We had some business way downtown near the financial district and found the Hotel Mulberry on this site. Couldn't believe the price and the quality of the rooms in the photos. Turns out it is all true.
We had the penthouse and the room was spacious and the bed was exceptional. The hotel is clean and well-cared for. The location for us that week was perfect being close to city hall and TriBeCa without TriBeCa prices. If you need to be close to Chinatown, the financial district or Ground Zero do not pass up this place.
Downside? A few, but only for people who want and can afford more amenities in New York City.
The breakfast at a restaurant next door as barely passable - but quirky in a funny way and free is free in NYC (or rather, included), even a cup of coffee.
The lobby was serviceable and a little cramped at times, but since most of the other guests at the time we were there were European, everyone was polite.
The decor was basic, but who cares when you have a great bed to crash on.
Trying to get to other parts of New York can be pricey by cab or a little daunting for the non-subway savvy. Closest station a 6-N-R two and half blocks away. Not bad, but not as convenient as other locations in the city.
All in al,l a great place to stay with a real New York flavor from the neighborhood and the good view (park side). Would stay again.
