Nestled in Manhattan’s ultra-trendy Greenwich Village, this 4.5-star boutique hotel seamlessly mingles with the bohemian enclave and its quaint cafés, townhouses and tree-lined streets. Astonishingly for a brand-new building, its Georgian-style architecture and Lemay + Escobar interiors are as classical and authentic as its historic surroundings.
Traditional, warm materials contribute to the retro, speakeasy vibe, inside and out: wood, copper, wrought iron, tin ceilings, ceramic tiles, and brick. The hotel was a high-rise ground-up development project, yet created in a way to create a timeless intimacy of scale. The hotel – a short walk from SoHo, Union Square and Washington Square Park, gives one the impression of being a personal guest in a private home.
The sumptuous sunken lobby has mosaic flooring and a rich palette of red, purple and silver; a fireplace and Art Deco-inspired wall-coverings and lamps. Playful common area and guestroom accents include subway tile and fully functioning rotary phones, while modern comforts such as mobile docking stations and spa bathtubs ensure a luxurious, memorable stay in one of the world’s great neighborhoods.
