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
- 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
Well you see a nice building from outside but the view from inside is stunning. Our room was facing south and it was amazing, the wall is full glass window (don't worry you can fully close the curtains to prevent sun in the mornings)..
The room is very confortable, the bathroom is very big for NY standards and also with a great view (that's not easy to find).
Staff were very friendly and helpful, will repeat for sure!
Very nice welcome and excellent services all weekend. The spa was a special experience and very professional and relaxing. The dining was excellent and great food and friendly professional service. The concierge was very helpful with walking tour suggestions and the doormen very helpful.
We spent a long weekend at the Dominick. Location is perfect for exploring Soho, tons of restaurants and shopping, close to Chinatown and Little Italy. Staff were universally excellent, helpful, warm. Bed and bedding were super comfy. Great city view from 35th floor.
Great views, large spacious rooms for New York Hotels. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a great location in SoHo. Amazing shops and restaurants. Definetly recommended for business travelers or get away
My girlfriend and I are visiting NYC for the week and we decided to stay at The Dominick Hotel again. From the moment we arrived, we were courteously greeted at the door and proceeded to the check-in counter. Gabriela was there waiting for us and not only was she very pleasant, she showed the utmost professionalism and made every effort to ensure a comfortable stay. On a side note to management, it’s people like Gabriela that creates memorable experiences that keeps us coming back...thank you!!
Once in the room, we ordered some in-room dining and the food was also delicious. We have a few more nights to go but couldnt resist leaving some positive feedback on an already great experience so far.
