Smyth Tribeca – Tribeca Hotels

Smyth Tribeca is a luxury hotel located in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan. The hotel is part of the Thompson Hotel Group, and like all the hotels in the group, offers the pinnacle of New York luxury. Custom tailored to its Tribeca location, Smyth celebrates the neighborhood’s vibrant history and contemporary lifestyle, offering an intimate hideaway with 100 guestrooms. Smyth Tribeca represents a modern vision of sophisticated elegance as imagined by designers Yabu Pushelberg, mixing sleek design with vintage accents to create a truly bespoke hotel. The Thompson Hotel Group prides itself on its discretion – both in terms of the location of its hotels and the guests who stay there. The Smyth, following in the footsteps of this ideal, is a play on the anonymity of Mr and Mrs Smith.

The Smyth Tribeca boasts an on-site restaurant, Plein Sud.  Frederick Lesort’s latest concept in a series of French-inspired restaurants, Plein Sud Restaurant & Bar a Vins brings affordable and authentic Brasserie-style cuisine to Tribeca. Located in the chic Smyth Hotel, Plein Sud is open from 7 am to 11 pm, the bustling energy of the brasserie flows freely from the front bar to the main dining room. Executive Chef Ed Cotton, former Chef de Cuisine of BLT Market, is crafting Plein Sud’s market-fresh and seasonal menu, and will feature an array of dishes influenced by the rich and diverse gastronomic heritage of France with a nod to its southern regions.


There are also two drinking destinations at Smyth Tribeca – Toro Lounge and Smyth Bar. The Smyth Bar, adjunct to the lobby, is eclectically sculpted, featuring sumptuous fabrics and a mix of Brazilian modernist furniture and vintage pieces – making for a comfortable and intimate destination. Meanwhile, Toro Lounge, Smyth’s lower-level cellar cocktail lounge offers a luxurious hideaway for guests and locals alike.

Location

Smyth Tribeca is located on West Broadway in the heart of Tribeca, which is one of downtown Manhattan’s hippest neighborhoods. Tribeca is home to Justin Timberlake, Robert DeNiro, Jay-Z and more – so you might just rub shoulders with Hollywood’s elite as you stroll the neighborhood’s quaint cobblestone streets. The TriBeCa location of the hotel exemplifies the regeneration the area has enjoyed since De Niro launched the internationally renowned TriBeCa Film Festival in 2002 that helped the area recover post-9/11 (TriBeCa borders Ground Zero). Today, the first residential neighborhood to be established in New York back in the late 18th-century is also one of its most exclusive; in 2006, Forbes magazine listed its zip code as the city’s most expensive.

Bordered by SoHo, Chinatown, the Financial District and the Hudson River, TriBeCa’s landscape is similar to neighboring SoHo. A former hub of the cotton industry, most of the residential blocks are former industrial buildings. While the area is mostly residential, there are plenty of boutiques: one-of-a-kind rather than the chain stores you find elsewhere in Manhattan. Stroll down Duane Street and you’ll find yourself in antique heaven. Trendy local bars include the Knitting Factory, a hangout of choice for those in the know on the alternative music scene. There is an extensive array of restaurants, including a branch of fashionable Japanese restaurant Nobu on Hudson Street – the neighborhood’s epicenter. In short, in Tribeca, you can live a life a luxury – even if only for a short holiday.
