With one-of-a-kind furnishings, paintings and sculptures created by Julian Schnabel, the Gramercy Park Hotel is more than a unique luxury property - it's a work of art. Set in one of the most coveted areas of Manhattan and bordering on New York City's only private park, the legendary hotel has, for almost nine decades opened its doors to the world's most creative spirits. One of the truly legendary and historic hotels in New York City, designed by Robert T. Lyons and built by the famous developer brothers Bing and Bing, the Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan opened its doors in 1925. It was built on the site of flamboyant architect Stanford White's home where previously the townhouse that Edith Wharton was born in had stood. The Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan has hosted generations of the sort of visitors who make downtown New York "downtown". The Gramercy Park historic Hotel in New York City was the headquarters for high bohemia, where artists, adventurers and bonvivants rubbed elbows. Humphrey Bogart was married here. Humorist S.J. Perelman lived here because it reminded him of his native London while being convenient to Third Avenue's great delis. Legendary Yankee Babe Ruth liked to drink at its famous bar, which has retained its bohemian charm over the years, serving as a watering hole to generations of artists, writers and musicians. Each of the Gramercy Park Hotel's 6 custom NYC luxury hotel suites are entirely unique - expressing the delightful aesthetic anarchy the hotel cultivates - each of our Manhattan hotel suites reflect a singular, personal and confident vision. All 6 custom suites act as luxury private residences with homes-away from-home featuring spacious living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms with custom deep-soaking tubs and showers, powder rooms and multimedia centers with oversized LCD TV screens, each of our NYC luxury hotel suites offer their own distinct design vocabulary reflecting the architecture of the space. Furniture and antiques from around the world come together in unison to echo different time periods and photographs curated and taken by artist, Julian Schnabel add to the eclectic mix of aesthetics. When it comes to luxury New York Hotels, the Gramercy Park Hotel pampers guests with one-of-a-kind hotel designs and custom NYC luxury hotel suites. Two of the custom luxury suites are 750 square feet/69.7 square meters and four are 950 square feet/88.3 square meters. Most can be combined with adjacent rooms to expand into lavish 2 bedroom suites, making all perfect personal accommodations as well as special intimate settings for business meetings or social events. The bold, individualistic spirit of the public spaces at the Gramercy Park Hotel is carried on into the 185 guestrooms and luxury suites here in Manhattan. Each NYC accommodation is generously scaled and beautifully appointed. Each is different with its own unique layout, vivid Renaissance color palette inspired by Raphael and distinctive collection of art and objects. Imported hand tufted rugs with deep rose velvet drapery on custom bronze rods create a beautiful palette with the mahogany window enclosures and wooden blinds. Curated photographs and unique pieces of furniture inspired by a myriad of cultures and styles are juxtaposed with original creations by Julian Schnabel and Maarten Baas throughout all of our Manhattan hotel rooms.
