Times Square, NYC

 

Proudly standing between Franklin and North Moore Streets, the quaint Greenwich Hotel makes itself distinctive from the rest of the Big Apple accommodations by ensuring that its contemporary amenities perfectly blend with its exceptional interiors. From the Italian Carrara marble that tile your bathroom floor to the Swedish Duxiana beds where you lay your tired body in, it’s apparent how every bit of this hotel is a pleasant surprise to its guests.
 
Learn more about this NYC hotel in a review provided by the prominent travel site, Frommers.
 

Built from the ground up, the Greenwich Hotel, like the Bowery Hotel, is a combination of modern meets rustic in design. The building was crafted with handmade bricks, reclaimed wood, and furniture from antique stores and flea markets throughout the world. The uniqueness does not automatically make a great hotel. First and foremost for are comfort and service, and the Greenwich provides both. The rooms are airy and quiet; some have Hudson River views. The hotel has a Japanese-inspired spa, including a pool surrounded by a 250-year-old Japanese farmhouse assembled without using a single nail. You might find the location a bit too far away from the heart of the city, but maybe in this case, that's the point.
 

So get started with your next travel to NYC as early as now!
