  1. Sounds very nice. I wonder how those hotels compare to the best hotels in NYC, such as the Tribeca Grand.

  2. These are full service destination hotels, not boutique properties like the Tribeca Grand. If you represent the Tribeca Grand we'd be pleased to visit the property on one of our visits to Manhattan and do a first hand report for our readers.
