About Gramercy Park Hotel
Original, romantic, surprising, poetic, and whimsical: Gramercy Park Hotel embraces its Haute Bohemian heritage by reinventing it for the 21st century and offering guests the chance to step into a work of art. The hotel is an original combination of styles, a study in careful contradictions that juxtaposes great pieces of furniture, rich textures, artwork by renowned contemporary masters, and the extraordinary use of color to evoke an emotional response from all who visit. Each of its 185 guest rooms and suites are uniquely designed in this fashion and feature original creations by Julian Schnabel and Maarten Baas, among others. The Rose Bar and Jade Bar each offer classic aperitifs, fanciful drinks and modern classics that hearken back to the golden age of the cocktail hour and are complemented by light dining menus, while Gramercy Terrace is an oasis 18 stories above the city streets that combines the charm of London's private gentlemen's clubs and the Bohemian bustle of Viennese coffee houses. The award-winning, Roman-style trattoria, Maialino, completes the hotel’s F & B offerings.
