The Garden Suite is perhaps the most unique of 1871 House's offerings. The suite includes a private 500 square garden terrace, a truly rare-find for affordable New York City accommodations.
A flight up from the lobby, on the parlor floor, guests find perhaps the most unique of 1871 House's offerings- the Garden Room suite. The visitor is immediately transfixed by the massive floor-to-ceiling bow window which takes up most of the Southern wall of the suite, but the real treasure is behind it: the private 500 square foot urban oasis that is the accompanying garden terrace, a truly rare-find for affordable New York City accommodation. The expansive, verdant cedar roof deck plays host to any number of roses, lavender, and other plants, with jardinières and wooden planters framing the deck furniture: a breezy teak bench, three lazy steamer lounge chairs, and a 9' umbrella.
Though some guests will no doubt want to spend much of their time on the terrace, the Garden Room itself makes for no ordinary place to return to for the night or the afternoon rest. Soaring, nearly 12-foot ceilings look down on this quiet room and its carved wood and marble fireplace mantle, tall Normandy armoire, unique four-poster queen bed, and mahogany Philadelphia breakfast table. Another period throwback can be found in the southeast corner: a sculptured ceramic washbasin with wooden cabinet, augmenting the handbasin found in the bathroom.
Please note that the Fireplace is ornamental only.
