Attentive European service meets understated Gotham glamour at this contemporary escape near South Street Seaport
Housed in a Federal-style brick building on a cobblestoned street in the burgeoning Seaport district, this 66-room looker owned by the illustrious Cipriani family is garbed in velvet, lacquered teak, and marble—though it’s the premium suites, with their rain showers, private terraces, and bespoke Italian furniture, that really infuse the wow-factor here. Italy continues to make its presence felt in the form of daily aperitivo hour at the intimate lobby lounge. We recommend advance reservations at Bellini (aptly named, since the much-loved cocktail was invented by Giuseppe Cipriani himself) where rustic Venetian fare like taglioni with scampi and sea urchin spaghetti serve as charming contrasts to the elegant pink-and-black interior.
In the Area
South Street Seaport, a 400-year-old emblem of New York’s nautical past, was in dire need of a makeover when the Howard Hughes Corporation decided to lead a neighborhood revival nearly five years ago. These days, Pier 17, once a seemingly out-of-tune mall, was replaced with a sleek four-story culinary/entertainment center boasting eateries by Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang and a forthcoming performance space poised to become a surefire fashion week hub. Also close is Stone Street, a hidden cobblestoned street crammed with pizzerias and pubs, and the One World Trade Center and Observatory (the hotel can help you pre-purchase tickets).
How to Get There
As always the experience was amazing at Mr C Coconut. This time
I definitely found my favorite room north east corner on the 4th floor best view in the hotel, besides the roof top. Back on Sunday 9/16 to close on my new Miami home. Looking forward to another great visit...
Stayed in a few different hotels in NYC, but this has been my favorite. We upgraded to a room with a terrace which was gorgeous. The area is not as congested as other parts of the city and felt very safe. The self park lot was close by and only $28 ($38 for large SUV’s) To top it off, excellent customer service. It’s cost more to stay here, definitely worth it if you decide to treat yourself to a fantastic stay.
Guess Peach Bellinis on check-in are no longer a thing - because we got no such greeting. We booked thru American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts so we did get an early check-in, we were advised we could check out late, received a room upgrade(? we were told several times that the hotel was not very booked - so why give us an upgrade to a low floor room in front right on top of construction going on outside our window?) as well as a complimentary bottle of water and fruit bowl. And although the room was nice and we enjoyed the location for a change of pace, lots of small hiccups along the way (not going to mention them all here but if management or AmEx contacts me I am happy to elaborate) make me question if I would return. In fact, my wife made me leave early and so I never got a chance to spend my $100 AmEx FHR on site credit for food and booze. :(
