“Sister hotel to the SoHo Grand two blocks away. Some people say the Tribeca Grand is more hip, more laid back, cooler. Maybe. But both hotels emit the same kind of vibe. Music industry and fashion people come, setting the tone. A small cinema in-house is often used for pre-release screenings. And there is a lot of live music in the public rooms. The Grand’s fine atrium is the scene for a fabulous New Year’s Eve party. Parts of the hotel can be noisy (top floor near the lift machinery or lower floors near the bars) but the staff are well-trained and eager to help you enjoy your stay. This is downtown Manhattan as it ought to be.

“The TriBeCa area’s past lives as farmland and commercial & industrial districts gave way to struggling yet visionary artists who sought its large expanses of space for studios in the 70s and 80s. Since that time, the neighbourhood has become an oasis-like, exclusive residential area whose expensive lofts draw New York City’s wealthiest citizens. Downtown luminaries flock to TriBeCa’s cobblestone streets for its air of selectivity, its retail, dining, & nightlife options, and ideal location near some of downtown’s other popular neighbourhoods. TriBeCa is home to classic upscale restaurants like Nobu, Mr Chow, Bouley, and Chanterelle, resident favourites such as Bubby’s and The Odeon, and fashion’s finest brands, like Issey Miyake and Stephen Alan. The neighbourhood also has roots in independent filmmaking, hosting the Tribeca Film Festival each year in its multiple indie movie theatres.
When Tribeca Grand Hotel opened in May 2000, the hotel immediately distinguished itself from all of the other hotels in Manhattan. Its sleekly modern guest rooms, seductive Church Lounge, impeccable guest service, and sought-after location make Tribeca Grand the ultimate accommodation for a variety of pursuits. From romantic weekend getaways & holidays in New York to business trips & conferences, Tribeca Grand shows guests how to experience New York City like a true insider.”
