New boutique offering planned in NY

The Duane Street Hotel, an
intimate 45-room, six-story upscale boutique hotel is scheduled to open
after the new year at 130 Duane Street on the corner of Duane and Church
Streets in the landmarked Tribeca area of New York City.Named for the triangle of city below Canal Street, Tribeca is one of
the most exciting neighborhoods in New York City replete with galleries,
restaurants and the annual Tribeca Film Festival. Tribeca is located
between the bustling financial district of lower Manhattan and the SoHo
retail district to the north.
  The Duane Street Hotel was designed by noted architectural firm Gene
Kaufman Associates and renowned interior design Paul Vega to integrate the
unique character of Tribeca with the needs of sophisticated travelers and
guests of the hotel.
  “The mission of Duane Street Hotel is to provide a unique refuge of
timeless comfort, unrivaled service, and incomparable courtesy that will
create an unforgettable guest experience,” notes Jeffrey M. Stegman,
General Manager of the hotel.
  “We have developed a hotel at ‘neighborhood’ scale—a small,
service-oriented hotel that will engender loyalty and long-term stays from
our guests.”
  “The intimate environment provides a relaxed atmosphere that makes a
guest feel like the Duane Street Hotel is their home away from home,” adds
