The location was convenient to walking any where or hopping the subway to our destination. The part of Tribecca where Canal Park Inn is located is clean, friendly, charming and relaxed. I much preferred the neighborhood to the upper east or west sides because it really felt like a neighborhood and everyone was welcome. The staff (Brendan was our main contact) was friendly, gracious, helpful with tips about anything we might be interested in (restaurant recommendations, other attractions). Kip, the owner, was equally warm and friendly. We ran into him or Brendan a few times on the street, and they always recognized us and made it feel like we were part of the neighborhood.
The Inn itself is charming, quirky, comfortable. I really felt like I was going home when I was done with my day's activities. The layout was great for our group, making it easy to have a large suite for entertaining our friends who hadn't been lucky enough to get reservations. I can't wait for another trip to NYC and plan to stay at Canal Park Inn again.
