Located in the tallest building of the Lower East Side, CitizenM Bowery  (owned by the Dutch brand CitizenM) is the world’s tallest modular hotel, being over 74 m high.

There are 300 rooms available, spread over 19 floors, compact and comfortable, with king size beds, dream showers and large windows that allow you to enjoy a view of New York.

The CitizenM Bowery Hotel is furnished with an eclectic mix of contemporary art, photographs and objects made by local artists.

Citizens of the Bowery, installation by Christelle de Castro

The external façade is characterized by Christelle de Castro’s Citizens of the Bowery: a permanent installation in which 180 black and white portraits of the inhabitants of the area “look out” of the 180 windows. A celebration of the city and its diversity.

Moxy Chelsea


Since March 2019, the heart of the Chelsea Flower Market hosts a hotel that pays tribute to the Flower District: Moxy Chelsea, of the Moxy Hotels chain owned by Marriott International.

Refined and fun, Moxy Chelsea reinvents a urban jungle through botanically-inspired design with an Italian touch, expressed by the gastronomic proposals entrusted to the world-renowned restaurateur Francesco Panella (owner of Antica Pesa, the legendary trattoria based in Rome and Brooklyn).

Putnam & Putnam Flower Shop

At the entrance of the hotel, at street level, is the exclusive Putnam & Putnam Flower Shop, a “botanical library” with lush flower boxes suspended on a 4 m wall.

Reception Moxy Hotel

Just beyond the flower shop, the sign “MEET / GREET” invites guests to reach the reception desk. Check-in desks feature four butcher’s tables suspended from the 3 m high ceiling, a reference to the nearby Meatpacking District.

Conservatory, atrium lobby of the Moxy Hotel

On the second floor is the lobby, designed by  Rockwell Group. A space where you can relax, socialize or work, thanks to different multipurpose areas that change depending on the time of the day. In the evening, the Conservatory, the lobby atrium, becomes a sophisticated cocktail lounge.

Feroce Cafè

At the Moxy Hotel you will also find the bar, restaurant and café of the Italian brand Feroce: dishes on the menu are prepared with Italian products.

Fleur Room

On the 35th floor, you will find the Fleur Room, the rooftop lounge with 360-degree panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline, with glass walls that, once lowered, transform the lounge into an open-air veranda.

King Room

The 349 rooms of the Moxy Hotel, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, offer innovative design solutions aimed at making the most of the space. In all three room types (King, Double / Double and Quad Bunk), furniture, including a desk and a suitcase chair, can be folded up and hung when not in use.
