Take A Walk Into Classic New York City At Walker Hotel
Walker Hotel has one goal: to give you an authentic New York City experience...
Once you arrive, you’ll understand what we mean. Enter via the marble staircase and you’ll step into a parlour-style lobby that’s loaded with art-deco details and opulent interiors the Greenwich Village hotel has become known for. Taking its inspiration from the city, spend a few days at the 13th street address and you’ll want to do just that; explore the city that offers so much inspiration.
And there’s SO much to explore. With the hotel situated in the heart of The Village, you’re within walking distance of some of our favourite areas: the Meatpacking District, West Village, Union Square and Chelsea. Head west and stock up on fresh produce and snacks from Chelsea Market, before strolling along the High Line, a park built on old train tracks above the city.
Once you’re tuckered out, make your way back to the hotel where you’ll find 113 rooms infused with 1920’s Parisian charm. Clean and stylish, the spaces are designed with dark wood, geometric wallpaper and vintage telephones and lamps. The bathrooms feature walls covered by black and white subway tiles, and are stocked with products made by the original men’s grooming store: CO Bigelow Apothecary. The oldest operating apothecary in the city, CO Bigelow has treated everyone from Thomas Edison to Mark Twain. Cool, huh?
Post groom, make your way down to Society Café, The Walker’s locally-driven restaurant and bar. Led by Executive Chef, Christopher Zabita, the menu offers American-style dishes all made from locally sourced produce from small farms and the Union Square Farmer’s Market, and is the perfect place to fuel up before you head out for a night in The Village.
Spend some time at Walker Hotel and you may never want to go home. After all, it was John Lennon who said:
“I regret profoundly that I was not an American and not born in Greenwich Village…”
