Greenwich Village is considered one of NYC’s most popular neighborhoods in Manhattan. Mostly known as the Village, this free spirited ‘hood is home to the sophisticated Hotel Hugo for visitors coming to the big city or Gothamites in need of a staycation. This hotel is tucked on the corner of Greenwich and Spring St, away from the bustle that happens in SoHo.
Hugo certainly personifies the contemporary luxury and bohemian chic; the lobby gives off a woodsy vibe, filled with earth tones, rich leathers, soft velvet and polished woods that give a calming effect to Hugo’s guests as they check in or are returning from night out at one of Manhattan’s hottest lounges. Plus the full greenery background behind the front desk only adds to this oasis feel. One of the strongest points of this hotel is the prime location: quiet enough, but still in one of the top nabes of Manhattan. From the hotel rooftop, guests can take in downtown views of the Freedom Tower and the Hudson River.
Once you drop your bags in your room, you can collapse onto the white linen-ed bed and snuggle up to the soft down pillows (or to bae if it’s a romantic getaway). The room is surrounded with polished wood furnishings and rustic artwork. In the center of the suite is the divine bed, that will drift you off to the most comfortable sleep. When you wake up, you don’t even need to phone room service to have them deliver a cup of joe; you room is already equipped with a Keurig coffee maker. So relax, and press snooze on your alarm just another 5 times (max).
Hotel Hugo may be the new kid on the block but it is slowly making its way to the top. The prime location, carefully structured ambience and service makes any stay at Hotel Hugo worthwhile.
TIME OUT TIP: Right around the corner from Hotel Hugo is a sleek Italian restaurant, Giorgione. Started by Dean & Deluca creator, Giorgione specializes in wood-burning pizzas and artfully crafted pasta. With pages of wine to choose from to pair your meal with, a stop at Giorgione is a must during your time in west SoHo.
