I've stayed at the GPH many times and it is consistently a very professional and friendly place. The rooms and common areas have a regal, classical feel blended with a touch of modern transitionalism.
The location next to the private Gramercy Park and surrounding area gives a respite from the crazed pulse of most of the rest of manhattan. Short walks take you to Madision Square park; an italian food emporium " Eataly" ; and the Flatiron district.
Mialinos , the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel is outstanding!!
Best make advanced reservations as the quality of the service and food in no secret .
The rose bar and adjacent lounge is also a wonderful place to unwind after a long day of exploring Manhattan.
I can't say enough good things about the GPH.
Enjoy!
Bill N.

So pleased to hear about your enjoyment of the property! The Rooms and public spaces, are unique in of itself....truly a fantastic design. The park side location is key.....and what's better then exclusive access to the only private park in New York City! Glad you were able to get over to check out Eatly. Batali does a remarkable job. My favorite is the deer garden on the roof top, spring and summer up there are just great! Looking forward to welcome you back soon.

All the best,

The entire experience at the Gramercy Park Hotel was wonderful. When I first checked in the team was fast, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to speak with. I walked into my beautifully staged room and immediately felt cozy and comfortable. I loved the neat bathroom lights and overall charm of the room. Exquisite toiletries awaited me in the bathroom; Shampoo, Conditioner, body soup, hand soup, and bath salts all of the highest quality and pleasant scents.

Throughout my stay, the hotel staff was beyond courteous. The doorman, Wayne, was helpful and there for any assistance we needed.

I also enjoyed having access to Gramercy Park. I had a few short minutes before needing to run off to a meeting and was able to sneak away for a trip to the park. The tulips were just about to burst (wish I was there for them blooming!), but there were plenty of flowers and flowering trees already in bloom to enjoy.

Overall, my trip to the Granercy Park Hotel was absolutely wonderful! I truly hope I can come back again.

My daughter held her bridal shower last Saturday at the Gramercy Park Hotel Terrace Room on the 18th Floor. The venue was extraordinary: foliage, retractable roof, extraordinary service and attention, good food. While it is pricey, the dedication the staff exemplified is rare to experience. Manhattan has thousands of possible sites for special events, but if you want a lasting memory, save your dollars and book this venue!

Hello Naveen - Thank you so much for your positive feedback, truly appreciated. The color scheme and unique styling's of the property is what our guests love about Gramercy, a special place really. I am sorry to hear you found out room to be a bit cramped. Eluding to your point about the size relating to the city, well that truly is the case. In New York City, space is a hot commodity....here we build up rather than out as you notice fro our skyline! In general, our rooms are actually on the larger side when compared to other properties throughout the city. Should your travels bring you back to New York in the near future, please reach out to me directly so that I may ensure you are well taken care of.

All the best,

Daniel Entenberg

Both being a boutique hotel and not being part of an even upscale hotel chain results in the GPH providing special hospitality and extra touches that make B & Bs so desirable and that corporate-owned properties seem incapable of providing.

These qualities make the GPH the hotel-of-choice for A-to-Z List celebrities, who also enjoy haunting the Rose Bar in the lobby. Learning of Lindsay Lohan and Selena Gomez staying there on separate occasions inspired joking about whether Hillary Duff has ever been a guest.

The GPH experience commences with one of the "nice young men" who are stationed out front warmly greeting you and bringing your luggage to the very welcoming lobby.

The limited outside noises and smells of the upscale neighborhood completely disappear in this space with enough dark wood, stones (including a large fireplace), and dark velvet upholstered furniture to evoke thoughts of a medieval castle. There is also quiet background music and a nice spa-like scent in the air.

The greeting that Joe provided at the well-staffed front desk was so warm that learning that our room was not ready was not at all annoying. Immediately being asked for a cell number to call when the room was ready and having a bellman standing by to store our luggage in the interim further validated this choice of hotel.

This wait paid off with arriving at the indescribably wonderful 750 square-foot Park View Premier Suite, which is twice the size of many New York City apartments.

The nearly sound-proof quality of the suite competed with the elegant furnishings, art from the famous Warhol-centric collection of the GPH, and oodles of extras. A very comfy spa robe/slipper set, a special secondary shower head that came to be known as the "bidet nozzle," and fabled Aesop brand amenities contributed a nice spa-like feel to the space.

Further, the heavy velvet curtains and French doors with thick glass that separated the bedroom and living room areas of the suite allowed watching television without disturbing the nap of my suitemate in the bedroom.

This suite offered the additional benefit of a perfect view of the very serene Gramercy Park itself, use of which is limited to residents of the neighborhood and guests of GPH.

Returning to the room on Saturday night to find turn-down service that included refreshed amenities and a softly burning candle added to the enjoyment of the stay.

This terrific weekend further included a tasty Italian dinner at Maialino in the hotel lobby. The decor was quite nice, but background music and more subtle lighting would have been nice touches.

Our entrees of cod and pasta with pesto were well-prepared and flavorful. Further, we appreciated that our server advised us when ordering that the pasta required a little extra time.

The chocolate croissant bread pudding with hazelnut gelato was slightly disappointing. The bread pudding was less rich than the traditional form of that treat, and the gelato had the almost certainly related flaws of being more creamy and lacking as strong a flavor as true gelato. The fact that the flavor became a little sharper after several minutes suggested as well that it was not being stored at an optimal temperature.

The GPH passed a couple of checkout-related tests the next morning. The clerk politely resolved confusion regarding the bill in our favor, and we learned on contacting the hotel regarding a forgotten personal item that the hotel already mailed it to us.

All of this boils down to the GPH being the perfect choice for NYC visitors who want a conveniently located ideal oasis after enduring the smells, noise, and crowds of that metropolis to enjoy the scads o' well-known and lesser-known treats that more than offset those unpleasant experiences.

This hotel is sexy and romantic with timeless, artistically eclectic detailing that fills the senses. Forget the ultra modern...this is richly plush, with a controlled modernism. Wi-fi...no problem. Room service...delicious! Close to anything. A magical location in NYC with VIP access to Gramercy Park, the only private park in the city...absolutely beautiful. A hospitable staff willing to do anything to make your stay comfortable and effortless. A home away from home.

We had the pleasure to celebrate our marriage 4/25/14 at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Since countless hours of preparing went into making this event possible, I think it would be only most appropriate to take five minutes to write a review about the experience we had at the GPH. "Happy" is an absolute understatement. The entire GPH stuff, from the moment we stepped foot into the hotel until we waved goodby didn't just do what you would expect from a five star hotel. Each and everybody took it on their own to make us feel like a king and queen, always going the extra mile! But there is one person we need to lift above and beyond any praise, and that would be Michelle Condon, the special events manager. Her professionalism, knowledge and work-ethic were the icing on the cake. She was the glue that not only held it all together but most importantly she always was there for us, months in advance, guiding us through the making of a production, only to let it all unfold without the feeling of a production - smooth, magical and exactly what we always had envisioned. We will be carrying the most beautiful memories with us for the rest of our life thanks to the GPH staff and beautiful facilities!
