Fodor's Expert Review Sister City

225 Bowery, New York, New York, 10002, USA

In a refurbished tenement building, this minimalist hotel from the owners of the exceedingly hip Ace Hotels brand describes itself as an “experiment in essentialism” with a focus on the budget traveler. The Scandinavian design aesthetic suits the concept perfectly, so although the rooms are small and without frills, there are enough tucked-away spots to stash your clothes and hang your jacket. As expected, the public spaces attract a fashionable young crowd.

PROS

  • uber cool rooftop bar, Last Light, with killer views
  • Floret, the all-day café on the ground floor
  • great location for downtown shopping and dining

CONS

  • design can seem a bit too bare
  • Last Light can get too cool for school
  • far from Midtown tourist sights
