Reviewed 18 October 2012

Without doubt this is one of the best places to stay in New York. We stayed here for our honeymoon and the location is excellent. If the retailer Anthropologie did hotels this would be it. What a wonderful place!

The rooms here are spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable. The feather pillows were too soft for our liking and the hotel swapped them immediately for firm foam ones and they were much better. They then made a note so we were sure to have the same for our next visit. Rooms have a complimentary mini bar (alcohol not included) and a snack basket. A fantastic touch and very useful after a long day out and about, especially if you like Hershey's Peanut Butter Cups! The bathrooms are perfect and all the usual touches you would expect. Very large shower, water in all directions. Toiletries excellent. Beautiful handmade soaps.

In our opinion the hotel website doesn't quite do the hotel public areas justice. There is a private sitting room with bar for hotel guests only and here you can order inspired cocktails and delicious food from the adjoining restaurant whilst sat next to the crackling log fire. Free hotel wifi, fast connection. Beyond the private room is a wonderful courtyard garden where you can eat and drink alfresco. There is also a large public sitting area at the front of the hotel. All in all plenty of room to relax after a long day walking in Manhattan. The Robert De Niro art on the walls is a lovely touch. Good actor, hotelier, restaurateur AND artist!

The restaurant connected to the hotel, Locanda Verde (accessed through hotel or separate street entrance) is excellent and serves delicious Italian inspired food and drink. Warning: it gets very busy most of the time and booking a table is recommended. Breakfast here is also very good but as already described you can order from the menu in the private sitting room if you prefer. The hotel also has an excellent room service menu for ordering in your room or downstairs.

The spa in this hotel is truly magical and the swimming pool well worth a visit. The 250 year old structure that surrounds the pool is totally original and an inspired touch.

The service is outstanding, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

Just one criticism: the bathrooms can be a bit noisy in next door rooms. For us it was not a problem as we rose very early due to jet lag. This is a very small problem and all in all the positives made this insignificant to us.

The rooms prices indicate the level of attention to detail and service. You will not be disappointed. Well worth a visit!

Stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon, on our way out of the country. Absolute perfection - from the fabulous staff to the serene pool to the delightful basket of goodies, handwritten note and warm cookies awaiting us in our room. (Ryan Reynolds in the elevator didn't hurt, either.) We plan to come back here every year... And we've already recommended it to friends who were equally pleased.

We enjoyed the location of this hotel, with a very city feeling, yet fresh, sophisticated and upscale. The personel and service at the front desk during check in was very helpful in making dinner reservations and getting tickets for a Broadway show at the last minute on our last night on the East Coast. We liked our room with a bath, large and spacious, and especially the afternoon light in the bedroom. All the extra amenities were a surprise. The bar area was relaxed and comfortable, and a little dark for us. The Italian Restaurant had a stylish design and the food was delicious. The dining area with its bar seemed very popular. We asked for a table away from the bar, which was quieter and we enjoyed looking out the window at the city view. The staff at the entrance were very welcoming and helpful. Enjoyed the boutique size and more intimate feel of the hotel.

Just stayed at Greenwich hotel for a 3 night girls weekend. We arrived early on a Thursday thinking we wouldn't be able to check in but luckily our rooms were ready. The smell of the hotel was heavenly and the 1st thought that came to mind was homey and cozy. The lounge and courtyard were beautiful. I liked our room but it was much smaller than what I expected and the bathroom was crazy small. I booked what I thought was a larger room (superior) but was disappointed. The bed was AMAZING! The towels on the other hand scratchy and stiff. My major complaint actually happened before I even arrived. I was corresponding with front desk regarding restaurant reservations and some room questions. Twice I never even received a response. When I did get to the hotel I had to ask for a breakdown of my reservations. When I arrived at one restaurant I was told that I did not have a reservation. Then I found out that my reservation for the next night was not made either. This was after I was told I was all set. That was the major thorn in my side. The food was delicious as were the drinks. The lounge helped create a very relaxed experience. Would I stay at Greenwich again? Absolutely; but I would be hesitant to trust front desk with important details.

We stayed at the Greenwich Hotel for a 10 night break in NYC early September. This was our first visit to NYC (&USA) so we really wanted an extra special hotel to stay for a 10 night break. The reviews on TripAdvisor really made our minds up to book this hotel as they were so excellent.
The room booked online was a Greenwich Room which we were very pleased with. Immaculate furnishings, nice cookies awaiting on arrival, fabulous bathroom & generally all was great. The room overlooked Greenwich Street & after 2 nights there we were struggling with the lack of sleep due to the dustbin/recycling wagon doing its nightly visit at 3.00am. There was also roadworks situated on the road adjacent to the hotel which commenced at 6.00am.
We asked the reception if they would kindly consider changing our room to a quieter part of the hotel. We were given another room overlooking the Courtyard. This was a much smaller room & was quite dingy & dark due to no daylight getting into the room. No mention of a downgraded room had been made so we quickly returned back to reception to ask if it would be possible to have the same standard of room. The lady on reception was adamant that the new room given to us was indeed still a Greenwich Room. We checked the room descriptions on the Greenwich Hotel website & in no way was this a Greenwich Room, without a doubt it was a Courtyard Room. The dimensions, the furnishings etc, everything was the same as the Courtyard Room described on their website. The reception begged to differ & why on earth would be pay XXXX extra dollars for a room downgrade??? We asked to be returned to our previous room as they had no other rooms available for us. The reception asked if there was anything else they could do for us (?!) & kindly offered to give us earplugs!! (P.S. The earplugs never showed up) – was she taking the mick or what???
The roadworks continued & we are glad to be back home to get some sleep!

Overall the hotel was of a very high standard (after all J-Lo was staying there the same time – I wonder if they offered her earplugs??). The bar/lounge area is very comfortable (but very dark too – bring a torch), the bar service was pretty poor with no questions asked as to whether you would like another drink or if everything was ok. £40 for 2 glasses of wine too.
The biggest let down for us was the reception attitude & general lack of good customer service. After the hassle with the room change we really wished we could have booked somewhere else. The receptionists all seemed more bothered about posing behind the counter than looking after their guests. It felt like if you weren’t an official VIP then they really couldn’t be bothered with you. Such a shame as the location & the hotel in general was great. The spa area was nice but could have done without the life guard sitting in the corner reading his magazine throughout. Really not necessary!

I really must mentioned the guys on the door too – they were really nice & friendly & always ready to give you a smile & a hand with the door along with the luggage & taxi requirements – maybe the receptionist should take some tips from them!

The housekeeping staff were excellent too. I had asked for an extra pillow at reception & it never arrived (what a surprise!). I left a note in the room for the housekeeper to provide the pillow & it was there ready for me when I returned to the room in the evening. Great!

Room Tip: Please ensure you book the room you really want. In my opinion the Greenwich Room was excellent - i...

TheGreenwich, General Manager at Greenwich Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded 20 September 2012

We are delighted that you enjoyed so many aspects of the hotel but regret that you found the overnight street activity too noisy. Our garbage is collected between 7am and 8am and the city workers do not start their day before 7am but, yes, there are road works and we are sorry that you were disturbed by noise.

We are, however, surprised by your insinuation that you were misled by the alternative room offered to you. Every room at The Greenwich is individual in some way - all by its furnishings and some in their layout. Because of this, it is completely understandable if a guest prefers one room over another.

In their efforts to help, the Front Desk staff offered you a room on the Courtyard side which, being away from the street, is certainly quieter. However, I can say absolutely that you were shown a room within the same room type and at the same rate.

Sadly we feel this misunderstanding on your part had a negative impact on your feelings toward the Front Desk staff.

The small and intimate size of this beautifully appointed hotel feels like home. After staying in many hotels in NYC I can call this one home. The rooms are extremely comfortable, a shower with pressure that fills great, wonderful soap amenities, delicious complimentary snacks and treats in the room and stocked mini bar of non-alcoholic beverages, turndown service is well done. The hotel has one if the best spas in Japanese theme in and the pool is a rare find in the City. The breakfast room and courtyard are very cozy and comfortable. This is a place that feels like home and worth every moment.

If you are looking for a discrete hotel that provides top notch service and is in a great location this is the place. The staff is simply fantastic from the doorman to the front desk to the concierge and the cleaning staff. I visit NYC 3 times a year and from know on this is the place I am staying. The rooms was great, clean, quite and spacious. Well done Mr. De Niro and well worth every penny.
