

  • Children

    No please.

  • Price

    What you’d expect from a modern and luxe LES-located hotel. (Expensive.)
