“Canal Street find - Third year in a row!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Third year we have come from Vermont to audition opera singers. We love staying at Canal Park Inn - we take over all 4 four rooms! Easy drive in on the Hudson Parkway - easy parking at Pier 40 - but the best is the charm of this gorgeous spot and the great customer service. Breakfast is served - fabulous waffles, fruits, yogurt and granola and unlimited coffee.

Bed linens are important to me - the beds are comfy and the linens are as soft as butter.

Although we audition in mid-town - we love to escape to the quiet, peaceful lower west side - great restaurants in all directions. This year we discovered a fabulous French restaurant - Cerque Rouge - a short walk from the inn.

Want to come back in the spring - the Batby suite has a deck and table for eating outside (and a full kitchen).

This place is an escape from the craziness of NYC - but just a walk, subway ride or cab from all the attractions!

Room Tip: All rooms are gorgeous - if you are there for more than a few days - I would choose Batby as you can...

We stayed in the Kennedy room for 4 days and loved every minute! After walking the city on cold December days it was great coming back to the warmth and coziness of the Inn. Sarah greeted us upon arrival and we were treated great from then on. The breakfast was delicious in the Playhouse and Kipp helped us out a lot with our first experience in Nyc. Even learned a little of the history of the neighborhood. We will definitely be back!

Quaint, historic Inn only 2.5 blocks from the #1subway line (with stops in Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Times Square, Columbia University, etc.). The rooms are lovely, well-equipped and QUIET. Breakfast is very nice with a good selection and excellent quality. Sheets were the softest I have ever felt! We have found our pied-a-terre in Manhattan!

We had a delightful stay at the Canal Park Inn on a nippy November weekend. We came up for a concert at the nearby City Winery (fabulous) and a weekend of exploring (such fun), and it was great to have a suite to return to when we were ready to put up our feet.

We stayed in the Sinnott Suite in this charming 19th-century row house. The bedroom is the size of many entire NYC hotel rooms -- plus there is a separate sitting room, bath, and kitchen area. The building is delightfully quirky with low ceilings, exposed brick work, wood floors and operable windows.

Breakfast downstairs was tasty with nice options, and our hosts were friendly and helpful. It was easy to set out on foot to explore -- and when the time came to check out, they helped us with a car service to the airport (cheaper and less stressful than the cab that brought us in).

This is not the place to go if you thrive on glitz and glamor. But for a quiet retreat in a bustling city, the Canal Park Inn can't be beat.

We stayed at the Canal Park Inn for our wedding ceremonies which were held in Tribecca. The Batsby room was exactly what we were looking for. The room was spacious, clean, and charming. We loved the outside terrace. Kipp Osborne was our host and couldn't be more accommodating. We highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in lower Manhattan.

Room Tip: We loved the Batsby for its outdoor veranda.

My husband and I stayed at the Canal Park Inn in November 2013. Built in 1826, the Inn's rooms instantly provide a glimpse into old New York City, while convenient to the villages and a scenic riverside stroll. Our hosts were friendly and helpful; the breakfasts are simple, yet delicious and filling. We would definitely return to the Inn on a return trip to NYC.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sinnot suite, which has loads of character by virtue of its narrow "living roo...

Clean quiet comfortable room in a charming old building with exceptional service. Rooms are away from the street and associated noise. Short walk from the subway. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. The quintessential B&B.

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
