The hotel is located conveniently by a train stop (the front door is about 15 feet away from the subway) and there is security and concierge at the front at all times. What my wife and I appreciated most was the big room we had. We are use to cramped spaces in New York so it was a warm welcome to have space in a hotel room. There is a great bagel… Read more

There is a great bagel shop a block away and tons of shopping and food within walking distance. The staff was excellent and they have late-night room service. Read less

The hotel is in a great location! The staff was friendly and the room was a good size for nyc. I will definitely return to this hotel. The lounge was really nice and only for hotel guests which was nice!

This was my first time staying at an AKA property. And there's no other way to put it: I loved my experience. In large part, this was due to the friendliness demonstrated by Xavier (a bellman) and JC (one of the front desk attendants). They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and in good spirits. For instance, when I first… Read more
This was my first time staying at an AKA property. And there's no other way to put it: I loved my experience. In large part, this was due to the friendliness demonstrated by Xavier (a bellman) and JC (one of the front desk attendants). They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and in good spirits. For instance, when I first arrived, Xavier was kind enough to offer me a bottle of Fiji water; he later wished me good luck before a law firm interview of mine. These are, of course, only small gestures, but they say a great deal about Xavier's character. For those who are deciding whether or not to stay at the AKA Tribeca, I highly recommend it. It's not just a beautiful hotel; the staff are phenomenal as well. Cheers. Read less

My gf and I stayed a lot at the AKA / Smyth Tribeca during the last 12 months. The interior design of the hotel is clean, almost minimal, exactly what we needed (I believe that the interior is being upgraded now). But what absolutely stands out is the whole team working there, everyone: the whole reception team during the day and night (thanks… Read more

You all made us feel home. We miss you! Read less

I spent three nights at the AKA Tribeca. Overall, I had a good stay here. The hotel is in a excellent location in Tribeca, surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops. The staff are generally courteous and professional. I stayed in a premium room, which was nice. But there were a few quirks: the lighting is very limited (this is apparently an intentional design choice), but the staff kindly added an extra light stand which made a big difference; (ii) the shower has no door, so expect water to splash out in the rest of the bathroom! The gym is OK if somewhat basic and dated (the Fiji water is a nice touch). More generally, the hotel is technically newish but you can’t help but feel that it’s more of a ‘soft’ refresh of the previous Smyth hotel (indeed, you can still see some Smyth logos in parts of the hotel!). Overall, I’d consider staying here again for a short stay if I got a decent rate. Read less
