The Gramercy Park Hotel is filled with Julian Schnabel’s stunning, hand-crafted furnishings and rare, imported items from far-away markets. From the lobby’s hand-tufted, garnet-and-gold Aubusson rug and the looming saw-tooth chandelier in the Rose Bar to each room’s custom-cut crystal glasses and bronze-studded velvet headboards every detail creates a story – one that is grand, yet intimate.
This landmark New York Hotel, located in the heart of the City, has been home to creative minds and distinguished guests for nearly a century. The Hotel is a modern take on a traditional grand New York Hotel, with its custom-designed, handcrafted furnishings and rotating collection of 20th century Artwork, including masterpieces from Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Every room in this New York Hotel features unique Luxury Amenities — imported Italian linens, exquisite Artwork and luxurious beauty products.
Whether dining at Danny Meyer’s acclaimed Italian eatery Maialinoor enjoying specialty Cocktails under the soaring ceilings of the exclusive Rose Bar, Gramercy Park Hotel delivers exceptional guest experiences. And with a Rooftop Terrace providing stunning views and a key to Gramercy Park, Manhattan’s only Private Park, Gramercy Park Hotel guests have access to the very best of New York City.
The Hotel’s 21st century facelift from Oscar-nominated director and artist Julian Schnabel focused on a distinct Renaissance-revival concept incorporating the vivid colors of the era with bold hues on the walls, upholstery and carpets. The furniture was specially imported from markets around the world. The result is an ambiance that is regal, relaxed and ultimately, transporting.
Gramercy Park Hotel offers a rare opportunity to experience Museum-quality Art in an intimate environment. In its lobby, Guest Rooms, Event Spaces and Bars, guests will find masterpieces by artists from Warhol and Basquiat to Damien Hirst, Keith Haring and Richard Prince. The works change regularly ensuring guests never experience the same Hotel twice.
One of the truly historic Hotels in New York, Gramercy Park Hotel opened its doors in 1925. Since then, it has hosted some of the world’s most influential stars: from Humphrey Bogart, Babe Ruth and John F. Kennedy to musicians like the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Madonna and U2, giving it the legendary rock-and-roll edge it maintains today.
The Gramercy Park neighborhood is a quiet, tree-lined area alive with history. Guests are minutes from Union Square, SoHo Shopping and the trendy Boutiques and New York Restaurants of the East Village. For a retreat from the bustle of the city, guests receive exclusive access to Manhattan’s only Private Park, Gramercy Park, which offers a rare opportunity for privacy in the heart of NYC.
The Rose Bar & Jade Bar
Serving as both a hotspot for the city’s most fashionable, talked about events and a low-key escape for A-listers looking for a quiet cocktail, Manhattan’s most prominent tastemakers flock to the exclusive Rose Bar. It is home to Fashion Week after parties, celebrity book launches and on any given night, world-renowned DJs spinning their custom playlists.
In addition, the lounge’s intimate music showcases, known as the Rose Bar Sessions, offer guests exclusive performances from artists like Axl Rose, Dave Navarro, Rufus Wainwright and Liza Minnelli.
This grand space with soaring ceilings is like none other in the city. It features custom furniture from Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel, a one-of-a-kind Maarten Bass billiards table and a rotating display of bold artwork from 20th century masters like
Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Richard Prince and Damien Hirst. But the space also maintains a sense of intimacy and warmth from its solid walnut bar, a 25-foot-long tufted banquette of silk velvet, a hand-carved limestone fireplace and Douglas fir columns.
In the small alcove just off the Rose Bar, the chic Jade Bar provides a welcoming space all its own. With views of residential Lexington Avenue, velvet-upholstered seating areas, verdant walls and, like the adjacent Rose Bar, stunning works of modern art, the Jade Bar offers a calming, intimate spot for guests to enjoy coffee and breakfast at the start of their day. Later in the afternoon, both bars begin serving exotic cocktails, classic aperitifs and dishes from Maialino’s Executive Chef, Nick Anderer.
