Smyth Hotel - TriBeCa NYC's youngest contender in modern luxury hotel scene

Just under a year old, the latest addition to Thompson Hotel's family, the Smythoffers the same casual sophistication they are known for with a custom-tailored interior suited to its TriBeCa location with understated wine-toned rooms, mini-bars stocked with Dean & Deluca gourmet snacks and incredible BBGarchitecture.
Upon entering the hotel, guests pass through the lobby designed by Yabu Pushelbergdown a dimly lit hall to reach reception, where they are greeted by staff members dressed in Helmut Lang-designed uniforms and a wall of antique toys.
Each room offers a high level of comfort and style, featuring an LCD flat-screen TV, iPod dock, DVD player and Wi-Fi, with laptops and cell phones available upon request. The penthouse—large enough to fit 75 people—makes the perfect place to throw a party.
Amenities like 400-thread-count Sferra linens, terry robes by Frette and Kiehl'sproducts stocked in the marble bathrooms add to the overall stylish comfort, while the full bath and separate shower replete withHansgrohe rain showerheads indulge you the way a hotel should.
The ground floor of the Smyth includes Frederick Lesort's latest French-inspired brasserie Plein Sud, and the Smyth Lobby Bar, serving lighter fare and drinks.
Rooms begin at $350 a night, to book visit the Thompson Hotels website.
