The Bowery Hotel
If it's good enough for Gigi Hadid, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart… The embodiment of gritty chic, this place started out as the far more prosaic Dry Dock Savings Bank, designed by architect Leopold Eidlitz in 1875. Demolished in 1954 and replaced with a gas station, part of which has been retained - hence the "1954" on the corner parapet - the Bowery has been dazzling the New York in-crowd since 2007. Capturing the essence of bohemian apartment living, this is a stay for those who appreciate moody lighting, gothic styling and prime people-watching - the in-house Gemma restaurant has seen more than its fair share of gossip in its day.
