    Room was a nice size for the city and the bed was very comfortable, I didn’t feel cramped at all. Blackout shades were a plus in the room and it seemed pretty soundproof. I had a room facing the front of the building/street and barely heard much of the noise from the street unless it was like a siren going off. I loved having a patio area to sit and people watch after a long day of walking around town. One of my favorite features was the button near the TV which allowed you to opt out of housekeeping and light up a consul outside of the room to indicate this, rather than hanging a sign. A small perk but pretty nice. As a solo female traveler, I felt perfectly safe in my room and even walking around the nearby streets for breakfast or brunch. Honestly, the staff was also a great addition to this place. No matter who I met at the desk for whatever the reason was, they were super helpful and didn’t keep you awkwardly standing there with too much tourist chatter.

    The hotel itself is a bit outdated. I understand the vibe they were trying to pull off being close to Chinatown and all that but it felt extremely outdated and a little bland. Not what I expected from the pictures. The kitchen area was also not open in the morning or it was open at random times during the afternoon. I wasn’t ever quite sure if they served a meal in there or if hotel patrons simply gather to chat/use the microwave. If you’re going to be in the room for sleeping/getting ready and out enjoying the town every night, the lack of kitchen and common space together is really not a problem. If you’re looking for a hotel to relax out and have cocktails in the lounge, look elsewhere. If you are a solo female traveler, this may not look like the safest place you’ve ever stayed but looks can be deceiving and I think you should give it a try, especially if the price is right. Also, being 420 friendly might be a requirement if you are walking the halls or sitting on your balcony, if you’re not into that I’d look for something a bit more posh uptown.

    The room was on the end/corner which gave me so much light. I woke up to a very warm relaxing space. I want to request that room every time I come back.

    The staff is helpful, the room was lovely, and I will def be staying again. I highly recommend this place. Can't wait to come back. It is a little far for business, though there is a metro just 3 min walk away.

The Allen Hotel has all of the hallmarks of an old world property with lots of history, but it is actually a new hotel in New York City’s charming Lower East Side. Bordering along the edge of the neighborhood known as the Bowery, it is also close to the famous Katz’s Deli (which is where the notorious deli scene from “When Harry Met Sally” was filmed), SoHo, Bleeker Street, and all of the shopping along Orchard Street, Nolita, and Broadway and Lafayette Streets, including Bloomingdales. The property is steps from public transportation and around seven to 10 miles from the major airports – also readily accessible by subway, cabs, or the Air Train.

While its location alone is enough to make it an appealing choice, its boutique size and long list of amenities make it great for leisure or business travelers alike. It includes a 1,000-square-foot meeting and conference space, an on site café serving cocktails and foods along with local coffee, a concierge, free Wi-Fi throughout, and fitness center with sauna.

The 41 rooms are each uniquely styled and feature such elegant accents as cherry wood floors, Tiffany lights, and premium linens. Most have excellent views and some have private balconies that enhance your experience of those views. Rooms range from deluxe rooms to double or king rooms with or without balconies, as well as penthouse suites. All feature work desks, premium entertainment systems, large and private baths with signature toiletries and luxury fixtures, beverage centers, and sitting areas. The Allen Hotel is luxurious, offers a great location and provides a boutique experience any traveler will love.
