Concierge.com's insider take:

This tall glass box looms symbolically and literally over the changing neighborhood of the Lower East Side, where the rundown streets of tenements that once housed Eastern European immigrants are now home to scores of cutting-edge boutiques, bars and cafés—not to mention a Starbucks. The design here is in sync with the area's other new tenants: monochromatic and modern, with floor-to-ceiling transparent walls that allow the city streets to become part of the design. If you're not careful, they also allow you to become part of the view for your neighbors, particularly in rooms on the lower floors. For shy types, there are wraparound curtains and opaque plastic panels that can be affixed to the window. All 110 rooms have Swedish Tempur-Pedic mattresses and deep Japanese soaking tubs. In the Owner's Suite, the tub is placed directly against the glass bathroom wall for a corner panoramic view. The triplex penthouse is the suite of choice for visiting Gen X and Gen Y celebrities, although the true party room might be 184—it has a shower large enough for 10. No questions asked.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
A 21-story green-glass tower soaring above a sea of worn-brick low-rises, the Hotel on Rivington blends into Manhattan's Lower East Side about as well as a spaceship in a cornfield. But what's incongruous outside is pure genius within: Every exterior wall has floor-to-ceiling windows, affording sweeping views—toward the Empire State Building in one direction, the Brooklyn Bridge in the other—from the lobby bar, the beds, and even the showers. The 110 accommodations are perfectly comfortable and come with nifty touches (automated curtains, a maxed-out minibar, and, in some, Japanese soaking tubs), although the decor is so minimalist that it might be mistaken for thriftiness. At press time, the hotel was a work-in-progress—the restaurant hadn't yet opened and slipups were not uncommon. The neighborhood may still be rough around the edges, but hopefully the Hotel on Rivington won't be for much longer.—2005 Hot List

When to go: Rates are lower in summer, but the city is at its prime in the fall.
