This famously opulent Manhattan hotel has an extraordinarily Bohemian heritage that has made it a legend. It stands on the site of the townhouse where Edith Wharton was born and generations of artists, writers and musicians have continued to frequent its infamously charming downtown bar. With one-of-akind paintings and sculptures, the Gramercy Park Hotel is more than a prime address but a work of art just steps away from New York’s only private park.
The lobby and public spaces feature a baroque feast of surreal artwork, epic canvases, lush velvet curtains and antique furnishings which together create an operatic virtual reality. This otherworldly, jazzy spirit is carried through into the 185 rooms and suites. Here daring Renaissance color and bold art pieces are juxtaposed with imported hand tufted rugs and mahogany window enclosures and curated photographs.
There’s much else to the Gramercy experience: the candlelit Rose Bar and Jade Bar are two of the most eclectic, energetic and edgy public places in New York City and Maialino is a new Roman-style trattoria from award-winning Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality
