New York hotel The Jade opens in Greenwich Village in the US

A STYLISH new hotel has opened in New York's historic Greenwich Village neighbourhood in the US.

The Jade has 113 Art Deco-inspired guest rooms and suites decorated in crimson, blue and gold colours and has been custom-furnished with ebony and textured hardwood furniture.

It has a speakeasy-style Grape and Vine restaurant operated by Manhattan restaurateur Frederick Lesort, which has a fireplace and serves classic American dishes with a French influence made from local market-driven ingredients. The bistro derives its name from the mid-19th century bar, Grapevine Tavern, believed to be the place where the phrase "I heard it through the grapevine" originated. The 18-floor hotel has gas lamps at the entrance, a sunken lobby with a fireplace, a library alcove with New York-themed books, a gym and Wi-Fi.

Prices start at $US269 ($A290) a room per night in the low season and $US599 in the high season.
