The Greenwich Hotel offers its guests large, homey rooms, a very attentive service, and breathtaking design. The 88-room TriBeCa hotel, which was opened by Robert de Niro, also offers free mini snacks, a free WiFi and a free Wii video game, which is by request. And to complete the experience for its guests, an underground pool, Shibui spa, a homestyle Italian restaurant, and a premier gym are all available.
The Greenwich Hotel, which got its name from the street, offers guests large rooms and suites that are designed to make them feel what it’s like to live an Italian home. The room has a rustic design with Siberian Oak as floorboards and a French door. Guests can also feel the open air that makes them hear the courtyard that’s quietly buzzing, which gives the feeling of overlooking an Italian piazza.
Aside from Italian rooms, The Greenwich Hotel also provides its guests with generous amenities that complement the room. Books that also include newly released photo and art books fill the shelves of each room. For those who don’t want to read, a free WiFi is available, as well as free PlayStation and Wii consoles to go along with the 42-inch Philips TV for guests to enjoy. To top it off, mini bar snacks are also offered for free, which can go well for guests as they read a book or the free international newspaper that’s delivered to their room daily or when they watch TV that has 40 cable channels, including HBO HD and HDNet Movies.
The Greenwich Hotel doesn’t only offer great rooms with complimentary amenities, it also has an array of features that guests can enjoy. Chief among the feature is the underground pool that’s under a Japanese farmhouse roof that’s made from 250-year-old wood and bamboo. The pool, which is designed by Japanese designer Mikio Shinagawa, is big enough for laps and is lit by a lantern.
The pool is part of the Shibui Spa that offers services and treatments that are Asian-themed. Guests can expect prices to start at $110 for basic facial or massage. Guests who avail of spa treatments can get free access to the pool and the locker room. The Greenwich Hotel also has a large fitness center that has brand new equipment and machine and a personal trainer for $210 per hour.
Guests can enjoy home-style Italian cooking at Locanda Verde, which offers 24-hour room service. The great thing about this restaurant is that it serves good food at a reasonable price. Guests can expect to spend $18 -$25 for the main dish with appetizers and salads being cheaper.
Probably one comment about The Greenwich Hotel is that since their pool and fitness center are located underground, guests won’t have the luxury of enjoying a great view while they swim or workout. Of course, this is just a small inconvenience that guests will experience, especially if compared to all that the hotel is offering.
For people who are looking for a great hotel that provides a lot of free amenities, features and an Italian-like home for their guests, then The Greenwich Hotel is the choice.
