The Jade Hotel is a new small boutique hotel in Greenwich Village and is the perfect place for those who want to want to immerse themselves in all that the Village has to offer. Affixed with Art Deco flair, the Jade Hotel takes you back to the Roaring Twenties with its brushed steel lamps, black rotary phone, geometric wall patterns, leather club chair, dark accents and Tivoli radio: You can almost feel Jay Gatsby press you on the shoulder, hand you a Gin Rickey, and ask you how you are doing old sport. The rooms are compact, ideal for a long weekend; C.O. Bigelow products - from the famed apothecary nearby - line the bathroom's shelves. The Jade prides itself on the small details and we all know what can be hidden and found in such details.
The Jade is the ideal launching point for the Village. Cafes, everything-Momofuku, bookstores, coffee joints, bistros, pre-restoration brownstones (with stoops that beg to be sat at with latte in hand), boutiques are just a few New York minutes away. There is also a chic bar and the Grape and Vine restaurant in the lobby and right next door respectively. But there were some nights I was happy just to retire to the room, turn on 88.3 WBGO - the jazz station, imbibe an adult beverage, slide into that leather chair, and read a dusty two-volume out-of-print hardcover collection of short stories I found right up the street at the Strand.
