The Dominick Hotel
What We Love
- Exceptional views across Manhattan or the Hudson River from all floors
- Traditional Turkish and Moroccan bathing rituals in the tiled hammam
- Good for extended stays—the smallest rooms are a spacious 422 square feet
What To Know
- Location between two busy avenues is not the prettiest; Soho's shop-filled cobblestone streets are a five-minute walk away
- Mostly business travelers during the week
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
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
Stayed here for 2 nights and could have stayed more.
Our room on 28th floor was a good size as often NYC rooms aren’t and we had a great view of the Hudson and New Jersey. Bathroom really well appointed and lots of towels and toiletries.
We loved the outdoor pool. What a treat to have some outside space and it’s fab after a few hours of exploring the city to flop out here for a couple hours, enjoy the sun and a drink and listen to the mayhem below. The sushi looked great we didn’t try as had dinner reservations but will do next time
Service at front desk excellent (Gabriela). Stanley the doorman was brilliant too.
We are staying at another hotel (The Edition) for the last bit of our trip but I wish we had booked back in here.
As a point to note ... breakfast was a bit average. We ate out on our second day.
Stayed at The Dominick in NYC/Soho with 4 business associates. Rooms were great and the service was (as usual) fabulous. Special mention to Gabriela at the front desk - she is so helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. We will be back.
The Dominick is a beautiful hotel with beautiful views especially the sohi rooms. Gabriela Bucheli is incredible and a standout front desk agent that makes the experience that much better. Thank you for making our stay that much more special. Will definitely return 😁
this is a great hotel near lots of fun shops, restaurants, and easy transportation hubs. the staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. we felt very comfortable in our king room, with special points for the large bathroom!
Stayed 9th to 14th May .Great location for doing all the tourist things in NYC , great local bars and restaurants .THe hotel staff are great from the doormen who are all friendly and full of good humour ,ready with umbrellas when (sadly) needed!
