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
This is the second time I have stayed at Crosby Street and I absolutely love it! I think the location in Soho is fantastic and close to so much. I live in the UK and meet friends in NYC and this is a great hotel for catch ups and the small bar for guests is perfect - like being in someone's living room.
The service from all employees is impeccable and Kit Kemp's designs are lovely. There are great restaurants and shopping all around the hotel. There is a blow dry bar less than a block away that is open really early for jet laggers!
The best hotel in Soho in my opinion. The staff go out of their way to make sure you're happy. They have a great bar and outstanding service. People actually run to get you a cab. They upgraded one of the rooms we were in so we could be right next door to our son and the location is right where you want to be. Compare to the Peninsula in Beverly Hills without the Rolls Royce.
Attention to detail is paid everywhere it counts. Everything you interact with is excellent.
It has the comforts of the big palaces of uptown, with the personalized touch and personality of soho.
Checking out tomorrow and already booked my next visit next week.
We stayed at the Crosby Street Hotel for my birthday weekend at the end of December. Basically chose this hotel because of it's bright and cheery whimsical decor. The rooms are the hightlight of this hotel. Designed by London based interior designer Kit Kemp. Our room was a beautiful mixture of luxurious color, textured and patterned fabrics. Especially loved the floor to ceiling warehouse style windows overlooking downtown NYC. The walls of our room were covered in gorgeous gray flannel (so warm and inviting in the wintertime). The bathroom was on the smaller side, however, was made of stunning gray patterned marble to compliment the gray flannel walls.
The hotel is located on one of the quieter streets in SOHO, which is one of the top 3 neighborhoods in NYC. Breakfast was included with our room rate; and was awesome! The bar/restaurant is cozy and adorable.
There is also a small library bar located off the reception area that is available only to hotel guests, which is a nice touch. There is an honor bar system which means you can make and serve yourself drinks and then record your room number and what you poured. Your bill will be charged accordingly.
Crosby Street Hotel has the feel of staying in a friends' townhouse; cozy, intimate and inviting!
Light, bright rooms that are well equipped with nescesities. Great hairdryer girls ! Steamer & iron available on request
The breakfast was among the best I’ve sampled in any hotel.
The restaurant / bar was buzzing on an evening but we always managed to get a seat.
Nice sized gym for the size of hotel too
