There's no uniformed doorman, bustling lobby, or even a front desk at this Noho property. In fact, there's barely even a sign outside. Instead, guests book over the phone, buzz the roving attendant from the front door, then complete check-in in their rooms. Owners Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson — who between them have opened notable hot spots like the Waverly Inn and the Park — wanted this converted 1840s brownstone to feel more like a pied-à-terre than a hotel, so each of the fifteen spacious, hardwood-floored rooms is individually decorated with antique furnishings, stocked with books and magazines, and graced by 500-thread-count linens. All accommodations have working fireplaces, HDTVs, free WiFi, and bathroom goodies from C.O. Bigelow Apothecary; some enjoy kitchenettes, private balconies, and shared garden spaces. Complimentary tea and coffee can be found in the rooms, wine is proffered by an attendant at check-in, and room service can be ordered from neighborhood restaurants like next door's BBar. An on-call concierge can arrange all the usual activities; just know that he's not available 24/7, so for the most part, you're on your own.


Privacy and a no-hassle setup make this perfect for independent and low-maintenance travelers.

The building is four stories with no elevators or porters. There are no public reception, meeting, or lounge spaces.
