This Soho institution is located slap bang in the middle of Soho, you can’t ask for a better location, or a better place to stargaze – just ask the scores of paparazzi lining the cobblestone streets outside this stylish boutique hotel.
The Mercer comes from the Andre Balzas stable of properties and is a sister hotel to the famed Hollywood ‘Chateau Marmont’ in LA and the ‘Raleigh’ in Miami. The Mercer is the hotel of choice during New York fashion week. The 75 loft-like rooms are dominated by big windows and high ceilings, decorated in neutral colours and adorned by luxuries that include 400-count Egyptian cotton sheets, flat screen TVs and in an array of in-room entertainment.
If your sole reason for going to New York is to shop, this is the place for you. New York’s finest selection of shops are steps away in every direction and the narrow streets and low-rise buildings make a nice change of pace from the soaring skyscrapers of uptown. Be sure to take advantage of the many street vendor tables set up on the sidewalks during the day. Some of the very latest accessories and fashions can be found here before this display of next season’s trends make their way to the rest of the world.
The basement restaurant and bar, with its sweeping staircase leading to a large room and an open-plan kitchen, is extremely popular with fashiohotel guests and trendy locals alike…and the pineapple mojito is a must. Just don’t make any early morning plans!
