The Mercer Hotel - Our Favorite Boutique Hotel in Soho, New York


  • Welcome to Soho, New York!  Drop off your bags at our favorite boutique hotel in the neighborhood, The Mercer Hotel and let's start exploring!

  • The Mercer Hotel was built in 1890 and is on the New York Landmark Preservation Commission - but has any modern amenity you would want.
  • While checking in, don't forget to speak to the concierge and make dinner reservations for tonight at the Mercer Kitchen they have the best comfort food - the burger is great and don't forget the mac and cheese!
  • Ask what is happening at the Public Theater and what's playing at Angelika, the neighborhood art house movie theater - you never know what you could see!

  • Le Mercerie is a ten minute walk from the hotel and is a great place to grab lunch - the smoked salmon is amazing! 
  • Shopping in Soho is fabulous - see what’s happening in the beauty world - within just a few blocks you can visit the clean stuff at Beautycounter the cool girls stop at Glossier and end up at Goop Lab for more clean beauty and wellness tips. 
  • Stop by Westbourne for a coffee - it is a great place to catch up with friends.
  • There are shops on every block of the neighborhood - from high-end designers, to names you would see at the mall, there is something for everyone!
  • After an afternoon of shopping, nothing sounds better than cocktails!  It’s happy hour and there are many options - we love The Blond with friends or if you are going solo try Le Coucou- the space is beautiful.
  • After drinks, stop by the MOMA shop before dinner at Mercer Kitchen.  The MOMA Shop has a great selection of gifts for the art lover in your life. 
  • The restaurant is always buzzing at Mercer Kitchen - the energy is so fun and the food so delicious!  
  • While the Library at the Mercer is a great place for an after-dinner drink, if you are looking to step back outside there’s nothing like a nightcap at Bathalzar.  This French brasserie has been a landmark in Soho for years and is always busy.  Grab a seat at the bar and order yourself one last drink before calling it a night. 
  • Rise and Shine!  Soho is amazing in the morning - its so quiet!  Take advantage of it and grab breakfast at one of these great choices - Sant Ambrose, Jack's Wife Freda or grab a quick bite before shopping again at Chobani Cafe. 
  • It’s checkout time at the Mercer Hotel - don’t forget to leave a tip for the housekeepers and tip the bellman too.

  • We hope you enjoyed your stay at our favorite boutique hotel in Soho and see you soon at one of our other favorite places from Hotel Beauty Box!
