A60 at Sixty Soho is Open Once More

Where: 60 Thompson Street [map], New York, NY, United States
July 16, 2015 at 1:23 PM | by | ()

Sixty Soho has undergone a full renovation from its days as the modelizing, Page Six-worthy 60 Thompson Hotel into a more mature, sophisticated spot boasting a "no-fuss approach."

While we've virtually squired you around the guest rooms and the lobby's Gordon Bar, Sixty just finished the final touches for the Sessanta ground-floor, all-day restaurant, serving coastal Italian cuisine which opens out to the Thompson Street sidewalk for al fresco dining.

The very last piece of the Sixty experience to be unveiled is A60, the hotel's famed and intimate rooftop terrace, only accessible for hotel guests and specially invited, card-carrying members. There has to be a little exclusivity left, especially when it comes to admiring this quintessential city view.

The terrace just opened yesterday and will be serving "small-plate edibles and comestible cocktails" daily from 4:30pm until "late." Not a member? Rates at the hotel start at $299 a night next weekend and that includes free WiFi, something you never would have seen in the 60T days.

Penthouse + obscenely expensive chocolate = sweet suite

That Donald Trump – he may have controversial political views but he doesn’t half know the value of chocolate. What is the value? $260 for 1.5oz, apparently.

Because only the finest chocolate will do for The Donald, Trump SoHo has launched a package celebrating what purports to be (and almost certainly is) the most expensive pure chocolate in the world: To’ak (us neither, it's from Ecuador).

The going rate for a 1.5oz bar of To’ak is $260, but the hotel is upselling it for its Sweetest Thing To’Ak Tasting Package. It’s really pretty sweet, if you let yourself entertain the idea of blowing half your annual salary in a night. You’ll get:

Trump SoHo Wants You to Cleanse Your Mind

The rooftop bar, where classes will take place

How are your chakras today? Did you eat your breakfast mindfully this morning? If you answered positively to both those questions, go forth and have a blessed day. If you didn’t, you may need a little help. And Trump SoHo wants to be the one to do it.

The hotel’s spa just launched its summer fitness program, and is starting meditation courses along with more standard classes like sunrise yoga and aqua aerobics. Craig Hunter is the man to lead the meditation – classes are 45 minutes long and will “walk participants through various forms of traditional and contemporary meditative practices”. Does that sound like a lot of faff and not much time to get deep into a meditation? Possibly, but this might be a chance to work out the style that works best for you, plus he will also include “creative cycles of breath work”.

The Mondrian Soho is No Mo', Literally. Introducing the NoMo Soho Luxury Hotel (UPDATED)

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 9 Crosby Street [map], New York, NY, United States, 10013
April 6, 2015 at 12:45 PM | by | ()

A while back we gasped when we heard that the Mondrian Soho, due to a litany of problems, would essentially be no mo'. (Meaning, no more.) And now, thanks to its new owners, that day has come--except there's a twist we did not expect.

The Mondrian Soho has been officially rebranded into the NoMo Soho Luxury Hotel. #NotAprilFools

Here is the official announcement for the now independent luxury hotel:

A Partnership between ASRR Capital, Alex Sapir and Rotem Rosen’s publicly traded Israeli Company, and Gerard Guez has announced the launch of a new independent luxury property, NOMO SOHO. Formerly known as the Mondrian SoHo and located at 9 Crosby Street in Downtown Manhattan, NOMO SOHO, which is in the process of transitioning management, will pay homage to its historic neighborhood while bringing a distinctively modern hospitality experience to Manhattan.

As an abbreviation for “nostalgic + modern,” the term NOMO sits at the intersection of vintage and cutting edge, both associated with the style of its location. The property and its namesake celebrate the original spirit of the area—known for its artistic origins, cast iron architecture and cobblestone streets—while blending the culture and fashion of today’s digital age.

ICYMI, Gerard Guez is the founder of Buddha Bar restaurants, but he is also working hard as a hotelier, as evidenced by the Buddha Bar Hotel in Paris.

The 263-room hotel will now be a part of Preferred Hotels & Resorts new Lifestyle collection, while Graham Leslie, the hotel's chief executive and head of hospitality will oversee the relaunch of NoMo which will include new amenities, new programming, new partnerships and new restaurant and lounge menus throughout the year. But we don't think the guest rooms will be touched. At least not right away.

Room rates at the NoMo SoHo (sorry, this still kills us) start at around $609 a night.

Tommie Hudson Square Accepting Reservations for October 1 (And There are Room Photos Too!)

You guys. Omg. tommie hotels, the eagerly anticipated millennial hotel brand from Commune Hotels, finally have a real deal hotel website up, complete with room photos of tommie Hudson Square, amenity descriptions and a working reservations system.

The website is currently taking reservations for October 1 starting at $245.67 a night, although the hotel could open earlier since "Summer 2015" was the last official word. But let's put the opening date specifics aside for a moment and focus on what's inside the hotel.

To show off what they are all about, tommie has the ultimate millennial video , which shows a millennial couple entering the room and doing a quick fall-onto-the-bed-together move. Then the dude, who has in-between beard growth and enviable hair pulled back into a low but short ponytail sits on the bed and strums a guitar while his hot girlfriend captures the results of her vision board on her iPhone. Then the two of them put on their jackets (he: a smart casual suit jacket; she: a to-die-for leather biker jacket) and head out the door. Not before checking themselves out in the mirror, though. Really, all that's missing is a selfie photo shoot.

After a bunch of clicking, you'll finally get to the room amenities and room descriptions for the tommie Hudson Square property, although we suspect the features will be present in other tommie hotels, especially the one that's planned for NYC's NoMad nabe.

Here's what you can expect in the room at tommie:

At These Prices, Every Hotels Are Within Everybody's Reach

When we first got our hands on pictures of Every Hotels, the new brand for Glh Hotels, we weren’t too impressed - that decor? Fine, but hardly millennial-sharp.

Did we speak too soon? Because this review in the Mail Online seems pretty blown away by the first property in Piccadilly.

As we said before, they’ve souped up the amenities – so there are complimentary (non-alcoholic) minibars, blazing fast WiFi, Hypnos (ie great) beds and that infernal, ubiquitous Nespresso machine in every room.

Empty plates at the Ten Room, just waiting to be filled with your home-brought food

Open kitchens and chef’s tables? Over. The latest idea in hotel restauranting? Get the guests to bring their own ingredients.

The Ten Room at Café Royal, which, to be honest, we haven’t heard much about since it opened to rather disastrous reviews, has just announced a Bring Your Own Ingredient menu, in which you literally bring what you want them to cook.

Hotel art: it’s sometimes expensive, usually exclusive, and normally kept well within the hallowed lobby walls.

Not so at the James New York, which has just unveiled a mural on its façade on Sixth Avenue. Created by Paul Wackers, a Brooklyn artist (below), and done in conjunction with the trendy Grey Area art boutique, “Slow Dance and the Daylight” is the first external artwork for any of the James properties.

First Look: The Gordon Bar at SIXTY SoHo

Last week, we brought you a sneak peek of the Sixty SoHo’s new look and mentioned the recent opening of its new bar, The Gordon Bar. Here, now, are the details on Manhattan’s newest watering hole.

The Gordon Bar is just off the second-floor lobby and reception area of the hotel. Like the lobby, the feel here is cozy but swank. The focal point on one end of the room is a fireplace bookended by glass shelves with knickknacks and potted plants. In front of that is a small glass coffee table with art books, around which are clustered armchairs and a plush loveseat in nice communal seating area.

Back in September, we reported on the Sixty SoHo's sexy new look with a quick hit list of before and after photos from its recent (and somewhat ongoing) renovation.

Now we've gone inside the hotel to get a first-hand look at some of the renovated rooms, the redone second-floor lobby and reception area, and new The Gordon Bar, which opened at the end of November.

First Kanye, Now Karl Takes Over The Mercer Hotel

Way, way, way back before Kanye West turned into one-half of Kimye, he once semi-permanently lived at Soho's ultra cool Mercer Hotel. He then later hooked up The Mercer star with tickets to his concert. An employee even wrote in to tell HotelChatter just how nice Kanye was to them.

We wonder if Uncle Karl will be just as nice.

Page Six reports that fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has taken over three floors of the hotel while he's in town to celebrate his item for Louis Vuitton--a $175,00 punching bag emblazoned with LVs. Hmmm...we also can't help but wonder if he's looking to The Mercer for ideas for his next hotel project?

While regular guests were apparently turned away because of Lagerfeld's presence, the good news is he won't be in town forever. Rooms are still sold-out at the hotel but they will open back up on Thursday...for $750 a night, before tax.

Before and After: Sixty Soho Shows Off The Sexy Sixty Style

We love hotel renovations nearly just as much as we love new hotels. But what we really love about hotel renovations is seeing the transformation that happens when an old, tired and lackluster room gets a modern makeover and transforms into new, spiffed-up, stylish guest room. Or put more simply, we love comparing the Before and After.

Sixty Soho, formerly known as 60 Thompson, is the flagship of the newly formed Sixty Hotels collective from the original Thompson Hotels founders, led by Jason Pomeranc. But now that the hotel is no longer a Thompson, it was time to change up the look.

So Sixty enlisted Tara Bernerd & Partners, a London-based interior architecture and design to six, er, sex up the 97-guestrooms as well as the lobby and lobby bar. Here's what the rooms at 60 Thompson used to look like. Keep reading to see the new and improved Sixty Soho...
