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
Spent 4 days here in December to see the Lighting of the Tree. The rooms were large and ours had a view of the Gramercy Park, the staff are wonderfully accommodating and the hotel was perfect walking distance to all attractions!
Can't wait to go back again!
My husband and I were astonished by the warmth and personal attention displayed by every member of the Gramercy Park team. In many ways we felt ourselves guests in a private home. The friendliness and professionalism was very much appreciated. The Lexington Premier King is the way to go if it fits your budget, however all the rooms have an unexpected amount of elbow room. One other special touch is access to Gramercy Park, it is peaceful, verdant and exquisite. Looking forward to many more stays at this very special place.
My wife and I had a long weekend at GPH and loved it. It doesn’t even seem like you are in Mew York but you are still a quick walk or cab ride to SoHo or to Central Park. We liked this location as it was less touristy and much more laid back than staying in Midtown. The staff was incredibly friendly and the room was huge and made us want to stay in. Bed, bathroom, room service were all spectacular. We enjoyed the bars and had no trouble getting in. Would definitely stay here again!
