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
This hotel is gorgeous, clean and the service is top notch. I highly recommend visiting the bar just off the lobby as well! The food is also delicious. Access to Gramercy Park is great highlight, so peaceful and relaxing.
We stayed at the Gramercy Park this week. The ambiance is next level! However I wanted to take a moment to recognize one of your front desk associates; Johnny. He was on duty just a couple of days ago and he was simply amazing. I had a couple of questions that he handled very professionally. He extended our check out time without me asking, great example of anticipating a client’s need. Rare. I would stay at the Gramercy again based on the strength of his ability to exceed my expectations. Great addition to your team!
I was amazed by the sophistication of this hotel, its attentive staff, the design and decoration details, and the comfort of the bed. It's proximity to Gramercy Park is a fantastic bonus and it is centrally located in Manhattan. Can't wait to stay here again!
I have stayed in eight 4-5 star hotels in NYC for the past year and was blown away by Gramercy Park Hotel. The hotel is stunning, the service is impeccable, and the location is perfect. James and Dean were incredibly kind and helpful! Get a room with a soaking tub- incredible experience. Truly the most unique hotel yet. Was actually sad to leave.
Beautiful and stylish hotel in a great location. Comfortable bed, spacious suite, lovely view over the park. I downgraded one star because this hotel is lacking in the kind of thoughtful touches that make a guest feel welcomed and comfortable. Chiefly, no coffee or tea whatsoever in the morning and no coffee maker in the room. Yes you can buy coffee in the restaurant downstairs, but for $750 a night, I really expect an amenity that is standard at most hotels, even cheap ones. Ditto for no water in the room, other than the $10 bottle in the bar, and only two glasses in the suite for three guests. In the bathroom, two tiny hooks on the back of the door holding bathrobes. Not a single hook or towel bar to hold wet bath towels, never mind a hand towel or wash cloth. No clothing rod in the bedroom closet so you can hang your clothes where you dress. And, an empty bracket where the smoke alarm should be, surely a violation of fire code. Sure, these are nit-picky things, but they don't call this the hospitality industry for nothing, and high-end hotels should get it right.
