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
The Arlo Soho is located outside the "regular" business areas of NYC (midtown or financial district). But, it is a welcoming hotel, affordable, located in a nice and quiet environment. Close to the 1 and A, C, E lines (on Canal st.), and the west side highway, and therefore easy to get from it either up or downtown.
Getting to it from Newark is very easy.
The hotel is renovated, room is fairly small but very clean. The lobby, rooftop, and business meeting rooms on the second floor make it ideal to conduct business meetings.
Very good breakfast. A nice 24h convenience corner.
Great staff. Welcoming, informative.
My favorite hotel in NYC as of now !
On the edge of soho, tons of restaurants nearby, and close to tribeca dining too. Funky and fun hotel lobby, lots of different seating, places to plug in and work on laptop, funky tents and picnic tables outside, very cool. We came for a family trip but I would have liked this place as a business hotel too. Rooms are super small. Kept bumping our knees into the wooden platform beds, the space was so tight. We got a room with a terrace and it made it a little less claustrophobic. Nevertheless it is efficient and clean. They make great use of the space, the safe was rolled under the bed. We didn’t come to nyc to hang out in a hotel room anyway so all good. They have a mini Dylan’s candy bar and the teens with us liked that. They also have a 24/7 market that sells a variety of fresh food, salads, snacks and drinks - Very comvenient. Lastly The rooftop bar has amazing views and it’s worth having a drink up there. Overall highly recommend.
We were a group of three photographers/videographers in town for one night for some video work, and we could not have been happier. Though the room wasn't big enough for the three of us, we knew that going in, but we were blown away by beautiful patio space we had. You can't beat an outdoor shower and a view of the Manhattan skyline. The lobby was constantly filled with other creatives doing work or socializing, and it was overall a great vibe. I will be coming back again soon. Awesome place to stay in New York, as it adds another dimension to your stay. Felt like home.
As an aside this hotel is probably not the best for first timers to NYC. However for anyone else I could not recommend this hotel highly enough. The decor was beautiful, the lobby smelled incredible which is not a comment I usually make regarding hotels. The staff were friendly and the amenities provided were excellent. The rooms are cosy and modern (however a coffee machine would not have gone a miss). I found the staff to be extremely helpful (I ordered towels to be delivered to the room from the front desk and they somehow arrived before me). Location is very good with so many doing options in Soho (however traffic is very loud being opposite to the Holland Tunnel), and Canal Street subway is very good. I would certainly stay here again when in NYC.
I love Arlo Soho, the location can not be beat!! The lobby is cool, it has a little coffee shop and mini Dylans candy bar and plenty of places to chill/ work if you need to. The staff is friendly and accommodating ! Shout out to Lindsey who always goes above and beyond (I had a huge balloon order delivered and also left something in my room when I checked out) she makes it all happen!
The room is smaller but for the price it is perfect. It has everything you need. The bed is comfy and water pressure is amazing in the shower.
PS they have a cool roof top!
100% recommend this hotel!
