Just like in the song, the name on everybody’s lips is gonna be Roxy. Not just any Roxy: The Roxy Tribeca. In fact, this glam boutique hotel already is a celebrity, only under a different name. You may already know her as The Tribeca Grand, a luxury property so stylish that it found devoted fans among celebrities, New Yorkers and the discerning taste-makers at Condé Nast Traveler, both the US and UK editions. Not too surprising, with an address this covetable (just three blocks from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s), retro design and one heck of a weekend brunch.
Now in its second act, this recently revamped icon’s got it all – an ambient resto-bar that stocks lox from Russ & Daughters, an Old World bathhouse, an ultra-exclusive cocktail lounge and even the screening room where Condé Nast Traveler chose to host its star-studded party with the Cinema Society. Evoking the famous ’90s dance club and incredible ’20s movie theater of the same name, The Roxy has an artistic bent, providing a destination for the city’s film and music scenesters via its weekly movie series, jazz club by Vito Dieterle and Joseph Schwartz and by turning out even more society-blog fodder than before.
Meticulously designed and heavy on the mid-century vibes, the 201 guestrooms feature custom furnishings, nine-foot ceilings and high-end fixtures, all to a jewel-toned palette. Views are of the surrounding neighborhood, and you have all the mod cons you could possibly need. In fact, while you’re here, you score an iPod – and if you request it, an iPad pre-loaded with the GrandLife city guide, a DVD player with a movie library and a MacBook Pro.Superior King rooms measure in at 245 square feet and hold a California king bed, but if you’d prefer a little more space in your king abode, the Studio King room, which is 340 square feet, with separate sleeping and sitting areas, is your best bet. You can also choose to stay in a 280-square-foot Deluxe Double Double rooms for two double beds.
A favorite among guests and locals alike, The Roxy Lounge and Bar has a chic atmosphere that gets a big dose of luxe from its plush velvet and leather furnishings, seductive lighting, intimate layout and extensive menu that features sophisticated dishes for every palate. Try classic favorites with an upscale twist, like pigs in blankets with whipped Dijon mustard, bucatini lobster with amatriciana sauce and grilled cheese with roasted tomato. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the hotel pairs each plate perfectly with a signature cocktail. A brunch buffet is also served each weekend day, featuring live jazz music and complimentary children’s film screenings in the Grand Screen.While you’re here, don’t forget to order a cocktail or two (at least). You’re in one of the coolest nightlife spots in the city, and the bar, with drinks like Casblanca, The Long Weekend and a raisin-infused Dirty Harry, is just one of three first-rate watering holes. The subject of tons of recent attention, The Django is a brand-new Jazz Age club that evokes a speakeasy; Paul’s Cocktail Lounge, by Paul Sevigny, with uniforms by his famous sister, will serve you crafted cocktails on silver trays – if you can get in.
Arguably New York City’s most happening downtown neighborhood, TriBeCa is home to some of Manhattan’s best restaurants and shops, as well as celebrities like Robert De Niro, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Explore the industrial architecture, film culture, parks, Hudson River views, galleries and nightlife. Live music, crafted cocktails, poetry readings and a serious art scene are all things you’ll find while wandering the cobblestone streets; Chinatown, Little Italy and Battery Park are just steps away. And iconic landmarks like Times Square, the Empire State Building, Ground Zero and Museum of Modern Art? All within a few subway stops.
How to Get There
We stayed for a long weekend with a group of 3 couples. Overall our experience was great. We were satisfied with the entire stay from the moment of check in to finally getting our bags and checking out.
Unfortunately, I can't speak to the bar, breakfast, or jazz club at the Roxy (main selling point) as we were busy experiencing the city, but I can guarantee your stay will be great even without taking advantage of these things offered.
The noise in the hotel is standard for the big city, but is quite tame considering the 2 or 3 bars across the street.
Charles and other bellhops were super friendly. I can only hope the management takes care of them the way they take care of the guests.
Decided to take a couples trip for a weekend, we chose the Roxy as our spot. Me and my girls went down to the bar late night. Bishop and Bridgette were amazing bartenders, great drinks and nice conversations to keep up laughing. I’ll make sure to keep this a tradition!
Traveling to see family and thought I’d visit the bar at the Roxy Hotel. I had heard great things about the service and atmosphere. It was better than I could ever had imagined. The outside reminded me of my childhood, as it was reminiscent of an actual movie theatre. The bartender, Bridgette, was amazing, and explained that their was an actual movie theatre in the hotel. She was busy and yet, always checking on us. She reminded me of that long ago starlet, Lorettta Young. I will definitely return the next time I’m in NYC, and tell all my friends to check it out when possible. Thank you Roxy.
The hotel rooms are nice, and the general design is good, but we are quite disappointed by the service here.
The jazz club downstairs is made into a key selling point for the hotel, but they have this bizarre rule that hotel guests have to buy a minimum of two drinks to get in, no matter what time they arrived. We turned up at midnight looking to have a quick drink and listen to some music for 30 minutes or so, and even though the club wasn’t full, they wouldn’t let us in unless we committed to two drinks each.
It’s a small detail but leaves a sour taste.
We just spent 5 nights at the Roxy and had such a great experience. The location is fantastic, the hotel & staff are superb and I want to go back already!
There are great bars & restaurants nearby the hotel. We walked everywhere but Canal Street Subway is just around the corner. The hotel is nearby so many of the top things to do in NY.
The hotel itself is very quirky with a great atmosphere. The rooms are large, huge windows and extremely clean. The staff are so helpful in every way.
The bar itself is expensive but I knew that from reading the reviews before I went - it is worth it though!! Danjo Bar downstairs is SO cool - I literally felt like I had stepped back in time when we went to a show there.
Thank you to the Roxy for making our trip amazing! We will be back :)
