50 Bowery **** | from € 1269
50 Bowery **** is a boutique hotel in Chinatown, yes! This hotel at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge is located at the crossroads of the oldest and now fashionable districts of Soho, Lower East Side, Tribeca and Brooklyn. The subway takes you to all corners of Manhattan or Brooklyn in a jiffy.
Old Chinatown serves as inspiration for the decor while modern touches reflect the evolution to modern Chinatown. The rooms bathe in light and have oak floors, XL-windows and original artwork reflecting the dynamic New York art scene. The literal crown on this jewel? The Crown, the hotel’s rooftop terrace lounge on the 21st floor which provides magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.
