I stayed at the GPH for one night during the Christmas break and enjoyed the hotel very much.
The design and decor of the hotel is magnificent and special. It is not sanitary or predictable, as is the case with a Ritz Carlton or a Four Seasons. We had a loft room on the penthouse floor which had a great view of Gramercy Park. The room itself encompasses the history of the building. While the corridors were dungeon dark, the room itself was bright. The staff is amicable, although they don't trip over themselves trying to serve you. Beds, linens, toiletries and towels are all top notch. The Rose Bar is nice but the hotel tries to keep an appearance that its an exclusive bar which only allows a select few. This was not the case, as the crowd that was inside the Bar was mostly a mix of middle America tourists and mostly friends of staff members.
Cons were: (i) valet parking which is $65, even though the hotel's website lists it as $50; (ii) wifi is $15 a day (this is unacceptable for a luxury hotel. When you're paying top dollar for a room, wifi should be free); (iii) the corridors are very dark.
The biggest plus is of course Gramercy Park and the neighborhood which is relaxed yet sophisticated.
