What We Love
- Opened in spring 2015, the Gregory is the revamped and rebooted version of the original 1903 Hotel Gregorian and retains many of the building’s original features
- All 132 guestrooms have an elegant, masculine style in muted grays and midnight blues
- Mod cons include free WiFi and bath products by Apotheke, and King Rooms have dead-on views of the Empire State Building
- The lobby is part café (free coffee is served from 7 a.m. to 12 noon) and part cocktail bar (after 4 p.m.), and the next-door Brendan’s Bar and Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner
What To Know
- The guestrooms are snug, but they use the space well
- Brendan’s Bar and Grill, a classic Midtown Irish-American pub adjacent to the lobby, serves as the hotel restaurant but does not supply room service
- Dogs under 50 pounds are welcome (one per room) for a $250 refundable deposit and a $50 fee
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
In the heart of New York’s Garment District, just blocks from Herald Square, the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden, the Gregory Hotel reopened after a tip-to-toe revamp in spring 2015. Formerly the Gregorian, a historic New York property dating back to 1903, the Gregory now has a sleek but timeless interior style, a library-like lobby and 132 elegant guestrooms. The rooms are New York–snug but use the space well, done in unfussy white, gray and inky blue shades, with raised platform beds, leather-wrapped side tables and work desks. All of the rooms have flat-screen TVs, full-length mirrors and simple bathrooms that sport a cool NYC mix of white subway tile walls and black-and-white mosaics on the floors, as well as bespoke Apotheke amenities. Downstairs, the gorgeous, masculine lobby does double duty as the morning coffee shop between 7 a.m. and noon and a clubby lounge with a must-go cocktail happy hour beginning at 4 p.m. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant as such, but Brendan’s Bar and Grill, right next door, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In the Area
You’re just a short walk from all the restaurants, galleries and nightlife in Chelsea and the lights of the Times Square theater district. For a dose of retail therapy, take your plastic downtown to the Meatpacking District and hit Diane von Furstenberg’s flagship as well as such designer stores as Yigal Azrouël, Carlos Miele and Alexander McQueen. If you prefer culinary indulgence, head to Chelsea Market and gather picnic essentials among the cheesemongers, lobster purveyors, bakers and gelato makers before checking out the sunset views over the Hudson from the High Line, an elevated park.
How to Get There
Not a luxury hotel but the staff was great - Milady & Edgar! Very friendly and accommodating, welcoming and sending off!
Fitness center REALLY tiny and not well ventilated but you can get a small work out in. Mostly cardio.
Room was clean and comforting. I liked the complimentary use bath robes. Bathroom had a hint of a historic feel but modern.
Did not enjoy the double doors outside my room that banged alot with other guests going in and out. WiFi dependable.
Loved Brendan's next door - especially when they could open the front windows. Also exceptionally friendly and accommodating.
Location was around the corner from my business meeting spot so worked out very well.
We had a good stay. The hotel is located smack in the middle and easy to reach.
Very friendly staff who stand ready to help and guide you right.
Rooms and bathroom clean and nice. For the rooms with connecting doors, remember that doors are thin and it is easy to overhear things. The couple beside us seemed to have a good time :-)
Front desk staff were so welcoming and accommodating. Lovely chill lobby with places to sit and chill with bar attached. Location was superb. I love being in midtown! The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. Would stay again!
