A great alternative to the touristy hotels in Midtown and Times Square, The Hotel on Rivington is a 21-storey glass tower set in the hip Lower East Side. The immaculate rooms feature designer furniture, flat screen TVs, and curtains that automatically open at the hour of your chosen wake-up call,whilst glassed-in bathrooms have steam showers and two-person Japanese-style soaking tubs. Book your room on one of the higher floors and enjoy 360-degree city views. Staff can be a little snooty but are as easy on the eyes as the hotel itself. The hotel restaurant, eponymously named Thor, offers fantastic food and the lounge becomes a scene around 10pm; just don’t forget your keycard or you may not make it past the door-bitch.
What others say
Located in district du jour, the Lower East Side, the Hotel on Rivington is contemporary, lively and spacious. It’s the tallest building in this part of town, so ask for a room that affords you panoramic views of New York’s skyline through the floor-to-ceiling windows. And the TempurPedic beds are the best feature when it comes to the time you spend with your eyes closed.
What others say
18.0 of 20. It’s an incongruous sight, this sleek glass tower sprouting above its low-slung brick neighbors, but you can’t argue with the results — the views from the rooms, even on the middling floors, are extraordinary, taking in the Financial District, the downtown bridges, even the midtown towers, depending on your room’s orientation. And the rooms themselves are surprisingly luxurious, with flat-screen televisions, CD stereo systems and access to a carefully curated DVD library, along with low-tech charms like Frette linens and robes and, in many rooms, private terraces from which to take in the jaw-dropping views.
