Mad hotel construction on the Lower East Side is not looking like slowing down any time soon: projects currently in the works include the promised-to-finally-open-soon 180 Ludlow, Peter Poon Architects' skyscraping Hotel Bowery, and what will be the city's second CitizenM at 185 Bowery. While most offerings down on the LES skew hip, it is somewhat comforting to hear that good old Holiday Inn's newish property, the Holiday Inn NYC - Lower East Side has been consistently selling out since opening earlier this year.
A HotelChatter tipster sent us our first photos from inside the Bowery Hotel.
These photos take a look at a sixth floor suite, which as you can see above, affords guests a view of the East Village. Bet you never thought that view would become sought after did you? Is it actually sought after? Guess that is to be determined.
Either way, the Bowery Hotel officially entered soft opening this past weekend--three floors of rooms are open for business, rates, as we told you last week, are $245 at the moment, but be aware, Sean MacPherson can scrap those introductory rates at any time.
Our tipster added this:
I also wanted to let you know, I stayed at the bowery hotel all weekend and it was awesome, the views are sick, and everyone I gave a tour to had their jaws drop at the sight of the hotel lobby and rooms. The bars and restaurant won't be open for about 6 more weeks.
The long-awaited opening of the Bowery Hotel has finally arrived. I recently had a mini-tour and can say that the photos in this month's article Vanity Fair spread doesn't even do it justice. It's really quite stunning, and the views are amazing. Not just in the penthouses or suites - but from plenty of rooms in the hotel. The building sits high on Bowery and Great Jones - providing an unobscured view of the city from several rooms with a terrace. With a full staff of suit-clad doormen and front desk reception, I expect it to be quite a shiny bauble on a block not even considered partially pretty
Oh and guess what, looks like they are taking reservations starting, like now.
We were able to go through the booking process and get a Bowery Queen, with oversized factory windows, for $245.00 a night.
Guessing these are opening rates, so no telling how long they will be available for.
Obviously, anyone who stays should send us details.

[Update: The Bowery Hotel is set to open in March--that would be next month, which is the start of spring, not summer.]
The Curbed dubbed Tower of Bowery, aka the Bowery Hotel, is everywhere these days.
Vanity Fair recently published a piece on Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson's (creators of the Maritime Hotel) newest LES hotel.
The VF story chronicles the history of the Bowery area--from skid row to home of the New Museum of Contemporary Art.
Oh, and did you notice this tidbit:
Goode and MacPherson (who are also partners with the editor of this magazine in the Waverly Inn)
Looks like the transparency craze has even hit Vanity Fair, which is cool.
Back to the Bowery Hotel, here is what you need to know at this point:
·Almost every one of the 135 rooms has an open view.
·Several rooms have huge terraces.
·The lobby has dark wood paneling, vaguely Art Deco
·Gemma, will be the Italian restaurant at the front of the hotel.
·The photos in the VF piece are pure brochureware, but those pillows sure look nice.
