The street level floor is lovely! Sprawling, high ceilings, huge windows, lots of nooks for sitting and tables for working. When I showed up around 8 p.m. and entered into the main lobby/street level, I walked into a really cozy scene.
“While many small space hotels of the micro or pod variety feel super stripped down and totally unwelcoming—this hotel takes a different tack… furniture and layout maximizes space in smart not spartan ways.” – Rebecca Misner
There was music playing, young, hip people on sofas and chatting (granted, it was fashion week, but the low price, good design, and the location in Tribeca pretty much guarantee it will always be filled with young creatives), great low-level lighting, and the sweetest little bar where I ordered a glass of wine and a slice of almond cake (obviously more important than checking in or dropping my luggage in my room).
