The staff has a very low-key vibe. Our room was immaculate and housekeeping refreshed it to check-in status when we requested it. For NYC, the rooms are larger than what I have experienced in the past. We had a balcony and the door sealed off the street noise at night. It's next door to the best Italian restaurant in the area - Ecco, and around… Read more
The staff has a very low-key vibe. Our room was immaculate and housekeeping refreshed it to check-in status when we requested it. For NYC, the rooms are larger than what I have experienced in the past. We had a balcony and the door sealed off the street noise at night. It's next door to the best Italian restaurant in the area - Ecco, and around the corner from a really good whiskey bar, Ward III. You have a subway station outside and the Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall station just down the street. And I know this seems weird, but having the NYT or WSJ delivered to your door every day instead of USA Today is a nice touch. The doors staff was friendly and helpful as well. Read less

Stayed here one night, traveling for work. It was a weird time to visit this hotel, because the lobby was under construction. Had to enter through a weird side door, and use the freight elevator. BUT, the dudes working the door and the makeshift lobby were so nice and helpful, I hardly minded. My room was decent. Decor a little plain. But the… Read more

But the bathroom was large and in good shape, and the bed was comfy enough. I'd stay again. Read less

This was our first trip to NYC and extensive research on which hotel was carried out! I was thrilled with my choice of AKA Tribeca, mainly due to the location which in my opinion is the best to stay in New York. Tribeca is such a great area for eating, drinking,and also for many sights including the 911 Memorial, just perfect for us as not quite so crazy as uptown! The staff both on reception and on the door were so helpful with providing information and the free drinks and snacks available were much appreciated. We loved the rooftop terrace with amazing views which we used quite a few times. The rooms are spacious and clean, lovely to come back to after a hard days' pavement pounding. The only gripe was that on returning to the hotel in the evenings after 1030 we were unable to purchase any drinks in the bar despite being residents. We would love to return to New York and would definitely stay here again. Read less

I loved this hotel! It was so clean and the staff was so helpful and kind! They even upgraded me to a better room for free. And the area was perfect! Close to the Hudson River and a nice big park. Can’t wait to go back there! Marvelous hotel!

Tribeca is advertised as a luxury hotel but is lacking some of the very basic requirements for modern traveler. There are no charging stations beside the bed when should be on both sides.

Tribeca is advertised as a luxury hotel but is lacking some of the very basic requirements for modern traveler. There are no charging stations beside the bed when should be on both sides. I carry an extension cord while traveling and accessing the single outlet beside the bed involved some gymnastics and moving of furniture. But then I have my own charging station. The bathrooms have barn-door sliding doors which do not reduce noise and the shower juts into the bedroom with frosted glass revealing the person in shower. The rooms are fairly quiet. The beds are very low--a warning to the over 70 set. The doormen/bellmen and front desk are very friendly and helpful. Hotel undergoing renovation during my stay and lobby unavailable. W. Broadway, in front of hotel, has been under construction repeatedly and I found both left lanes blocked and Uber had to dump me on other side of street. Best to call front desk and ask what current situation is to know how to direct driver. I use this hotel solely for its location two blocks from family. AS noted in other reviews, no complimentary coffee in room OR in lobby. Also the elevator area is poorly lit (on lobby level), particularly difficult when walking in from bright sun to dim space and trying to find correct end of keycard to insert in elevator. Read less
