As far as NYC gastronomy, nightlife, art and entertainment are concerned, it’s hard to beat the Lower East Side. From housing immigrants in the early 20th century, this neighborhood has transformed into a different kind of international hub, boasting everything from a Japanese boutique to taquerías to iconic Katz’s Delicatessen. Nowhere but here can you hop from the 1900s apartments of the Tenement Museum to the cutting-edge galleries of the New Museum in the morning, then spend the afternoon perusing high-end consignment stores, have dinner at an Argentinean steakhouse, and get dessert at a gluten-free bakery.
For your stay, pick a hotel that caters to travelers from near and far. This award-winning getaway is proud to serve as a comfortable, convenient and appropriately stylish base, among some of the best restaurants and nightspots. (It even has a popular eatery and bar of its own.) With a sleek bath, an HDTV and luxurious bedding, your room will be a fresh, modern retreat, after your full day of sightseeing, shopping, dining and drinking – and a lovely place to rest up for another. That is, if you don’t spend the night dancing on a local rooftop.
*After you book, we’ll give you the name of this Hush-Hush Hotel.
How to Get There
I was seriously disappointed with my stay at this hotel. Don’t get me wrong. The hotel is good and I’m sure I will go back. Good location. Friendly staff. Comfy room. But I was annoyed they charged me $20 a day on top of what I already paid Expedia as a “destination fee”. Rip off more like! Little things matter. A hotel that boasts of “a truly authentic experience” needs to ask itself in what way this kind of treatment is authentic. Rant over.
We came to visit my daughter at NYU. The lobby is on the 14yh floor with gorgeous views. We stayed in a large king bed room. Everything was beautiful. We had drinks at the 15th floor bar. Guacamole was great! Bed was comfortable. All was great!
Only downside was the beautiful shower allowed water to leak into rest of bathroom which would have been fine except the bathroom drain was higher than the floor. There was water everywhere!
Came with my wife for our honeymoon - amazing hotel! Very nice rooms, exceptional customer service, and great location.
Shout out to Carvey, who put us in an amazing room on the 20th floor, corner room with a complete view of the financial district, and also could see the empire state building.
There are some great food spots nearby, along with bars and live music. The F line for the metro was just 3 blocks away, which made it easy to get everywhere.
Overall amazing experience, and we recommend this hotel to anyone! We will be back.
I loved staying at this hotel. I liked the quirkiness of the property. The industrial feel of the room. It had everything you needed. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Sheets were impeccably clean.
The lobby/common room had a view that people would kill for in NYC. Simply breathtaking. I did not try the bar. The coffee house in the common area is a first class rip off and should be avoided at all possible costs if you want to escape with any money in your wallet. Instead, sneak out to the Whole Foods up the street and bring back the food to eat in the common room.
Rooms can be pricey. My night the walk up rate was $400 a night, I paid $170. Check prices early and book the second you see the low price.
Getting around is easy on the LES (Lower East Side). Indigo is down Ludlow street right by Katz Deli (famous from the Meg Ryan scene in When Harry Met Sally) off Houston. Easy access from the ring road, walking distance to NYU. Near the 2 ave train.
Taxis from midtown will run about $25 bucks. Force yourself to take the bus or train to keep your cash.
Across the street from Katz deli, a few steps from the Indigo is a branch of the best gelato in NYC. About $4.50 gets you a nice size portion with two scoops.
Parking is available in the same building but the rates were high. Use spothero.com to shop around for parking prices nearby. I paid $70 plus tip for parking about 8 blocks away. If mobility is an issue drop off the bags and family with the bellman and park on your own.
Compliments to the well trained and professional staff. Clearly Indigo hires the people with the right personality type for hospitality work. They are happy to be working at Indigo.
My husband go to nyc a couple times a year to visit family and friends and this was one of the top hotels we've stayed in yet. Modern and design with really cool artwork everywhere you looked. Lots of amenities and staff was top notch. Our room was on the 20th floor and the view was incredible. The subway was literally at the end of the block and was a quick ride to everything christmas in the city. We'll definately be back!
