At the very last second Zack and I decided to stop in New York on our way to Europe, which ever so conveniently aligned itself with the notoriously chaotic New York Fashion Week.
I found Arlo Hotels on Instagram (you never know where those stalk sessions will lead you) just a few days before we were flying to NYC. A few days later we found ourselves in just about the cutest little pocket of NYC, Soho, at the cutest little hotel, The Arlo Soho. We stayed in the Queen City Terrace room, which is about 50% room and 50% terrace (much to our delight as the weather was still summery, warm and terrace appropriate).
The Arlo Soho is not only in a perfect location, it’s a brand new (1 year old) beautifully designed micro hotel. The decor is so tasteful and minimal, and though the rooms are quite small, they feel cozy and have a very modern “New York” feel, with clever storage solutions to make up for their size. Most of the time we spent in our room at Arlo we were either sleeping after fully exhausting ourselves with Fashion Week festivities, or hanging out on the terrace and listening to the energy of the city below us (not to mention the terrace is very Instagram-worthy). Wine on the rooftop of Arlo Soho is also a must, plus if you need any workspace there is the most trendy (also gram-worthy) interior work / living spaces downstairs. Oh, and dinner in the Arlo courtyard is actually as pretty (and yummy) as it looks on Instagram stories.
For anyone who plans on spending a little more time out and about in NYC rather than cooped up in a hotel room, but wants a cute clean and Instagrammable hotel with a very comfortable bed to crash in at the end of the day, The Arlo Soho is an amazing and affordable NYC hotel.
