Travel Blogs from New York City
Our last full day in New York *sniff sniff*. We started off by going on the Bronx tour, which was part of the hop on hop off service. Wow - what turn of events! We were only on the bus for about 3 minutes when a lady on our bus got shot in the neck with a BB gun!! At first we didn't know what had happened, but our bus had seemed to stop for quite a while. We were sitting in the back row of the bus, and turned and had a look, and there were police cars and ambulances half way ...
Today is our last day in New York, so we decided to pack as much in as we could. It was a cool morning, the coolest so far at about 15 degrees. So I knocked out a hangover busting 6km first thing. We then caught the water taxi service from near our apartment around to under the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn side. We walked up the hill to the bridge and walked all the way across it. The engineering was amazing and the view spectacular. When we got back to the Manhattan side, ...

On a nice crisp morning in NYC I went for a walk and found an Australian coffee shop! Little Collins on Lexington Ave was like an oasis of fabulousness in a city of ****, large vats of brown water trying to call themselves coffee. 2 large skim flat whites and an avocado ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bowery Hotel New York City
We booked through the hotel website due to the "soft opening" of this Brand New Hotel. But this hotel is going to be great once the restaurant opens. Our room was not available at 3pm because we requested a tub (note that not all rooms have tubs). The tubs are luxury soaking tubs by Waterworks, as are all the plumbing fixtures in the completely old-world marble bathrooms. The manager bought us drinks at the bar off the lobby while we waited near the fireplace and read a magazine. Saw several low-key "big names" coming in and out -- so apparently the word is already out about this great find.
This 135-room hotel felt authentic, not at all bland, like boring chain hotels. The Bowery's handsome lobby felt old-world decorated with Moroccan tiles and Oriental rugs. Loved the floor to ceiling factory windows in my room which provided a great view outside and gave the illusion of of being bigger. My home away from home was quiet, bright and beautiful.
Very Cool Hotel!
Just got back from a two night stay at the Bowery Hotel for business. I have to say that I love the decor of the hotel. It feels like you just stumbled off the hectic streets of Manhattan into a relaxing scene straight out of the Ethan Allen Hemmingway Collection Catalog. You feel like you are in an exotic location with dark wood bookcases and leather furniture in a cozy lobby. The rooms are wonderful with the same tropical decor (dark wood fans) and a huge marble bath tub with a window view of the city.
I'd definitely stay at this hotel again because it is a pleasant change from the uber-hip sterile hotels that have become so common these days.
Had a wonderful stay at The Bowery Hotel with girlfriend (2 nights during Easter). Altogether a great hotel: stylish and beautiful room (stayed in room 811), spacious bed and bathroom (esp considering NY), wonderful lobby for hanging out, and nice/relaxed staff.
The Bowery is Amazing
The Bowery Hotel is a wonderful hotel in a great location, Our room (901) was spacious and had a great view out of both floor to ceiling windows. Friendly staff, clean and central it is a great place to stay, However I believe the rates are going to increase dramatically once it has opened officially later in the year. At the moment there is no restaurant and the the terrace isn't open. Still, I highly recommend it.
El Bowery es asombroso.
El hotel de Bowery es un hotel maravilloso en una excelente ubicación. Nuestra habitación (901) era espaciosa y tenía una gran vista desde ambas ventanas desde el techo al suelo. El personal es simpático, es limpio y céntrico, es un estupendo sitio para alojarse. No obstante, creo que las tarifas van a aumentarlo dramáticamente cuando haya abierto oficialmente más adelante este año. Por el momento no hay restaurante y la terraza no está abierta. No obstante, lo recomiendo mucho.
Le Bowery est fantastique
Le Bowery Hotel est un magnifique hôtel très bien situé. Notre chambre (901) était spacieuse et avait une superbe vue grâce aux fenêtres du sol au plafond. Le personnel est sympathique, l'hôtel est propre et central,c'est un bel endroit. Mais je crois que les prix vont augmenter drastiquement une fois qu'ils auront ouvert officiellement plus tard dans l'année. Pour le moment il n'y a pas de restaurant, et la terrasse n'est pas ouverte. Enfin, je le conseille fortement.
I was a bit worried about staying at the Bowery given the location and the reputation of the area. However, those concerns were unfounded. The hotel is fantastic. The rooms are really amazing for the money and the common areas, while dark, have a great vibe. The fireplace and lobby bar are real gems. Drink prices are steep ($20 for a beer and Gin and Tonic), but that's New York. Another bar/club is being constructed on the second floor, but it is not yet open.
We stayed in the Bowery Hotel for 5 nights and thought it was fantastic. We were in a corner room and the view was breathtaking. - floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides of the room. The huge windows continued into the bathroom so the place was bright and beautiful. Bath was lovely and great shampoo, soap etc
I just returned from a two-night stay at the beautiful new Bowery Hotel and highly recommend it. After searching and searching for something romantic and unique in NYC that would not break the bank, I can say with certainty that we found it. This is a boutique hotel with a unique feel - as though you were staying in an old (but very updated and clean) mansion.
