You're in good company here at the Bowery Hotel. Notable guests have included JLo, Liv Tyler, Sting, Keith Richards, Bruce Willis, Kiefer Sutherland and is referenced musically more than once. The building holds a musical gravitas and is responsible for some housing multiple artists while they have created some of their best work. Just watch out for the paparazzi on your way out.
Now, time for a quote from Theodore Roosevelt - “The Bowery is one of the great highways of humanity, a highway of seething life, of varied interest, of fun, of work, of sordid and terrible tragedy; and it is haunted by demons as evil as any that stalk through the pages of the “Inferno.” If only old Teddy could see The Bowery now (and possibly explain gentrification while we're at it) he would be faced with a trendy neighbourhood, thriving with legitimate business without losing that sense of “fun”.
The Bowery Hotel is located at the intersection of the Lower East Side and East Village. The recently renovated hotel appears opulent and timeless, suited for the Upper East Side if not cities of Europe. However, you may still find a few nods to the neighbourhood’s punk rock heritage.
Each room at this boutique hotel features floor-to-ceiling windows and city views. Industrial design is paired with residential loft-style elements like hardwood floors, Oushak rugs and 400 thread count bedding. Every room also has a marble bathroom with rain showers, plush towels and luxury C.O. Bigelow bath amenities. The Bowery Hotel staff are always posed for your assistance, and bicycle rentals are complimentary, as are newspapers, laptops and iPads upon request.
