The Roxy is a hotel with character, subtle yet luxuriously sleek featuring classic New York architecture with bold punctuations of colour and style. With a dark almost moody vibe to the exterior and lobby, wood-panelled windows and classic New York style accents, it almost feels like you’re staying inside a classic New York landmark.
On a prime cobblestone corner on the border of Soho and TriBeCa, The Roxy’s location is utterly unrivalled in one of Manhattan’s most unique and rapidly evolving neighbourhoods. TriBeCa is the perfect location just away from the main hustle and bustle of the city but still has plenty of bars and restaurants around.
With the A, B and C trains only a 2 minute walk from the hotel, giving you quick routes throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and towards JFK, it’s still close to the action, allowing access to prime NYC locations. This won’t matter much as the Roxy provides so much in-house entertainment that the thought of leaving may leave you at the door.
The Roxy bar is like a grand atrium, light pouring from the Manhattan sky, with corridors to rooms circling around and all the way up. The bar had regular live music, paying homage to the musical styles the city is famous for with a pianist that takes requests in the early evening and live programming later in the evening.
The Django jazz club offers guests a taste of Hemingway’s Paris without ever leaving the confines of the hotel. The subterranean jazz club, with its vaulted ceilings and exposed brick walls, was modelled after the boites of Paris and features handcrafted cocktails and dinner plates all partnered with a brilliant entertainment lineup.
There’s a cinema downstairs showing movies, modelled after classic New York cinemas, taking you all the way back to the roaring twenties. The constant film and music programming makes it feel like a fun, cultural hub – the hotel feels socially alive but not too crowded.
Jazz music is a big theme throughout, with vintage Marshall speakers in each room automatically tuned to a jazz radio station, adding to the atmosphere of the property. Beds are huge and soft, with furnishings complementing its early 20th century style – think plush brown leather sofas, dark wood wardrobes and floors that create a sense of calm.
GT recommends the Roxy for old souls: lovers of classic architecture, film and music who want to feel the history of the city in the walls.
We promise the Roxy will satisfy any traveller wanting a distinctly NYC experience.
