Triumph Hotels introduces Sylvia Zofio-remodeled Frederick Hotel in Tribeca

Triumph Hotels, a collection of Manhattan properties, introduced the newly remodeled and reimagined Frederick Hotel in Tribeca, with 130 redesigned guestrooms, a new lobby and a new three-story Serafina Italian restaurant. A lobby lounge and cocktail bar constructed from reclaimed bricks found in the hotel’s historic vault are both slated to open this winter.

The former Cosmopolitan Hotel first opened in 1845 as the Gerard House. Past guests of the property include Abraham Lincoln, said to have slept there in the 1850s, and Vincent Gallo, who stayed in the property in the early 1980s when it operated as The Bond Hotel.  The hotel’s new name, The Frederick Hotel, is derived from a rendering of the property, though it never actually operated as The Frederick until now.

The new lobby and guestrooms were designed by Sylvia Zofio, principal of SZ Projects.  Zofio aimed to express the building’s history through design elements from different eras, creating a mix of old and new. Lower East Side branding agency Rivington Design House developed the logo and consulted on the hotel’s interior design.
