On Tuesday July 21st there was intimate celebration for the grand opening of The Gregory Hotel on 42 West 35th Street.
The new 132-room boutique hotel opened it doors to a select guest list. In the heart of Herald Square, this hotel marks the second partnership between Interstate Hotels & Resorts, hotel Asset Value Enhancement (hotelAVE), and Meadow Partners, the team behind The Renwick, which will open this fall on 118th East 40th Street.
Guests ate savory hors d’oeuvres and sipped tasty cocktails such as the Ginger Bootlegger infused with vodka, canton ginger, Cointreau, and ginger beer. As well as the signature drink, the Gregory – a twist on the classic Manhattan utilizing defiant rye from Catskill distillery. There was a cheese station that included specialties from Murray’s, a Greenwich Village-based gourmet cheese shop. Favorites were Vermont creamery goat cheese and 5 Spoke Creamery Tumbleweed which is a tart and fruity flavor with a brown butter undercurrent.
Guests received a tour of a hotel suite. New York-based design firm Bill Rooney Studio is the force behind the original classic architectural elements juxtaposed against a curated modern aesthetic. The rooms have been reinvented and edited by using a bright contrast of black, white, and grey which provides a fresh environment that highlights vintage architectural elements such as the bay windows, high ceilings, moldings, and entry doors.
Rates at The Gregory start at $379 per night. To learn more, please visit www.thegregoryhotelnewyork.com.
