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
I’ve been to the Cipriani BeImond in Venice, Italy and while their rooms are more old school regal, their lobby and bar area is furnished extremely nice with high end Italian touch. The way Seaport was decorated reminded me of this. Nothing is done half-way everything is thought out. I loved the regal navy carpeting in my room, it felt like velvet. Very clean rooms. My stay was 3 nights.
- Slippers laid out on both sides of bed
- the bathroom is extremely nice and fits the 5 star rating.
- lighting fixtures- layout is thought out
- full bar available in room + mini bar if you only want a drink.
- San Benedetto sparkling water or naturale + club soda and tonic option if you need a mixer instead.
- room service menu is great. Food is awesome - I particularly like the evening chef more so than the morning chef if I am to be honest. The chicken arugula salad was ‘Molto bene.’
- arrive after 11am for checkin for complimentary peach Bellini (if you don’t know backstory, this drink was created by Harry Cipriani). It was prepared exactly the same as the restaurant on Central Park East and at the Belmond in Venice.
- comfortable beds
-other amenities avail on request (ie toothbrush)
- near Brooklyn and freedom tower
- complimentary Lincoln to anywhere below Houston street
Lincoln isn’t always available and because I do a lot of meetings above 14th street I spent maybe average $80-100/day on taxis and Ubers (mainly bc I don’t like taking subway - so if I did - no service elevator so between 10-4pm the elevators take forever.
-I booked bc it was listed as a VIP access hotel for Expedia gold members but at checkin I don’t think the front desk was familiar with vIP gold so I didn’t get the free upgrade or any free perk. If they have one - I never found out what it was. I would have minded more if the rooms weren’t so fancy but since they were I had no complaints
-that would have saved me money) and I forgot about using the Via app until my last night - anyone who is new to NY and reading this - get the Via App and you can travel to Central Park for maybe $8 the most. And $5 average ride. Promo code: andrea8y8 if you want $10 off...
We loved our stay! We were pampered from the beginning, as you are checking in they offered you a Belini Drink. After a whole day riding a bike it was very nice arrive at our room late at night and find a bottle of champagne and a basket of fruits as complimentary for our wedding anniversary. All the staff is friendly. The room is spacious for NY standards, the bathroom is big. The decor is beautiful and cozy. They offer bikes for free, which was great because we could ride around Manhattan by bike, very beautiful scene, along Hudson River, we went to World Trade Center and even to Central Park by bike from the hotel. Metro station is a 7 minute walking distance. We liked so much that we decided to go back and spend our last night in Manhattan there, so I asked for an upgrade and was granted with a balcony room with view of Brooklyn Bridge, beautiful. and at night we received another basket of fruits and bottle of mineral water as complimentary. The breakfast is not included. The restaurant is Italian and the food is good. They receive packages for free, my only complain was that 2 little packages were missing.
the food at this Italian hotel is really good. I recommend staying here. Also, All the furniture is new because it is a new hotel and the staff are super welcoming. The location is superb in a part of ny that is quieter than most but still in the action.
The best Bellini in town!!! Awesome lobby, room service and breakfast!!!! The staff is also very friendly and welcoming..... interesting location, close to the water but not overwhelming busy streets and Close to the financial district with lots of choices.
We have had 2 recent stats at Mr C Seaport and I have to say this is a very nice hotel. The rooms are done to a very high standard with high gloss very expensive teak furniture & panelling which is not old fashioned but very contemporary. Bathrooms are very well appointed with twin marble sinks dual showers very chic. The beds are exceptionally comfortable. There is a new complimentary Lincoln courtesy car available which will take you up to 20 blocks on s first come first served basis which we used a couple of times. The staff are very professional and courteous and will do anything they can to assist. The only thing that bugged me was that absolutely everything was chargeable. If you want water or tea/ coffee in your room you need to pay up. If you’re not too concerned about the price then this place is really nice.
