Inside, the feeling is tranquil and just a little bit decadent. The super-spacious central atrium, originally designed by Larry Bogdanow of Bogdanow Partners Architects, offers an airy vaulted core reminiscent of grand cathedrals as well as Hitchcockian mid-20th century public buildings like the old Penn Station or the Singer Building. A mix of mystery and lush precision defines the modern New York hotel, creating an atmosphere unparalleled in other New York City accommodations.
Recently reworked by designer William Sofield of Studio Sofield, the atrium plays host to one of the most happening scenes in the city—the downtown New York nightlife destination Church Lounge.

A true lifestyle hotel is as elegant in the day as it is seductive at night—a key ingredient of the Tribeca Grand atrium.
