What makes a good hotel? Well, for me, its service, its the feeling that you're more than a credit card with a person attached; and maybe also its a good feeling about the room, that its quiet and stylish and well thought out and super comfortable (Denot and Kennedy are excellent) and its about value, that you're not being ripped off, a pawn in someone's fancy business plan but that the people you're paying actually might consider staying in their own inn. The Canal Park Inn clears these hurdles effortlessly, but then it does something else, because its more than an inn, its a unique theatre too, and in a world of too many sterile hotels, to live temporarily above a small working theatre is a very refreshing and heartening experience. And they have a great cafe too. Impossible to dislike : seriously....don't look anywhere else, unless you have unusual tastes or needs, you will come away delighted by your stay here.
- 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
