Arlo SoHo Rewards Travelers for Giving Back


Meet Arlo Soho: a Big Apple property that's quaint, but big on style and giving back. 

Arlo Soho, nestled conveniently in between Soho, TriBeCa, and The West Village, is a Kindness Maker when it comes to supporting the local community and its guests. Following the innovative “tiny hotel” trend, we love how Arlo’s guestrooms are intentionally quaint, while the common areas sprawl, encouraging social interaction rather than tucking away in your room (although we couldn’t blame you for that, either; sleeping quarters here are impressive).

Arlo SoHo Rewards Travelers For Giving Back

One way its community kindness unfolds is through its commitment to support local businesses, such as Joe Coffee, a local family-owned coffee purveyor which roasts its beans in NY. Its baristas serve in the lobby Bodega 24-hours a day.

Arlo’s staff uniforms were designed by its neighbor down the block—Miller’s Oath, a bespoke tailor offering handcrafted custom clothing made in the USA.

Another kind factor we love is its offering of complimentary bike rides through its collaboration with Priority Bicycles, custom designed bikes from a locally owned shop.

But perhaps one of its biggest strides towards a kinder city includes its partnership with local charity, Henry Street Settlement. Opening the doors of opportunity (for 124 years!), Henry Street, a top-rated, 4-star charity on Charity Navigatorworks to enhance human progress for Lower East Side residents and New Yorkers, through the arts, social services, and health care programs.

Why is it important?

Of the approximately 45 million Americans living at or below the poverty line, nearly three million live in the state of New York. Kids born into poverty are likely to remain in the cycle, and the longer this occurs, the more, increasingly difficult it becomes to break free. Without access to quality education, basic healthcare, and social services, the so-called promise of the American Dream grows steadily out of reach–often landing them on the street, or worse.

How do they do it? 

As an agency of neighborhood-based social change, Henry Street offers a broad range of social programs, catering to health, employment, education, housing, recreation, the arts, and senior services. Such services address an individual’s entire life cycle, from childhood to old age. The 60,000+ New Yorkers whom this benefits each year leave the Settlement equipped with tools to help them succeed in life, providing fulfillment, friendship, support, empowerment, and a deep connection to the community that helped them get back on their feet.
