The Roxy Tribeca Grand
Having packed in boldfaced crowds since 2000, this thoroughly urban, 203-room hideaway-hotel in New York trades on its cool factor in every way possible-from its selection of deluxe, up-to-the-minute amenities to the eye-candy staff. Housed in a triangular building at the base of Sixth Avenue, the lobby opens onto a grand, industrial-chic atrium that spans eight floors, and lets in plenty of opaque light. The ritzy Church Lounge serves up satisfying global fare and draws a slinky crowd once the sun goes down. Guest rooms are fully wired and boast Bose sound systems, bath products from luxury apothecary We Live Like This, and special request features such as iPod sound docks or even your own pet goldfish.
