The Gramercy Park Hotel’s Haute Bohemian heritage has been honored and renewed in the transformation by Ian Schrager. It is still the Gramercy Park Hotel but better! It represents a sensuous vision of artful diversity. Bohemia reinvented for the 21st century with an original combination of styles, with great pieces of furniture and art and the extraordinary use of color. It is a balancing act which only Ian Schrager could pull off, as well as a fresh approach which represents a new departure for him. It brings together a number of creative forces, not chosen for their compatibility, but for their shared commitment to the modern lifestyle.
The Hotel counts with an Art Collection with masterpieces of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Enoc Perez, Keith Haring, Tom Wesselman and Damien Hirst, among others.
“It is possible Ian Schrager has done more to bring Design to the travel experience than any other living person-single-handedly, reinventing the Hotel as a site of electrifying cultural significance” TRAVEL+LEISURE
