The newest hotel near Battery Park City is also one of the best in the city: The Greenwich Hotel. Newly constructed less than two years ago, one would never guess that it is a new building. The architects went to great lengths to give the exterior the look of a hundred-year old building. The interior is made of luxurious imported materials, such as antique wood beams from Japan that line the indoor poolroom.
The Greenwich Hotel is a boutique hotel near the best restaurants of Tribeca, such as Nobu, Tribeca Grill, and the new Italian restaurant in the hotel called Locanda Verde. It has all the amenities of the finest hotels, including one of the best indoor pools in the city, spa treatments, a bar, and a quiet courtyard. Unlike many New York City boutique hotels, the rooms of the Greenwich are not small and do not skimp on the furniture. Rates begin at $475 per night.
General Manager Philip Truelove, formerly of The Mercer Hotel, gave us a nice tour of the Greenwich. For more information, call (212) 941-8900. http://www.thegreenwichhotel.com/
