We treated ourselves to a night at Soho House on our last night in New York. There are a couple of houses in New York but this one had treatments and you definitely need a massage after the amount of steps you’re gonna do.
The location is great and one of my preferred areas of New York. It’s in the Soho/Meat Packing district area. Everything in the Hotel was very Soho House and has all the usual great things you’d expect to find. Nice food and drink, super relaxed vibes. Gorgeous interiors, lovely friendly and helpful staff. One thing to note, the hotel was cashless which is fine but I hadn’t realised and had cash for things.
Roof top seating, dining and pool all with great views of the city. The pool is heated so can be used all year round. We weren’t brave enough to get undressed to get in though. A really great area for sitting and chilling.
We went for the smallest and cheapest room because you know, not made of money. It was huge, beautiful and we thought we had somehow gotten an upgrade (we hadn’t) The only thing that would of made it 10/10 would have been a bath but we knew it didn’t have one and standard rooms don’t ever tend to. As usual stocked with all the Cow Shed treats. It’s heaven and there are always minis you can take with you to keep your Cow Shed dreams going. That said we had an unfortunate situation where it sounded like a rubbish truck picking up all the rubbish from about 4am so noisy. Not the hotels fault but something to mention. It was more noticeable I think because the Hoxton Williamsburg was super quiet.
Can’t go wrong with a massage at Cow Shed, honestly I’ve never had a bad one. They know how to do firm and get in at your tension, exactly how I like it. They know all the nice touches, pick your oil, music etc. It’s brilliant.
I do have a habit of not reading things properly, I did think Cow Shed Spa meant an actual spa however it didn’t. It didn’t actually say anything other than treatments so that was daft of me.
It was a great stay despite the miss reading about the spa and the early wakeup from the noise outside. I always think it’s good to mention these things though. I would definitely stay again and would love to try out Dumbo house too, the views of Brooklyn Bridge look insane.
Fun extra, they have a photo booth on the top floor which is a nice touch for a bit of silliness.
Soho House Barcelona is still my favourite house so far but this one is great non the less. We are slowly working our way round, I can’t wait to stay at more.
