From our first communication with Sarah Doe and Kip to our last wave from the taxi window as we headed for the airport, no question, this is the best place we have stayed in our many trips to New York. The room (Denot Suite) was clean, spacious and thoughtfully furnished with period furniture. An ample kitchen area with all the amenities except stove meant we could keep drinks and snacks cold in the fridge or make coffee whenever we liked. This house is located in Tribeca, so there is lots of interesting stuff to see and do right in the neighbourhood. Breakfast is served in the small restaurant downstairs that adjoins the integrated theatre and it's light years away from the usual stale bagel and grey coffee many hotels dish out as breakfast. Waffles, French toast and granola with fresh berries - all are excellent. No question, now that we have found this place, it's our home away from home in New York.

- 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
