As the oldest running hotel in the most storied metropolis in the world, The Sohotel has an undoubtedly rich and varied history. First known as The Westchester, The Occidental, The Pioneer, and now as the “Sohotel”, this landmark building has long been a fixture in the Bowery, operating as a stop for travelers as far back as there are written accounts. “The Bowery” refers to the neighborhood surrounding the boulevard in the scenic downtown area, but the road itself is actually the oldest thoroughfare in Manhattan, stretching roughly the entire distance of the island from North to South since Pre-Colonial times.

It is here that the earliest Dutch explorers settled, christening the township “New Amsterdam”, before it was ceded to the English and renamed “New York” following various upheavals during the Anglo-Dutch Wars. The Bowery also famously played host to General George Washington, as he arrived in New York to watch the final remaining British troops flee back to England in November of 1783 at the end of the Revolutionary War.


Taking its cue from history, The Sohotel celebrates its boutique features in the building’s exposed brick walls and cozy furnishing, all while showcasing a refined, modernized style in the lobby and common areas. With 100 recently renovated rooms, The Sohotel is charming and comfortable, with just enough flair to satisfy guests looking for a hip New York experience.
