I recently stayed at the Gramercy Park Hotel for a business trip and was very pleased. The decor of the rooms is a contemporary version of something vintage or historic complete with velvet headboard and chairs, bead board paneling in the bathroom, vintage inspired light fixtures, and original details to the building including wood floors, architectural molding, tiled floor in the bathroom and a marble threshhold. A decadent mini bar was beautiful with a mirrored interior and cut crystal glasses and ice bucket.
The staff was pleasant although I didn't have much interaction with them except for the hostess at the Terrace Restaurant who was always very kind and cheerful every morning I sleepily went up to get coffee (the coffee is actually much better a couple of blocks away at 71 Irving Place Coffee).
Every night I would come back from work and the lights would be dimmed with a really pretty little candle on the side table. Very cosy! I was lucky to have been there when the weather was decent and was able to open my window to the sound of crickets in the morning and the cicadas at night.
One of the perks of this hotel is access to Gramercy Park. What an unexpected treat! I went one morning for an hour or so and thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and landscaping of such an exclusive place.
This is a great place to stay if you want to feel a little like you went back in time or traveled to a totally different place. It is an elegant, quiet, but small room in the middle of a busy neighborhood. There is much to see and do within walking distance and has a fantastic restaurant, Maialino's on the ground floor. I think that the breakfast in the Terrace Restaurant is somewhat disappointing and I would actually recommend going to Irving Place coffee just a couple of blocks away.
One last thing to mention is the luxurious toiletries that they provide. Fragrant, unique and high end samples of some recognizable brands such as Le Labo are a particularly fun way to experience something new.
