MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY FACE

BY MICAELA MACAGNONE | Guests arriving at Walker Hotel Greenwich Village are greeted by a facade featuring copper-clad bay windows, cast-stone trim and restoration antique-glass illuminated by gas lanterns reminiscent of the early days of Greenwich Village. The exterior of the hotel, on W. 13th St. between Fifth and Sixth Aves., was inspired by the Georgian-revival towers found on New York’s famed Fifth Ave. of the 1920s.  Inside sits a parlor with a fireplace, Art Deco-inspired wall coverings, a display of original works by emerging local artists, plush couches and a library featuring New York-themed books mostly by authors who called Greenwich Village home.  The luxury boutique hotel’s 113 rooms boast private landscaped patios, balconies with views of the Empire State Building and deep-soaking marble bathtubs.
