This Soho boutique hotel is a good blend of quirky decor and modern design, with a few homely touches. Located in the heart of the fashionable neighborhood, it is steps away from everything you look for when you stay in Soho: galleries, bars, restaurants and shops in cool surroundings. The in-house restaurant is lavish, busy and attracts locals who join guests in a cheerful atmosphere. We loved that rooms offer large windows, some with panoramic views of New York’s skyline. Many are decorated in white and vivid blue, with ultra-soft Frette linen and marble bathrooms that carry lovely Molton Brown amenities. If possible, stay in a  suite with a balcony, especially delightful when the weather is nice.
