The 99-seat Roxy Cinema plays independent, foreign and classic films throughout the week, and there’s a concession stand with retro popcorn maker outside. At weekends it’s free for hotel guests; the kids’ film is at 12 noon and then there’s a New York classic shown at 4.30pm. To zip along the cobbles of Tribeca and beyond, just ask to borrow a bike from the fine-looking fleet of Priority Classic bicycles. They’re available in spring, summer and autumn (and trust us, if you value having feeling in your fingertips, you wouldn’t want one in winter). If you're arriving with a four-legged friend (the hotel is extremely accommodating), take a short walkies for free access to the dog park at sister hotel Soho Grand, where pups lap up the fire-hydrant water stations and, we assume, admire the Rebecca Cole-designed surroundings.

Our favourite rooms
It’s worth plumping for a Studio or Suite for the lovingly picked vinyl, record player and Marshall speaker, and the extra space you’ll need for all that booty-shaking. The marble-walled Penthouse is the entertainer’s domain, with a monster 60-inch TV, and panoramic views of downtown Manhattan from the living room, dining room, and private roof terrace.
There’s no spa on-site, but the Roxy has a partnership with Aire Ancient Baths, a few minutes’ walk away on Franklin Street. There, relax away from the city that rarely lets you; perhaps with the signature two-hour escape, which includes 90 minutes of ‘oohs and aahs’ in swelteringly hot and soothingly cool thermal pools and a recuperating rest on heated marble stones. For a pre jazz spruce up, pay a visit to Blackstones hair salon, which is handily in the hotel itself.
Pack your dancing shoes and a second pair, just in case the first gets worn out. No need for end-of-night flats, as a flop into bed is only ever a lift (OK, elevator, if you must) ride away. If you’re in a room with turntables, bring your favourite LP to rock out to.
All communal spaces and guest rooms are accessible by ramp or elevator. There are 11 wheelchair-user-friendly King Superior rooms, with bathroom handrails and shower chairs provided.
The Roxy is so pet-friendly that they’ll even lend you one – ask in advance and a goldfish will be waiting in your room. If you prefer to BYO, the hotel provides bedding, food, bowls and organic treats from Bocce’s Bakery. See more pet-friendly hotels in New York.
All ages are welcome. Cots can be added to all rooms and potties, highchairs and toys are provided. Babysitting is $30 an hour for one or $35 an hour for two children, for a minimum of four hours (must be booked in advance).
