The Bowery Hotel is stylish and grand without necessarily being a “scene.” Located on Bowery between 2nd and 3rd streets, it’s the ideal base for exploring Manhattan’s East Village, Lower East Side, NoHo, and SoHo. Curl up by the fire with a stiff drink in the hotel’s cozy, inviting lobby bar, or brush elbows with celebrities for a low-key brunch at one of the sidewalk tables lined up outside its restaurant, Gemma. The elegantly decorated rooms are well-appointed and yet, quirky; each bed is graced by the presence of a hotel teddy bear, Bo. The Bowery is a welcome respite between shopping and sightseeing in Lower Manhattan.

This gorgeous boutique hotel in the heart of Greenwich Village has bohemian roots; its history of housing transient writers and artists since 1900 influenced the redesign of the space in 2013. The rooms are small (and bathrooms even smaller), but luxurious details, such as faux-fur throws and gilded bed frames make it feel like a vintage gem less than a block from Washington Square Park.

The neighborhood was named SoHo because it is South of Houston St; the NoMo in NoMo Hotel stands for “Nostalgic and Modern.” Is there any better way to describe the hipster aesthetic? Rooms are a white-walled oasis of calm and serenity in one of the most tourist-heavy areas of Manhattan. By contrast, the graffitied NoMo Kitchen is a trendy hotspot for brunch.

Technically in Nolita (“North of Little Italy”), this ultra-modern hotel was designed for guests who appreciate form as much as function. Outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, cement spiral columns, and a sleek soaking tub separate from the bathroom, the guestrooms’ furniture have more mid-century flair. LA-based Eggslut chef, Alvin Cailan, opened his first NYC restaurant, The Usual, in the ground floor of The Nolitan in 2018.

Set on a quaint cobblestone street, the Crosby Street Hotel is as sophisticated as it is stylish. Not for those on a budget (prices start at $800), each guest room is uniquely designed and decorated so that no two are alike. The Fernando Botero sculpture of a giant cat on the sidewalk outside the lobby is not the only piece of art to find here; a sculpture garden in its courtyard can be enjoyed exclusively by guests of the hotel.

The High Line Hotel is not to be confused with the Standard High Line; while it is also named after lower Manhattan’s most popular park, that’s where the similarities end. The High Line Hotel is a gorgeous landmark brick building from the 1800s that wraps around its own private park and courtyard. It is truly a unique (and surprisingly affordable) experience to stay here: the hotel shares space with the Episcopal Church’s General Theological Seminary. Guest rooms feature vintage embossers and Western Electric rotary phones from the 1920s, evoking a stylish old-world feel in a super trendy neighborhood of New York.
