The Greenwich Hotel

The Greenwich Hotel was opened by New York hoteliers Ira Drukier and Richard Born, together with Raphael and Robert DeNiro. The common areas of the Greenwich set the tone for craftsmanship throughout.

With twelve-foot ceilings, bookshelves and a wood-burning fireplace, the Drawing Room is the perfect place for an intimate lunch. Lining one side of the room are antique mirrored glass and French doors that lead to a small courtyard, where guests can dine beneath latticed vines.

There are 88 rooms, of which no two are alike. The furnishing have been drawn from a wide range of cultural influences – from the hand-loomed Tibetan rugs to the patterns of Moroccan tiles, to the reclaimed wood details throughout, natural materials have been used. Rooms have Dux beds, oak floors, soaking tubs and small libraries. Shibui Spa, a true haven for relaxation and rejuvenation, houses a lantern-lit swimming pool and lounge under the roof of a 250-year old wood and bamboo farmhouse. There are four separate treatment rooms, a shiatsu room, and 1000 sq ft fitness room.

Locanda Verde is a casual, neighborhood Italian inn and adjoins The Greenwich Hotel serving Andrew Carmellini’s riffs on Italian cooking. It is an airy, bustling, high-ceilinged space, flooded with light and open to the street.

Accommodation

This 88-room hotel in desirable Tribeca has an eclectic, lived-in feel, thanks to one-of-a-kind furnishings like Moroccan tile and hand-woven Tibetan silk rugs, and a meticulous design (all the bricks were made by hand), creating an overall effect that’s more wealthy-friend’s-townhouse than big-city-hotel.

Each of the guestrooms has a personalized touch, and no two are alike. The decor and furniture were gathered from around the world — handmade Moroccan tile in bright yellows and reds, reclaimed oak for the floors, hand-woven Tibetan silk rugs. You won’t find overstuffed sofas here. With ultracomfortable beds by Swedish company Dux and Carrara marble or tile bathrooms big enough to linger in, all rooms have an understated luxury akin to a private home.

Some of the hotel’s greatest assets are outside the rooms. At the basement level, guests will discover the lantern-lit swimming pool, a rarity in New York City hotels. The roof was rebuilt beam-by-beam by Japanese craftsmen using materials from a 250-year-old bamboo farmhouse. The guests-only Shibui Spa has four treatment rooms, including a traditional Japanese bathing room. The spa’s signature massage, the Saki Ki, involves compression with hot sake towels that detoxify you as they relax you.

Privacy and seclusion are two buzz words that apply to the Greenwich — which is no surprise, as Robert De Niro is one of the owners. The lush interior courtyard has rustic accents like wooden benches and wicker furniture; the elegant drawing room usually keeps a roaring fire going and has snug leather furniture for curling up with a book or a loved one.

Locanda Verde, famed chef Andrew Carmellini’s taverna located within the hotel, is a popular neighborhood spot. Serving casual Italian fare like Carmellini’s grandmother’s ravioli, and with a wine list of more than 100 affordable options, the cozy space is perfect for a candlelit dinner.

Gastronomy & Bar

The Restaurant

Locanda Verde is where chef Andrew Carmellini dishes up high-end Italian comfort food – wood-fired rabe sausage, roasted garlic chicken. The colour scheme is all warm earth tones, the lighting low and the ambience seductive.

Hotel Bar

Guests, glitterati and meedja moguls sup bellini martinis at Locanda Verde’s Parisian-style bar, which packs in the punters on weekend evenings. The wines and vodka menus are distinguished and lengthy, and if you’re into grappa, this is the bar for you.
