WE stayed five nights and found the host and his daughter Sarah to be very pleasant and welcoming. However, this is an old building which has been up-dated, but the stairs are narrow and steep, and the propritor has another theater business on the property which he is much more concerned about, asking hotel guests not to walk around the...

I’m sorry and surprised this guest was disappointed. He came to us with friends who have been making annual trips to NYC for many years. Perhaps it was their charming southern manners, but I never had an inkling anything was amiss during their stay with us- quite the contrary. It was the first time one group has occupied our entire...

I stayed 4 nights at the Canal Park Inn and it is a great place. The Kennedy room is really cosy, the staff is great and I really felt at home. The location is close to restaurants, wholefoods, metro (line 1) and everything you would need in Tribeca. And for a very good value, really recomend it.

It was our first trip to New York and the wealth of accommodation available made it very difficult to choose where to stay, however, we feel that we couldn't have made a better choice than the Canal Park Inn. The welcome was warm and friendly and the staff went out of their way, above and beyond what was expected to... More

three of us stayed here for 8 nights and everything was perfect. Hosts, Sarah, Sarah and Kip were extremely helpful in every way possible. It is close to the subway and easy walk to SOHO and Chinatown. As out of towers (Australians) we felt right at home here and would definitely go back to stay there if we visited NY... More

Had a terrific visit at the Canal Park Inn. The Kennedy Room was terrific. Nice, basic breakfast. Quiet room - as it is not facing the street. Location is ideal - close to the Village - shopping, restaurants, comedy galleries, etc. Close to subway. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat! Oh - and the sheets were HEAVEN!

Love the Canal Park Inn! We stayed at the inn last weekend for our annual girl's trip to NYC. I'm in charge of planning the trip each year and we always try to stay in a different area each time. We had the Batby Suite which was at the back of the building so we heard very little road noise.... More

The Canal Park Inn was just as we expected it: tiny, cozy, comfortable. We loved so much the position because even if it was right on Canal Street (lot of traffic) it wasn’t a loud place at all.. it was quiet and peaceful, still being in the heart of Manhattan! The position is perfect because you get to Soho, Tribeca... More

Arrived to a very friendly welcome and a homely ambience. We had the Kennedy room at the back of the building away from the road so it was pretty quiet. The room was just our style! Plus it was clean, tidy, with comfortable bed, had all you needed (mini fridge, microwave, hair-dryer, teas & coffee making facilities plus that all... More

Fantastic location, our apartment was BIG and even had a patio. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We got a real taste of what it's like to live in NYC, cannot recommend it enough.

The B&B is a converted historic building with narrow, steep stairs leading up to the rooms. It's safe and secure and unusually quiet for a place in NYC. Our room was lovely. Very comfortable bed, flatscreen TV, coffee maker, microwave, minifridge, high quality linens and some information on the surrounding area (Tribeca). The easy, unscenic walk to the subway is... 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
