The Greenwich Hotel Not Super Expensive for Tribeca Film Festival
Considering that Greenwich Hotel owner Bobby DeNiro is also the man behind the Tribeca Film Festival, we expected his hotel to be either sold-out or ridonkulously expensive, like the Kentucky Derby hotels.
To our genuine surprise, we found rooms on April 22nd, the start of the film festival for a mere $475 a night via the hotel's website. That was for a 325-sq.ft. courtyard room, one of the starting room categories. The Greenwich Room (395-sq.ft.) was going for $525. Sure, these aren't recession-friendly prices but they aren't as jacked up as they could be.
Looking for an even cheaper stay at the start of the festival? Over on Quikbook.com, Smyth was just a mere $177 a night from April 22-25. The festival runs through May 3 so you have plenty of dates to consider. Of course, that all depends on which film you want to see.
