HOOD: TriBeCa, New York City
VIBE: Sophisticated, private member’s club
PROPERTY SIZE: 88 guest rooms and suites
ROOM STYLE: Eclectic. No two of its rooms and suites — mixing Tibetan rugs, English settees and Moroccan tiles with vintage books and flea-market antiques — are alike.
WE LOVE: The new three bedroom TriBeCa penthouse suite.
INSIDER TIP: The hotel exudes confidence, it’s best suited for people of a similar set.
WORDS BY: Jennie Lemon, Travelcall Executive Advisor
The Greenwich is instantly welcoming and irresistibly charming. Eclectic furnishings and adornments throughout give the rooms a personal feel and on frequent returns from sightseeing and shopping, one feels like they’re coming home or visiting a friend… a friend with a stunning assortment of books and artwork, displayed and shared for your use and enjoyment.
Walking in I feel like I’m entering someone’s (very well decorated) NYC apartment.
Located in trendy TriBeCa – itself abuzz with life, restaurants, galleries, and very tasteful shopping (at a price) – the hotel is within easy walking distance to downtown, the 911 Memorial, the High Line, the new Whitney Museum of Modern Art, and SOHO’s shopping streets (suggest a $10 taxi ride home with the loot).
For a hotel with dozens of design distractions, the revel is in the detail. The Greenwich thoughtfully offers complimentary WiFi, mineral water, craft soft drinks, and sweet snacks. The bed is so dreamy, it almost renders the preceding paragraph irrelevant.
The new three bedroom Penthouse was outstanding – very organic in design – and boasts a terrace retreat, large enough for entertaining, and with private spa pool for parties of two!
DINING: The Hotel’s internal courtyard – a green, private oasis – makes the perfect breakfast base. Weather dependent, all meals can be served either in the courtyard or the terrace area adjoining the bar/sitting area.
Locanda Verde is a casual style, open-kitchen taverna, described “offering a whimsical take on traditional Italian”. It’s buzzingly busy, serving lunch and dinner well into the night.
Did we mention it’s Robert De Niro’s hotel? The people watching in the drawing room is as much fun as getting into bed.
