Trump SoHo New York is a little different from other downtown hotels and even from other Trump properties. Here are five things you should know about the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star New York hotel:
1. It’s kid-friendly. It might be downtown and it might not scream kid-friendly, but Trump SoHo New York, like other Trump hotels, does welcome kids. The Trump Kids program offers cribs, bath amenities, maps with kid-friendly spots highlighted, children’s menus, board games and more.
2. The view is good. If you’ve been staying in Soho, you’re probably used to a view of the brick building next door. Well, you should be moving on up at Trump SoHo. Be sure to request a room on a high floor. The 46-story glass tower offers views of the city and the Hudson through floor-to-ceiling windows. Reserve a high floor for the most spectacular panoramas. If you choose a Superior room, ask for one on the 19th floor, the highest this room type goes.
3. The neighborhood is ideal. If you haven’t been staying in Soho, here’s the deal: At the corner of Varick and a pretty empty patch of Spring Street (apart from the convenient Starbucks), the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is a few blocks west from the bustle of Broadway. Depending on how crowded you like things when you walk out your front door, this can be a good or a bad thing. Still, Soho’s famous cobblestone streets and much of Tribeca and Greenwich Village are within easy walking distance. (Stay on a low floor, though, and you might have a view of the Holland Tunnel.)
4. Service is top notch. The Trump Attaché basically means you have a friend while on property. The butler service can handle everything from stocking your fridge with all your favorite snacks to handling your dry cleaning to setting up a computer for you in your room.
5. Try the restaurant. You’ll certainly want to visit Trump SoHo’s restaurant, Koi, but keep in mind that it’s quite popular at night, especially Thursday through Saturday, so it’s wise to have the concierge team make a reservation for you in advance to avoid any waits. And trust us, you’ll enjoy your meal. The sushi is fresh and delicious, and the sleek Asian décor is worth seeing.
6. Order in for a group. Trump SoHo’s in-room dining menu offers a special “hospitality” section intended for in-room entertaining. On this menu you’ll find platters to feed a group of any size, priced per person, including a canapé spread, charcuterie plate, cheese board and Mediterranean selection featuring bites like grilled vegetables, tabouleh and marinated olives. Gather your gang for a quick bite before or after heading out on the town.
