Old New York meets European sensibility at Duane Street Hotel, a classy monochromatic boutique hotel in Tribeca, New York. I settled in the Executive King room for a couple of days and it was a delightful experience. The décor is bold, intelligent, modern, and chic, accented with a bit of savoir-vivre. I was quite fond of the interior design as it was spruce and not overly ornate.
The rooms are a reflection of New York City with 11-foot ceilings, ceiling-high windows, hardwood floors, and handsome black tufted headboards. Amenities are luxurious with bed linens by Bellino, plush terry bathrobes by Scandia, and bath products by L'Occitane. Duane Street Hotel is also pet-friendly, a cute and pleasant feature.
Duane Street Hotel resides amidst Tibeca's classic cast-iron façades and revolutionised industrial-era warehouses, emanating a vogue loft feeling, quintessential for a creative living in New York City who has a penchant for style. One will discover cobblestone streets, fashion boutiques, a Michelin restaurant, and independent art galleries. It makes for an impeccable urban hideaway.
