Expert Review

With the opening of their Bowery Hotel in early 2007, Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson (of Maritime Hotel fame) played a major role in the transformation of the Bowery – an infamously derelict downtown street – from skid row to hipster haven. The boho-chic décor – old Oriental rugs and velvet chairs intermingling with Restoration Hardware-like furniture – is as motley as its in-the-know clientele. In the rooms, iPod stereos, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and free Wi-Fi meet techie standards, while 400-thread-count sheets, C.O. Bigelow bath products, and 24-hour room service satisfy hedonist expectations. You won't get particularly pampered here (despite the high price), but the 135 spacious rooms – a rarity in Manhattan – and buzzing atmosphere (with hopping restaurant and bar scenes that draw locals) are worth the pretty penny.
