Greenwich Village, or as New Yorkers refer to simply as “The Village” is home to some of the city’s best old-time jazz clubs, pubs, restaurants, and now a new boutique hotel which has become a destination in the heart of this rich and vibrant part of New York City. The Jade Hotel has taken inspiration from the Bohemian and creative culture this neighborhood is so well known for, and created a charming elegant hotel that is truly authentic. Its classic Georgian architecture warmly sets the stage for the plush, romantic interiors bedecked in velvet with decor that reflects the intrigue and timelessness of this historic area. The lobby is filled with character and adorned by countless bookshelves replete with volumes by West Village writers. It is the ideal setting to sit back into a cozy corner near the fireplace, book or cocktail in hand, while glimpsing out through the windows at the bustling street outside. The Jade Hotel is the harmonious fusion of urban modernity and vintage charm.
The 113 Parisian inspired rooms are just as authentically decorated as the entrance and lobby, taking cues from the elegant art-deco era. The deep, rich color palette of blues and reds accentuated by Deco-inspired prints and polished wood and period chrome transport you to a realm that is boho in spirit while maintaining its elegant and luxurious feel. The perfect blend of ambiance and function, the rooms are stylish, comfortable and come stocked with amenities for your every need. They feature European designed bathrooms with textured black and white subway tiles and C.O. Bigelow bath products. Most rooms boast glorious city views, others including the impressive Greenwich Penthouse even have stunning vistas of the Empire State Building.
The city that never sleeps surely has no shortage of options when it comes to dining. But the convenience of having a posh bar and top dining establishment, Grape & Vine, just steps away is priceless. Start with a specialty cocktail or a wine from their carefully curated collection before heading over to your table to indulge in delectable artisanal American fare. Elegant and artsy, the room has a speakeasy vibe with decor reminiscent of the Gilded Age. Savor the well-varied American nouveau dishes, each with its own twist, like the NY state Burrata, wild mushroom risotto, and Mahogany Ale fish and chips. Open until 2 am, you can take your time dining in comfort and style at this chic Village oasis.
