Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Surrounded by upscale shopping, nightlife, and close to subways in hip SoHo 
  • Sophisticated, modern rooms and suites with Sferra linens, luxe marble baths, and minibars 
  • Ultra hip bars A60 (rooftop) and The Gordon
  • Classic French fare at Bistrot Leo
  • 24-hour room service
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

  • Limited amenities: no gym, pool, or business center
  • Hallway noise can infiltrate rooms 
  • Complaints about broken air-conditioning in rooms 

Bottom Line

As an upscale boutique property with sleek urban interiors, a chic garden restaurant, moody lounge bar, and exclusive rooftop bar -- the upscale SIXTY SoHo epitomizes downtown swank. Its location amid prime shopping, dining, and all-night fun in an eternally hip Manhattan neighborhood helps keep it at the top of the cool meter. While most of the 97 rooms aren’t huge, they are handsomely decorated with rich tones, luxe textures, and hardwood floors for a timeless modern feel. Slick chocolate marble bathrooms with Ren toiletries and Sferra bathrobes are nice touches, but tempting minibars are very overpriced (try $12 for a water). While the downtown location and cool ambience are a treat for some, the lack of a gym and a pool may disappoint others. Those seeking a boutique experience with a pool should try The James New York, SoHo

Scene

Downtown chic, sleek, and sophisticated -- without being pretentious or flashy

Although SoHo’s shopping certainly draws hordes of locals and tourists alike, the area only has a few hotels. Most of them -- The Mercer, SoHo Grand, The James, and SIXTY SoHo -- are stylish, expensive, and popular with celebrities and executives from the fashion and entertainment industries. In a city in which the hottest new club or restaurant is lucky to have a six-month shelf life before reinvention is necessary, SIXTY SoHo has managed to stay relevant since its initial inception (formerly 60 Thompson), through sleek but never flashy interiors, attentive but unpretentious service, and a hip restaurant/ bar scene. And so the reputation continues (and evolves), after a 2015 multimillion dollar renovation. 

The 13-story tower perfectly fits its neighborhood of brick tenement buildings and cast-iron lofts, while the mood-lit lobby emanates expensive SoHo hipness. Set on the second floor, the lobby is presented as a large open living area with velvet Chesterfield lounge and bench seating, Midcentury-style marble-topped coffee tables, cowhide rugs, and an eclectic mix of ornaments alongside neat piles of artsy coffee table books. Black-and-white photos, and contemporary artworks by British artist, Harland Miller, adorn gray wood-panel walls. Huge cast iron windows showcase the tenement buildings.

Between the A60 rooftop bar, The Gordon Bar, and the hip Bistrot Leo restaurant, each dining/imbibing space embodies its own hip and contemporary vibe that warrants a cocktail crawl within the hotel. Bistrot Leo's cozy garden terrace seating flanks the hotel entrance, and evolves indoors with caramel woods, deep orange leathers, and a nostalgic soundtrack -- think David Bowie and LCD Soundsystem. Hidden behind the lobby, The Gordon Bar’s minimalist, moody dark-wood interior is offset by its illuminated top-shelf liquor bottles. A60 is the rooftop open-air affair ringed with colorful cushions and landscaped shrubs -- flaunting marvelous views over the city. The hotel typically attracts a well-heeled tourist crowd of adults. 

Location

In the heart of trendy SoHo, among residential tenement buildings, upscale boutiques, and eateries 

SIXTY SoHo sits on narrow Thompson Street which runs between West Broadway and Sullivan Street -- just beyond the throngs of shoppers indulging in the area's most upscale boutiques and charismatic restaurants. Within a four-block radius you'll find Dominique Ansel Bakery, Zara, Black Tap (for Insta-inspired shakes), and the Apple store. The neighboring areas of Chinatown, Greenwich Village, and NoLIta, add to the seemingly unlimited dining, drinking, and boutique shopping on offer. Walkable sites include Washington Square Park (11 minutes), the New Museum (15 minutes), and the Freedom Tower (23 minutes) but most of NYC's uptown tourist sites will require a cab or subway ride. A couple of subway stations are located in easy walking distance, offering easy access up and down town. The nearest stations include Canal Street for the 1, 2, 5 (nine minutes), and Spring Street station for the A, C, E (eight minutes). It's about a 45-minute drive to JFK Airport and 30 minutes to LaGuardia from the hotel. 

Rooms

Sleek, modern rooms with luxe marble bathrooms, plush robes, Ren toiletries -- and (extortionate) minibars 

The rooms and suites (including a Loft layout) -- are tasteful and sleekly appointed, but not flashy. The chic decor vibe established in common areas flows into rooms, where a blend of rich textures and tones (dark woods with deep grays and beige) complement clean-lined pieces for a distinctly modern, masculine feel. Lovely wall mirrors enhance the sense of space, and subdued white-framed Harland Miller artworks add subtle contrast. The luxurious Sferra linens dress comfortable beds. In-room features include iHome clock radios, free Wi-Fi, and Samsung flat-screen TVs with cable channels. Minibars are nicely stocked with gourmet options, but the prices are extortionate. Usual hotel trimmings include magazines, safes, irons, ironing boards, hairdryers, and umbrellas. Layouts increase in size with category -- the Sixty Loft spans an expansive1800 square feet, but even the most basic option (Queen Superior Room), coming in at 300 square feet, is spacious by NYC standards. Suites offer a choice of separate living areas, and bi-level loft layouts, and some come with terraces and sweeping city views. Large bathrooms are dressed to impress in chocolate brown marble with white mosaic marble floors, big pedestal basins, shower/bath combos, individual Ren toiletries, and super comfortable Sferra robes that are hard to leave behind. Large windows let in lots of natural light, even in lower category rooms, which is a rarity for NYC, and some rooms (particularly higher levels) enjoy local area or city views. Rooms seem to be well protected from any street noise, but hallway activity and music from the rooftop bar can cause disturbances. 

Features

A restaurant, three bars (one rooftop), a stylish lounge-like lobby, and free Wi-Fi

While oozing hipness and sophistication via its three bars and restaurant, SIXTY SoHo is low on extras -- banking on the incredible location to keep guests happy and entertained. The restaurant and two stylish bars pretty much comprise the features on offer here. Located on the ground floor -- with indoor and outdoor terrace seating -- Bistrot Leo serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a focus on Italian fare. Located behind the lobby, The Gordon Bar offers a full bar and snacks and a choice of bar or lounge seating. Rooftop bar, A60, is open seasonally, with incredible views across the city. Twenty-four-hour room service is available. The hotel doesn't have a business center, but it provides printing and faxing services at the front desk to guests who need them. Located on the second floor, the lobby serves as a sleek lounge-like area with plenty of tables and elegant lounge settings for guests to work, read the free daily New York Times, or peruse one of the many coffee table books that decorate the space. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the hotel.
