Amy over at NewYorkology reported yesterday that the Greenwich Hotel aka the Downtown Hotel by Robert DeNiro has finally got itself a website. And not only that, it's accepting reservations for April during DeNiro's Tribeca Film Festival then from May onward.

Reservations are available only April 1 through 20, and then from May 5 onward. All rooms listed thus far are for $725 a night. (The odd dates may be explained by the fact that the DeNiro-fueled Tribeca Film Festival is scheduled for April 23 to May 4 for 2008.)

$725 a night? Sheesh, Bobby obviously doesn't want any people outside of "his kind" (i.e. Hollywood and film elite) to stay here. And just when we began to think this "overbaked shit cookie" would never open, even more details have emerged.

The MetroTravelGuide.com website says the 75-room, 13-suite hotel will "draw from a broad palette of cultural influences from the Tibetan silk rugs underfoot to the patterns of Moroccan tile that adorn the bathrooms."

Amenities include Dux Siberian beds, oak floors, large soaking tubs, iPod docks, complimentary internet and organic bath products from McBride beauty. The starting room is the 325-sq.ft Courtyard room which opens onto the hotel's inner courtyard. But all standard rooms have 10 foot ceilings with intricate molding detail and oak hardwood floors. The suites, located on the higher floors with the exception of the studios which open onto the courtyard, are roomier and offer views of Greenwich Street and the Hudson River.

On site will be a Shibui Spa with a lantern-lit swimming pool, a lounge area and a 1,000-square-foot fitness center.

As for dining, DeNiro will open a spin-off of his Ago restaurant (pics on Eater) helmed by Chef Agostino Sciandri and serving authentic Tuscan fare. There will also be a guests-only Drawing Room serving drinks and lunch. Additionally, hotel guests can get room service 24 hours a day.

If anyone wants to start donating to the "Help HotelChatter Stay at the Greenwich Hotel", we will take any and all forms of payment. Somehow we don't think this place will have media rates.
