THE BROOME, NEW YORK

Behind the doors of this 14-room brownstone, in the heart of historic SoHo, is a vibrant European-inspired boutique guesthouse. Housed in an architectural gem of a building from 1825, which boasts an open courtyard and penthouse with views over busy Broome Street.

The Broome is set in the most perfect location for those who want to be surrounded with the trendy shops, cafes and bars on offer in New York’s much sought after downtown area. Broome Street itself forms the boundary of Nolita (North of Little Italy) and so not more than a short walk will you find Little Italy’s traditional pizza & pasta restaurants which were a firm favrourite of ours. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated throughout in a contemporary style with a hint of the industrial aesthetic taken from the community in which the hotel is surrounded by. An eclectic collection of artwork decorates the interiors and adds to the warm and inviting space.

This small boutique hotel has 14 small-but-perfectly-formed bedrooms, consisting of four categories; From Deluxe Queen, Deluxe Queen with Patio, Junior Suite and the Penthouse. We stayed in the Deluxe Queen with Patio which opens up onto a shared balcony that looks onto the quaint open air courtyard. The view was beautiful but we can imagine those who suffer from claustophobia would prefer the Delux Queen with views onto the street, or better still the Penthouse with its own private terrace and balcony.

Breakfast, with fresh produce all sourced from local suppliers, is served every morning in the cafe just to the side of the courtyard. Since we visited in January just before the snow storm we began our mornings sipping fresh coffee tucked up inside in the warm. Come the spring you could easily spend a few hours outside in the courtyard, enjoying warm criossants and fresh juice or pouring over the many art and design books with a nice glass of your favourite tipple.
