An intimate, modern chain hotel
The lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn is modern and bright, with soaring floor-to-ceiling windows facing the street. Nice extras such as free morning coffee and tea, afternoon baked goods, and an attractive two-sided gas fireplace help make the hotel more intimate and personal than some may expect from the brand.
In trendy TriBeCa, within walking distance of SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown
The Hilton Garden Inn TriBeCa is on a busy and somewhat bland street in northern TriBeCa, and the Canal St. stop on the A, C, E subway line is literally right outside the hotel's front door. The posh shops and restaurants in SoHo are within walking distance, and the subway offers easy access to popular sight such as the World Trade Center Memorial, Wall Street, and Times Square.
Clean and functional, with microwaves, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs
Rooms are average in just about every respect - size, décor, and amenities are all typical for a chain hotel of this caliber. The brand's signature Sleep Number beds get mixed reviews. Lower-level rooms facing the street can get a bit of traffic noise, while rooms facing the interior courtyard are quieter but have less appealing views.
24-hour business and fitness centers
The HGI TriBeCa has both a 24-hour fitness center and 24-hour business center, and though neither are huge, they're plenty large for a hotel of this size. The 24-hour Pavilion Pantry offering snacks and drinks is a staple of the brand, and there is also an independently owned restaurant, AOA Bar & Grill, attached to the lobby.
This modern Hilton Garden Inn delivers on all the brand hallmarks (free coffee and tea in the lobby, free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour Pavilion Pantry) - and then some. There's an on-site restaurant, AOA Bar & Grill, serving breakfast and dinner, and the A, C, E subway line, offering easy access to Times Square, Wall Street, and other popular sights, is literally right out the front door. Rooms are clean and functional, though some face an unappealing interior courtyard.
