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
Enjoyed our quick stay at The Greenwich. We were very impressed with the staff. Friendly helpful and engaging. The common areas were beautifully decorated for the holidays. Our room was eclectic in its decor but very comfortable. Did I mention the generous snack basket that is complimentary? Also enjoyed a meal at Locanda and it was delicious. Breakfast the next morning in the atrium was so relaxing we didn’t want to leave! We will definitely have to return! Thank you for the hospitality and the gift of wine that was waiting in our room after we returned for the evening.
There is no better boutique hotel in nyc. The service, food, courtyard (for guests) - unique rooms. Little nyc edge but not in a bad way. Location is great for downtown - little tough w traffic to go uptown or midtown. But I consider this my nyc home. The spa is awesome, great gym.
From the craziness of New York, it is such a treat to walk through the doors of the Greenwhich Hotel.
It feels like a private club, with a library, comfortable lobby seating, roaring fireplaces.
When work takes me to this part of the city, I so look forward to staying here. It makes me feel far more stylish than I am.
Wonderful hotel, the restaurant food is delicious and very authentically Italian. Wine excellent also.
Spa is lovely, pool perfect oasis in a crazy city. Great facilities.
This is my home away from home in New York City. Everything is amazing- impeccable service, comfortable rooms, super friendly staff who go above and beyond to please me, gorgeous spa, fantastic gym, quiet location, and tons of privacy. It’s by far my favorite hotel in the city.
