Grande dame glamour in downtown duds. Far from the gold and gilded, the lobby shows its polish in handmade floor tiles, hand-woven rugs and bespoke furniture in rich velvets and leathers. Dropped beam ceilings add a rustic edge and the air of a private home, while folding screens and wood lattices create private pockets for business types, celebs and gossiping fashionistas to go incognito.
Bed and Bath
All 88 rooms are individually designed with their globetrotting guests in mind: The smallest are over 300 square feet, lights are on dimmers, blank walls trump bad hotel art, and WiFi, soft drinks and a diet-busting selection of snacks are free. Furnishings are plucked from around the globe, with Tibetan silk rugs on the stone floors, English leather sofas, Carrara marble, hand-crafted Moroccan tiles and supersoft Duxiana beds from Sweden. Bathrooms feel hammam-like thanks to mosaic tiles on floors and walls, and they have power showers and deep tubs (in most), as well as toiletries by NYC-based Red Flower.
For a relatively small hotel, the Greenwich is packed with amenities. The on-site restaurant, Locanda Verde, is an enduring hot spot serving Italian tavern fare in a lively dining room. Guests can also drink and dine in the private lounge, which is kept cozy with mismatched sofas and armchairs, stacks of art books and a roaring fire. They can also make use of the quiet, leafy courtyard, which is open throughout the summer. Downstairs, the state-of-the-art gym is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the sanctuary-like Shibui Spa has a lantern-lit swimming pool, four treatment rooms and a pampering menu of massages, body treatments and more.
How to Get There
I enjoyed another wonderful stay at The Greenwich this week - friendly, efficient and helpful staff, great location as I prefer to be downtown, superb Spa and one of my favourite restaurants. Can’t fault it, well done!
My favorite hotel in New York. A great boutique hotel with an amazing spa, lobby and outdoor courtyard. The location is unbeatable, right in the middle of Tribeca. The private lounge for guests is a great addition, as is the penthouse room (private rooftop and full apt).
I booked the studio suite on the Greenwich Hotel three days before my visit. When I arrived, I was told their computer system made a mistake and they do not have my room available. They never reached out by phone or email. They offered me a terrible standard room instead on the first floor. If a hotel cannot honor a reservation that was guaranteed by credit card, why stay there? The Greenwich Hotel front desk and management are just classless and unprofessional. There are so many other hotels in Tribecca to stay that are so much better. It is my mistake for trying this place. If you make a reservation and secure it at the Greenwich Hotel, don't be surprised when you show up and do not have room or place to stay.
