Fodor's Review

Ian Schrager, boutique hotelier extraordinaire, decorated this property with contemporary art by the likes of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The lobby has a chic, hushed quality but upstairs, rooms go for fabulousness over comfort, with draped velvet, studded leather, and very red drapes. Try for a view overlooking Gramercy Park if you can swing it; staffers will also let you in the gated private park on request. Maialino, Danny Meyer's Roman trattoria, has been

a hit since day one; use your hotel connections to snag a reservation. The rooftop garden, renamed Gramercy Terrace, has a retractable roof 17 stories above the city. The Rose Bar remains exclusive, with access only if you're a guest or if you've made a reservation.

Not Worth The $$ for this Tiny Room

I believe that when you pay $800/night you should get great value, which this hotel failed to deliver. We were upgraded on arrival from a deluxe loft ($800/nt) to a corner 1 bdrm (normally $1200/nt), had we been paying $1200 for the room we got we would have left. The rooms are tiny and dark. I understand that the darkness is part of the whole feel of the place and I'm sure there are many people who would think it was cool, but for us it didn't hit

the right note. The bathroom is so small that the sink cannot fit inside it and is in the room instead. For another 100-200/nt you can get a whopping 700 sq ft at trump intl (where we usually stay) or about 600 sq ft at tribeca grand (another favorite). While the hotel has a nice, funky vibe it struck me as trying a little too hard: the hallways were so dark it was absurd. Service was mostly good but spotty at times. The private rooftop bar is fantastic and the best part of the hotel. The gym is nice though a little small. The bathroom amenities were very nice and unique.
