This 1925 icon (Humphrey Bogart and Babe Ruth were fans) got a full makeover in 2006 courtesy of artist Julian Schnabel. The result? A constantly evolving study in excess, mixing a rotating collection of contemporary art pieces — Basquiat, Warhol, Hirst — with Old World intrigue, thanks to Venetian glass chandeliers, a 10-foot hand-carved Italian fireplace, scarlet velvet curtains and Moroccan tilework.
Bed and Bath
Tasseled chairs, nailhead-trimmed velvet headboards and leather tables lend a please-touch magnetism, and dimmed lights cast a sensual glow on the jewel-toned walls, curtains and bedding in the 190 guestrooms. Though standard rooms start at just 220 square feet, they feel indulgent thanks to such details as cut crystal barware and marble bathrooms with luxury products by Aesop.
Though it has mellowed with age, there’s still a definite buzz to the Rose Bar, where celebs and fashion types sip cocktails in the shadow of pieces by Richard Prince, Damien Hirst and Keith Haring (reservations mandatory after 10). Danny Meyer’s trattoria Maialino provides an open, airy counterpoint to the buzzy excess of the rest of the hotel. Locals grab seats at the rustic wood bar for antipasti and bowls of cacio e pepe, or settle into one of the checked tablecloth perches in the back for hearty feasts of oxtail and fritto misto.
How to Get There
Last minute trip, last minute booking. A very quiet and besides beautiful a bit dark of a place. The most stunning piece is the chandelier on the entrance. Cozy room and a nice park next to the hotel which seemed so weird how they take escort you in but you have to literally kill yourself waving at hotel staff to take you back out as it is closed with gates and only they have a key. Front desk staff could improve a bit on the way they treat people, this is not an economy hotel. Has a nice restaurant attached to it and a very small gym.
Huge room for an overnight stay- we could have had a party in here. Long table, lots of seating. Bed was low but comfortable. Super plush and old school NYC glamour.
The tub/shower was not so glamorous- I hate a shower curtain so that should certainly be updated.
We appreciated the anniversary gift and lovely service it was also really cool to check out the park even though it was so cold!
Hosted a great business breakfast in the hotel restaurant this week - food was delicious and service was quick and efficient. Perfect for that purpose. I will come back soon for dinner or lunch as it looked ideal for that too
Loved the hotel and it's staff. The hotel has a rich history in bordering Gramercy Park which arguably is the best spot in NYC. Checked in for my birthday and was upgraded to a 2 room suite. The Front Desk Agent Johnny was professional and super accommodating. Besides the upgrade he sent up a bottle of champagne and comped drinks at the hotels well known bar. Doorman Anthony also played a major role in making our stay wonderful. He helped with any questions and luggage we had . He was extremely personable and a nice representative of the hotel. If your traveling to the City and want to stay in a hotel w/a boutique feel as opposed to a cookie cutter chain , I highly recommend this hotel
What a dream. We booked a junior suite for 2 nights for a staycation birthday celebration. My husband and i are seasoned travelers who know quality, service, and luxury when we see it. The Gramercy Park Hotel did not disappoint. All I can say is wow. Thank you to Johnny at the front desk for the incredible upgrade to the penthouse suite, to James for the wiggle room on checkout time, and to the wonderful men and women of, housekeeping, room-service, concierge and porters, who made this an exceptional few days.
If we are being nit picky, some additions to the room service menu would be ideal. A hotel catering to international travelers should be able to provide simple boiled rice, or sautéed spinach or some other vegetsbles for those guests too in love with their room to ever leave it.
Again many thanks! We had a truly memorable experience that we will cherish forever.
