Address: 2 Lexington Avenue, New York, US
Gramercy Park Hotel was built in 1925 on the site of Edith Wharton’s birthplace, and its opulent interiors live up to the standards of the foundation it was built on. The hotel’s fantastical and meticulous interiors boasts a lobby that practically doubles as an exhibition space for contemporary art heavyweights such as Julian Schnabel, Andy Warhol, and Damien Hirst. This along with the impeccable service available has earned the hotel five stars (as well as the keys to the private Gramercy Park across the street). Take in the view from the tree-lined Gramercy Terrace, or stay indoors and enjoy one of the hotel’s two bars or award-winning trattoria, Maialino.
