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
My husband and I visited the Walker Hotel last weekend. I wanted to give a shout out to the amazing staff members: Stacy-Ann, Ivanna F. & Cameron. I visited NY for work and also had a wedding over the weekend. Stacy-Ann & Ivanna were extremely helpful (and complimentary of my outfit - always a sure way to get bonus points). Cameron was super helpful and on top of helping us with our bags/directions. All around all-star crew!
The bar was also cute & cozy and the bar staff was fantastic. We'll definitely be returning! - Love the Delvas :-)
My husband and I stayed at the Walker Hotel last weekend. I'm writing a quick review to acknowledge the AMAZING staff! Stacy-Ann, Ivanna F. & Cameron were awesome. They were considerate, caring and on top of things. I specifically appreciate their friendliness and willingness to help even when inconvenient for them. My husband and I will definitely be returning!
PS. The bar was super cute and the bar staff was also fantastic. Thank you!
I think the Walker Hotel is amazing. Everyone here is really nice and helps you in any way. One person I recommend is Stacy-Ann. She is VERY helpful and is very kind. The hotel is awesome too. The historical feel to really just make the whole experience way better. I feel like this hotel is really the best.
