On Wednesday, Aug. 26th Tribeca’s hautest hotel, Smyth, unveiled the second phase of the hotel’s refresh.

Located at 85 West Broadway on the corner of Chambers Street, the 14-story hotel features eclectic mid-century modern furniture and fabrics. Reimagined by Soho-based Gachot Studios, the hotel’s guestrooms and four suites—the Penthouse, Smyth Suite and two Thompson Suites— boast floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping views of downtown Manhattan. All guest rooms are light and neutral, with creamy linen window treatments, warm wood bed frames, and vintage walnut desks and chairs. Each room also includes custom cotton throw blankets by ALT for Living, ceramic lamps by Stone and Sawyer and a classic Eames shell chair from Modernica.

“We are ecstatic to unveil the next chapter of this hotel’s legacy,” said Smyth General Manager Pedro Dias. “The redesign features an understated elegance that transitions the hotel into a new era.”

The suites resemble the classic pied-a-terre, featuring similar tones and design elements as in the guestrooms. The plush quarters include their own dining and living rooms, with unique, timeless vintage pieces. Inside are custom black sisal area rugs by ALT for Living, lounge chairs upholstered in a Gachot-designed custom striped fabric, pendant lighting by trans-LUXE, sofas by Montauk Sofa and Bensen, custom coffee tables fabricated by Woodworks, and eclectic artwork.

However, the plush new designs don’t stop there. The ultra-luxe penthouse features an oversized master bedroom, lavish living area, full dining room and kitchen with a wet bar for entertaining, plus an 800-square-foot landscaped terrace with a palette of warm wood and black accents. The Smyth Suite includes a spacious master bedroom, living area and dining room with a 300-square-foot terrace.

“The best part about Smyth was I could walk right outside the hotel doors into the heart of Tribeca and shop locally for pieces to use throughout the hotel,” said Christine Gachot, co-founder of Gachot Studios. “We set out to create a familiar and functional space for guests.”
