Hotel Riverview Is All Goode (and MacPherson)

Riverview
Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode's acquisition of downtown hotels continues apace! Today's Sun confirms what Hotel Chatter swore was true the other day: The dudes behind the Maritime and Bowery hotels have added Jane Street's Riverview Hotel to their portfolio — their plans for it were approved by the community business board last night. They intend to renovate the building — the former American Seaman's Friend Society Sailors Home, which was occupied by sailors who survived the sinking of the Titanic and now houses Socialista — restoring its original, seafaring look but adding amenities like sunbathing decks for the rooms and bars that Zach Braff will undoubtedly enjoy.

It's been rumored for weeks, and now the Website Hotel Chatter is saying that "a well credentialed tipster" has told them that Bowery Hotel duo Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode have purchased the Riverview Hotel, at 113 Jane Street, for $33 million. The Riverview, ranked 307 out of 338 on Trip Advisor, is in a great location but is in shitty shape; like the Whitehouse, which preceded the Bowery Hotel, it is basically a flophouse. So this is great news for residents of the Far West Village. Just think, now all the impoverished drunks and ne'er-do-wells who hang out there will be replaced by rich drunks and ne'er-do-wells.

Gemma Pulse Check: It's No Waverly

Planning to go to Gemma, the Bowery Hotel’s restaurant tonight? Though we’ve been told by the publicist that, until its grand opening on July 9, the restaurant is open only to guests as well as friends and family of Sean MacPherson, Eric Goode, John DeLucie, and designer Taavo Somer, the hotel’s receptionist must’ve reckoned us a friend, because she invited us to walk right in anytime between 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. For the moment, this is no Waverly Inn, despite the shared players; in fact, as long as you’re wearing shoes and a shirt, you shouldn’t have any trouble scoring a table tonight.
