Last month I had the pleasure of staying at the new 60 Thompson in the Lower East Side. Now to be honest I hated the location. After all, who enjoys the Lower East Side? Despite the long cab rides, however, the location happened to be a minor detail... I'm thankful that New York cabs take credit cards these days. The hotel itself was trendy, obviously, but more importantly the rooms were very reasonable priced and spacious -something which rarely happens in the city. I would definitely recommend the hotel for a weekend getaway. I smiled when I saw this (along with one another article) on the W website.
