I liked the Jade a lot. I stayed here in a Grove Queen room for 6 nights in late June. This is a boutique hotel. The rooms are small but smartly designed and decorated with custom wall paper and lacquered mahogany furniture. Super comfortable bed; very effective air conditioning; and excellent water pressure in the shower. Very quiet. I could not hear other guests or street noise. Nightly turn-down service.
The Jade looks and feels warm and intimate throughout. It comes across almost like a private club in Paris or London. It does not feel like a New York hotel, and that’s a good thing. The lobby is small and while you can have drinks there, it is not a “scene”. This is not a typical tourist hotel and probably wouldn’t be good for someone on business travel or for folks traveling with small children.
Great location at the top of Greenwich Village between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Very easy walk to Union Square, Gramercy Park, Flatiron, West Village, NYU, Chelsea, and Soho. Easy access to major subway lines going north and south to Times Square, east side Museums, Lincoln Center, Tribeca, and Lower Manhatan.
Plenty of nifty, relatively inexpensive (for New York) restaurants, cafes, and interesting shops frequented by area residents (as opposed to visitors) on surrounding blocks. Try O Cafe on Sixth Avenue and 12th Street; Sotto 13 on 13th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues; and French Roast on Sixth Avenue and 11th Street (open 24 hours). Great take-away gourmet eats perfect for room snacks or a picnic basket at Citarella’s (Sixth Avenue at 9th Street).
Finally, a word about the staff and service: magnificent.
Special mention to Matt and Kyle at the front desk but everyone (remember, I was there for a week so I believe I met everyone…) was friendly, engaged, pro-active, solution-focused, and gracious. They all seemed genuinely glad to be working at the Jade and that makes for happy, return guests.
