Standing between the sectors of high finance and high fashion, the Tribeca Grand Hotel is New York’s exclusive downtown getaway right in the epicenter of the urban universe. Of all the hotels New York has to offer, Tribeca Grand’s location is utterly unrivaled—the quiet cobblestone corner looks out upon one of the richest, most sought-after neighborhoods in downtown Manhattan, one that has long seduced celebrities and artists, financiers and the jet set. The only thing that might trump the beauty of the surroundings is Tribeca Grand’s own stunningly designed interior. The soaring central atrium opens to a fleet of luxurious guestrooms, the intimate Church Lounge, a premier cocktail bar and restaurant, and even a private film screening room—a New York luxury hotel the way only TriBeCa would have it.
Like the neighborhood itself, the Tribeca Grand Hotel is subtle yet luxuriously sleek—the hotel design is a mix of clean classic lines with bold punctuations of color and style. One of the top hotels New York has to offer, Tribeca Grand is hip without the flashy hype. The simple red brick façade decorated with signature cast-iron detailing was inspired by the materials that appear throughout the TriBeCa area. The hotel understands that taste is as much a question of well-articulated design as it is of location, and this explains why the ultimate New York luxury hotel fits so perfectly among its neighbors.
Inside, the feeling is tranquil and just a little bit decadent. The super-spacious central atrium, originally designed by Larry Bogdanow of Bogdanow Partners Architects, offers an airy vaulted core reminiscent of grand cathedrals as well as Hitchcockian mid-20th century public buildings like the old Penn Station or the Singer Building. A mix of mystery and lush precision defines the modern New York hotel, creating an atmosphere unparalleled in other New York City accommodations.
Recently reworked by designer William Sofield of Studio Sofield, the atrium plays host to one of the most happening scenes in the city—the downtown New York nightlife destination Church Lounge. Here lively organic colors in the vein of Frank Lloyd Wright serve as the perfect backdrop for leisurely drinks and late cocktail gatherings for both guests and New York natives. A true lifestyle hotel is as elegant in the day as it is seductive at night—a key ingredient of the Tribeca Grand atrium.
The hotel’s ultra-modern guestrooms work as cool counterparts to the warmth of the central atrium. Form certainly follows function, allowing for luxurious minimalist havens that are as much urban hideaways as places for work, leisure, and socializing.
