Amazing views, great location. Rooms look exactly like the pictures

Amazing location and beautiful spacious (for NYC) rooms. If you don't need a fancy lobby or common area this is a great hotel. So much good food and things to do within a five minute walk.

Great area for nightlife. The rooms were subpar for the cost. Bathroom toilets were plastic and had an outhouse feel.

Close to a lot of places we wanted to go and the staff was just outstanding.

I always stay at this hotel when I’m in the city. The rooms are spacious and modern and the bathrooms are the best around.

For the price, not worth it. Had a good view and shower. Staff were blase.

This was by far the best hotel I've said in in all of lower manhattan. The room was HUGE compared to the typical cruise sized rooms soho has to offer. Although the bathroom was not as pictured here on orbitz (which is what I was looking forward to most- that tub...) I was still extremely happy with my stay. Ordered room service twice and it was quick and not crazy expensive. The robes were the coziest and the hotel itself was big, modern and very clean. Would absolutely stay there again!

Only stay one night, but great experience. Rooms are spacious very odd for New York especially in LES.

Great stay, I loved this hotel. Large room, with a living room area and a large bathroom. The shower was amazing, lots of space, glass window. Lots of space, lots of comfort... King bed was perfect, comfy bedding, sheets and comforter. The common area is great with couches and chairs to work, talk or wait. Courteous staff. Clean room. Free cookies every night. The only issue was the view: not that great, facing other buildings.

IT WAS GREAT! GREAT LOCATION & VIEW. MINI BAR & FRIDGE FULLY STOCKED BUT TOO EXPENSIVE

I was in NYC for business to attend the Architectural Digest Design Show and booked a room at the Hotel on Rivington for one night. My colleagues and I really enjoyed the staff and accommodations. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Upon arrival, we were given complimentary coffee and wine tickets. Later in the night, we were pleasantly surprised when a knock at the door delivered complimentary cookies. My only complaints are more aesthetic issues. 1. The all black, window-less bathroom proved very hard to get ready in. I'm a low-key woman with a minimal make-up routine, but even I couldn't see my complexion properly in the dark room. Lighting was very poor. An alternative to this moody bath, would be placing a mirror (instead of the art) at the desk in the room, which is next to the window and therefore provides great lighting. As an interior designer, aesthetics are important, but functionality is of greater importance. 2. The sheets were a bit rough, starchy and did not breathe well. I kept overheating all night, thus waking up multiple times and feeling restless instead of rested in the morning. Overall, my stay was great and I would recommend the Hotel on Rivington to friends, family and colleagues.

PROS: Ceiling to floor windows in the room. Large room. Pretty decor. AMAZING french toast room service. CONS: A ceiling to floor window IN THE BATHROOM that could not be covered. You had to turn on the hot water and wait until it fogged up slightly in order to use the toilet or shower in privacy. Super weird and not at all environmental. Another con is that there was someone's half-eaten plate of food in the mini-fridge when we arrived. It was shoved in there since there was no room to actually use the fridge since it was filled with overpriced beverages. We would have liked to use the fridge. I also didn't like that the room didn't have a peep hole. Considering that guests don't have to use a key card to use the elevator at night, the security didn't feel so great. I recently moved from NYC, so I'm not a scaredy cat, but it's never smart to open your door without checking who's there. My final irritation is that the room service menu listed incorrect hours so on three separate occasions when I tried to order dinner or lunch they were CLOSED. It was really frustrating since I was traveling for business and just wanted to relax. All in all, this hotel could be great but it just needs to fix a couple of things.

I stayed in the high corner king balcony room. The view was fantastic. The room was great and the staff was wonderful. The bathroom was amazing the only thing that I didn't like was that when youre taking a shower, the people above you, if theyre on the balcony, they would be able to look down and see you showering which is very uncomfortable.

I stayed at the Rivington which is off Essex the last weekend of June. If you are coming from LaGuardia Airport and take a cab or service all you need to do is come via the Williamsburg Bridge and head toward the hotel. Don't let them drive you all over town. Without traffic it is about a 17 minute ride. Also the hotel uses a private car service and we used it on the return to the airport. It was $45.00 for two people and a tip, totally worth it!!!! Just ask the front desk or the doormen and they will get a car reserved for you. Or call head to reserve for a pick up from the airport. I can say that entire staff I encountered (General Manager, The Front Desk, Servers & Bartenders in the Restaurant/Bar, Doormen and Housekeeping) there were the most helpful, friendly and sweetest group of people in the industry that I have dealt with. I was blown away with the Customer Service I received. I had the opportunity to interact with the General Manager, Dan and he treated me with utmost respect and understanding. Additionally, he personally made sure that I received a 100 resolution to my problem. The room was clean and modern with plenty of room and closet space!! Just needs brighter bulbs in the bathroom. Daily you can get free coffee or tea in the morning in the lobby bar and from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm they offer free wine as well. The breakfast in the restaurant was great, all cooked to order. In the late evening that area doubles as a nightclub. Not to worry, you do not hear a thing. We visited the bar in the evening and tried the appetizers and they were great and so were the drinks!! Take advantage of the rooftop there if you can, we tried but it was raining!! However the view is beautiful!!! Anything we asked for (extra towel, ice...) we received with in 5 minutes or less. Request the higher floors with the city view, it is beautiful. The much higher floors have terraces however they only have king size beds, no doubles. We had a higher floor, double, no terrace however beautiful views of the 1 World Tower/Observatory and the skyline. The hotel is in walking distance of many great places and things to see and do. If you like to walk, it is about a 4.2 mile walk to 9/11 Museum/Ground Zero. Walk through the neighborhoods and check out the shops and places to eat. We felt very safe. On Saturday for lunch we walked to Junoon, a great Indian Restaurant on West 24th Street and while walking there we passed Mario Batali's Eataly, check them out as well!! Great wine, great food, snacks and meals and you can eat on the patio!! Gall's is across the street from the hotel and they have good food for a quick lunch or dinner. There is Mexican Restaurant on Essex called Essex that was excellent. The chicken quesadilla's were huge, with nice flavorful chunks of chicken. Also visit the Economy Candy Store directly across the street from the hotel, very cute!! A great place to stay that I have been recommending to everyone!!

THE ROOM. We were surprised at how dark and narrow the hallways seemed. The room also seemed somewhat dreary to us. In a word, the room seemed soul-less. Perhaps we were expecting more roominess and brightness since we are from the midwest. THE UGLY. Our biggest shock came when we were curious about a door in the bathroom and opened it to find a VERY, VERY dirty, filthy furnace filter. We were NOT happy when we realized we were breathing such dirty air. We did report our find and hopefully the filter has been changed and everything has been cleaned. THE STAFF. The staff was amazing! Everyone was very courteous, helpful, friendly, and cheerful! They all seemed happy to be there! THE VIEW. We enjoyed being able to look out our windows and see the skyline of New York City. We were also able to see the sunset since our windows faced the west. CLEANLINESS. Everything was clean except the filter. Unfortunately, seeing the dirty filter is a huge factor in the way I will rate the hotel, and is not a reflection on the hard work done by the cleaning staff. If recommending this hotel to a friend, I would tell them to be sure and check the filter!
