Legendary actor Robert DeNiro is a Tribeca champion if there ever was one, given his creation of the Tribeca Film Festival. He and his partners really hit the ball out of the park with this high-minded hotel that offers 88 rooms and suites, none of which share a layout. All the high-tech needs are met, from wireless Internet and flat-screens to loaner laptops and pre-loaded iPods, while the décor varies significantly. All have fine linens, thoughtful layouts, serene color-scapes, and elegant furnishings, yet some take their cues from Tibet while others from the English countryside. Its Shibui Spa is a highly-lauded Asian oasis – gorgeous, tranquil, and offering a divine menu of treatments – and the chic Drawing Room and Courtyard areas are ideal for closing important deals or cozying up to someone significant.
