“Perfect gem of a hotel in Greenwich Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Just returned from Manhattan to celebrate our 27th anniversary where we spent five nights at The Jade Hotel which we learned about on TripAdvisor. We had a wonderful stay at this boutique hotel. After checking in, the hotel sent a bottle of champagne to our room! Beautiful decor and, yes, the rooms are on the small side but it's NY! We had read some reviews about the shower design allowing the floor to get wet and the bathroom door being frosted glass and just a bit see-thru. Yes, that's true. However, after many hours of walking everyday the shower was fantastic! We also ate in the restaurant, breakfast and dinner, and each time had fabulous meals. Great little bar area with a good Happy Hour - delicious flatbreads and more! We also loved the location - just a block to the subway and walking distance to so much the area has to offer. Will definitely try to book there again on our next trip. We're hooked!

Room Tip: We asked for a room on a higher floor away from the elevator. They accommodated us - nice and quiet...

Excellent service from the concierge and pure new york style. All what u need for a week end. Ideally located room are a bit small and you can hear the room service outside or the neighbours but clearly one of my top adress in Manhattan.

A little pricy but its worth it. Its walking distance to 5th avenue for shopping, about 10 minutes: JJill, H&M, Gap, Coach, Banana Republic, Anthropology... and more. The hotel is very charming. Rooms are small, bed wasn't very comfy but its still good, don't take me wrong. The shower is one of the best ever had.. Its powerful. Its 2 minutes to a Chiplote on the corner of 6th and W13th were you can have Burritos and beers and watch walkers! There is a little restaurant on W13 walking west towards 5th too, with nicer meals. A/C noisy and its so small you need it on all night otherwise it gets stuffy.

I stayed here for almost two weeks during a renovation of our apartment nearby. CAN I PLEASE MOVE IN?

This place is perfect. It's trendy and comfortable without being obnoxious. From the warm gas lamps drawing you in from the street, to the staff that are so kind and helpful.

The restaurant is pretty good, although strangely empty most the day. The room (1703) wasn't huge, but it had everything we needed: a comfortable bed, desk area, large TV, big closet, a modern bathroom, and the bonus of a killer view of downtown. The wifi situation was slightly annoying (I had to re-sign-in every few hours), but I imagine that wouldn't bother most guests.
The gym is small but sufficient, with all new equipment, so bring your workout clothes!

My only gripe is that there are 100+ rooms but only 2 elevators. Not only are the elevators slow and stop at most every floor, but at one point there was just one elevator. There were a few times when it took 10 minutes just to get out.

Overall, I loved this place and you will too!

Room Tip: 1703 had a great view!

If you are looking for excellence at affordable prices, look no further - The Jade Hotel (Greenwich Village, NY) is what you need. The Hotel is wonderfully furbished, rooms are spacious, comfy and fully equipped, the restaurant offers great food and an interesting crowd. The staff is extremely kind and supportive, and last but not least... the hotel smells delicious: fresh flowers are changed every day and makes you feel home every time you walk in. The borough is the best you can get in NY: walking distance from 5th Ave, Soho, Flatiron and Meatpacking. The block offers more restaurants and shops and opposite the Hotel the Silk SpA is what you need to unwind from a busy day. An excellent experience! Definitely coming back.

Love this place. I had the front desk help me find a lost item and sent back to me to my home! They go above and beyond.
Bedsides that the location is perfect. It's located in such a perfect area where you can easily go anywhere in the city. And the hotel itself is so charming. With it's warm lobby, generous staff, and beautiful rooms. I will definitely be back.

Stayed two nights over Memorial Day weekend in this relaxing hotel on picturesque side street, close to Washington Square, Hi Line and Meatpacking District. Many European visitors and multilingual staff. Tasty brunch in beautifully designed dining room. Room clean and quiet on 5th floor. Criticisms include elevators constantly having breakdowns, so-called Queen-sized bed which seemed definitely double sized and somewhat cool staff. We were told elevator problems were being addressed. Will look for another boutique hotel in Village next trip.
