Took my granddaughter to visit NYU (She will be attending in the fall) It was her first trip to NYC. The hosts of Canal Park Inn were lovely and welcoming. The room was small but adequate. We felt quite safe and had nearby subway access. Many sights are walkable if weather is good. Location is perfect but noisy. Guess I... More

My husband and I and our 13-year old granddaughter stayed here for five days during spring break this year. We wanted a place where we could all be together and have space to sit and relax after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. The photos we looked at led us to believe the Batby Suite was larger than it... More

We are so sorry and surprised that you were disappointed in the size of your suite and encountered cleanliness issues! Our policy is to clean duvets between guest stays, so I'm not quite sure how your duvet was not fresh. However please know that you can always tell our staff about a situation like that- we want your stay to... More

Came here with my wife to get more acquainted with the burrough of Manhattan. The location of this Bed and Breakfast is the best you can ask for. A stone's throw from the pier in the Hudson River.

In November 2011, my wife and I spent a week in NYC for our honeymoon and stayed in the Batby Suite at the Canal Park Inn, a family run B&B in Tribeca. What a great little B&B! To start, it's a great location right next to the Holland tunnel. If you take a shuttle from the airport, you will likely... More

we stayed as couple in november 2011 on a vacation-trip to NYC. the "suites" have a unique charming ambience to them - you could almost call those rooms antique - i liked it, my girlfriend less so - its not everybodys cup of tea. Sinnot suite we stayed in features a narrow kitchenette with coffee-making machine + tiny couch/TV-area, the... More

We found this inn through iloveinns.com. My husband and I stayed in the Sinnot room. The bed was VERY comfortable. The room itself was clean and nicely decorated and had a small kitchen (no stove/oven but with all the restaurants in NYC, no need to ever cook). It was really nice to have a small fridge to put drinks in.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Canal Park Inn for two nights in early October and simply loved this quiet, unpretentious, well located spot in the world. Aside from the comfy beds and charming furnishings, it is a stone's throw from Hudson River walking, either uptown to Highline Park and beyond or downtown to Battery Park City. A subway... More

Four fabulous rooms in a well-renovated 1826 house with a charming 40 seat theater!. I was traveling with others for auditioning opera singers in NY and stumbled on this wonderful spot on the internet. We needed four rooms and couldn't have been happier. I was ready to move in! The Batby suite is bigger than many NY apartments. Full kitchen,... More

We stayed at the Canal Park for a romantic, birthday weekend for my wife. Normally we go to B&Bs in the countryside, so this was the perfect combination of the big city and a nice quiet escape. And it is surprisingly and pleasantly quiet inside this old house, despite the busy tunnel traffic outside. Our room was beautiful, spacious, and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled on the border of Soho and Tribeca, our landmarked 1826 Canal House is ideally situated for experiencing the best New York has to offer—and still having a quiet place to call home at the end of the day. Surrounded by 5-star restaurants and a block away from the landscaped parks, open grass, tennis courts, and stunning sunsets at the Hudson River Park, we strike a perfect balance between nature and culture.The Osborne’s have owned 508 Canal Street since 1980. In this building, they raised their daughter, providing the building with family history built into the very walls. (Behind a renovation wall on the top floor of the building is hidden a mural painted by children at a particularly creative third birthday party.) The beds and several end tables in the Inn were built by Kipp Osborne, coming from the days when he and his wife, Margot, were furniture makers in Soho and Tribeca. ... more   less
