A glass skyscraper amid a sea of brick tenements on the Lower East Side, the super-chic Hotel on Rivington holds its own as one of the area’s few luxe properties. Its funky entrance and hip, minimalist vibe blend with plenty of thoughtful touches, such as free all-day refreshments in the guest-only lounge and a daily wine reception in the lobby (12-6 p.m.).
The hotel’s American restaurant, CO-OP Food & Drink (open for breakfast, weekend brunch and dinner) attracts a stylish crowd for the dining as well as the live DJ sets on the weekend. And don’t miss Viktor & Spoils, the hotel’s more intimate tequila bar (open 10 p.m. - 3 a.m., Thursday-Saturday). The hotel also provides guests complimentary access to a 24-hour fitness center, and the East River Promenade is nearby for a scenic waterfront jog.
The edgy downtown location is great for nightlife, and the hotel is also within a 20-minute walk of bars and restaurants in the East Village, SoHo, Chinatown and Little Italy. It’s a little farther to the main tourist sites, such as the Empire State Building and Times Square, but the transport connections are good -- the Delancey Street (line F) and Essex Street (lines J, M and Z) stations are at the end of the street.
Huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms on the higher floors offer staggering views of Manhattan, the East River and beyond, and half of all rooms have balconies. Rooms are larger than the New York average and have fantastic Tempur-Pedic beds and luxury bath amenities such as showers with a view and Japanese-style deep soaking tubs.
