My fiance and I stayed at the Canal Park Inn for two nights and three days. I'll start by saying it was an extremely convenient place to stay. There was restaurants and spas and walks by the water and the subway was nearby. The room was beautiful ! It was such a comfy feel. We loved staying in a historic... More

This is an unusual find in NYC. A 200 year old property, which takes you back in time. The rooms are not huge, but perfectly comfortable. The breakfast was a lovely experience, made from scratch by the owner. The best thing about this place is the reception you receive. Very helpful, booked us a taxi to La Guardia, lots of... More

The Canal Park Inn is a rare gem in a part of town that is known to be home to some very expensive boutique hotels. We stayed in the Kennedy room and found it very clean and very comfortable; the AC kept us cool during a heat wave! The Kennedy room bathroom was clean and bright; I felt safe and... More

Sofa couch made into bed. Absolutely unacceptable as a bed. Very nasty and uncomfortable. Bathroom needs maintenance to even be considered safe. Shower curtain barely attached. Dangerous. Kitchen refridgerator freezer was filthy. Unacceptable. Also, very unstable and unbalanced when opening and using. Closet cabinet was unstable and almost dangerous to use. Outside deck was trashy and needed work and refinement.

The tone of this review saddens me. I think we can and should all do better when speaking to and about each other. None-the-less, I’m sorry you were so unhappy with your stay here. I want to address your perception that our bathrooms are old, need upgrading and are, therefore, dangerous. They have been upgraded. Consistent with our 1826, landmarked... More

My daughter (age 17), son (age 14) and I went to NYC for two nights to visit our favorite restaurant (Union Bar & Kitchen, right around the corner from Canal Park Inn), stroll around Soho and see some sights (Tenement Museum, which was great), and take in a show (School of Rock --awesome).

We enjoyed a delightful stay at the Canal Park Inn for 11 nights (one of our pilgrimages to Broadway - we saw 9 shows). The Sinnot suite was perfectly adequate for our needs, very quiet at night even though facing the street (triple paned glass windows) and provided nooks and crannies enough for us to stash away three large suitcases...

This was my 3rd time in New York and it was my best sleep so far. I read a lot about guesthouse hosts that say they like to meet and help the guests, but that's nothing compared what you can expect from Sarah and Kipp... They were awesome, the best hosts ever!!!

On a note of caution: if you are seeking the full hotel experience, this is not the place. It is a bed and breakfast. But it is an excellent, outstanding one. The suites are very large.

We spent 4 nights at the inn-the property was about what we expected from the website and previous reviews. Kip and Sarah Doe were great! Both did everything we asked of them to make our stay pleasurable. The breakfast was adequate to start the day. The location is very convenient -close to the subways and other nyc attractions.

I chose the Canal Park Inn because there were three of us staying together. We were in the Batby Suite and had plenty of room. If we were there longer than 2 nights we would have enjoyed having the kitchen but we were not in the room enough to utilize it. For people looking for a super modern state of... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.

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
