Hotel on Rivington: luxurious boutique hotel with sweeping views in Lower East Side (NYC)

After my enthusiastic review of The Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca, readers have been asking me about other hotels I like in NYC. One particular hotel comes to mind: the Hotel on Rivington. It’s a modern, 21-story glass “tower” in the Lower East Side. My favorite feature: large guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and magnificent views of New York City. The vibe at The Rivington is very different from that at The Greenwich Hotel. The Rivington attracts a much younger, livelier crowd and is the center of a lot of nighttime activity in the neighborhood. The lounge bar and the restaurant are often packed, but not to worry, as a guest, you do not hear any noise in your room. And the location couldn’t be better. I enjoy hanging out in the Lower East Side because it’s a vibrant neighborhood with funky shops, good restaurants and bars.

  • Vibe: young, hip modern luxury boutique hotel with magnificent views; location attracts more creative artsy types.
  • Pros: Lower East Side location is ideal, close to shops and restaurants, with a lounge bar that is lively at night (good for people watching); stunning views from the rooms (I like showering in a glass-encased bathroom over Manhattan).
  • Cons: if you like peace and quiet and don’t like crowds in the lobby of your hotel, this isn’t for you.
