DeNiro's Downtown Hotel Voted Best Place for Romance
[Note: Today is unofficially celebrity hotelier day.]
We don't quite get this. About.com assembled a list of Top 10 New Best Hotels for Romance for 2006 and listed at #8 is Robert DeNiro's Downtown Hotel in Tribeca, which we last reported wasn't opening until 2007.
Here's what About.com has to say:
Robert DeNiro is planning to add a hip new hotel to his downtown portfolio, which already includes the Screening Room and the Tribeca Film Institute. His boutique, seven-story, brick-and-terracotta hotel at North Moore and Greenwich Streets in the historic neighborhood is scheduled to open at the end of 2006. It will have 83 rooms and feature skylights, angled windows, and distinctive Manhattan manhole covers built into cornices.
With someone describing the place as an "overbaked shit cookie" we're not quite sure this place will exude romance. Maybe a sex toy package will do the trick?
