AKA, the luxury hotel residence brand, opened its sixth property last month, AKA Tribeca —formerly the Smyth Hotel.

“For the debut of our global AKA brand in Tribeca, one of Manhattan’s most prestigious and creative neighborhoods, we are infusing the hotel model with our core residential values and creating a vertical village for our guests,” said Larry Korman, president, AKA. “We want guests to feel at home in the elegance and privacy of AKA Tribeca, where they can work in one of the lounge nooks, enjoy a meal at the restaurant, have a cocktail at the bar and work out in the fitness center. We have learned from our portfolio that laundry is a heavily desired amenity for many guests, and we will also be incorporating that luxury into the hotel.”

The designer for the project, Jennifer Post, also worked on Korman’s private home. The lobby includes a charcoal and bronze color palette, with a modern gas fireplace and vintage seating. Dramatic touches include the black porcelain flooring, glowing marble bar and metal-and-glass globe lighting fixtures.

The street-level restaurant is Little Park by James Beard award-winning Chef Andrew Carmellini. The restaurant focuses on hyper-seasonal menu offerings and also provides the property’s in-room dining.

The property includes 100 guestrooms with king beds, walk-in showers and large closets. Business travelers will appreciate the plentiful charging ports, WiFi, Amazon Echos and Chromecast TV systems.

Penthouses include separate living areas, terraces and views of Tribeca and SoHo.
