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
A beautiful hotel with great staff. Downstairs is a wonderful bar in which we have enjoyed several evenings. Last night, the drinks were a total miss even though service was lively. How does a martini have no to little vodka? Hope it was just a busy night.
Stayed here after a stay at their sister hotel the Whitby which was amazing, and I’ll be sure to go back.
Excellent location and staff are great. Rooms are a great size and the bed is like sleeping on air. So, after a great nights sleep you’re glad of the awesome power shower in a well designed bathroom.
My only floors are, lighting in the bedroom is a bit awkward, low floor rooms are noisy, and as an English man in NYC I’d love tea making facilities.
I did love it, just not as much as Whitby. You tore my affections, slightly.
We just stopped in for a drink. Bartender was especially helpful and engaging. Great part of NYC. We will definitely try to stay here on a future trip. The food looked delicious. Beautiful hotel and very clean.
