The Jade Hotel – A Greenwich Village Gem

The Jade Hotel – A Greenwich Village Gem

The charm of Greenwich Village, one of New York City’s most famed neighborhoods, comes alive in an architectural gem of a hotel – The Jade Hotel.
With meticulous period architecture and sumptuous Art Deco interiors, The Jade conjures the Greenwich Village of speakeasies and literary salons, the exhilarating Village of artists and musicians – and the electrifying crossroads of fashion, food, and culture that the Village is today.
Craftsmanship and beauty are reflected everywhere at The Jade.  The 113-room hotel was created with extraordinary attention to detail by New York architect Gene Kaufman.  Design Architect Richard Cameron of Brooklyn firm Atelier & Co., renowned for his grasp of classical architecture, designed and consulted on certain elements of the hotel’s façade.  Developer Will Obeid took classes at Manhattan’s Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, and pursued the best designers and craftsman necessary to bring this hotel to life, from its modern comforts to its authentic design.
Elegance in Design
The elegant Georgian-style architecture of the lower façade is illuminated by lamps blazing at The Jade’s entrance, restoration glass, a large semi-circular “lunette” window, and a huge copper clad bay window.  These welcoming elements create a feeling of inspired nostalgia for guests as they enter the vestibule and descend into a sunken lobby that is enhanced by a fireplace, Art-Deco inspired wall-coverings, and a display of original works by emerging artists.
In a library cove off the lobby, Jade guests find plush seating and classic New York-themed books, including early editions by authors from those who call, or have called, Greenwich Village home.
“The Jade is infused with the same pride of craftsmanship that gave old New York its character,” Obeid said. “We were driven to create a hotel that provides an experience that is quintessential Greenwich Village. This is a place where guests and neighbors gather to share stories, adventures, and encounters.”
Impeccable amenities
The hotel’s gracious façade will complement today’s technological comforts and amenities, including fiber-optic Wi-Fi throughout, fully equipped fitness room, and energy-efficient and low-noise central air.
Staff uniforms are custom-designed for The Jade by Against Nature, the Lower East Side “bespoke atelier.”  A grey waistcoat with purple piping, traditional but very modern, is the uniform’s signature.
Grape & Vine Restaurant
Manhattan restaurateur Frederick Lesort operates Grape & Vine, The Jade’s day-to-night restaurant and bar.  The speakeasy-inspired eatery welcomes neighbors and guests with an artisanal-style menu, signature custom cocktails, and healthful juice options.  Lesort is joined by his business partner, Youri Raffi Djorkaeff, a World Cup-winning soccer star who now lives in New York City.
Jade Guestrooms, Inspired by Legendary Deco Artisan Ruhlmann, Accentuate the Details
For The Jade’s Art Deco-inspired guestrooms, interior design consultants Andres Escobar & Associates took inspiration from legendary 1920s French Deco furniture artisan Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann.  Rich shades of crimson, blue, and gold are dominant tones.  Bedframes and desks are made of Makassar ebony, the luxurious textured hardwood; sensuous curves accent furnishings.  A sliding cabinet, inset with a gorgeous Art Deco pattern, conceals a 37” flat-screen TV.  A compact Tivoli audio unit next to each bed features a docking cord for mobile devices.  On every bedside table is a functioning vintage rotary telephone.  Bathrooms have textured black-and-white “subway” tiles, and feature European-style dual-flush toilets.  Indulgent bath amenities come from C.O. Bigelow.
Most rooms offer unobstructed views north and south, with breathtaking vistas of New York from lower Manhattan’s architectural treasures to the iconic Jefferson Market Library nearby.  The higher floors offer select rooms with a terrace, allowing guests to gaze over the cityscape.  For guests who prefer private outdoor space, second-floor guestrooms feature individual garden terraces separated by a landscaped trellis.
