Crosby Street Hotel
What We Love
- Sinking into a deep sofa in front of the fireplace to while away a winter afternoon in the drawing room
- Sipping Champagne in the guests-only courtyard on a sunny afternoon
- The Sunday night film club events held in the hotel's own screening room
What To Know
- Pets are very welcome
- The gym isn't huge but it's well-equipped and open 24 hours
- The hotel comes from British hotel darlings Tim and Kit Kemp so there's a UK vibe, as evidenced in things like afternoon tea
- Free WiFi
We can’t get enough of the cheery, colorful décor at Crosby Street. Add in warehouse-style windows and lofty ceilings and it’s an Instagrammer’s dream. Flooded with natural light, the rooms feel spacious and warm (and there are blackout curtains for long lie-ins). Kit Kemp’s beloved bright colors and patterns are deployed thoughtfully, and the whole effect, paired with cozy chairs and marble and granite bathrooms, will put a smile on your face. The public areas (some, like the drawing room and courtyard, are only open to guests) are similarly attractive and the Crosby Bar is open all day and turns out excellent breakfasts and comfort food like cheddar mac and cheese and Wagyu beef sliders that pair well with the hotel’s signature cocktails. We’re partial to the Frostbite, a stimulating combo of vodka, Cointreau, cinnamon sugar, lemon and egg white.
In the Area
Bloomie’s or Balthazar? Both are just a minute from the hotel, which has a prime spot on one of Soho’s cobblestone streets and is a stone’s throw from the city’s best dining and shopping. The impossibly trendy but still delightful Jack’s Wife Freda, with its menu of vegetable-forward dishes and comfort food like waffles and fries, is ideal for breakfast or brunch, though lines form quickly. Walk it off afterwards with a stroll through Washington Square Park, followed by perusing the quirky boutiques of Greenwich Village. A six-minute stroll from the hotel, The New Museum is a must-visit (and it’s so close there’s really no excuse). This contemporary art mecca is always stimulating and provocative; you’ll be thinking about what you saw for the rest of the day. Want to go further afield? There’s a subway stop two blocks from the hotel.
How to Get There
We stayed here in late May on a Memorial Day package and had an amazing time. The hotel restaurant served us wonderful food (I love the grilled octopus and the corned beef hash). The hotel staff made everything super easy and convenient. This is our third visit to the Hotel and it continues to be completely easy going while serving beautiful interiors, excellent amenities (gym, drawing room), and excellent food in a great neighborhood. Thank you again!!
This is approaching the tenth time we have stayed at the Crosby Street Hotel. My wife just refuses to go elsewhere. The amazing art and decor imbue the stay with a serene quality that is tough to beat. The additional (payment required) 2 hour art tour (lead by the delightful Liora) of the hotel's art collection and two galleries in Chelsea was a special treat.
My partner Lori and I would like to extend a huge thank you to all the staff of the Crosby Street Hotel in Soho NYC, from the very friendly and helpful door staff who can conjure up a taxi at a minutes notice to the front desk reception and concierge service right through to the waiting on staff in the restaurant and the maid services, nothing is to much trouble in making your stay memorable. This must be the finest boutique hotel in the whole of New York the service throughout is impeccable and attentive without being intrusive. The decor in the public areas as well as the individual bedrooms exudes quality and a wonderfully relaxed ambience permeates the whole of the building. The food in the restaurant is to a high standard the menu although at first glance seems limited belies the fact it can be tweaked to individual tastes and expanded to accommodate the fussiest of diners. And finally to the Captain of this fine ship, Steve the hotel manager who is omnipresent and extremely competent and helpful in dealing with any issues that may arise. When he is not on duty it is evident as there is a definitive change in atmosphere as he is ebullient and effervescent in his approach to the running of the hotel. Finally I would add that on any future visits to the city this hotel is definitely first choice and I would recommend it to even the most discerning of travellers. Congratulations the staff of the Crosby Street Hotel we award you 5 stars and both look forward to seeing you againin the near future.
