Best Western Bowery Hanbee
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Shops rule nearby SoHo, and nightlife is king on the Lower East Side, a few blocks away
- On the Bowery, a swiftly developing thoroughfare with hot nightlife, trendy restaurants and the New Museum of Contemporary Art
- Near the ethnic enclaves and tasty cuisine of Chinatown and Little Italy, which can get busy with tourists
- The hotel consistently earns top marks for customer service
Few Manhattan roads have spruced up from shabby to chic as quickly as the Bowery. The street that starts in Chinatown and heads north toward the East Village is rapidly filling with trendy bars, pricey clothing shops and cutting-edge art galleries. Toward it's southern end sits the Best Western Bowery Hanbee, a solid, well-priced option close to downtown's other popular neighborhoods.
The area around the hotel provides several opportunities to try regional Chinese cuisines. Little Italy is only a few blocks away, which is worth a scenic stroll (but probably not a bite). There's more charm a few blocks north in Nolita, with small boutiques and coffee shops. The big brands save their best shops for SoHo, about six blocks west.
Rooms are clean and simple, with bamboo floors, slate gray tiled bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. A continental buffet is set out each morning, by a staff that consistently earn praise for excellent service. Most subway lines make a stop close by on Canal Street, to reach major Midtown landmarks.
