The Gramercy Park Hotel re-opened in August 2006 after a full-year renovation and makeover by legendary boutique hotelier, Ian Schrager, of Morgan’s Hotel and Studio 54 fame. This is his first hotel venture since leaving Morgan’s Hotel Group, so the opening of the new Gramercy Park Hotel is big news in the hotel business, representing a new departure for Ian Schrager.
Here are some more photos and information about the luxury hotel.
Aerospace/Aerospa is a complimentary 24 hour fitness room overlooking Gramercy Park, and a full complement of spa treatments can be booked in one of the treatment rooms within the space or in your guest room.
Gramercy Park Hotel is within easy walking distance of the East Village and the West Village, Union Square, the Lower East Side, Soho, Noho and the hip boutiques and restaurants of Nolita.
INSIDER TIP: Guests of the Gramercy Park Hotel are issued keys to the only private park in Manhattan — the exclusive Gramercy Park across the street from the hotel.
Gramercy Park Hotel represents a sensuous vision of artful diversity — Bohemia reinvented for the 21st century with an original combination of styles, with great pieces of art and furniture and an extraordinary use of color. In the lobby, you will find exhibited 20th century masterpieces by artists Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly, Damien Hirst, Julian Schnabel and Richard Prince.
The bold, individualistic spirit of the public spaces carries into the 185 guest rooms and suites. They are spacious and beautifully appointed. Each is different with its own unique layout, vivid Renaissance color palette and distinctive collection of art and objects. Imported hand-tufted rugs with deep rose velvet drapery create a beautiful palette with the mahogany window enclosures and wooden blinds.
The extraordinary Penthouse is like no other in the city. With all rooms facing Gramercy Park views, this one-of-a-kind setting unites custom plastered lime walls using a 600 year old European technique, a mahogany wood ceiling, an original Stanford White fireplace and mantle and carefully chosen antiques from around the world.
WAKIYA is a fine dining restaurant specializing in modern authentic northern Chinese cooking that is characterized by the unique regional flavors of Shanghai, Szechuan and Beijing. The hotel’s Jade Bar and Rose Bar are two of the most original and exciting public spaces in New York City. These amazing candlelit spaces present atmosphere imbued with the same haute bohemian, eclectic, eccentric and edgy sophistication one would find in an artist’s studio or home.
