The hotel at a glance
For our New York vacation, we were looking for a hotel with a location perfect both for shopping and visiting NYC. We finally selected the Gramercy Park Hotel, located in the neighborhood connecting Midtown and Downtown Manhattan.
It was very different from other hotels in New York. We were enchanted by the hotel decor designed by artist Julian Schnabel in an artfully revisited bohemian style. His artistic sensuality literally blew us away. We admired the skillful blend of furniture styles and the clever choice of works of art enhanced by a Renaissance color palette inspired by a famous Raphael painting. We unreservedly liked this concept of modern luxury, the beautiful rugs, the heavy red velvet curtains framing the mahogany windows. We were totally mesmerized by the beauty of the place and amazed by the designer’s talent and creativity. But the best was yet to come...
In the morning we took an 'à la carte' breakfast at Maialino, a popular NYC restaurant that is bustling from morning to evening. The star menu item for breakfast is the Cacio e Pepe eggs and Ricotta Pancakes. We also loved to spend time at the Rose Bar and Jade Bar with their most original atmosphere. It is a private lounge and bar where we could sit leisurely surrounded by masterworks of renowned 20-century artists and where we thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere as well as the well-chosen music and chatted with other guests before returning to the tranquility of our room.
We had a chance to sneak up to Gramercy Terrace on the top floor which is rooftop space reserved for special events only, where you can enjoy the panoramic view of the city surrounded by more museum-quality works of art. And we got to take a stroll around Gramercy Park which is the only private park in Manhattan.
Our stay at the Gramercy Park was really fabulous and even better than we had hoped for. I absolutely recommend this original and luxurious hotel, the perfect choice for anyone who hates getting bored.
