"Still one of the Trendy Hotels in Manhattan"
The location is perfect. The Bar is even after many years still trendy and a good place for people watching. Staff is generally very friendly and helps with tips & bookings. Breakfast is overpriced and the service is rather slow.
"Beautiful Hotel in NYC"
This is my favourite hotel in NYC. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms have nice sized bathtubs. My favourite thing about the Gramercy is the rotating art collection: works by Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol, David Lachapelle, Richard Prince...to name a few. Hotel bar (okay drinks) and restaurant (good food) are nice but the hotel is well located for those who don't want to eat at the hotel/spend a lot of money on food - there is a pizzeria and a diner half a block away. The toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body gel and lotion) are by Aesop, love. If you stay here you can also go across the street to Gramercy Park, which is a private park for residents of the area only. Just go to the concierge and they will escort you to the park and lock the gate. The give you a golden key (adorable) but it doesn't actually open the gate :) You call them when you are ready to leave and someone comes to let you out. Very nice touch.
"Charming hotel with a huge noise problem"
The Gramercy Park Hotel is a loud nightclub that rents rooms to unsuspecting chumps. The hotel is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the service and amenities are great, the place smells like heaven. But none of that makes up for the noise one has to put up with. Here is the issue, the hotel has placed a premium on renting out its space for events and operating a nightclub after the events finish for the night at the expense of their hotel guests. Way past 1:00 AM one has to put up with the loud thump thump of the bass in the bar--and the endless string of taxis picking up and dropping off club guests. Now, no hotel should be responsible for taxis honking all night--except--the excessive taxi activity at the Gramercy is directly related to to the comings and goings at the club. This means a frequency and volume of honking taxis trying to get to and from the curb where they can pick up drunken revelers. The noise can't be blamed on the hotel's location, it's on a short, one-way, rather quiet bit of Lexington that feeds onto the even quieter one-way around Gramercy Park. No, the taxi noise is directly related to how the Gramercy has chosen to operate its business. And let's talk about those revelers as well. They often block the entrance to the hotel making it hard to get inside at night even after you have satisfied the bouncer's request to prove you are a hotel guest. Why he can't also ask the glitterati to step the heck aside, or even just keep the area clear, is beyond me. Our Lexington King was on the low end of the Gramercy's price scale ($429 per night) but does that really mean I haven't paid enough to be able to sleep'
"Do Not Recommend"
When considering booking at a hotel, my two minimum requirements are that the room is clean and quiet. Unfortunately, my recent stay on the fourth floor of the GPH, was hardly quiet. It seemed as though a nightclub was on the other side of my headboard. I was informed the music from the bar below was "leaking" into our room. While we were eventually moved into a quieter room, the fact that there is a room that loud, even past 2 am in the morning, makes this hotel a non-starter for me in the future. While those on duty at night were helpful, the manager in the morning was neither helpful nor empathetic. Unfortunate (and embarrassing) as I had recommended this hotel to my other family members staying with me. If you don't have issues with loud music through the night, I can at least recommend the location of this hotel as it is off the beaten track of tourists and has a very nice coffee shop around the corner - much needed by our crew following our visit!
"I keep going back !"
Is an experience more than a Hotel. It has some years, but still kept very well. All about well mixed design and amazing collection of "museum quality art" The rooms are dark with velvet curtains and delicious linens. Nice Bathrooms and toiletries. It has a great bar on the first floor and a fantastic top bar, that is only for guests on the top floor. The first floor bar can get crowded at night. Peculiar Note: They have the key of Gramercy Park, so you can ask them to open the park for you if you feel like being in a private garden in the middle of the city. is a great treat.
