Last weekend I was lucky enough to stay at the Greenwich hotel in NYC, and I was absolutely blown away. This boutique hotel truly makes you feel like you have an apartment in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in NYC (Tribeca). There are many reasons to stay here for your next NYC getaway, and I have listed out my favorite ones below. Shameless plug before you read on, Nick Running Travel clients get $50 daily towards breakfast, room upgrades if available and $100 in Spa credit to forget about the busy city around you.
You Feel Like a Local
Many of the popular NYC hotel spots are PACKED with tourists, but not here. The Greenwich is located in the Tribeca neighborhood, the most expensive housing market in NYC for 2018. This area is full of cobblestone streets, amazing local restaurants and not a tourist in sight. You are able to explore the sights during the day, but still return to a relaxing neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle in the evening.
The Drawing Room
My favorite part of the hotel was the Drawing Room. The Drawing room is a lounge/bar/restaurant that is for hotel guests only. I hate that at many high end hotels the restaurants and bar areas can become packed with locals or those staying at other places nearby, so this was a great solution. The Drawing even serves hotel guests food from the amazing and hard to get into Italian restaurant next door, Locanda Verde.
Perfect For 2nd or 3rd time NYC Travelers
By now you have seen everything there is to see in Midtown, gone to a play, eaten at the famous Michelin Stared restaurants and are looking for something a little different.Staying at the Greenwich means you can walk to amazing locals restaurants, visit the high line or art galleries in Chelsea or explore West, Greenwich Village and Soho on foot.This is the perfect spot to explore a little deeper into the NYC you already know.
