Expert review of Tribeca Grand Hotel
When it opened it was the only hotel in Tribeca (now there is also the Greenwich) and it's a real Hollywood spot in a mostly residential neighborhood. A screening room and lounge with A-lister DJs keep it current and rooms are small but well appointed. This is also the sister property to the Soho Grand Hotel.
Tribeca is a very fashionable neighborhood right below Soho and close to great restaurants, shopping and Wall Street. With the Tribeca Film Festival held close by, it's become Manhattan's little slice of Hollywood, albeit an understated version.
The use of luxe materials like onyx, travertine, smoked glass and velvet and leather upholstered beds is a testament to the property's opening in 2000, a real boom time for the city's hotel scene. Nonetheless, the rooms don't feel OTT. Make to sure to request a room far away from the rocking lounge.
This is a real lobby-as-nightclub scene with "The Lounge" at the the center of the action. World class DJs spin here but I find the whole ground floor a bit too much: from the opulent design to the number of people that are always stopping in for a drink.
The Church Lounge isn't a destination in and of itself but it's fine for a snack during the day or for a late night dinner.
A 100-room screening room has hosted films like Michael Moore's Farenheit 101 and it's a nice touch for a hotel that is such a Hollywood hangout.
Not a property plus as far as I am concerned. The staff sometimes seem like they are there for looks rather than professionalism.
Rock stars, Hollywood A-listers, Wall Streeters who want some nightlife.
They run a lot of last minute specials and holiday packages so make sure to ask if they can give you some kind of discount or package.
