The Gramercy Park Hotel is filled with Julian Schnabel’s stunning, hand-crafted furnishings and rare, imported items from far-away markets. From the lobby’s hand-tufted, garnet-and-gold Aubusson rug and the looming saw-tooth chandelier in the Rose Bar to each room’s custom-cut crystal glasses and bronze-studded velvet headboards every detail creates a story – one that is grand, yet intimate.
Guest are allowed access into the tranquil park and to step into a New York City of a quieter, gentler time.
The iconic Royalton has been brilliantly reinvented by Roman and Williams, reinstating its place as the stylish living room of Manhattan, and crossroads for international travelers and the New York elite. Simultaneously sophisticated and complex, this New York midtown boutique hotel features a floor-to-ceiling hand-forged cast bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls reminiscent of Afrian tribal art. Designer Charlotte Macaux brings a unique vision to the classic minimalist charm of Royalton's Guestrooms and suites, retaining Philippe Starck's orginal bold features while accommodating the needs of the 21st century jet-set.
