If you want a hotel with its finger on the pulse of New York, Arlo SoHo can hardly be beat. This property in Lower Manhattan has all the hip style and tech savvy that has kept its city at the cutting edge, with kiosks in lieu of a front desk and pegboards in lieu of hangers in the rooms. Rooms clock in at a (cozy) 150 square feet, where every detail—from the pegboards (Arlo’s answer to the closet) to the walk-in showers—is meant to maximize the dimensions. But don’t spend too much time holing up: common spaces offer workspaces, charging stations and seating areas, plus a craft-cocktail bar in the lobby, to keep you mixing and mingling. Plus, there’s that exhilarating city outside. Buzzy restaurants, bars and boutiques are within walking distance, whether in aforementioned Soho—a world-renowned shopping capital—or neighboring Nolita and Little Italy. South of Hudson Square is Tribeca, the latest residential destination for some of the world’s biggest-name pop stars and movie stars, and the E train that stops two blocks away will get you to nearly any other part of the borough. Spend your days pounding the pavement, and after dark, choosing from the bounty of trendy local nightclubs and lounges throughout town. Although you may well prefer to retire to Arlo’s own rooftop bar, whose views extend all the way to New Jersey.
In the Area
Adjacent to Tribeca, Soho is home to a number of classic Manhattan institutions, like the New York City Fire Museum, and some up-and-coming city destinations (think low-key bars and restaurants). For cash splashing, the shopping in Soho is legendary, and New York’s biggest names are moving into Tribeca, if celebrity spotting is more your thing. Should you like to relocate to another part of town, the E train, which stops locally, will whisk you uptown or farther down and connect you to a variety of other lines to take you to other neighborhoods.
How to Get There
Great place. Short walk to shops and restaurants. Staff friendly and very helpful. The hotel goes out of its way to provide activities and "events" for guests. Also, lobby area and "library" room on second floor are great for lounging, reading, etc. Our 4th stay and there will be more visits.
Visiting my son in NYC who is a student at NYU. I have found my home base! Cozy, comfy rooms, great food and exceptional staff. In three short days I ate at Harold's five times. (The bowl with spinach, salmon, egg and avocado, is so good.) Now that's a true recommendation. Such easy access to the subway. Thanks Joe S. for all your help. I will be baaccckkk!
Had a great stay with my girlfriend at the Arlo hotel in SOHO. Staff was amazing and the location was perfect to get around the city. Close to the subway, shopping and attractions. Very cool hotel. Rooms are small but have everything you need and super comfy beds. Highly recommend.
This was the first time to NYC during New Years & we couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to stay! The Arlo, its staff and the management more than exceeded my expectations! From a hand written letter, and care package welcoming us to the Arlo!! Accommodations were spacious with amazing city views off the private balcony!! The restaurant offered an amazing menu and the breakfast was phenomenal!!! Im looking forward to my next trip to NYC and the Arlo is most definitely the hotel of choice!!!
We visited the Arlo after a recommendation from a friend and were not disappointed.
From our very first encounter with the front desk it was all positive, the greeting was warm a friendly and above all genuine!
We loved the casual contemporary atmosphere and quirky decor.
Yes the rooms are a little on the small side but this is New York, our bed was incredibly comfortable so much so that we prefer the same pillows for home. The staff and vibe more than made up for the room size and the location is great if you want to explore Soho and the surrounding areas. :)
