The Smyth Tribeca is welcoming guests again, this time as a newly independent hotel. The 100-room hotel first opened as a Thompson Hotel in 2009 and was rebranded an AKA property in 2018. Now, after being closed since March 2020, Smyth Tribeca will be run by Highgate, a real estate investment and hospitality management company.

“On behalf of the entire team at Smyth Tribeca, we are thrilled to open our doors amidst such a poignant time of revival for New York City,” says Evan Altman, Senior Vice President, Lifestyle Hotels, Highgate. “We look forward to once again being an integral part of the fabric that makes up this vibrant community.”

 Smyth Tribeca has nearly 5,000 square feet of meeting space across five indoor and outdoor spaces. The largest, the 2,000-square-foot Penthouse Suite, which includes an outdoor terrace, accommodates 75 guests for a standing reception. Later this year, the food and beverage program will undergo a transformation including a new restaurant, lobby bar and private event space. smythtribeca.com

With high-tech, low-touch amenities like self-check-in at airline-style kiosks and deliveries via YO2D2, the hotel’s friendly resident robot, YOTEL Boston is well positioned to welcome meetings back comfortably and safely. Now as part of its “SmartStay” safety measures, the property, which has 326 guest rooms, or “cabins” in YOTEL lingo, has introduced a second robot, Vi-YO-Let, to offer UVD-grade sanitization and disinfection throughout high-touch public spaces and selected rooms.

 

Promising “a modern stay in Amish country,” the Wyndham Lancaster Resort and Convention Center has completed the final phase of a $30-million multi-year makeover of the entire property, including its 317 guest rooms, event space, common areas and grounds.

 

After being shuttered for two years, while it underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation, The Langham, Boston, has reopened its doors, restored and reimagined. “Guests of The Langham will surely notice the extraordinary transformation that came with the great deal of time and care, tying it seamlessly back to its Boston banking heritage but with a fresh, luxurious touch,” says Michele Grosso, managing director of the iconic downtown Boston property, which has 312 guestrooms, over 13,000 square feet of function space and two dining venues.
