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
The Greenwich provides a unique 5 star experience with great service, classy decor (De Niro Sr. art throughout), a quiet yet convenient location in Tribeca, allowance for breakfast at the excellent Locanda Verde restaurant, well equipped gym, free (except alcohol) minibar, etc. A lot to like!
This is my favorite hotel in the world. I have been to hotels in many countries and many cities and this is the top of the list. I hate to even call it a hotel because staying at the Greenwich Hotel is like staying in a beautiful home. Every room is warm, welcoming, comfortable and furnished perfectly. Each room is unique but all are equally charming. The beds and linens are top notch. Efforts are made to stock NYC-based products which I love. Robert DeNiro has his artwork all over the hotel and it is so interesting to see. The staff is just incredible. They are so nice and helpful and they create an atmosphere of comfort instead of formality and stuffiness. The drawing room is the most beautiful common room that is limited to guests of the hotel where you can stay all day or all night and have food and/or cocktails. You can sit in front of a fireplace and read a book or sit on the couches and chairs with friends and enjoy an evening without ever having to leave the hotel. There is also a beautiful private courtyard adjacent to the drawing room if you prefer to be outside. If you are rich, famous, or a celebrity, nobody bothers you and if you are an ordinary person like me, nobody treats you any differently then the celebrity next to you. The spa on the lower level with the swimming pool is also just a wonderful place for relaxation and fantastic services.You stay at the Greenwich Hotel to step back from the bustle of NYC and balance it with comfort and tranquility. I just cannot say enough about this hotel and thank the staff for keeping it so beautiful and for treating people so nicely and with such respect.
I stayed at the Greenwich for 3 nights during Fashion week - so much fun!! The staff is young, easy going but at the same time super professional! My room was beautifully furnished and the bathroom had the nicest old tiles and faucets, very stylish! I had breakfast in the courtyard - a small paradise in the middle of NYC. I even saw some VIPs...
