A spa hotel on NYC's Lower East Side

1/4

Manhattan’s Lower East Side is fast becoming the go-to area for cool, boutique hotels. Sixty Lower East Side Hotel, is right in the center of this quirky neighbourhood, plus it has a myriad of amenities including a rooftop pool, a sushi restaurant and a great spa.

The hotel is surrounded by some cool museums, such as The Tenement and The New Museum and is only a short walk from Eric’s favourite area: East Village. Head to St. Marks Place for alternative shops and a lively music scene.

Whilst not the best looking building from the outside (the sixties have a lot to answer for when it comes to architecture) don’t judge a book by its cover. On the inside the hotel does not fail to impress, with just the right combination of luxury and cool to suit the grit and modernity of the area.

Take a dip in the heated pool, put on your robe and relax in the lounge area, or indulge in a treatment. Revive your tired muscles with a stress relieving massage and allow the essential oils to do their work before continuing your evening in the vibrant neighbourhood.
