“Nice hotel, but too shabby chic for me . . .”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

I travel frequently to NYC for work, and have stayed at this hotel a few times in the past few years. My work colleague who travels even more frequently loves this place, and will not stay anywhere else. He finds it incredibly homey. I am not as much a fan. The style is cluttered -- overstuffed sofas that look "lived in" in the lobby, "distressed" wooden floors, chintz coverings. Sort of what you might find in a well-cared for English country house on PBS. I like minimalist design, and this is the opposite of that. In addition, there are times when the prices are upwards of $700 per night, which seems too crazy, even if it's on the company's dime. A few perks -- all snacks in the well-stocked mini-bar are free (which leads one to binge on tasty free chocolates), and there are full size shampoos, conditioners, moisturizer from trendy Red Flower in the bath. The Tribeca neighborhood is great -- lots of nice restaurants nearby.

I love this area of Tribeca as i used to live nearby in the 1990's. This quirky hotel has a suitably downtown vibe; all the rooms are different with the decor carefully designed to appear to have been thrown together with inherited furniture etc and the employees all seem to be 20 something chaps , all effortlessly neat,stylish and meaning well ( but not all that experienced in the tricky business of running a great hotel.) There is a great , dimly lit pool with a japanese feel in the spa. My main problem with this slightly expensive wondrousness is that it uses the next door restuarant , locanda verde for its catering and it doesnt open till 8 am which is useless for business travellers. The staff offer to get coffee/ food before then but they either forget whos responsibility it was to get it from the restaurant or the restaurant forgets etc. also, the lounge tables arent suitable for eating drippy poached eggs from ( they are knee height) and it all seems a bit of a bother for the staff. Overall then, a fine place to explore downtown from as long as you are not an early riser and as long as you realize that there is no catering that is owned by the hotel onsite.

TheGreenwich, General Manager at Greenwich Hotel, responded to this review, 19 June 2012
Thank you so much for your comments however we are sorry to read that your experience with breakfast was not to your liking.
We do have 24 hour service in both the Guest Rooms and in the Drawing Room, and the full breakfast menu is available in the Drawing Room from 7am and, as you said, the restaurant opens at 8am.
Certainly we agree that the Drawing Room is furnished as a Drawing Room, and does not have restaurant tables, but that is its charm and it is such a popular spot for our guests to take breakfast and dinner simply because of the roaring fire, and its cozy and welcoming setup up.
With kind regards
Philip Truelove

It is really a fine hotel! It is a unique experience. Even a New Yorker could be impressed by the celebrity sightings but I am more impressed with the discretion of the hotel. Service was great, room was great. Can't wait to go back. Only note that the spa has a cancelation policy - so don't book it unless you are serious!

What a nice hotel. Great attention has been put into the decorating of this hotel and to the overall feel. We felt as though we were in Europe. The room was very nice and was very clean. I sat on the bed covers and walked around the room barefoot, something I am often reluctant to do in a hotel. I loved the shower. Our room faced the courtyard and was very quiet. Breakfast was wonderful. We ate in the courtyard. The staff was very courteous. I was definitely return to the Greenwich Hotel.

I cannot fault this property. The hotel is an exquisite luxury boutique and my personal preferred style- elegant but a mix of rustic European with stunning hardwood floors/beamed ceilings, colorful furnishings. Tribeca is also one of the best areas of NYC- cobblestone streets, great restaurants and shopping downtown. Laconda Verde is also one of my favorite restaurants in the city. If you can afford to stay here, do it! You will have a wonderful time.
