The once super secret hotel project at 130 Duane Street has silently crept along with little fanfare. The Duane Street Hotel, designed by Gene Kaufman Associates, readies itself for a December launch. Hotel GM Jeffrey M. Stegman explains, “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 "minimalist designed" rooms (pictured) will have standard boutique hotel amenities like plasmas, and even personal business cards upon arrival for executive travelers. The rooms also appear to be laid out, um, lengthwise, for that real Tribeca Loft experience.
