“SoHo is a fine location - lively, fashionable and convenient – and the SoHo Grand was the first hotel built in SoHo for more than a century. Its 353 rooms include 10 suites and two penthouses. Although not more than 15 years old, the hotel has been constantly redesigned and brought up-to-date. The bedrooms are fairly modest in size and are conservatively decorated, but the public rooms and suites are lavish and display chic and imaginative design ideas. The Grand bar and lounge is known for its lively music scene in the evening. Not only does the hotel welcome visiting cats and dogs, but guests can ask for a complimentary goldfish to share their room until they leave. Privately owned, like its sister Tribeca Grand, and much loved by its owners.

“Positioned in downtown New York City’s most fashionable, exclusive neighbourhood, The Soho Grand Hotel offers much more than mere luxurious accommodations. The Soho Grand has become one of the most sought-after boutique hotels in New York. Its sleek exterior opens to neighbourhood-inspired décor, chic restaurants & lounges, unparalleled service, and lavish guest rooms. The hotel prides itself on being downtown’s iconic boutique hotel for travellers in addition to a dining & socializing destination, ideal for everything from nightlife, extended visits, and weekend New York getaways. Centrally located within New York City’s best downtown neighbourhoods, Soho Grand Hotel is steps from SoHo’s most sophisticated shops & restaurants, renowned art galleries, and luxe loft residences. SoHo's history is still evident in the raw spaces that were once factories and warehouses and have now been transformed into shops, restaurants, residences, and galleries. Similar to London’s Soho neighbourhood, SoHo New York has evolved from a grittier history into one of the city’s most stylish, sophisticated neighbourhoods. SoHo is undeniably downtown’s best place to shop, with names like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Yohji Yamamoto, Prada, Chanel, and more located throughout the area, in addition to specialty boutiques that give the area its unique character. Its history as artists’ refuge still lingers, but in the form of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Deitch Projects, and numerous renowned galleries. SoHo’s unparalleled offerings also extend to cuisine, with some of the finest dining options located in the area. Classics like Cipriani, Balthazar, and Blue Ribbon remain tried and true, while trendier places such as Bar Pitti, Indochine, and La Esquina draw crowds.
Owned and developed by Leonard and Emanuel Stern of Hartz Mountain Industries, our SoHo New York hotel opened its doors in August 1996; it was the first hotel to be constructed in the area in more than one hundred years. With the help of architect David Helpern and interior designer William Sofield, the Soho Grand has redefined accommodation in New York and consistently raised the bar with impeccable service, making it one of the finest luxury hotels New York has to offer.”
