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
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff are unresponsive and not willing to fix problems, they will only offer you a free breakfast and not actually fix the problems. Dishing out free breakfasts because not many people are going there.
Hotel is under construction, most hotels tell you that. The windows are paper thin and you can hear everything in other rooms and the hallway. Not good for a light sleeper.
Rooms are dirty.
Things don't work and maintenance is lacking. The ceiling in the shower I was in was caving in.
I had to check out early. Staff were not pleasant, never apologized and were all about charging as much as possible and trying to delay you from checking out. SCAM of a HOTEL.
Also staff and management would not call back or provide email responses.
I ended up leaving early that's how bad it was with nowhere to go on a busy holiday weekend. Luckily I was able to book something else even though I went out of pocket at a premium to get out of this mess.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED - I HOPE YOU DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID BY BOOKING HERE.
Class. Style. Swag. Whatever you want to call it, you'll be feeling it here. Say Hello to William von Puttkamer while you're there. He was our personal hero and superstar during our stay. Enjoy the welcome bellinis as well as their fantastic Italian restaurant, aptly named, Bellini. Highly recommend a visit!
Wow! Love this hotel! The bathrooms are incredible and the rooms gigantic for New York. The décor is beautiful and the bed super comfortable. Our Room was a suite which overlooked the Brooklyn bridge however you had to stand on your tippy toes to see out the odd shaped windows.
We had breakfast in the hotel a couple of times. Food was amazing and reasonably priced, but service was super slow so go elsewhere if you are in a hurry.
The bar and the common areas are beautifully furnished, and it was a pleasure to stay in such a nice hotel. The bar staff were super friendly.
We used the free car service a couple of times to Soho and all the drivers we encountered were lovely and super friendly!
The welcome Bellini’s were a nice touch and our check in was friendly (girl that checked us out was super grumpy and the only other negative was there was no business centre and we had issues printing when we asked reception staff to assist us).
The location is a little out of the way, however, we have travelled to NYC several times and wanted to explore this area. It certainly is up and coming and plenty of things to do within walking distance. We didn’t find the location to be an issue and it was nice to stay in a new neighbourhood. I would happily stay at Mr C again!
This place is possibly best hotel expereince in NYC. Amazing views, excellent service beyond personable. The place is super clean. The lobby bar and restaurant's ambiance so romantic and classy. So NY!! The rooms are big and comfy. Fabulous shower. We loved it. We just surprised my sister with a birthday staycation in NY. Patrick Trevor the concierge and Patricia Jessenia, at front desk were outstanding. Patrick staged the room with flowers, balloons, Prosecco just so special. They welcome you with a delicious Bellini. Patricia extended her knowledge and warmth every time we requested anything at all. Yet the most defining part of this hotel is their service is impeccable. I felt like we were truly guest of the most gracious host and hostess. Best of all the location outstanding great restaurants and everything in walking distance. Highly recommend this jewel.
I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel for a very good rate in December with Amex FHR. The room upgrade was relatively minor (maybe slightly larger basic room), but like the clean, yacht-like decor. I dont mind the lower Manhattan location, but this is not where you want to be if you plan to spend a lot of time un midtown...its far. One odd incident was when I met three colleagues before a meeting in the lobby and grabbed coffee from the self-serve in paper cups and they brought us a bill. I signed but brought to attention of front desk upon check out and they very gladly credited it and said that it was a mistake. So all good, but still probably onboarding some new people as hotel relatively new. Nice spot.
