Walker Hotel Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village's bohemian find
You might be surprised to find Walker Hotel Greenwich Village nestled among the prewar buildings lining 13th Street. The delicate and artistic Georgian facade of the hotel feels better suited on a cobblestone street in Soho or even Paris. Yet, here this 18-floor edifice stands, offering a beautiful oasis for travelers looking to stay at a boutique hotel with a bohemian flair in Greenwich Village.

From the moment the doorman opens the heavy glass door so you may descend the glowing marbled steps and into the comfortable and intimate lobby, it's like entering another world where the harried streets of Manhattan are left far behind. Pick one of the velvet couches and fall into luxury as an attendant serves you cocktails, food or peace and quiet.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • All of the room choices are named after streets in the neighborhood, and this nod to the area is something you can find throughout the space, from the dry bar goods to the art to turndown service by the local Bee's Knees Baking Company (famous for its decadent cake truffles).
  • When you aren't enjoying your room, work off a sweat in the 24-hour gym, a retro-styled space with wood-paneled walls and floor, a couple treadmills, an elliptical, free weights, a balance ball and a weight machine.
  • Executive chef Christopher Zabita is passionate about supporting local farms and sourcing as locally as possible. He shops at the Union Square Farmer’s Market 4 days per week to obtain the ingredients for the seasonal menu at Society Cafe.
  • Walker Hotel also offers four Greenwich penthouses, which feature north-facing balconies with views of the Empire State Building, and are the only accommodations in the venue that have a bathtub — and a luxurious deep-soaking one at that.
Things to Know
  • In the summer, try to book one of the two Hudson Queen rooms. They have an outdoor patio that’s ideal for taking your morning coffee alfresco or soaking in some afternoon sun.
  • Wi-fi is complimentary, and you can order room service from the restaurant 24 hours a day.
  • Explore downtown Manhattan by walking several blocks to Union Square (and its lauded farmers' market) and the Meatpacking District.
The Rooms
  • Just as the entryway exudes 1920s Parisian charm, so do the rooms. Designed by Andres Escobar & Associates, each space is clean and stylish.
  • Accented with gold, blue or red, each room comes with the same art-deco-inspired furnishings, like a gorgeous dark wood and antiqued glass wardrobe, stunning brown-and-black striped desks made out of Makassar ebony, vintage rotary telephones and lamps and 37-inch televisions that are covered by a decorative sliding door.
  • The bathrooms boast black-and-white-tiled floors, a sizable shower, Frette bathrobes and slippers, and products by C.O. Bigelow, a company that got its start right down the street.
The Restaurants
  • Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily from locally sourced ingredients at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, Society Cafe offers new American cuisine from chef Christopher Zabita.
  • While the highly seasonal menu changes frequently, expect fare like Portuguese octopus with fave beans, Long Island duck with chamomile and cherry jus or a wild game porcini tortellini with wile garlic.
  • Victor Gallardo, mixologist for Society Cafe, masters the classics while creating innovative and original new libations at The Walker Bar.
