About Gem Hotel – SoHo, An Ascend Collection Hotel
The Gem Hotel – SoHo is ideal for budget-oriented travelers, and is located right on the border between the East Village and the Lower East Side, an area rich with Old World charm, funky boutiques and bohemian nightlife.
A few blocks east down Houston Street is Katz’s Deli. Open since 1888, Katz’s is the oldest delicatessen in New York City as well as the setting for the famous “I’ll have what she’s having” scene from When Harry Met Sally. On the next block is the Mercury Lounge, one of the best small rock clubs in the city and a launching pad for some of the most famous New York bands like the Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. A few blocks south of the Gem Hotel – SoHo is the larger Bowery Ballroom, perhaps the best music club in New York.
Learn about the Lower East Side’s immigrant history at the Tenement Museum on Orchard Street, take in the contemporary art scene at the New Museum on Bowery and Prince, or catch an off-Broadway show a few blocks further north at the Public Theater on Lafayette. To get uptown, simply hop on one of the numerous nearby subways.
Each of the Gem Hotel – SoHo’s simple yet comfortable 45 rooms comes equipped with standard amenities including free wired and wireless Internet access, flat-panel LCD televisions, complimentary bottled water upon arrival, shower gel and shampoo dispenser, cordless telephones, coffeemakers with Wolfgang Puck coffee, monogrammed bathrobes and hair dryers. After a long day sightseeing, relax in the hotel’s comfy beds, wrapped in crisp white lines. (Some rooms come equipped with a microwave and refrigerator.)
A friendly, helpful front desk attendant will greet you once you make your way to the small, bright lobby, which is one flight up from the street-level door. (An elevator is also available.) Weather details are listed on a chalkboard along with information on how to sign up for a walking tour of the city.
