About this Hotel

Price From $189

'Hood The West Village, a downtown area with tree-lined streets and no skyscrapers. Landmarks include the Village Vanguard jazz club and chef Mario Batali's Babbo.

First Impression The English countryside meets the city in these two dainty, 19th-century town houses.

The Rooms Each of the nine rooms has tasteful features; the Garden Room, for example, has green walls, exposed brick, and an adjoining outdoor garden. Bathrooms are private, whether en suite or adjacent to a room.

Plus Quiet and discreet, with no lobby or front desk, the Abingdon feels more like your own pad than a temporary stopover.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes, in all rooms. (There's no public lounge.)

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.
