Hotel Name: Sheraton Tribeca
Location: New York, NY
The Room(s): If 288 square feet seems large to you, then you’ve likely stayed in a New York hotel or two. That’s what you get with a typical king bed room at Sheraton Tribeca New York. For the size it’s furnished just about right, save for a little cramping around the lounge chair and wardrobe. The smaller furnishings (32″ TV instead of a more standard 40-something, smaller chairs, desk, etc) might help with the floor space. I didn’t find it too difficult to move around but if you’re Texas sized, you might want to spring for a suite.
At the time of this review (Jan 2012), the room maintains a modern feel and despite the small size is pretty comfortable. The sweet sleeper bed easily fits 2 and is indeed sweet and the decor fits Sheraton’s newly refreshed image.
Service: We spent a lot of time inside the hotel on this visit simply because there was expected hurricane-like weather. The staff was gracious and for the most part very friendly. There were some issues waiting for food service at the bar, but would be unfair to grade them here as conditions were truly out of the ordinary.
Perks: This was a very basic room with no extras. There’s a club-level option if you don’t mind paying extra for staying on this special floor.
Location: Tribeca and Chinatown meet right around here. Very close to SoHo shopping too.
Overall: Little rooms in the Big Apple are the norm so this is slightly above average. The fresh decor and hotel amenities give this one a little extra boost.
Rating: 3 Hops (out of 5)
The Deal-How I got it: Cash and Points options aren’t typically available at peak times for this hotel, but I was able to use the option for this visit. This isn’t normally an inexpensive option but competes with other hotels in the area. Check for sale rates (support modhop) at
