Tribeca Grand, a well-known downtown hot spot for savvy business travelers in New York City, has announced that it will be ringing in the New Year with a new look and name; The Roxy.
The Roxy’s 201 guest rooms will also get a complete revamp in spring 2016, with new designs and custom furnishings, new amenities such as Fretté bathrobes and modern technologies, including Roku.
The Roxy already has refreshed venue concepts to liven up the hotel’s new name, including curated music in the hotel’s updated lobby and a downstairs cocktail lounge. Weekend brunches offer live jazz performances, and on the ground floor there is re-imagined dining by chef Joseph Abburzzese, formerly of The Breslin.
For those looking to stay and play in Tribeca, the hotel will offer several options all under the same roof. The Django, an underground jazz club created by cocktail gurus Vito Dieterle and Joseph Schwartz, was inspired by classic Jazz Age Parisian boîtes. The club has vaulted ceilings, hand-picked vintage lighting fixtures from antique markets and a state-of-the-art Meyer Sound system.
For a more laid-back atmosphere, a new coffee bar by New York brew master Jack Mazzola, Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee offers intimate seating and organic, fair-trade coffee drinks and baked goods.
The first outpost of Blackstones, an innovative, personalized East Village salon is also set inside The Roxy, offering blowouts, barber shop service and the hotel’s Five Wits botanical-based product line. Past clients of this unconventional salon include Alexander Wang, Helena Christensen, and Parker Posey. Designed to mimic eighteenth-century French architecture, Blackstones is outfitted with powder-blue walls, wall-mounted wild life and antique grooming tools.
When it’s time to wind down for the day, guests can visit The Roxy Hotel Cinema, which shows creatively curated movies that recall the “quirky, clever programming” of iconic New York houses such as the Thalia and the Bleecker Street, along films by local directors and independent theaters.
To celebrate the transformation, The Roxy is offering a special deal in conjunction with Hotel Week NYC at a rate of $200/night from January 3 – 15, 2016. Hotel Week NYC is a nearly two-week-long event in which many hotels in the city serve up discounted rates to take advantage of one of the slower times of the year for travel. More than a dozen properties will be participating in Hotel Week NYC in 2016.
