The thing that impressed me the most about this hotel, was that the whole thing was a new build. It's been done so well, with such attention to detail and high level of finish. The location is really great too. I can remember the area being pretty much no go several years ago.
The hotel has these really charismatic doormen, in dapper waistcoats and bowler hats, who welcome guest. The reception area is a bit too close to the entrance and can create a bottle neck with guests checking in and checking out.
We had corner room, about half way up. Fantastic views. The rooms have a industrial, converted factory feel, as do the bathrooms. All the usual knick knacks are included, such as iPod dock and robes/slippers. The signature red and white bedding is very covetable.
The gym, in the basement, was ideal, but short on equipment if you happened to be there at a busy time.
The bar is open to anyone. It's tucked away behind a sea of antique looking sofas and armchairs. You feel like you are in a country pile. As guests, we just got a drink and sat down. A guy came over and demanded to see our door key card. Once we proved we were guests, he just turned and walked off. I called after him and asked if he'd like us to sit else where. He just shrugged and wandered off. It's odd how he thought that was an okay way to interact, given how charming and smiley all the other staff were.
I really enjoyed my few days at The Bowery Hotel, but there was nothing there to make me want to return.
