My preference is always somewhere small and original as opposed to large brands but with that comes risk. We had nothing to worry about .. we had a fantastic stay. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Getting breakfast in was a real bonus and tasty !! We were in the Sinnot suite and whilst I can't speak for the... More

After flying for 16 hours and an hour train trip we found our suite clean and ready – 9 o’clock in the morning! A weary traveller cannot appreciate this enough. The Sinnot Suite was large enough for three adults. We stayed for 2 nights, and slept like babies. The rooms are sound proof, so no street noise (or even the... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Canal Park Inn for two nights and three days. I'll start by saying it was an extremely convenient place to stay.

This is an unusual find in NYC. A 200 year old property, which takes you back in time. The rooms are not huge, but perfectly comfortable. The breakfast was a lovely experience, made from scratch by the owner. The best thing about this place is the reception you receive. Very helpful, booked us a taxi to La Guardia, lots of... More

The Canal Park Inn is a rare gem in a part of town that is known to be home to some very expensive boutique hotels.

Sofa couch made into bed. Absolutely unacceptable as a bed. Very nasty and uncomfortable. Bathroom needs maintenance to even be considered safe. Shower curtain barely attached. Dangerous. Kitchen refridgerator freezer was filthy. Unacceptable. Also, very unstable and unbalanced when opening and using. Closet cabinet was unstable and almost dangerous to use. Outside deck was trashy and needed work and refinement.

The tone of this review saddens me. I think we can and should all do better when speaking to and about each other. None-the-less, I’m sorry you were so unhappy with your stay here. I want to address your perception that our bathrooms are old, need upgrading and are, therefore, dangerous. They have been upgraded. Consistent with our 1826, landmarked... More

We enjoyed a delightful stay at the Canal Park Inn for 11 nights (one of our pilgrimages to Broadway - we saw 9 shows). The Sinnot suite was perfectly adequate for our needs, very quiet at night even though facing the street (triple paned glass windows) and provided nooks and crannies enough for us to stash away three large suitcases...

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighbourhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighbourhood home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled on the border of Soho and Tribeca, our landmarked 1826 Canal House is ideally situated for experiencing the best New York has to offer—and still having a quiet place to call home at the end of the day. Surrounded by 5-star restaurants and a block away from the landscaped parks, open grass, tennis courts, and stunning sunsets at the Hudson River Park, we strike a perfect balance between nature and culture.The Osborne’s have owned 508 Canal Street since 1980. In this building, they raised their daughter, providing the building with family history built into the very walls. (Behind a renovation wall on the top floor of the building is hidden a mural painted by children at a particularly creative third birthday party.) The beds and several end tables in the Inn were built by Kipp Osborne, coming from the days when he and his wife, Margot, were furniture makers in Soho and Tribeca. ... more   less
