Overview

A trendy downtown stay, among hip dining, shopping and nightlife spots – a handpicked hotel so good, we can’t tell you the name until after you book

The Lowdown

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.

Beware of fees!
Reviewed 1 day ago

The Hotel location is excellent, and it is very easy to reach via the subway from JFK. The hotel is decent enough -- clean, modern, with a hip aesthetic.

However, beware of fees. I booked for $188 per night, but after fees, the price was $251 per night. Up front, they charge you taxes and other "fees" which you are aware of, but when you check out, the THEN add on $25 per day as a "destination fee." They also charge a fee to use your American Express.

There were a couple of problems with my room as well. The air conditioner didn't function well, so my room never got below 77 degrees. Also, there was no hot water the second morning (but I showered late in the morning, and this sometimes happens in large hotels).

I had originally booked this hotel because it seemed like a good value, but I was definitely wrong.

I had a business trip this past week in NYC, and I found myself booking Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. The views of the city landscape were outstanding, and I felt really at ease with the concierge and the front desk staff. All of them were cordial and I was even granted a free upgrade for a room with no additional costs. Mr. Purple, the restaurant/bar above on the 15th floor, had a great atmosphere as well. For sure, I will be coming back!

This hotel is awesome! Very eclectic part of town, friendly staff and the best rooftop bar called Mr Purple. The room was clean and had everything I needed. I loved staying here and can’t wait to stay again! Highly recommend!!
