My daughter and I stayed at the Rivington the first week of this month. It didn't start out so promising. First of all, we thought the lighting was too dim. We could hardly see anything! After a day and night, I finally figured out that there is a tiny switch next to each light switch, which is the dimmer. It just had to be turned up. It would be nice if the bellhop would show this to new guests.
Then, the service was slow to nonexistant. Our refrigerator stopped working, and the staff said no one could fix it until late the next morning. They did put some food we had bought in the hotel kitchen refrigerator.
The second day our room was still not made up when we returned late in the day. As we were waiting in the hotel lobby for our room to be cleaned, we were greeted by the new general manager, Marcanthony. He listened to our complaints, said he would take care of things, and comped us breakfast for the next morning (which was delicious, by the way).
After that, everything improved 100 percent. Service was immediate, our refrigerator was fixed, and we set about really enjoying the hotel. The beds have temper pedic mattresses, which are wonderful. My daughter's favorite thing is the steam shower room, and there is a huge tub as well. The room is spacious.
As for the street noise, there is some. We were on the third floor. It was only really bad on Saturday night. I had earplugs, so, no problem. The rest of the week, it isn't that bad.
I would recommend this hotel, and I'm pretty sure we will stay here again on our next visit to NYC. The location is great, if you love the LES, which we do.
