Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal Street) is home to a vibrant art scene, sophisticated restaurants, and of course, a famous film festival. The neighborhood, which was once the home to industrial warehouses and factories, has transformed into one of the wealthiest in Manhattan, where international celebrities and creatives keep loft apartments for their visits to New York. Choose from these hotels in Tribeca for your next trip downtown.
Formerly the Tribeca Grand, The Roxy is full of character. Named after the palatial 1920s movie theater – and 1990s nightclub of the same name – this hotel is a playground for travelers looking for entertainment. It houses a subterranean jazz club, Django, as well as an Art Deco-inspired movie theater that specializes in foreign and independent films. On the ground floor, Paul’s Cocktail Lounge, an intimate bar with speakeasy vibes, is helmed by Paul Sevigny (Chloe’s brother) and attracts an international (celebrity) crowd.
This super-stylish hotel attracts creative types from all over the world. The Frederick artfully weaves its vintage sensibility into the modern and minimalist design of its guest rooms with exposed white brick walls, elegant wallpaper and subway tile in the bathroom. While the rooms themselves do tend to be smaller, The Frederick more than makes up for it with its excellent location. Guests have easy access to major bus and subway lines that make it convenient to explore all that Tribeca and downtown Manhattan have to offer.

The Greenwich Hotel is synonymous with downtown luxury and sophistication. Indulge in their sexy underground Japanese pool and spa, and have a drink on vine-covered terraces overlooking a lush, tranquil courtyard. Rich textiles, gorgeous light from long casement windows, and French balconies give the rooms an inviting European feel. The penthouse, whose design is influenced by the neighborhood and the Japanese Wabi aesthetic, can be booked for a cool $15,000 a night.
The Duane Street Hotel sits on a fashionable street in the heart of Tribeca and offers unique amenities such as pet services (including personalized dog bowls) and a complimentary bike sharing program for guests, complete with lock and helmet. Guest rooms are outfitted with black and white leather furniture and are suitable for leisure or business, as many also feature large working desks.
What the Sheraton lacks in unique style and design, it more than makes up for with their central location. It sits right on Canal Street and provides access to most major subway lines. The lobby is quite comfortable and modern, and the rooftop lounge provides an amazing vantage point to take in the Midtown skyline.
Kick back, relax, and live like a local at the Smyth Hotel. Amazing penthouse suites are available for apartment-style living with entertaining areas both indoors and on the outdoor terrace. Sample a seasonal cocktail and some speakeasy vibes at Evening Bar, or take your pick from any of the trendy drinking holes along West Broadway.
The Conrad’s location in Battery Park City, just past the West Side Highway from Tribeca, offers guests stunning views of the Manhattan skyline to the east, and the Hudson River and New Jersey to the west. Its cavernous lobby, adorned with a 10-story “Loopy Doopy” art installation by Sol LeWitt, is a sight to behold. Steps from One World Trade Center, the hotel is close to major tourist attractions. The rooftop bar offers great backdrops for Instagram posts (e.g., the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor to the south).
