Rated 4 out of 5 by CrownOfThistles Good location, deals to be found, average rooms and staff
Stayed here a few times since it appears the prices are regularly some of the best value for a full-service Starwood property in NYC.
Though the hotel is right on bustling Canal St. you're right by TriBeCa, SoHo and the West Village. A short walk to Chinatown and Little Italy. Great subway access to several lines close by.
If you're taking taxis or Ubers avoid getting one at rush hour since the proximity to the Holland Tunnel can make even going just a few blocks a long ordeal.
Staff has been hit or miss from very responsive, to could not care less. Virtually no recognition of Platinum status and nothing really as far as upgrades.
The Club Room can get really packed. Food offerings are paltry and low quality. Lots of previously frozen deep fried bar type food. Rubbery eggs and terrible pastries at breakfast. Decent coffee you can get in a go cup and the view is great though.
While it's not my favorite Starwood hotel in NYC, I tend to return because of the downtown location, the rooms are not too small or cramped even by NYC standards, rooms are in good condition and kept clean overall and they often tend to have good prices which makes it ideal for a few days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rico27 Shockingly bad!!! Never again!!!
In a nutshell, the room was dirty and I never got the upgrade I should have, being a 'valued platinum member' and I was forced to endure a really bad stay with horrendous service even after checking out. Despite all categories of rooms showing being available online at and after check in, and seeing someone else get upgraded to a Manhattan view superior room after he requested it, I just got upgraded to 'a higher floor'! Room was tiny and filthy... fitted sheets were inside out, soiled and the duvet cover stained and covered in hairs! Carpet was not vacuumed (lots of hairs and dirt) and the bathroom looked liked it needed a good scrub and disinfecting. Room had a bad odor, it was noisy from within the hotel and also outside noise. Never received the water or luggage racks I requested despite being assured they were on the way! Club lounge didn't offer the variety and quality of food they used to serve (such as chicken and meat skewers) in previous stays and a staff member said they stopped serving them so that guests can support their new restaurant which was a disappointment. After bringing all this to the attention of the supervisor on duty and having requested to check out immediately after this, I was asked to stay until the next day and was assured I would be refunded all my starpoints used for the award booking! After apologizing profusely and several reassurances from several staff that my stay for the night was complimentary and the remaining days cancelled and the entire starpoints booking would be refunded, it is already more than two weeks later and I have made several calls to the hotel, SPG platinum and tried to email the hotel's official email (but it said the mailbox was full!) but no points reflect back in my account yet! I keep being told it is in the system and it should have been processed within 7-10 days max! But it's now 15 days! Valued platinum guests should not have to spend time, effort and money to get their points back as promised! I can't help but assume that the friendliness, smiles, apologies and assurances are all just fake and for show!
Breakfast was also very disappointing in the restaurant and the service was shocking. Had to get my own cutlery and staff never delivered the decaf cappuccino and orange juice I requested. After asking a second time he instructed a colleague and he then brought me a regular filter coffee! They ran out of scrambled eggs and the variety was very disappointing! Overall a very bad stay! There are many other true 4 & 5 star hotels that offer far better accommodation options in much better locations! Don't put yourself through the stress and disappointment of staying at this property which does not deserve to be rated so highly or charge what it does! International travelers who are used to higher standards will be very disappointed by this hotel! Only stay here as a last resort, but even then don't expect much!

After numerous visits to NYC, and staying near times square, we decided to stay near the area that we prefer to visit while in NYC.
First impressions were such a surprise. We were greeted with smiles and super services by Mia. From curb to room, took about 10 minutes, including a nice briefing about the area by Mia. Upon first glance this area might appear a bit unsafe, but we quickly found out that that was not the case. We took several evening stoles without a second thought.
Location: This hotel is on the border of Tribeca and Soho. Easy walks to World Trade Center, Flatiron, Nolita, Greenwich Village. Subway is about 500 feet from the hotel. Subway ride $3 unless you get a discounted pass. Several restaurants and pubs are around the corner on Church Street. We really did enjoy being able to walk outside and not hit a "wall" of people which is so common while staying in Mid Town.
Hotel: Lobby is nicely done and fresh. Adjacent to the lobby is a very nice bar, Sheraton Link, and an Italian restaurant.
Rooms: Our room faced Canal Street and was very quiet. We were concerned that facing the street would be very noisy, but our room was on a high floor, so street noise was very minimal. Rooms are New York small, but nicely appointed. Room was very clean and the bed was divine. In facing Canal Street, we had a gorgeous view of the city skyline.
There is a lovely roof top lounge to enjoy. We also enjoyed the club lounge offerings which were one of the most generous I have seen in a while. (Breakfast, Evening appetizers, and late night snacks)
I previously mentioned Mia, as she was the most visible to us during our stay while coming and going. But I must also mention the rest of the staff. Everyone was cheerful and the service wonderful. This is our new NYC hideaway! Looking forward to visiting again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bullhaus One of my favorite Starwoods in NYC
- Very friendly and responsive staff
- Sandwiched between SOHO and Tribeca with easy access to both as well as the subway
- Typical Sheraton business type of hotel
- Very nice Sheraton / Starwood beds
- Club Lounge balcony with terrific views of NYC.
- Sandwiched between SOHO and Tribeca on *Canal Street*
- The general Club Lounge experience - including decor, food, and other amenities - is worse than international Sheratons.
- The gym as this location is below average. However, that's ok because of the Planet Fitness in the same building.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjfromMN BEST TIME EVER
I can only say that we felt and were treated like we had big money. The staff from the front desk to the bell hop guys ALWAYS said hello to us and even asked us how our day was. We were there for NCAA wrestling so to know that they wanted to interact with us MINNESOTA FOLKS felt great.
I like how close it was to the subway and yet how cool it was that the shop next door was a cook to order deli and a great purse shopping boutique across the street for her(3 purse-her money- lol lol )
At any rate, all the scary stories told about New York and the people we did not see or experience, it was great. Carlos was our favorite staffer and each day of our 5 day stay he treated us like he knew us for years, "hello" and "good byes" and "welcome back" and "here is a great place to eat".
It was a great experience and i will always speak highly of this hotel staff group because they all seemed genuine and did a great job interacting with us as people not guests!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brad1000000 Love Sheraton Tribeca
This was my second stay here, and I'll surely return again. We used points for the stay, but I note that this property is generally priced lower than other NYC Sheraton and other SPG properties. I think it's newer and better than most, and provides a great value for those staying in the city. We were visiting NYU, and the hotel is within easy walking distance to the Washington Park and a wide variety of fancy galleries, shops, and restaurants.
Platinum was provided a "superior" room with a nice view. The room spacious and offered a dining table that came in handy for eating take out pizza from next door Saluggi's. Finishes were also nice, with plentiful channels on the TV (I think five showtime options alone).
The club level offers a compact lounge space and an unbelievable terrace on the north side. It's really cool in nice weather, allowing for overflow seating, but the lounge can be super crowded in inclement weather. Happy hour is great and runs 5:30-8:30, including several bottled beers, six wine options, and typical soft drinks and snacks. Breakfast was nice, with eggs, sausage, oatmeal, and waffles as well as pastries and bagels from a local bakery (nice touch). There is no espresso machine in the club, but coffee was strong and plentiful.
I look forward to my next stay at Sheraton Tribeca.
