My family stayed here for the second time in May '11 and booked adjoining rooms on the second floor. It's a fun place, great for celeb-spotting (Karl Lagerfeld this time, Sean Penn and Courtney Love last time we came), and the location is great in the heart of SoHo, but we noticed a few signs of wear in our room:...

Very nice rooms with nice little extras. The Swedish schampo was à nice touch. Candy from Dean&Deluca in the minibar was extremly good.

The Mercer is without doubt hip, however, for the price I would have expected better. The rooms are fun, the bathrooms very, very cool. I was a little upset to have deliberately booked a room with a bath-tub (the big ones for sharing).. and got a shower instead. The staff were a bit put out when I asked to move,...

The location is fantastic, the rooms are small for the big price. The staf is nice, but nothing far from normal. I had ants in my bathroom... and unless I got an extremelly good deal I wouldn't go back.

A rare mix of class and cool at the same place. Not painfully cool like so many others that try to pull off the boutique hip scene. Overall feel is very relaxing but still great for people watching .... have breakfast our lounge mid day in receptiopn area and you will see all types. Rooms are very well laid out...

The Mercer is definitely one of my favourites to stay when I am in New York, love the simple and bright rooms, very timeless. My recent stay did not disappoint and the service was very good as usual. Will definitely keep coming back.

The Mercer is a unique hotel. Lobby and common spaces are relaxed and splendid; rooms are spacious and extremely refined. In-room amenities are too many to list! Room service is from the Mercer Kitchen: top quality. Staff is great and very helpful and you really feel at home. Interior design is great: up to date but still cosy and with...

Recenly had multiple day stay at the Mercer and they were outstanding. They have a very high maintenance clientele and the staff was responsive and handled any issues with grace and poise. One small issue when I went into the bathroom upon checking in had dirty towels on floor, but the service recovery was prompt and sent botle of wine....

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
