Amid TriBeCa's historic warehouses and trendy art galleries sits this boutique hotel, a fashionable addition to the neighborhood. Light pours in the loftlike windows of the comfortable rooms, which have hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs, in-room iPads, and compact desks; photographs of the neighborhood provide a sense of place. Sophisticated bathrooms have slate floors and rain showers. Complimentary passes to the nearby Equinox gym are provided. Mehtaphor, a full-service
restaurant from renowned pastry chef Jehangir Mehta, serves Asian- and Indian-inspired fare and provides room service. Children will love the library of kids' books that can be checked out at the front desk.
