I recently took a course in NYC and had to find a place to stay last minute. When the Canal Park Inn popped up from an Internet browse, I gave a call. From my first conversation with Sara to the delightful room and yummy breakfasts that followed, this inn became a definite 'find'. Tucked into the quaint area of TriBeCa yet near the subway and entrance to the Holland Tunnel, the Canal Park Inn is amazingly quiet and soothing (said from a gal who lives in rural CT). Get ready for a comfortable rest, easy access to everything in the city, and friendly hosts. I only wish the course had lasted longer!
- Also Known As:
- The Canal Park Hotel New York City
- The Canal Park Hotel
- 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
