Situated directly in the heart of Manhattan’s most eclectic and energetic neighborhood, at the corner of Mercer and Prince Street, The Mercer is the ultimate urban hotel.
Hotelier Andre Balaz has developed this Soho institution, creating a home away from home for celebrities, fashionistas, hip-hop artists, and savvy European travelers in the know.
With a distinct, minimalist, but low-key modern style, the main lobby doubles as a library and lounge, with a casual vibe and inviting leather and velvet seating. The Mercer is downtown’s ultimate see-and-be-seen spot, while also managing to maintain a sincere coziness that is otherwise hard to find in Manhattan.
You can dine in the lobby or in the legendary Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s kitchen downstairs, a spacious and open restaurant aptly called The Kitchen.
You’ll love the airy, loft-like ceilings, which make even the less spacious quarters feel roomier, and windows that open will remind you more of the Left Bank of Paris than the bustle of lower Manhattan.
Just steps from your door you will find the premier shopping in New York, with
Prada, Moncler and James Perse, to name only a few. Add the world-renowned art galleries and countless restaurants, and you’ll experience the full measure of luxury and style.
Since you won’t need to work hard to get around you may feel the need to work up a sweat. No problem! As a guest of The Mercer you can take advantage of day passes for the Soho Equinox, just two blocks away, for a workout or a yoga or pilates class.
If you can’t leave home without your best friend, The Mercer will provide all you could ever need to pamper your pooch, including a daily walking service and luxury dog bed, plus bowls and treats waiting for the lucky dog upon arrival.
For the unbeatable combination of impeccable service, enviable location, the blessing of the in-crowd and the comfort of home, there is no better choice. Welcome to The Mercer.
