Between two roaring avenues on the western edge of Soho, this towering hotel is the beauty queen on the block. Behind enormous glass doors, the lobby has an organic, textured look, with a full wall of angled wood pillars, polished stone floors, boulder-size light fixtures in metal cradles, and handsome leather armchairs with brass accents. Every detail, from the fresh orchid displays to the selection of art books to the quiet upstairs lounge, is in its well-considered and immaculately quaffed place. Guest rooms have that coveted New York amenity: space. Fendi Casa is behind the subtly masculine design that mixes charcoals, whites, and Merlot reds from carpet to studded-leather headboard. By far the best feature, however, is the floor-to-ceiling windows that frame corners of the cityscape rarely seen from this low-rise neighborhood. Bathrooms feel spa-like in striped marble and glass, with standalone showers, double vanities (in some) and lovely Bulgari amenities. All have deep tubs, and a special few are positioned below enormous picture windows so you can admire the city (and inevitably croon Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind”) as you soak. On the ground floor, just off the lobby, Spring & Varick restaurant serves modern twists on American cuisine in an upscale wooden dining room that works for both late night business diners and the buffet breakfast crowd; drinks are best had at the 60s-style cocktail bar, Mr. Jones. On the seventh floor, The Spa is a luxe spot (think private hammams and outdoor sunrise yoga) for rejuvenating treatments, facials, and more.
In the Area
Walk east on Spring Street and you’ll hit the heart of Soho’s shopping streets within three blocks. On West Broadway, get the London look at Brit high street favorites Reiss and French Connection, go upscale at DKNY, Ralph Lauren and Sandro, then stop for a strong coffee at Ground Support. Load up with a burger and fries at Lucky Strike, or head for tacos at La Esquina’s hidden brasserie or a sushi box at Blue Ribbon. After dark, join a hip crowd for cocktails at the Dutch, order fondue and mulled wine at Euro favorite Café Select, or head west toward the Hudson River and snag a seat and a Pimms Cup at Smith and Mills.
How to Get There
From the moment I arrived, I felt like I was treated like a king! Whether it was Marek and Elvis at the front door and Frank with my belongings, they were so welcoming and eager to help with any request. Crystal and Tiffany in the VIP area made me feel like one myself! All of the front desk agents (Xin, Jenny, Sydeka, Marlene and Veronica) were so efficient and always had a smile! They were professional, engaging and committed to service. Peggy at the concierge desk was knowledgeable about the hotel and the area and had great recommendations for me throughout my quick stay. This location cannot be beat, incredible views from the 30th floor of the hotel to see the Empire State Building and the 1 World Trade Center. Amazing service and spectacular views make the Dominick Hotel the place to be while staying in New York City. Can’t wait to return!
I can’t say enough about The Dominick Hotel. Crystal greeted us upon arrival and gave us the key to our room along with her card in case we needed anything. She also had a tray of food, a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room minutes after our arrival. Everything was delicious. The room was beautiful and the views breathtaking. Our concierge Peggy made sure all our reservations were made and Tiffany made checking out a breeze. Love this hotel and can’t wait to go back. Thank you for making my birthday celebration one I will never forget.
One of the best hotel experiences I have ever had in New York or anywhere else in the world. Being CEO of a national company with branch’s in several states, I travel quite often and unfortunately spend many nights per year in hotel rooms. My trip to the Dominick started with preparations arranged through Cesar Arriaga who was perfect in every detail so tystbupon my arrival I was greeted by Crystal who made my checkin easy and welcoming. Your staff throughout my stay were professional, friendly and eager to help with answers to questions and valuable suggestions. There is no other hotel I would ever stay in hen in NY and find that The Dominick has set the standard by which I will rare other hotels and they have and will come up short . Thank you again for a most enjoyable stay.
