What Are The Hot Hotels for the Tribeca Film Festival This Year?

April 2, 2010 at 9:25 AM | by | ()

It's almost that time of year again—when De Niro's "little" film festival hits downtown New York, and locals complain about how they couldn't get tickets. Again. But enough about the actual movies, what about the hotels? Which ones will be the hotspots of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival?

Oh sure, there's the old standbys, the Tribeca and SoHo Grands, De Niro's own Greenwich Hotel, and Thompson's Smyth Tribeca—which is one of the festival's official travel partners. But we have a feeling that most of the Page Six-style action will take place just a little further from Tribeca. Say, in SoHo, or the Meatpacking District.

The invites for all the film co. bashes haven't started pouring in yet, but we're putting money on places like The Standard, The Crosby Street Hotel, and the Jane Hotel as the go-to hosts this year. And let's not forget nearby Trump SoHo, which will have just a few weeks under its tall glass belt before the festival is in full swing. Can't get fresher than that.

Unless, of course, you're the W Downtown New York, which is still on the schedule for a May 4 opening. With the film festival closing on May 2, there's sure to be something happening here, no? A pre-opening party on the roof, perhaps?

Meanwhile, the Tribeca Film Festival has a surprising sponsor in the AKA Hotels of New York. The three AKA properties are offering festival attendees rates from $275 a night. The special package for film-nerds also includes a snack pack to take to screenings, the help of a Film Festival Concierge, access to a movie-lending library and screening room for watching special festival footage, and a free fitness class at the AKA Central Park's new gym. The promo code for this package is TFF2010.

Meanwhile, we'll bring you more Tribeca Film Fest party and package deets as they start to emerge. (Y'know, after this whole Easter thing.)
