Only criticism was the restaurant under refurbishment and breakfast was in the ground floor bar area but I presume this is only temporary.
Room was nice. Clean. Great view.
Overall better than some much more expensive hotels I have stayed in before.

"Great hotel for easy commuting in/around New York!"
Stayed at the Holiday Inn NYC Lower East Side for 4 nights in November 2015.
The hotel is excellently located for commuting in/around New York! (near the Williamsburg Bridge and only 2 mins walk from the Delancey/Essex Street subway station....... 10 minute journey up to Times Square/Central Park area)
Hotel was very clean, staff were always helpful and friendly.
Free wifi with good reception throughout the hotel.... not just in the lobby like some places.
Prices in the "on site" bar were a bit expensive but there were plenty of alternatives close by for it not to be a problem.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to stay in the Lower East Side
"Great Boutique Hotel Near Little Italy, Chinatown"
After some recent reviews, I was hesitant about my upcoming stay at the Sohotel. However, I'm happy to report that I had a pleasant one-night stay. I took a taxi from LaGuardia Airport, and had the driver take the Williamsburg Bridge as Google Maps stated it was the quickest route. I arrived within 35 minutes and paid $40 with tip. I was greeted at the hotel by Singh, who took my bag and showed me up to the lobby. As others have pointed out, this is a very old building (built in 1808) and does not have elevators. I didn't find this to be an issue but I only had one carry-on bag.
I arrived 10 minutes prior to scheduled check-in so my room was not ready. Instead of having me wait, I was upgraded to a bigger room - free-of-charge. The room had two double beds and one twin. Everything was clean. There was full size shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles in the shower. There was also complimentary travel size toothpaste and lotion in the bathroom.
I was told there was construction going on until 5 pm but I didn't mind the noise. At night, there was very little street noise but the pipes were rather loud, and woke me up twice.
Checkout was quick and simple. I had an event to attend between checkout and my flight, but the hotel gladly stored my bags as well as scheduled a car to pick me up when I returned.
Overall, a great experience.
