AKA Tribeca

A sleek retreat in Tribeca

Within moments of walking into the 14-story AKA Tribeca, you will want to set your bags down and start lounging in the sleek lobby bathed in gray and bronze. Take a seat on the sinuous 1960s Cloverleaf sofa and warm up by the inviting fireplace. Or retreat to one of the nooks created by black-tinted glass and bronze screens to sit in the wingback chairs next to oversized black-and-white photos.

If you want to add a libation to the modern, cozy scene, follow the black porcelain tiles to the glowing marble bar. Perch yourself on a barstool under the metal-and-glass globe lights and burnished bronze inlay at a.bar, order a classic cocktail and soak up the vibe.

Be sure to also visit Little Park. A dining destination in Tribeca, chef Andrew Carmellini’s restaurant and bar turns out fresh, seasonal food (bonus: you also can enjoy Little Park’s fare via room service).

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Savor a meal at Little Park from touted chef Andrew Carmellini, whose other restaurants include the popular Locanda Verde.
  • At the top of the boutique hotel are the penthouses, which open up to beautiful terraces. They are quiet, charming garden oases in this bustling city.
  • Located in the heart of Tribeca, it has numerous subways stations nearby. Plus, it's a quick walk to Brookfield Place, One World Trade Center and its observatory, Soho boutiques and Tribeca’s trendy restaurants.
  • a.bar draws you in with its glowing backlit wall. It’s a sleek spot for a glass of champagne, wine or something stronger.
  • AKA Tribeca has a stylish new look. Whether you linger in the lounge or head up to your room, the gray-heavy décor remains soothing and modern. All spaces feature black-and-white archival prints and photographs of vintage New York and old Hollywood, an homage to the Tribeca Film Festival and owner Larry Korman's film interests (he's a sponsor of the famous festival).

Things to Know

  • When your feet tire of walking (and they will in New York), you can always forgo hoofing it and take advantage of the hotel’s complimentary car service, an amenity that covers a 10-block radius.
  • The lobby-level a.bar has a no-tipping policy.
  • While the luxury hotel has a gym, you may want to take your workout outside and walk or jog along Hudson River Park, the nation’s longest riverfront park.

The Rooms

  • All rooms have Chromecast on-demand programming, but the contemporary, sophisticated Platinum Collection accommodations also come with Amazon Echos.
    • Bathrooms are done up in Carrara marble and have walk-in, glass-enclosed rain showers.
    • For the best accommodations, opt for the penthouses (called Specialty Suites), which offer separate, spacious living rooms as well as expansive leafy terraces overlooking Tribeca and Soho.
    The Restaurants

    • a.bar maintains a sexy nighttime atmosphere that’s just right for relaxing with a classic cocktail likeThe Last Word with gin, green chartreuse, Luxardo Maraschino and lime.
    • For guests in need of a large space to host a dinner party or special brunch, the New York City hotel offers a private dining room custom catered by chef Andrew Carmellini's restaurant Little Park, the 85-seat eatery upstairs.
    • If you find yourself in need of breakfast, lunch or dinner, make Little Park one of your stops. Carmellini executes fresh seasonal dishes, including beet tartare, black kale ravioli and spiced shellfish ragu. Keep in mind, because of their seasonality, these are subject to change, but fear not; other just-as-tasty options will come in their stead.
    • Aside from dining in the airy restaurant, you can get food sent to your room 24 hours a day, though this menu is pared down to a more travel-friendly spread. In the morning, try a multigrain waffle with banana; for lunch, order a grass-fed beef burger with aged cheddar; and for dinner, nosh on the fish of the day, wood-grilled and served with salsa verde. All this is delivered to you while you enjoy the accommodations in your plush Frette bathrobe.
