Why consider the best Tribeca hotels? Because Tribeca, New York is the zenith of aspirational New York living with plenty of multi-million dollar lofts, stylish moms hogging the sidewalks, and patrons clamoring for seats at the best Tribeca restaurants. But you can still experience living in one of the most in demand neighborhoods in Manhattan, whether you book at one of the area’s best 5 star hotels or smaller, stylish boutique hotels.

Best Tribeca hotels in NYC
The opening of the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, the city’s latest five-star hotel, is feeding Lower Manhattan’s revival. The hotel, designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, is sleek and stylish without feeling too corporate across its 24 floors of rooms. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck also opened his first Manhattan restaurant in the hotel with the CUT, a splashy steakhouse serving everything from pricey cuts of Japanese Wagyu beef to local seafood. Once you step outside, you’ll be steps from the Westfield Mall and all of neighborhood’s trendy amenities.
The newly-opened Arlo Hudson Square is a hip space filled with the bells and whistles that appeal to savvy travelers and Millennials alike. A “bodega” out front is stocked with gourmet coffee and a carefully curated selection of snacks. You’ll find plenty of public spaces with chic furniture and the rooms are outfitted with complimentary wifi, LED televisions, conveniently-located USB ports to charge your phones, Bluetooth radio, and much more. Chef Harold Moore’s restaurant Harold’s Meat + Three is one of downtown’s hottest restaurants not to pass up.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel’s long history in the neighborhood is just one reason it fits in the neighborhood so well (everyone from Gold Rush miners to respected judges booked rooms in the hotel with its Gothic Revival exterior). Rooms here mix turn-of-the-century décor with marble tubs, rain showers, Frette linens, and original subway-inspired art on the walls. Checking in here feels as if you’ve found a hidden oasis of luxury in downtown.
It’s easy to overlook the Greenwich Hotel with the bustling restaurant Locanda Verde bringing in countless guests throughout the day on the first floor. In true boutique style, none of the 88 rooms and suites are alike: in one you’ll find Tibetan silk rugs and in another you’ll find a bathroom lined with Italian Carrara marble. Even when you leave the hotel, everything feels just right with the cobblestoned streets surrounding the hotel and the Hudson River just steps away.
A recent renovation of the former Tribeca Grand hotel has given way to The Roxy Hotel with all 201 rooms undergoing a makeover with mid-century modern touches and more high-tech touches in the premium rooms (Penthouse 8 includes private access to a rooftop terrace). You’ll want to invite friends to meet at The Roxy Upstairs to grab drinks at the bar or head downstairs to The Django for craft cocktails and jazz. The location is also ideal as it’s walking distance from SoHo, Chinatown, and the West Village.
