Oh, would you look at that: The Greenwich Hotel let a news outlet though its doors that wasn't Vanity Fair! Newsweek this time got to go behind the curtain.

Since we've never seen the place, we can't say whether we agree that the hotel offers a "mix of Mediterranean touches with Asian inspiration" in its public spaces, or that rooms' "French doors, Oriental rugs and fragrant reclaimed wood floors lend a homey feel, while the elaborately tiled bathrooms add an exotic Moroccan aesthetic."

However, the lone review over at TripAdvisor backs up those points, singling out the "beautifully appointed" room and "stunning and luxurious" bathroom as highlights of the visit.

The only place the reviews differ is with the restaurant Ago, which Newsweek says offers an "innovative take on Italian country cuisine," but came across as "barely adequate" to the guest, a stance previously proclaimed by The New York Times food critic Frank Bruni.

That's gotta hurt DeNiro--an Italian restaurant in his hotel in Tribeca is "barely adequate." This might be the only instance where we would ever suggest focusing on the restaurant a little more than the rooms.
