With its 2,000-square-foot penthouse lofts, the Soho Grand, the first luxury hotel in SoHo, is still the most dramatic. Very much in the downtown spirit, these suites look like an art dealer's loft—cool and residential with one-of-a-kind pieces such as zinc screens and vintage chandeliers. The designer, Bill Sofield, quotes rock icon Lou Reed as one of his influences in choosing furnishings, undoubtedly a first. Pick the larger north-facing penthouse for the postcard skyline views. The other 367 rooms have been undergoing renovation—make sure you get one of the new ones—adding flat-screen TVs, expanded closets, and contrasting fabrics in browns and blues. Because the hotel's proprietors also own the pet company Hartz Mountain, cats and dogs have a good deal here, too—a selection of meals on the room service menu, walkers, sitters, and an array of toys at their disposal.
