A staircase sweeps you down from the street into a copper-ceilinged lobby where velvet chesterfields form discreet nooks and books line the shelves around a marble fireplace. Pass through the velvet drapes to find the low-lit, crimson-hued bar of Grape & Vine.
Bed and Bath
There’s a throwback Parisian charm to the 113 rooms. Think lacquered ebony headboards, mercury mirror armoires and vintage rotary telephones. Geometric Deco wallpaper echoes patterned panels that hide HDTVs and your smartphone hooks up to a retro-styled Tivoli radio. Bathrooms lined in white subway tiles have showers with amazing water pressure, Frette bathrobes and fragrant C.O. Bigelow products.
Cozy up at the red velvet booths in Grape & Vine for market fare like spring pea and cucumber gazpacho or Long Island duck breast with heirloom carrots. It’s a great place to grab oysters and drinks before heading out for a night on the town.
In the Area
The hotel’s location on 13th Street and 6th Avenue puts you within walking distance of some of New York’s hippest nabes (the Meatpacking District, West Village, Union Square and Chelsea). Head west and grab picnic provisions at Chelsea Market before walking the High Line, a park built on elevated train tracks that stretches from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street. At night, join the parade of pretty people heading to the rowdy ballroom at The Jane, a club that looks like a Wes Anderson movie come to life. In the morning, head to Saturdays Surf, a coffee bar/surf shop, then browse the designer boutiques lining Bleeker Street. For lunch, try the legendary burgers at perennial celeb-fave Spotted Pig.
How to Get There
Staff are motivated and delightful across the board, reservationist, reception, housekeeping, bartender and engineer. Little historical touches, rich wood tones and luxurious fabrics engulf you in Art Deco and fit in well with the attractive building. The location is almost perfect for easy walks and little restaurant gems abound. A lot of well thought details. I do prefer larger rooms with a couch and small sitting area and much bigger bathrooms. Glad NYC has boutique properties like Walker that thrive and good luck in Tribeca come the fall.
Stayed for three nights with my daughter for a 16th birthday trip. Staff was terrific! Sent a hand written birthday note and piece of cake to our room. Check in and out with luggage storage was easy and pleasant. Beautiful blue bottles of water sent up to the room at no charge whenever requested. Cookies at turndown. They called a car for us to get to the airport that was less expensive than Lyft or Uber. Terrific location on a beautiful street close to 14th street and Union Square stations. Rooms are small but square footage is listed so shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Looking forward to returning to the Walker Hotel for my next trip to NY.
Great view from the 15th floor of our room of the Towers and the Village. Loved being in the neighborhood near Union Square and Washington Square. Hotel near lots of restaurants and stores. I've stayed in various hotels around the city and this was my favorite. The room was small but lovely. The lobby was welcoming and so was the staff.
