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
- 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
Stayed here for a birthday treat from my wife and I must say was very impressed
Didn’t have much expectations but the room was lovely and clean 2 good size beds room large enough very good location for time square maces Empire State Building and the metro
Staff here very accommodating and polite bar and restaurant next door very nice felt very Christmassy definitely recommend this hotel
Awesome for a family! More room than most NYC hotels. Subway half a block down and can walk to Times Square. Nice to have a walk in closet to change and store our stuff. Good shampoo and conditioner. Like the big bottles!
Exceptionally clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Great central Manhattan location, convenient to subway, just around corner from Empire State Bldg. Beautiful character hotel for that NY experience :) Note: bldg is central hot water radiator heated, needed to use in-window a/c unit to cool room while sleeping - kept us comfortable to sleep.
When we arrived our rooms weren’t quite ready but we were able to leave our cases whilst we headed out for the afternoon
We had the king size room which was plenty big enough for what we needed. A huge comfortable bed, armchair, desk, walk in closet with safe, bath with shower over it. The room was kept lovely and clean throughout our stay.
Tea & coffee were available next door in a morning. It’s a shame drinks making facilities aren’t available in the room.
There is a restaurant next door Brendan’s as the hotel does not have any food or bar facilities.
The location of the hotel was fabulous.... right by Macy’s and the Empire State Building. Walking distance to Times Square, 5th Avenue & Central Park. There is also a subway station 100 yds away.
The taxes on this hotel were quite high we felt once all 3 were added together.
The staff were all really helpful when we were planning excursions etc
We would use this hotel again if we return to NYC
Absolutely terrible customer service over the phone lead me to not want to book with the hotel. Complete sass from 2 ladies and lack of customer care. If that's what the stay would be like then no thank you.
