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 went for a drink, and ended up staying for 2! The waitstaff was so nice and didn’t kick us out for diners. We only had 1 appetizer, but the food around us looked amazing! I want to go back for afternoon tea- it looked really yummy!
From the welcoming greeting upon arriving at the Doorstep of The Crosby Street Hotel to the neatly loaded car (and bottled water for the ride home) as we (sadly) departed, our stay was a Symphony of Flawless Magic. This was our second stay at what is, for sure, our favorite hotel anywhere, and Max and the rest of the team surprised us w a wonderful upgrade to the Crosby Suite. What an amazing space w tremendous windows w a spectacular westerly view. The "Kit Kemp" style touched every detail in the suite. What really made our weekend getaway over the top was the staff. They just get it. They are there for your every question or desire, but they do it in a way that shows they really care. The management of the hotel is spot and the entire machine is working in one direction. It's really great to see and experience. It's also really easy to fall in love w the place and it also makes it easy to fall magically more in love with your wife when you bring her there.
My wife has a BIG Birthday in February 2020 and her one request was to plan the weekend w a stay at The Crosby Street!
See you soon.

I spent two nights here in October. The room was quiet, beautifully furnished and decorated, and extremely homey and comfortable. The sitting room is very comfortable and welcoming. The service was great and all of the staff were extremely pleasant, welcoming and friendly (except for one young blonde woman at reception who was surprisingly unfriendly).The neighborhood has elegant shops and restaurants and is peaceful at night. Several subway lines are close by. I had a wonderful and restful stay and can't wait to come back with my family.
