First Look: So Jaded

A new boutique hotel has landed in the Greenwich Village. The 113-room Jade Hotel (52 W. 13th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-375-1300), which opened last week, was designed by architect Gene Kaufman along with design architect Richard Cameron of Brooklyn design firm Atelier & Co. The developer, Will Obeid of Gemini Real Estate Advisors, has paid close attention to period details, as he lives around the block from the hotel and respects the neighborhood’s historic brownstones and townhouses. The lobby offers various cozy seating areas to take a load off. Photo: Wendy Goodman

Andres Escobar & Associates decorated the Art Deco”style guest rooms with an emphasis on the work of twenties furniture designer Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann. This room has a terrace facing north to the Empire State Building and beyond. Since the Village is full of low buildings, the views here are great. Photo: Wendy Goodman

The rooms all have vintage rotary telephones. Remember them? Photo: Wendy Goodman

The bathroom has a generous tub and subway-tiled walls. The bath amenities come from none other than the legendary neighborhood pharmacy, C.O. Bigelow. Photo: Wendy Goodman

The hotel’s unassuming façade is set back from the street and blends into the surrounding buildings with restoration glass and turn-of-the-century architectural details. Photo: Wendy Goodman
