Map & Directions

The hotel is 30-40 minutes by taxi from JFK Airport, depending on the traffic. The fare is approximately $50, not including tip or toll. The journey from JFK by public transport is longer but costs only $7.50. Take the AirTrain to Howard Beach, then line A subway to Jay Street – Metrotech and finally change to line F to Essex Street, a five-minute walk from the hotel (one hour and 20 minutes in total). If you opt to bring your car, there’s valet parking at the hotel, but it’s pretty pricey (public parking behind the hotel is a little cheaper).

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Every exterior wall in the 21-story Hotel on Rivington has floor-to-ceiling windows, offering views of the Empire State Building in one direction and the Brooklyn Bridge in the other from bedrooms, the lobby, even guest room showers. The modern, monochromatic skyscraper soars above the surrounding brick tenements of Manhattan’s Lower East Side and incorporates the city’s landscape to become part of the design through its transparent facade.

Rooms are larger than the New York average and come equipped with Tempur-Pedic beds, automated curtains, iHome stereos and free Wi-Fi. Minibars are stocked with champagne, candles and massage oil, setting a romantic mood. Half the rooms have balconies with views of the East River and beyond, while all include Italian tiled bathrooms, some outfitted with either Japanese-style deep soaking tubs or oversized steam showers.

On the ground floor, Cafe Medi attracts a stylish crowd for breakfast and dinner before a live DJ takes over on weekend nights. The hotel’s intimate lounge, JIA, has a black-felt pool table and specializes in tacos and tequila. Overnight visitors enjoy exclusive access to all-day coffee and tea as well as a daily wine reception in the guests-only lounge. 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. To reach popular tourist attractions like Times Square, One World Observatory and Central Park, just hop on one of the four subway lines that stop at the end of the street.
