Wonderful location (but Lower East Side, not central). Bice bar and public spaces. Beware the tiny, tiny rooms!
Comfort of room. View. Restaurant. Location.
Location, appearance, friendliness of staff, and the rooftop. The fitness center was adequate and even if it wasn't, the view from there was amazing! There was great food at the hotel and all around the neighbourhood, try Wolf Nights and Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop. We spotted a few TV and sports stars in the lobby, that was interesting...they are much uglier in person. I felt like I spent a lot of time waiting for the elevator and the complimentary coffee seemed to be a chore for the staff to deal with. Also, there was an incident when my girlfriend needed assistance with something and the concierge was skeptical that she was a guest and was very rude. Everyone else was great!

Urbant og stilig hotell, flott standard på rom og utstyr, fantastisk baderom. Ekstremt dårlig lydisolering mellom rommene og mot gangen. Svært forstyrrende!
Stilig designhotell med super service - må fremheve conciergen som var veldig hjelpsom med reservasjoner og bookinger, samt roomservice som ryddet og brettet alle klær !!). Nei
Great look, great location. Clean, modern rooms. Perfect for me Last night of my stay, my floor (9th) turned very noisy. Not just in rooms but up and down the hall. Younger crowd yelling to each other, etc. Felt like I was trying to sleep in the middle of a frat party! This was between 1-2am and went on for quite some time. It would have hoped someone would ask them quiet down on room levels.
Location was great with a lot of varied night-life options. Terrace bar and pool is something to check out for sure. A/C worked well but was very loud especially with something loose inside that made a clunking noise constantly while the A/C ran. I called down after the first night to see if could be addressed. Engineering was sent while we were out but the problem wasn't fixed. We got in too late to deal with the second so had to try prob a chair against it to dampen the noise :(
Nice staff, clean rooms in good condition. Courtyard. Subway is very accessible Bridge traffic and unattractive street area.
Good location, clean room Small bed, not "king sized"
I rarely write reviews but our stay at Hoilday Inn LES was perfect as it was three blocks away from my family we were visiting. We booked two rooms for the price of one boutique hotel in the neighborhood. The rooms were clean and modern. I've stayed in luxury hotels like the Ritz and boutique hotels like the Kimptons. This Holiday Inn room reminded me of the W Hotel in San Francisco (size, style, etc. less one down comforter). The staff was always courteous and helpful. Free WiFi! could use their "e-room" to use computer or print boarding passes. Free complementary toiletries if you forgot something. Air conditioner was amazing. Showers and water pressure were awesome. Room was very quiet. This will be our go-to hotel from now on in NYC.
The location is brilliant - right in the middle of a great scene in New York. The hotel design is fantasic with good sized rooms and wonderful floor to ceiling windows. The beds were also extremely comfortable. We didn't recieve good service. We did not have anything explained to us on arrival, but, witnessed other guests recieving better introductions to the hotel and what was available. Even at breakfast we were not told about the buffet (the more cost effective option) until the last day - by another guest not the waiter! The room was also not as clean as we epected from this level of hotel. .
Loved the size of the room, the steam/shower, and the wall of windows Wish there was a shade on the bathroom window, more hooks/shelves in the extra space in the bathroom (only one hook on which to hang two towels?!) How can we be green and re-use towels that can't be hung to dry? The room was a tiny bit tattered - beat up around the edges of walls, unfinished panel behind curtains, curtains hanging off hooks, but I suppose it's hard to keep up with the maintenance in NYC!
Some of the best features of the Hotel on Rivington are what make it unique - the full length windows around the room, including in the shower room were superb, and the views from the 14th floor were amazing. Also the minibar content (premium drinks and spirits) is a nice touch! Being in the Lower East Side was ideal for anyone who wants to go out and experience New York nightlife, as well as being well connected to the rest of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Very different, unique hotel, highly recommended.
the bed was sooo comfortable, we had a 180 degree view of manhattan skyline, excellent by night. staff great and great restaurants +coffee within walkng distance.$5 breakfasts great. No we had a ball for 13 nights and would love to stay there again.
The room was beautiful and we were upgraded when they found out it was our honeymoon. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel bar was great at night! All was great
The room was large(for NYC), the bed was very comfy, and the bathroom very roomy and well-stocked. The lighting in the bathroom was terrible. One small light over mirror and light with dimmer over tub. Very hard to put make-up on!
The rooms were decent. Rather noisy at night. Slamming doors from adjacent rooms. There was noise from people walking in the room above us. There was a lot of noise from outside.
Helpful, friendly staff. Great location. Spacious room with a balcony, great view of Freedom Tower and excellent temper-pedic bed.
Staff was wonderful able to accommodate uptown view request. Views from the hotel were lovely. Street noise, in the 16th floor and we could hear everything.
The staff were great. Starting with Elvis at the door Darnell,, Christine, Alex, Eddie, Leo & the women with the nightly cookies. The fresh baked cookies at night & the restaurant/room service food were very good. Showers & beds fine. (The sheer curtains could be laundered or replaced.)
Large rooms and very friendly staff made for a very enjoyable stay. Location is great when doing things in the LES and adjoining areas. Continental breakfast was included, which was great. Would have been better if we could have applied the value to a hot breakfast when desired.
Decent helpful staff Quite noisy
Friendly staff No lamps, bedside tables or shelves, or closet space
Great location. Modern & sleek design. Easy access to subways & taxis. Unprofessional staff. They were hanging out with hotel guests while on duty. Very small rooms. The bed barely fit lengthwise in the room. Couldn't even lay my bag down. Noise from street & hotel hallway, not great sound proofing in rooms.
Location, staff, price Rooms were very small. Fine for solo travel.
Boutique atmosphere, interesting art ... convenient in the area, low key. I would return. Breakfast was light on items but I'm not a big breakfast person .
Fantastic location in the Lower Eastside as it was situated within easy walkung distance of good bars and resturants. The room was comfortable and a good size.
It was convenient to what we were doing in New York on the lower East Sise. The lobby area was cold and not conducive to relaxing.
staff gave excellent recommendations for activities/meals
Liked the atmosphere of the hotel.. artistic yet cosy? not in particular... location is a bit off from Midtown, but then again that was the reason for choosing this hotel in the first place, as we needed to get on a bus in Chinatown early next morning. Which was convenient as it was a walking distance away.
This hotel is everything that the description says - lovely, characterful building, comfortable bed, great shower (and a bathtub) and I was so grateful for the aircon! Many hotels turn it off when you go out and you return to a nasty hot room - not the case here! I had one of the smaller rooms, but it was still huge, and beautifully furnished. Good to have real coffee in the room too. I also loved the neighbourhood, close to Little Italy, Chinatown and the Lower East Side, there are lots of interesting things to see and do (and eat!) and it felt very safe. It was a pleasure to stay here. China for breakfast would be nice. Paper cups and plastic plates somehow didn't fit - not very environmentally friendly either. I didn't spot the juice and fresh milk for three days - maybe the breakfast area could be arranged better, or maybe I'm just not very observant!
the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was good for my purposes.
Staff, situation in NY Poor breakfast, no working internet
Good price Tiniest thing I've ever seen. Can't turn lights off. Loud. Adjacent to loud train.
This cozy hotel was awesome--location, kind & helpful staff, etc. Was lucky to get a room with large outside terrace..perfect for a night of summer rain. Romantic!
friendly staff breakfast
We liked Blue Moon's location in a fascinating neighborhood, our spacious and comfortable room, and the historic and lovingly renovated building. Helpful staff gave us a warm welcome. This is a high-end boutique hotel at reasonable rate - a true find!
great location, comfortable bed overpriced, noisy--rooms entry is right next to the elevators.
comfort of bed the area around the hotel is very dirty (NYC needs to clean its sidewalks and gutters)
New hotel with small rooms, location is excellent. Would recommend hotel. Rooms are small. Would be difficult with suitcases.
location (lots of restaurant, bars and caffes; very close to subway F), price, hotel staff; at night, it might be a bit noisy during week-ends.
Amazing quality at lovely hotel in the best area of New York! My boyfriend and I spent two nights at this hotel for Veteran's Day 2010. From the start, the reception staff was extremely polite, courteous and friendly. Because our requested room was not available, we were kindly upgraded to a king room for one night without extra charges. We stayed on the 9th and 7th floors and on both nights we enjoyed comfy, immaculate rooms and quiet views of the city- despite being in a very lively area with many nightlife hot spots. We were also made extremely happy by the iPod dock, coffee maker in the room, and free breakfast. You won't find any better quality in New York! Would definitely come back! I wish our stay was longer.
