The Gregory Hotel

If you're looking for a comfortable, centrally-located, large (by New York City standards) room to stay in on your next visit to Manhattan, you'll want to check-in to The Gregory. This 131 room hotel in the middle of bustling city feels like an intimate boutique hotel.

The Accommodation

The hotel has a very interesting history dating back to the late 1800's. Renovated and re-branded as The Gregory in 2015, the hotel has a sleek, high-end tailored look and feel to it. Some of the original details, like the tall grecian columns, high ceilings, and marble fireplace in the lobby, have withstood the test of time.

Each of the rooms has a queen or two double beds.

The black and white decor feels sleek and modern.

The windows are noise-proof and have blackout drapes, something you'll be thankful for when staying in Manhattan (especially if you're on a lower floor). The bathrooms are simple with white subway tiling and shower/tub combinations.

The cheeky men's tie door hangers are a nice touch.

Dine

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in the adjoining restaurant, Brendan's Bar and Grill. In the morning, The Liquor Cabinet bar in the main lobby turns into "The Coffee Press" each morning and serves complimentary coffee, juice and pastries to guests.

Do

The hotel bar, called The Liquor Cabinet, is just a few steps away from the hotel lobby. It's a great place to meet a friend or a coworker for a cocktail or glass of wine.

Otherwise, the whole of New York City is at your doorstep. Start with Macy's department store and the Empire State Building only a short walk away.

Perfect For

Couples and singles looking for a centrally located hotel in Manhattan.

Location

The Gregory is located in Herald Square in midtown Manhattan.
