The Dominick

Soho and Tribeca, New York

The hotel

Big by SoHo standards, the 46 story hotel offers views, a very happening bar scene, a spa and great dining, so posing the dilemma, to stay in or to go out? Three words distinguish the 391 rooms and suites. Space. Glass. And Fendi. An average of 500 square feet guestrooms offer a lot of space and all the rooms have floor to ceiling windows. They are also the first rooms in Manhattan to have been furnished by Fendi, better known for their handbags. Bar d’Eau, as the name suggests, is on the water. i.e. on the hotel’s 6000 square foot rooftop pool deck, boasting inspiring views of the city's skyline. If that's not enough, there is also The Spa which has indoor and outdoor relaxation lounges, luxury treatments and Manhattan's first traditional Turkish Hammam.

Image of the Tripadvisor rating MAJOR REMORSE! Could have stayed at MUCH NICER hotel for HALF the price!

I booked the Dominick through JetBlue vacations accidentally because I didn't calculate the per night price correctly in my head and then I couldn't change the resy. Since there was nothing I could do about it, I made peace with it, but for $700/night (!!!!!!!), I naturally had very high expectations. All I can say is, don't stay here. I've… Read more
I booked the Dominick through JetBlue vacations accidentally because I didn't calculate the per night price correctly in my head and then I couldn't change the resy. Since there was nothing I could do about it, I made peace with it, but for $700/night (!!!!!!!), I naturally had very high expectations. All I can say is, don't stay here. I've stayed at the Empire Hotel, the Standard in MePa and others for exactly half the price and they are far superior to the Dominick. Sure, the view from our room at the Dominick was amazing, but the flaws are oh so many! For just a taste of them... 1. The room itself is nothing special and in fact, felt shabby around the edges--the closet door, for example, really needed to be repainted. The furniture/furnishings are quite outdated. The water pressure in the shower is lacking. 2. The toiletries are cheap and my hair looked terrible the entire weekend. You think for $700 a night, we could get decent shampoo! Even the disposable slippers in the room were cheap.Worst of all, the towels in the bathroom are thin and scratchy. I have nicer towels in my home that I bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Maybe the owners of the Dominick should go shopping there. Also, the blow dryer was a cheap drugstore kind. 3. There was a non-operational Nespresso machine, and as it is, we were given only three pods--all decaf! We had to call down for more (we didn't know at the time the machine wasn't even working) and when they brought a handful, most of them were also decaf. We asked for just a bit of regular milk (as opposed to those awful creamers) and were initially told we'd have to pay for it. Seriously? To be fair, they eventually brought us some, but the machine didn't work anyway and we gave up. 4. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was HOT. It was winter, but we had to put the manual fan on and turn the AC (!!) on to 66 to be able to sleep at all--and that wasn't much. The sheets are not cozy and I think it's a memory foam mattress--and those mattresses sleep very hot. We barely slept in the three nights we stayed. 5. We were on the 39th floor--nice!--but as opposed to most tall NY buildings, this one did not have elevators split up, meaning that all elevators serviced all floors and so it took a really long time to get to 39 and to get on an elevator back down. 5. The night before we were leaving--when it was already raining--we asked at the front desk about a cab to the airport in the morning. We were assured there would be plenty of cabs outside the hotel and we just needed to be down there an hour before we needed to be at the airport. They knew it would be raining at that time and we were quite emphatic that we'd be leaving at 7 am. They assured us, no problem. Next morning: zero cabs and the doorman said the front desk was wrong--that there are not always cabs there. On top of that, he suggested we walk to the corner to try and hail one, but did not offer to do so for us. Again, for $700 a night? And speaking of which, the front doors of that hotel are super heavy and only one time when we were going in was there a doorman to open the door/greet us. 6. To say the service was unexceptional is not quite right, because really there was no service at all. I have never in my life stayed at a hotel so expensive and yet this was the least remarkable hotel experience I've had. It could have been a Holiday Inn! I could not be more disappointed about this experience, and I am so angry at myself for putting myself into more debt to stay at a place so undeserving. I had hoped for a very special and romantic weekend with my husband in NY and this was not the place to make that happen, but given the exorbitant cost, it will be a long time before I can return to the city. :-( Read less

I had a truly fantastic experience at the Dominik Hotel. I am an event planner and I found myself needing to find a hotel last minute for a very important meeting for about 30 people. The Dominik and the staff came to my rescue. Right before the Thanksgiving holiday, I had to get a contract, arrange catering, AV, and find some places to bring 20 or more people for dinner within walking distance of the hotel. Yikes. We made it happen and it was easy. Every single staff member I met was amazing. From the turn down service where they left me extra chocolates after I said I liked them, the fantastic food, the bellmen who gave me extra directions and an umbrella, The staff who gave me printing paper (without me asking) so I wouldn't have to trudge out into the cold, Eric the concierge who found me 2 amazing restaurants for my team on Thanksgiving, to Gabriela at the front desk who handled all of my last minute attendee requests (and errors) with ease. Ser Del in AV helped me fix a projector issue I've been having for ages with ease. Paige and Nico took the best care of me as I planned the meeting. I could not have been in better hands. By far, this was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a hotel through the meeting planning process. Also - my room was great. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The meeting was flawless. Everything was spectacular. Amazing hotel. Read less
