I spent a few nights at Off Soho Suites and it was very comfortable and located in a convenient area for walking to many places. I also had a kitchen in my room, which made my trip cheaper because I didn't have to go out for food.
I went to NYC for a few nights to visit some friends, and decided to stay at the Off Soho Suites. It was perfect and I appreciate that it was well located and still has some of the feel of the village in the old days.
Just stayed here for the second time this month. The rooms are great an of an ample size, IT is close to just about everything. I would recommend bringing or buying your own coffee for the morning.
Unique Quality: close to subway and nightlife in the lower east side.
Directions: lower east side
If you are travelling with family or friends or would just prefer a little more space I can recommend the Off Soho Suites Hotel. Basically, apartments within a hotel setting. Ours was one-bedroom with two doubles and a double sofa-bed in the lounge/dining area. There was also a separate bathroom and kitchen. There were three in our group and there was more than enough space for us not to feel cramped.
Having a kitchen enabled us to stock up on goodies from the local delis and markets for snacks or breakfasts. The location is alongside Chinatown and Little Italy so was great for food shopping.
But, as well has having the space of an apartment we had the added convenience of a hotel, e.g. coffee shop, gym, security, ect. Setting was colourfull, just off the Bowery, but we had no problems even when returning home late. Spring Street subway is 5mins away and there are bus stops for uptown & downtown on the Bowery.
When we go back to NYC, we would stay here again.
Unique Quality: The neighbourhood is the key; Chinatown, Little Italy through to Soho.
As much as we loved the uptown shopping where many tourist hotels are, we were so glad we stayed here and got a real flavour of Manhatten. A stroll along the Bowery, takes in Chinese supermarkets, jewellers, lighting and catering stores. Everyday businesses without an eye on the tourist dollar.
Howver, Canal Street, at the end of the Bowery, with accurate fakes of bags and watches appears to be becoming a tourist attraction in its own right. Fascinating to watch the bartering, in between the vendors dodging the police, even if you're not buying. It is said that 90% of the worlds fake Rolexs come from Canal Street.
Directions: Off the Bowery; Chinatown/Little Italy.
