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
I don’t typically write reviews but my fiancé and I were so blown away by our experience at the Roxy. The staff was accommodating from the beginning. Teresa at the front desk checked us in and took care of all our little problems with so much speed and poise. She also gave my fiancé and I great recommendations for places to visit in the area. The bar is a great place to hang out if you don’t want to go far for the night. Even their coffee shop on site is incredible. I highly recommend staying at this hotel ????????
The Roxy hotel is absolutely beautiful. Mr. Sammy (one of the hotel supervisors) is a very fine gentleman. He is so helpful and kind to all the guests. We had a very nice time staying there and the hotel is located in a very nice area of the city. The bar area and lounge is so much fun!! Our room was great. Thank you Sammy for making The Roxy a great place!!!
We went to the Roxy for our special time. The staff and door guys were amazing. Loved the welcome Champagne at the Check in. Really Really cool hip atmosphere. We enjoyed the Oyster happy hour and once again the head bartender on point. The Oysters were delicious. Following our dinner we came back to the Blues with the Excellent live Jazz.
The only minor detail. The room was a little dated. Could have used a newer bed, and some updated electric- Usb outlets. Would go back again for a great fun time.
