On a cobblestone Soho street just off Broadway, the Broome Hotel feels like your own private NYC pad, complete with a hard-to-spot townhouse entrance up a steep stoop. The petite lobby and friendly staff reinforce the home-away-from-home vibe, though the well-curated lobby giftshop is pure Downtown, stocking a hip mix of jewelry, lingerie, accessories and keepsakes by mostly local designers.
Bed and Bath
Revealing of the building’s former life as residential artists lofts, all 14 guestrooms are stacked around the central courtyard — a unique layout that again nods to the Broome’s intimate, pied-a-terre vibe. Rooms are uniformly elegant in grown-up grays and whites, with courtyard or Broome Street views, spa-like marble bathrooms stocked with own brand toiletries, flat-screen TVs and well stocked minibars, and supremely comfy Queen beds. Splurge on the whole-floor Penthouse for your own furnished terrace, private elevator entrance and enormous bathroom with a deep soaking tub.
Beyond a small meeting room, the heart of the hotel is a gorgeous secret courtyard garden that’s sure to be guests’ all hours hangout come summer. For now, it’s the bracing thoroughfare to the French-style bistro where a continental breakfast spread of pastries, fruit and good coffee is served each morning. There are plans to turn this space into an all-day restaurant and bar later this year. Wedding parties take note: the hotel welcomes group bookings, so you could take over the entire pad for visiting friends and family, and, in the courtyard and cafe, have secluded spaces for a private event.
In the Area
Shoppers are spoiled for choice in this part of town, from sprawling international chain stores such as Uniqlo to designer outposts of Prada and Marc Jacobs and Burberry to trendsetting boutiques like Opening Ceremony. The New Museum may not be so new anymore (it opened in 2007), but the rotating exhibits and stacked box façade feel completely of-the-moment. The newly renovated Public Theater is your ticket for edgy new plays, thoughtful cabaret acts and innovative restagings of the classics. Locals share lingering meals at the Smile, a cozy subterranean spot serving reasonably priced seasonal fare. Or opt for a power breakfast or late night steak frites at Balthazar.
How to Get There
I absolutely love The Broome! I come to NYC every year and I always book the Broome for my stay. For such a busy city, the hotel is the perfect place to stay given it’s serene and beautiful environment is the middle of Soho. The service is first class, the breakfast is amazing (thank you for my daily truffle soft boiled eggs, fruit, pastries, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice) and the rooms are lovely. See you next year!
Amazing hidden gem in Soho. We have stayed here several times when visiting nyc from London. The penthouse is beautiful with a fantastic terrace and the staff couldn’t be more delightful or helpful. Fantastic location for shopping and restaurants. We will be back!
What a find! A quiet haven in the heart of SOHO. A true boutique hotel. Around 14 rooms, all very quiet and well equipped. No iron but a complimentary ironing service which was very quick. Beds were a little too soft for my back but my kids and husband loved them! Only slight issue was space for hanging is compromised by the mini bar and safe. Could be an issue if you are particularly tall with long dresses etc. But in all rooms there is good drawer space. Bathrooms were a good size with large towels and lots of extras!
Breakfast is included and plentiful and nothing is too much trouble. The outside courtyard where breakfast is served feels very European and is very peaceful and is available for use anytime of the day.
All the staff were brilliant, particularly Lilia on reception who couldn't have been more helpful and a delight to deal with.
We would definitely return.
