Although the Howard Johnson Manhattan Soho uses ‘SoHo’ in their name (and the SoHo HoJo is fun to say!) the hotel’s location is more accurately described as Chinatown. This Howard Johnson is a new hotel constructed in 2012, and is located at 5 Allen Street. See the location on Google Maps.
The rates for most nights are well under $300. We spotted rates in July that were just $212 a night.

There have been a few new hotels constructed in Chinatown recently (the Wyndham is another) and they provide real value for budget-minded travelers. There is subway access nearby to get to you other parts of the city, plus there are numerous bargain dining options available in the Chinatown/Little Italy area.
