The New York Times review said that the Bowery Hotel evokes ‘the Gilded Age of red waistcoats, hand-set bricks and wood-panelled elevators', and indeed the Hotel seduces with the cosy, intimate style dear to its creator Sean McPherson.
The public areas are warm, with wooded walls replete with familiar hunting scenes, a wide fireplace in the bar room, sofas, club chairs, and mismatched armchairs, as well as Oriental rugs of all kinds. Rooms and suites are spacious, and all enjoy stylish decor and large beds with high quality linen. The French bay windows stretch from floor to ceiling and offer breath-taking views of the East Village and southern New York.
The Bowery Hotel offers free bicycles for guests, the best means of transportation to explore the Lower East Side. At nightfall, models, traders, and bearded hipsters in plaid shirts coming straight from Willamsburg on their fixies (fixed-gear bikes) flock here to sip a cocktail before tasting the pizza at Gemma, the Italian restaurant in the hotel. Call to reserve for the bar if you are not staying at the hotel because entry is restricted to customers of the establishment and New York VIPs on some nights.
