Towering over New York’s mainly low-rise Lower East Side, the SIXTY LES offers an authentic and stylish downtown experience away from all the touristy clichés. SIXTY LES impresses with an atmosphere that is modern, moody and exceptionally hip. This is obvious the moment you pass through the enormous revolving doors and encounter the elegant industrial design, black slate walls, installation piece staircase — and the good-looking staff.
Bed & Bath
Though the hallways and common spaces are mainly black and dimly lit, the 141 guestrooms are bright and airy. Rough concrete ceilings, exposed columns, low beds with crisp white linens and black-mirrored walls create an inviting, industrial-chic vibe. Illuminated lightboxes serve as the headboards, and in many rooms there are leather banquettes against the floor-to-ceiling windows. The suites benefit from good-size balconies, offering king-of-the-castle views across Manhattan. All bathrooms feel spacious and have glass-enclosed rain showers and Ren bath products.
Apart from the design, the draw here is undoubtedly the scene. The seventh-floor tiki bar, Tiki Tabu, serves fruity cocktails and Blue Ribbon fare in a decidedly summery setting. Those in search of a quiet evening, be warned: A DJ plays late into the night, so rooms above, below and adjacent to the bar can be very noisy. Downstairs, Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya serves the brand’s signature sushi in addition to traditional yakitori and a wide array of entrees served family-style. In the summer months the third-floor pool deck is a highly coveted escape, where a beautiful, mojito-sipping crowd is right at home, while the newly-opened Beer Garden offers a more low-key scene with ping pong, board games and BBQ.
In the Area
Anyone looking for a trip full of local color, low-lit bars and mom-and-pop eateries would be hard pressed to find a better location. Get in line for the must-try pancakes at Clinton Street Baking Company, or make it a boozy brunch at neighborhood favorite Schiller’s. For a late night scene, join New York’s cool kids at Beauty & Essex, a small plates bistro disguised behind a bright pawnshop entrance. For a dose of retail therapy, wander boutique-lined Ludlow and Orchard streets and shop for designer looks at Dear Rivington and hip menswear at Project No. 8. Or head a few blocks farther south and seek out our favorite spots below Delancey Street.
How to Get There
Good size rooms with reasonable closet space and tub in bathroom! Although we were opposite elevator soundproofing was adequate. Only comment is that coffee needs to be provided before 7am restaurant opening as there is no machine in the room
Super friendly staff and generous size rooms make this hotel a stand out! LES has great walkability and close to fun non touristy shops and restaurants. We will be back. The fried rice at the Asian restaurant was delicious !
Stayed at sixty LES for 5 nights in December 2018 had a blast great location in the LES for restaurants and nightlife with good transport options near by to get you to midtown and downtown as well as brooklyn. Rooms were nice we had a great view of the freedom tower from our room. But most of all we found the staff to be excellent especially Raul and Josh the door men /bell hop nothing was too much trouble they were always on hand available and very friendly
We went to New York to enjoy the Christmas decorations a family tradition. This time we booked an Airbnb, huge mistake. We couldn’t spend even a few hours in the place. We were so fortunate to find this hotel. Amazing place. The hotel staff were so friendly and accommodating. I can’t tell you how great they were. The rooms were clean and stylishly updated. Beds were very comfortable. The hotel is close to great coffee shops and famous diners. Not a far walk from The Soho Bloomingdales and other known boutique shops. I have to say the hotel saved our trip from being a disaster. Won’t book an Airbnb in New York again. Would stay at this hotel again.
My sheets were dirty. Staff was very inconsistent ranging from extremely dismissive to mildly attentive. The only positive exception was Raul whom seems to do a bit of everything from opening doors, hailing cabs, helping with check in and check out, delivering room service, etc. Very attentive, helpful and pleasant.
