Taking a straightforward approach to design, Orchard Street Hotel lets its hip Lower East Side ’hood do all the talking. Exposed brick, concrete columns, and sleek leather furniture make a bold impression in the industrial-chic reception, keeping all eyes on the lively sidewalk scene beyond the 15-foot lobby windows. The stark-white guest rooms come outfitted with walnut-hued wood furnishings, generous work desks, and low-slung beds with crisp white duvets and, while on the small side, feel airy and loft-life thanks to oversized windows that flood the rooms with natural light. Splurge on a Deluxe Queen Room for more space and better views. Grab a free coffee or tea from the lobby, then head to Ludlow Fitness for a morning workout (be sure to pick up a free access pass in advance). Although there’s no on-site restaurant, some of the city’s best dining venues are just around the corner.
In the Area
Tuck into chia seed pudding and squash-topped granola alongside health-conscious hipsters at cozy neighborhood favorite, El Rey Coffee Bar & Luncheonette, then walk two blocks south to tour the restored apartments of New York’s 19th and 20th century immigrants at The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. If you’re hungry, stop for a bagel and lox and a caraway-infused-vodka Bloody Mary at Russ & Daughters Café, or skip lunch altogether and opt for a scoop of something sweet at nearby Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream parlor. From there, peruse antiques and vintage clothing on Elizabeth Street, flagship stores on Broadway, or catch a foreign flick at Angelika Film Center.
How to Get There
I can absolutely recommend this hotel .I first Heard- about that place from friends whonstayed there.Very friendly people at the reception,beautiful and clean rooms.Nice location.I will definitely come back next year.Five Stars from me!
The location was perfect for what we needed. The room size is very small, but it’s New York and it was only for one night. The price was comparable to other hotels in the area. We asked to stay on the opposite side of Orchard Street, since Orchard Street can get pretty loud even on a weekday. The continental style breakfast was very good. They did not have any hot items (except oatmeal) but mentioned that they were looking to increase their offerings.
I was staying in this very nice hotel with a few friends over the weekend. I had a Deluxe Queen room on 11th floor. I could see the Empire State Building from my shower. Naleni was very generous and upgraded my friend to the 11th floor too! Great neighborhood. I hope to be back soon!
