In New York, styles come and go faster than a dinner reservation on a Saturday night. But SIXTY SoHo has managed to do the impossible, remain a bastion of downtown cool for nearly 15 years. A 2015, multimillion renovation cements its perennially chic status with London designer Tara Bernerd’s new look—think art collector bachelor pad meets flirty pied a terre. Sunlight streams through loft-style windows in the lobby, which feels more like a living room with seating areas—a velvet chesterfield here, a midcentury armchair there—divided by bookcases covered in design tomes, art catalogs and funky objets d’art. On the walls hang works by contemporary art heavy hitters from Ryan McGinley to Will Cotton, including pieces specially commissioned from Harland Miller.
Bed & Bath
The 97 rooms now have a more playful vibe with studded Alexander McQueen deerhead pillows, buttery leather headboards, jewel-toned sofas and your own bar set-up (think cut crystal barware with shakers and full-sized liquor bottles). But really, it’s all about the Soho views out the (in most rooms) floor-to-ceiling windows.
Restaurateur John McDonald of hotspots like Lure Fish Bar, El Toro Blanco and Bowery Meat Company opened a buzzy coastal Italian spot, Sessanta Ristorante, in June 2015. Grab a drink beforehand in the sexy Gordon Bar, where you can sip Manhattans amid a living wall in the atrium-like side room or cozy up by the fire. The highlight of a summer stay at SIXTY SoHo is access to the intimate rooftop bar, A60. Open only to hotel guests and in-the-know local members, it has views of the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and just about every other iconic New York edifice.
In the Area
You’re in Manhattan’s premier shopping district, so flex that plastic. Our favorite homegrown boutiques include Rag & Bone, on Mercer Street, and Alexander Wang, on Grand Street. For more affordable Made in the USA fashion, head to the J. Crew on Prince, which has a fantastic kids section, sister brand Madewell and Club Monaco, which has two Soho stores. For a peerless edit of domestic and international labels, check out Barneys Co-Op. After working up an appetite, grab a seat at one of the communal tables at Hundred Acres, where the ham, poached eggs and jalapeño grits are the must-order; join the line to get into Dutch, on the same block, where you can have your soft-scrambled eggs with a side of Wellfleet oysters; or hit stalwart Balthazar for the best eggs Florentine in town and an Oyster Mary. Art enthusiasts should save an afternoon for exploring the New Museum: A glorious stack of gauze boxes by Japanese architectural firm SANAA rising from the Bowery, it’s the only museum dedicated solely to contemporary art in Manhattan. If the exhibition doesn’t turn you on, the view from the Sky Room on the top floor will. Finally, take in a flick like a local — this nabe has an embarrassment of theaters. On East Houston, the Sunshine shows art house movies from around the world.
How to Get There
I will want to stay again as I did not have time to enjoy the outdoor dining or the Upper Deck. Staff was friendly. and location was perfect as my daughter lives in the SOHO area of NYC. Room decor was simple and lovely in that.
First time I've stopped in the sixty Soho hopefully not my last great hotel very helpful staff great location close to the subway only a couple of little things to moan about $12 for a bottle of water is shocking & the lad who lets you up to the roof top bar needs to be a bit more friendly
Fancy hotel in the middle of Soho. All testaurants and shop nearby. Very confortable room and beds. And very clean as well. Very nice rooftop with amazing view and bar. Staff always polite, professional and helpful.
We were initially placed on the 12th floor which seemed ideal. However the 12th floor (and the room) was located directly under the rooftop bar. The bass from the music came through loud and clear. When I called the front desk and asked to be relocated to another room, they said they couldn't accommodate until us the next day but they acknowledged that this was an ongoing problem. Seems like the hotel needs to decide whether to accommodate paying guests or those who like to party all night long. Although they moved us the next day, it was one lost night in an expensive hotel. No apologies either from the staff. While they did provide a nominal discount on the bill, I would have preferred to sleep. It was ironic because I chose the hotel because of its location away from noise. BTW this the first review I have ever written. Just wanted to warn future travelers.
Our stay at Sixty Soho exceeded our expectations! We loved the proximity to great bars, cafes, subway station, variety of restaurants and shopping. The staff were always friendly and happy to help. Our teenage children were able to safely walk to nearby eateries in the early evening on their own. The style, decor and ambience of the hotel is beautiful and Bistro Leo is a great space to relax and enjoy a meal or a drink. I almost forgot to mention the rooftop bar...unforgettable!
