Among the ghosts of the literary salons and speakeasies of Greenwich Village is the Jade, a new boutique property on a tree-lined street with an art deco sensibility. Gas lamps and an inconspicuous façade blend the new hotel with the old character of the neighborhood. The exposed-brick, sunken lobby has tufted blue couches and a fireplace for relaxing with one of the New York-themed books that line the shelves. Rooms are distinctly Greenwich Village with their limited
space, but do offer nice touches like a retro-rotary phone and C.O. Bigelow bath products. Some rooms have extras like terraces and separate soaking tubs and stall showers. A barrel-vaulted hallway leads to the Grape & Vine Restaurant, serving market-driven fare against the glow of a fireplace.
