A boutique and luxurious stay in downtown NYC at the revamped icon once known as The Tribeca Grand
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 and New Yorkers. Not too surprising, with an address this covetable, 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. 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 guest rooms 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.
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
The hotel itself is gorgeous and cool and perfectly located in chill Tribeca. But what makes the Roxy crazy amazing is the staff. We had top notch customer service upon checking in with Omar. He got us into our room super early - which was a real luxury after a red-eye from San Francisco. Donald was a perfect gentleman and took care of us and our bags. And Derek rocked by letting us back into our rooms after our keys mysteriously stopped working after our trip to their cute and perfectly suitable gym.
Great atmosphere, good food, top notch entertainment, great location and SUPERB STAFF!!
Many thanks to all for making our stay memorable!!
Hope to come back soon :)

Staff is helpful and pleasant. Food is great and room service is timely. Manager goes above and beyond the call to proactively address any problems. If you need quiet between 7 and 10, you might want to request a quiet corner room where you won't hear the live jazz music (though the music is good).
Located in trendy Tribeca and close to the Canal Street metro, this is a great hotel . Live Jazz and blues performances make it rather special. They also have a small private cinema in the basement ! Great location. Staff very helpful to visitors in NYC. Great dining options and huge relaxing lounge area. A great place to stay.
