The SoHo Grand was the area’s first boutique hotel in 1996. Elegant interiors such as the glass-bottle staircase designed by William Sofield echo the architectural heritage of the neighborhood. The Salon, affectionately dubbed “SoHo’s living room,” is playground for the social scene. In the summer, guests head to the The Yard to enjoy sunshine, parties, and the famous Grand Margarita. 353 rooms and suites offer luxuries from Egyptian cotton sheets to iPod docking stations.
