Sixty LES

190 Allen St., between Houston and Stanton Sts., New York, New York, 10002, USA

This hotel is a great embodiment of the neighborhood inhabitants: hip, but friendly when you get to know it. The two-story lobby bustles with Europeans, musicians, and others with carefully crafted hair. Rooms are stark, black-and-white affairs, with low platform beds whose headboards are light boxes displaying works by the photographer Lee Friedlander. The desk space can be cramped, and although the windows are big, come nighttime, rooms can feel seriously dark. Suites, on the building's corners, have balconies with sweeping views of both downtown and Midtown—some of the best in the city. The neighborhood is a nexus for nightlife, and the hotel's rooftop bar and pool is a great place to start.

PROS

  • in the heart of downtown scene
  • great views from suites
  • hip rooftop bar and pool

CONS

  • occasionally snobby staff
