Walker Hotel Tribeca, New York, US

Walker Hotel Tribeca, New York, US

Reigniting its neighbourhood’s sex appeal, the Walker Hotel Tribeca offers a loft-style stay just off Broadway. Rub shoulders with locals who drop in for Blue Bottle Coffee or head to the subterranean speakeasy – this is the roaring 20s, after all.



Tribeca’s
sex appeal has never died out, but beyond The Roxy
Hotel, the area has been slightly lacking in exciting places to
stay – until now. Enter Walker Hotel Tribeca, a suave space that
reimagines a former ribbon and button factory dating back to the
late 19th century. Whether you’re planning a staycation or visiting
from farther afield, this is the perfect spot to have in your back
pocket.

Rooms

Each of the 171 rooms here feels like a sleek loft with a cushy
bed and views of the Empire State Building and across downtown.
Nuzzle under crisp linen sheets and watch a movie as you order
snacks to your room. When it’s time to prep for an evening of
cocktails at Macao Trading Co. around the corner, concrete
basin sinks stocked with C.O. Bigelow products and marble rain
showers tucked behind sliding barn doors await.

What’s for breakfast?

While breakfast options are available in the hotel’s lobby
lounge, we’re partial to the Blue Bottle Coffee stand near the
front entrance, where Tribeca locals drift in and out to grab a
cold brew en route to their gallery or start-up space. If you’ve
got to send a few emails first thing, grab a pain au chocolat and
an oat-milk cappuccino and pitch up in the mid-century-style
lobby.

How about lunch and dinner?

The Restaurant, opening soon, will serve creative, seasonal
meals accompanied by organic wines in a space crafted by Craig
Shillito of Cycle Projects, who are responsible for other NYC
favourites such as Lilia and abcV. Earth-toned and done up in raw
materials, the decor beautifully reflects the eco-conscious and
plant-heavy menu. In the Walker Lobby, you’ll find a 50-seat lounge
serving up lighter fare and cocktails throughout the day.

Is there a bar?

Yes, but keep it hush-hush. The hotel’s subterranean cocktail
bar designed by John McCormick Design (behind Maison Premiere) will
be the ultimate accompaniment to the new roaring 20s, with
cocktails inspired by the Gatsby era. With Paul’s Cocktail Lounge and Macao
Trading Co. literally steps away, this underground bar built into a
vault dating back to the Victorian era is the perfect spot to start
a weekend night with a bang (and to show off a cool new find to
your friends). For something more low-key, the cellar reading room
serves up cocktails that make the ideal tipple before heading up to
your room.

Amenities

The 11th-floor terrace bar (opening soon) looks over Midtown and
straight down Broadway. You may notice a few cheeky winks to
astrology on the cocktail menu – order a drink with your star sign
in mind. If you need to sweat it all out after a night bar-hopping
through Tribeca, the in-house gym is on the lower level floor for
easy access. The gorgeous lobby is kitted out with Pierre Jeanneret
loungers and a library selling art and travel books by Phaidon and
Assouline, while the cushy leather sofas framing a fireplace act as
a centrepiece to the room.

Things you should know

The hotel is just off Broadway, so shopaholics should make this
their go-to for easy access to SoHo’s boutiques.

Within a short walk you’ll find…

Le Botaniste for delectable plant-based bowls, Paul’s Cocktail Lounge for dancing
and the ancient Greek-style Aire spa for complete
relaxation.
