Arlo SoHo is a youthful hotel in both name and spirit. The hotel has a laid-back, social vibe that encourages guests to get out of their rooms and explore. To facilitate this, all guests have free use of Arlo bicycles, day and night. There are also plenty of activities at the hotel: sunrise yoga on the rooftop, Tuesday poker nights, and jazz nights with local musicians, designed to get guests to mingle.
The hotel embraces a “micro lifestyle” approach. Translation – very small rooms (150 sq. ft.) ideal for single travellers or couples who are not shy around each other. The rooms are thoughtfully designed with high-quality essentials: an excellent wooden headboard that wraps around the bed, high-thread count sheets, space-saving reading lights that snap into place, and a steamer in the bathroom, are just some details that make the rooms hospitable despite their size.
The hotel offers expansive public spaces where you can find guests nestled in corners working on their laptops. Thanks to the hotel’s policy of free and open wifi throughout the hotel and comfortable, tasteful chairs and couches to lounge on, a distinctive “co-work” vibe permeates the space. Catering to the needs of its guests, as well as the downtown set who may drop by, Arlo SoHo has excellent, fast wifi connectivity throughout the property (Arlo SoHo has twice the number of routers than most hotels of this size). After a hard day of work or play, guests can mingle with locals on the rooftop bar, which boasts breathtaking views of the surrounding skyline. Even during the day, millennials mill about, sipping on beachy cocktails in the surf-themed bar.
From its bodega in the lobby, which is open 24/7, to its accessible, open public spaces, Arlo SoHo is an inclusive, approachable hotel that whispers: come on over.
