We recently stayed at the GPH for 10 days where we also had our daughter's wedding. The hotel is exceptional. Located in a quiet upmarket residential square around the private Gramercy Park, ( the hotel has a key to this lovely park for guest use), the hotel exudes opulence and funk...it is littered with rock stars, models and the like..in fact we were waiting for Miranda Kerr to finish a magazine interview so the hotel could complete the set-up for the wedding! The walls are covered in original art works including original Andy Warhols and rock star photography from the famous Rosé Bar in the hotel. It is a total New York experience, with exceptional service and without pretention. David the concierge is incredible, warm, welcoming, efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel restaurant is excellent and serves great coffee along with an extensive Italian menu. The Rose Bar has a great atmosphere in the evenings but make sure you have your name on the door with the concierge as it seems to fill up every night of the week...we saw some fantastic jazz in the bar's laid back and very cool atmosphere. We booked Loft rooms which face onto Lexington Avenue, but were upgraded to Premier Loft rooms which were larger, brighter and had a slight view onto the park. Ask for a higher level room somewhere between 7th and 14th floors to avoid any noise from the bar or the rooftop restaurant. The front rooms have full park views and are also lovely. If you are planning a wedding Michelle Condon, the hotel's Functions Manager, managed the wedding for us and was unbelievable. It was easier to organise a wedding in New York than in our home town in Australia thanks to Michelle..she is just exceptional in terms of service, efficiency, can do approach, and a thoroughly lovely person.
GPH is a great NYC experience, the views straight to the Chrysler Building every time you walk in the front door keep reminding you of this. Yes it's expensive, but hey if there is one place to hang the expense it's wonderful NYC, and Gramercy Park Hotel is the perfect base for it.
