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
One of the best and hippest hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world. Great staff (big shout to the helpfully Richard and Danny for travel tips etc). Very beautiful people here and such warmth from guests and staff. Amazing roof garden and amazing happy hour!! LOVE IT.wanto come back soon from Somerst, UK. Great food, especially the wings and such a great hip location.
Nice place friendly staff. Great location in Soho. Rooms are comfy but on the small side. We stayed on a Saturday night and parking is free on street. They sent up a complementary bottle of wine and some cookies, I thought was a nice touch.
I stayed at the Arlo Soho for a couple of nights in October. Front desk staff was super friendly and very helpful. Rooms are not huge but well designed. Location is great - a few minutes to the water and great to explore downtown by foot.
