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.
