Tribeca Studios was a reasonable choice if you need to stay in that general location. It is within walking distance to a few good parks and the local Natural History Museum, but those are the only big draws. The lobby and reception are clean and nice. The rooms are large, but mine was quite dirty. In particular the walls are scuffed up. My room had a balcony, but the door blocked the noise from the street poorly. If you plan on staying here bring ear plugs. The breakfast each morning is ok. It has a selection of breads, yogurts, teas, and coffee. The highlight is the staff, although most cannot speak English, some can and all of them are exceptionally kind. They made the stay much better.
