In case you missed it, micro-boutique hotels are the latest fad, and we at Travel Curator happen to be obsessing over these doll-sized rooms that are so inviting and homey Arlo Hotel SoHo is the perfect example and we couldn’t be more in love.

A stay here is pretty much what we imagine living in an urban cabin would be like. Rooms are minimalist in design complete with innovative storage systems (wall pegs replace closets, for example) and flourishes of Scandinavian whimsy. Be sure to book yourself into one of the City Terrace Rooms because they come with patios and chaise lounges. Oh, and did we mention these rooms come with an outdoor shower?!

Located at the intersection of Greenwich, SoHo and TriBeCa, Arlo Hotel SoHo is perfect for a staycation or for a quick trip to NYC. Bike along the waterfront (and maybe take a stop at Grand Banks) or through the neighborhood on one of the hotel’s Priority Bikes.

After a tiring day of shopping in SoHo, meandering along the beautiful Greenwich Village brownstones, or casually day-drinking in TriBeCa, be sure to take in the stunning views of the Hudson River from the rooftop bar and soak up all the city that never sleeps has to offer.
