Amy Adejokun Section editor

11 years after opening in the eponymous district of Manhattan, the Tribeca Grand is still a force to be reckoned with amongst downtown hotels. At once classy, retro and contemporary, it offers a unique architecture, well-equipped, originally decorated rooms and a first rate staff all in the trendy, exciting backdrop of Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal Street). Just like its sister hotel, the Soho Grand, it also boasts some quirky novelties which set it apart from the competition. If there is one criticism it would be the restaurant, where the service, while pleasant, left a lot to be desired (more in 'Food and Drink'). Nonetheless we would definitely recommend this property to all types of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families.

    Location 4.98 /10

    The hotel has a fine location for discovering downtown Manhattan straddling two of the trendiest neighbourhood's on the island, namely SoHo and CanDo (within which is Tribeca). You'll have an overwhelming choice of restaurants, bars and shops, including galleries, clothes stores and design showrooms. Just a short subway ride away you can be in the financial district and down by the water where you can catch ferries to the various islands off Manhattan. Getting up to midtown or Brooklyn is easy enough with Canal Street station offering a host of lines to get you to your destination. JFK is 18 miles away, La Guardia 11 miles and Newark 13.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The rooms at the Tribeca Grand have a strong 1960s feel to them in terms of the colours, shapes and patterns used. The standard rooms, which are of a good size but probably not spacious enough to allow for a stay of more than three or four days, feature a queen bed with a wonderfully retro yellow and brown honeycomb motif, which is mirrored in the duvet. This really sets the tone for the rest of the room's décor and furniture which comprises brown, bamboo covered walls, two small bedside tables with telephone and iPod docking station, a cute little orange bedside light on the wall (which matches the lamp on the simple desk), a tall angle poise lamp, brown leather wingback armchair and a cabinet hiding the minibar and snacks tray. A strip of mirror runs along the wall opposite the bed giving an extra dimension to the space, while stripes have been painted above and below this and along the closet, elongating the room. Amenities include flatscreen television, DVD player, jack box, safe, bathrobes, iron and ironing board and umbrella. The bathroom boasts a metal vanity, recalling those found in trains or aircraft with integrated loo roll holder, tissue dispenser and toiletries shelf, a bathtub with shower, make-up mirror and Malin + Goetz toiletries. It's not the largest bathroom you'll find in New York, but it well crafted and practical. There are other categories of guestroom offering more space and living areas although for longer stays the suites and studios may suit better. The deluxe studio for example has similar amenities and décor, but has a separate salon complete with sofa, coffee table and an iMac computer. The largest room is the penthouse, which was completed in 2009 and which has a loose oriental theme running through it. This room boasts a dining area for up to six people, a salon with a beautiful, long white sofa with red pipping, wet bar, marble walls and sculptures, books and 'objets' as well as a large room with leather armoires, marble vanities and monsoon shower. Upstairs you'll find a decked terrace equipped with loungers and table and chairs with 360° views of Manhattan.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    Although it's not difficult to miss the prominent, red brick Tribeca Grand which stands on the corner, it might not occur to you that this is your hotel as the name doesn't appear anywhere on its exterior. The only place it's displayed is on the face of tall clock just outside the entrance. We were greeted extremely warmly by the doorman and equally so by the rather fetching receptionists behind the long, spotlit welcome desk. Design features of the lobby include the (what look to be) bamboo covered walls and ceilings, the warm floor tiles and the winding slope down to the centre of the building where you'll find Church Lounge (see 'Food and Drink'). But the most impressive feature by far is the wonderful central triangular atrium of the building from which you can see the inward-facing corridors of each floor as well as the orange girders at the very top of the building from which natural light floods the whole core of the hotel. This is one of our very favourite interiors in New York.

    Perhaps the stand out amenity of the hotel is its 100-seat cinema, which, although mainly hired out as a private space, is sometimes used for themed film screenings (New York, New York, was a recent one). A small fitness room is available to guests which is equipped with several machines for a full workout as well as towels and water. The hotel doesn't have its own wellness centre, but its does share the facilities at its sister property, the Soho Grand.

    The general upkeep of the hotel is in good order and the public spaces clean and easy to negotiate. There are several lifts serving all floors and getting to your room is uncomplicated given the triangular layout of the hotel and its corridors which all look over the atrium.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Church Lounge, named after the adjacent street, takes up the entire floor space of the hotel's central triangular atrium. Although there is no real view outside, the setting of the internal architectural structure of the building is stunning and provides one of the most original backdrops to a meal in the city. The spaces comprises several different areas for dining, drinking or relaxing and features a mix of banquette, armchair and regular chair seating around varying sizes of table. That said, Church Lounge is due for a refurbishment very soon (we visited in January 2011) so this could all change dramatically. Our dinner experience here was a mixed bag. The food was undoubtedly of a good standard, in standing with the hotel, however the quality of service needs to be reviewed. Don't get us wrong, it was courteous and well meaning, but was clumsy and the timing was poor. We felt this a shame as it was otherwise a pleasant experience, especially given the backdrop. The restaurant serves all three meals as well as a brunch on Sundays. The bar at one end of the space serves a range of cocktails and wine by the glass in addition to a bar menu featuring snacks and simple dishes. Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between 10pm and 2am, Church Lounge turns into a party zone when various DJ acts take control of the decks and bring a different atmosphere to the space. But don't worry about the noise disturbing your sleep - outside every room is a white noise machine which blocks any sound coming from down below in the atrium.

    To know

    The Tribeca Grand opened its doors back in 2000 and was one of the first hotels in the area. It continues to be a popular choice not only for accommodation, but also for night life. There are a number of quirky amenities at the hotel, especially ones involving animals, which mark it out from others. For example, for those guests who can't bring their pets but miss them terribly, the hotel will loan you a goldfish and bowl to keep in your room for the duration of your stay. Also on loan at the hotel are a selection of DVDs and a fleet of Electra Townie bicycles during the autumn, spring and summer.

      The Sheraton Tribeca is a smart new hotel in a great location for both (returning) tourists and business people. Not only is it close to the business district around Wall Street, but its proximity to several of Downtown's most exciting neighbourhoods is a real plus. A full service hotel, the Sheraton offers well appointed, spacious rooms with great views, a decent restaurant, great business and fitness facilities and some nice touches and services that you may not expect from a hotel such as this. Efficient staff and a bustling atmosphere make this a solid choice for those looking for a high standard, dependable hotel with no nasty surprises.

      Coming up to its fifteenth anniversary, the Soho Grand looks as good as ever. This trendy downtown hotel, in an equally modish part of town, has everything for the modern day traveller with well appointed rooms with city views, fashionably exclusive restaurant and bar, original décor and artwork throughout and a young, hip staff team at your call. This, together with several quirky details which give the hotel a unique identity, make of the Soho Grand a pleasant base from which to explore both the alternative local area, but also the New York that we are all so familiar with, having visited the city or not. We recommend this property for all types of traveller from coupes, to friends to families.

      • Location 5.34

      The fourth and latest of the city's Morgan's properties, the Mondrian SoHo is arguably the most spectacular and the least New York-like of the lot. With design by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz based on Jean Cocteau's 'La Belle et le Bęte', the hotel gives off a vibe that you'd expect to find on the coast rather than in the city. It feels fresh, airy and light and has some wonderful public spaces. Some of its rooms are on the small side, but this is compensated by exquisite design, a high standard of amenities, some spectacular views and a brand spanking new Italian restaurant. A hotel perfect for couples wanting to explore Downtown Manhattan, the Mondrian is the perfect trendy base.

      In the city that never sleeps, it's always nice to find yourself in a ?calm hotel'. In terms of hotel typologies you've got those where you plunge into another era, those where you discover a world within a world, boutique hotels and charming hotels full of character. The Greenwich marries all of this but is at once very different. A tranquil hotel, bathed in a soft light, it does one good to take refuge from the hubbub of The Big Apple. More than just a simple hotel, you'll find in this animated residence all the passions and emotions of its owner, Robert De Niro, big traveller and patron of the arts, the seventh of which he has made his profession.

      An historic Downtown hotel, The Cosmopolitan is a quaint property which was going through many changes during our visit in February 2013. Although there is not much they can do about the small room sizes, we saw how they had started to improve the décor in the guestrooms and they were a massive improvement on what came before. As well as upgrading the bedrooms, there were also plans for a lobby bar and second restaurant so by now it should be a completely different hotel! But what we saw during our visit was a well located, comfortable hotel with kind staff and a cute local eatery on its premises. Suitable for couples and small families who are not looking for a large-scale property in the heart of the New York hubbub.

      The Dream is a funky, mid-range hotel with a fantastic midtown Manhattan location. It design is rather eclectic with several styles running through the hotel. Perhaps its major selling point is its rooftop bar, Ava, which boasts unobstructed views of Times Square. The rooms can be quite small and the staff unfriendly, but with its popular restaurant and unique features it is one to consider for both couples and groups of friends looking to try something a little different on their trip to New York.

      New York is crammed full of mid-range, good value boutique hotels and the trend doesn't look like slowing down any time soon. So what makes Duane Street so different we hear you ask? Well, several things. First, is its perfect Downtown location. Second, its sleek décor that does not try too hard. Third, the personable and enthusiastic staff. And fourth, its innovative and exciting little restaurant and its owner. While it might lack some of the facilities that larger hotels boast, it makes up for this with its character and fine balance between trendy and function. We couldn't recommend this hotel more highly for any type of traveller, no matter how many times you've been to New York.

      Situated in the modish SoHo district of Manhattan, this Thompson Hotels property has stylishness written all over it. 'Understated' is a word much bandied around in hotel circles, however it is one that goes some way to describing the elegance and cleanliness of the décor. Despite having opened back in 2001 it still pulls in the crowds whether that be for its unique Thai restaurant, voguish Thom Bar or A60, its members only rooftop bar (the first in New York). But it is above all a comfortable, homelike hotel which, like its sister properties, is suited more to couples and friends rather than families.

      We're going to stick our necks out here and say that of all the hotels we have stayed at in this city, the Setai probably takes top spot. Of course there are many different types of hotel in the city and not everyone is looking for what the Setai has to offer, but as on overall experience, it can't, in our opinion, be bettered. The rooms are not only some of the biggest in the city, but they are likely to be the best appointed in terms of amenities too. The stunning, contemporary spa is as luxurious as it is spacious and in its restaurant the hotel has one of most memorable dining experiences to be had. But what impressed us most, and where the hotel rises above it competitors, is the consistent attention to detail and impeccable service the likes of which we've never seen. Although new (November 2010 opening), this is right up there with the old masters and the best thing is that it can only get better!

      Let's not mince our words; The Peninsula is quite simply one of the finest hotels in New York, even more so now it is the other side of a renovation. From the very first moment you enter the hotel you'll have no doubt about the quality of experience that awaits you. There is very little to pick holes at here where excellence comes as standard: the large rooms are finely furnished, the restaurants of the highest caliber, the spa one of the most beautiful and complete in the city and the service faultless. Like all top class hotels this all comes at a certain price, however if there was ever one hotel which could justify the cost it would be this one.

Generously proportioned, impressively appointed rooms are complemented by a relaxed yet top class Italian restaurant, while the spa is a sight to behold. You'll have a tough job finding a property where the service is paralleled and don't even get us started on the views! A magnificent, modern and memorable hotel, we recommend the Trump Soho to all kinds of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families. A huge thumbs up.

      Q. What do you get when you take $150 million and put them into the hands of one of the world's greatest architect/designers? A. The Mark. Be under no illusions, what Jacques Grange and co have conceived in the leafy surroundings of the Upper Eastside is now the yardstick against which all other hotels will now have to measure themselves. After over two years under renovation with some of the most sought after names in the creative fields working on the project, The Mark has transformed itself from a decent hotel to a hotel of superlatives. Everything is top draw from the design to the staff, from the food to the wellness centre. This all, of course, comes with the price tag that its quality demands, however rest assured that no other hotel can come close to what The Mark has to offer.

      This mythical New York hotel has seen its fair share of changes, both within in its walls and outside, however one thing remains constant: The Carlyle is one of the swankiest, smartest, seductive hotels in the city. The very few flaws of the hotel (for example the size of some bathrooms) can be excused by its age; otherwise there are very few hotels of this genre which can claim to offer a similar experience. Not only does it offer top notch service and facilities, but its location and commanding views are also something spectacular. Throw in a rich history, fine dining and exquisite décor and you get a hotel (literally) fit for kings. If you've got the cash, don't even ask yourself the question?

      The Pierre has always been a landmark hotel in New York City?and we are glad to report that after its latest $100 million renovation following its takeover by Taj Hotels, it is still very much one of the hotels by which others must judge themselves. It is true to say that it may not have some of the facilities of some of the other top hotels (no spa, smaller rooms), but when it comes to service, style and sophistication, not to mention history, it is untouchable. With a location that would make most hotels weep with envy, fabulously appointed rooms with an Asian touch and a new, top quality restaurant, The Pierre is back on top of its game and ready to welcome once again all types of traveller, no matter their motive for visiting the city. All this comes, of course, at a price, but if you had to choose a place to spend your hard earned cash, this has got to be near the summit of your shortlist.

      You may be coming to the United States to see New York, but the St. Regis is a destination in itself. The most sumptuous hotel we have visited to date in the city, its beautiful Beaux-Arts interiors are a sight to behold. It's (rightly) famed for its unrivalled service and King Cole Bar (more in 'Food and Drink') as well as its beautiful, spacious and well appointed rooms, however it does lack some of the high tier amenities of its rivals, such as a swimming pool, and the views are not quite as good. That said it can boast an Alain Ducasse restaurant and original antique décor. It's true to say that some may find the hotel's opulence a little overbearing, but let's not lose sight of the fact that this is nonetheless a true masterpiece. Even if you don't have the means to stay here, come and take a look around as the property has some unique features. Couples, friends or business travellers will all find their calling at the St. Regis.
