From the Frederick Hotel be ready to be immersed into one of the most premium neighborhoods of NYC, where the likes of Robert Denier and T Swift call home. It is a place filled with classy establishments that exude NYC elegance. My stay at The Frederick is unparalleled in terms of a boutique hotel going above and beyond for its guests. They have a wine happy hour for those who enjoy a good drink, and even a floral arranger who comes in every Friday in the lobby that can make you a bouquet.
However, my favorite thing about staying at The Frederick is that they offer guests a free tour at 10 am on Wednesdays. If that date doesn’t suit you, check out the map in the elevator where you can find the other Triumph hotels that offer free tours for guests of any triumph hotel on different days of the week.
I also was never at a loss when it came to food or coffee options. The Frederick had not one but four dining establishments: Starbucks, Serafina Italian, Sweetgreen, and also Primo’s for cocktails.
For a small hotel, this luxurious boutique stay created a welcoming environment in the middle of a big city.
