Such a Wonderful Stay
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My husband and I had such an incredible experience at Sago Hotel last night.

From the beginning, the staff was so gracious and friendly. We checked in very late and they helped bring our stuff upstairs and upgraded our room to a beautiful suite. The room was large, clean, with a large window and amazing view of the city. The decor is beautiful and tasteful, with easy-to-use appliances and an incredible spa bath. The bed was comfortable and we slept well.

The restaurant attached, Noga, is fabulous. It has a unique and charming menu and is well-priced. It's also kosher. Everything we got tasted fresh and delicious and looked *beautiful* -- it feels like they really put effort into every plate of food they bring out. We especially recommend the desserts, which are mouthwatering -- the carrot cake and pudding are fantastic.

It was such a great experience at Sago.

Minimalist calm
Reviewed 1 month ago

This room was a soothing balm after a busy day out touristing in New York. Super close to the Tenement museum, walking distance to the Brooklyn Bridge and then a bit further to the 9/11 memorial, it's really well located. I was given a free upgrade on arrival and found my room to be a real treat. In particular the bathroom was lovely, with excellent water pressure. I found the bed and pillows very comfortable. The rooms match the photos.

Very comfortable room, friendly staff, great location.

I was in New York City Saturday, February 9th, 2019 for a Lunar New Year's party. Inasmuch as February is often quite cold in the city, I Googled lodging near the restaurant where the party was to be held. I've done this before. My brother has thrown this party each year for forty years. It is important to me to have a place to rest after the festivities. This year I tried the Sago and was very pleased. It was a block away from where the party was to be held. After checking in, I walked around the area. This is the Lower East Side. The Sago is across the street from an important destination: The Tenement Museum. There is much history in this part of the city. The museum itself draws people from all over the world, as does Russ and Daughters Cafe. There is a fantastic LGBT bookshop a few doors down, many places for food and drink. It is a lively area for tourists and city folk alike. The Sago is a boutique hotel, no higher than five floors, I believe. I asked if I could visit the rooftop patio, and the man at the desk said yes. He showed me the elevator and up I went. I sat in the sitting room near the glass doors leading to the patio, poured myself a hot tea and slid a door. There are two patios, facing different directions. I explored both of them and enjoyed the pristine, sunny, winter breeze, observing the water towers any fan of the New York skyline seeks. My room was on the second floor. I went down there and rested up in anticipation of the New year's party. I fell asleep almost instantly. It's a good place to sleep. I felt like a king in a Dr. Seuss story, sinking into dreamland on a massive comfortable bed. The room was warm and, unlike almost any hotel room I've stayed in, it was steady in its warmth for my entire stay. Returning later that night from the party, the clerk let me in. When I checked out the next day I had a backpack on and the clerk asked me, without my prompting, if I'd like to leave it with the hotel for a few hours after checking out. I thanked him and said that was all right, but what impressed me was the offer. A guest, checking out, is still important to the Sago, and they realize that most guests don't leave the city right away after check-out. I will recommend the Sago to anyone visiting New York and will I will visit it again.

Disappointing
Reviewed 1 month ago

We had stayed here before and been very comfortable, but when we returned to the Sago for four nights this month we had a number of small problems that added up to a frustrating, disappointing stay. In the bathroom, the shower door would open only with superhuman effort, there was dirty, discolored grout on the tiles and when you turned on the faucet in the sink, the handle came off in your hand. The light over the desk began blinking furiously the first night -- luckily that was fixed for the rest of our visit. No one could figure out how to turn on closed captioning on the TV, which I need because of my hearing impairment. And the outlet near the coat rack didn't work at all, making that part of the room very dark. We mentioned these problems to the front desk person when we checked out, but she didn't seem to be very concerned about them, which made us feel that we were not particularly valued as guest.

The Rare Mix of Price, Quality, and Service
Reviewed 2 months ago

The minimalist, industrial grey motif of this hotel might not be for everyone, and the Lower East Side location is surely a matter of taste but there can be no denying that this hotel is a cut above.

In particular, the staff were welcoming and dedicated to hospitality. Matthew was especially gracious. He jumped out from behind the front desk to help us in from the sidewalk. He was also a font of knowledge about the area, even typing and printing out an itinerary for us. We felt that nothing was too much trouble for him, and he had answers for every question. Every staff member we encountered, both in person and on the phone, was engaged and helpful.

We were on the 4th floor in a King Orchard which was enormous by NYC standards and noise was not an issue. We loved the exposed steel beams and painted cinder block. The bed was excellent and blackout curtains were very effective.

We enjoyed the 10th floor lounge, and can only imagine how glorious it would be up there in more temperate weather.

If you are looking for a spot in the LES, look no further.
