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
It was a busy weekend for the hotel. Not sure if it was due to the NY marathon. Using the AMEX Fine Hotels and resorts, my fiancee and I usually expect an early check in and a late check out. Unfortunately, no rooms were available when we arrived at 230pm.Front desk got my number and mentioned that he will call us when the room is ready. we decided to eat at Bellini. At 4 pm, we still did not get a call hence I went to inquire again. They totally forgot about us.
With AMEX Fine Hotels and resorts, we usually get an upgrade but not this time due to the busy weekend. We were told to go straight to our room.
Obviously we were not happy. The room was small (with one small window) but the amenities were impressive. Unfortunately one of the sink was clogged.
I decided to complain to the front desk but no concrete response. I filed a formal complaint to AMEX. After that, Dean (I think), and the front desk (manager) called us. There was another room after all. Much bigger than our previous. They very apologetic and mentioned specifically that they would try to make things right. Bathroom was impeccable. Love the marble. The lighting was phenomenal. Bed, pillows and comforter were exceptional. Aside from the initial bad experience, I am still giving this hotel 5 stars because on how they responded to our concerns.
In addition, we love the location. We were not able to use the navigator because we mostly wanted to walk around. again, my fiancee and I had a great time. Handling guests' concerns could be improved.
I visited the hotel with my father and we both had an amazing/ unique experience.
My father who is more traditional and was hesitant to stay in a new area of the city, loved the experience and enjoyed the area very much so.
The location, rooms and most of all the staff and fantastic and make the stay special. In particular, Michelle at the Bellini was cheerful and fun helping make our breakfast even more enjoyable.
Highly recommend this hotel on your next stay!
We stayed at Mr. C for a weekend and truly enjoyed it.
The staff were terrific. They greeted us warmly when we arrived and every time they saw us. They worked to make our stay pleasant.
We ate in the restaurant a few times and liked each meal. There are a number of small restaurants nearby and they are worth a try. The Seaport district, which is close, is also worth a visit. Try the Farmers Market shop.
Our room was comfortable and the staff kept it clean.
If you haven't stayed in a New York City hotel in some time, you might be surprised by the number of fees and taxes.
The hotel maintains several Lincoln Navigators and chauffeurs for your convenience. They will drive you to any location within certain radius.
Joggers: you have some options that are convenient. One is to take a left out of the front door and on the other side of a parking lot is the river walkway. Runners, walkers, and bicyclists use these paths along the river. An other option is to run over the Brooklyn Bridge--which is visible from the hotel. Ask the staff how to reach the entry point.
