With one-of-a-kind furnishings, paintings and sculptures created by Julian Schnabel, the Gramercy Park Hotel is more than a unique luxury property – it’s a work of art. Set in one of the most coveted areas of Manhattan and bordering on New York City’s only private park, the legendary hotel has, for almost nine decades opened its doors to the world’s most creative spirits.
One of the truly legendary and historic hotels in New York City, designed by Robert T. Lyons and built by the famous developer brothers Bing and Bing, the Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan opened its doors in 1925. It was built on the site of flamboyant architect Stanford White’s home where previously the townhouse that Edith Wharton was born in had stood. The Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan has hosted generations of the sort of visitors who make downtown New York “downtown”.
Each of the Gramercy Park Hotel’s 6 custom NYC luxury hotel suites are entirely unique – expressing the delightful aesthetic anarchy the hotel cultivates – each of our Manhattan hotel suites reflect a singular, personal and confident vision. All 6 custom suites act as luxury private residences with homes-away from-home featuring spacious living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms with custom deep-soaking tubs and showers, powder rooms and multimedia centers with oversized LCD TV screens, each of our NYC luxury hotel suites offer their own distinct design vocabulary reflecting the architecture of the space.
It is said the difference between real life and the movies is that real life has bad lighting and no score. All of that changes as one enters the grounds of Thomas Henkelmann and Homestead Inn in Greenwich, CT. Purchased in 1997 by Theresa and Thomas Henkelmann as a showcase for Thomas Henkelmann’s incredible cuisine, the existing hotel was a logical extension and a blank canvas for Theresa’s design expertise.
Integrating the architecture that defers to the hotel’s history and individuality, the Henkelmann’s purposeful and sensitive renovation is a salute to the past while resolutely embracing the new and the now. Art and artifacts from around the globe are seamlessly woven into each room and suite’s decor. European in flavor, the hotel speaks to both the artist and the bon vivant. Cement tiles designed and colored by French artist Denis Colomb add tactile appeal to the heated bathroom floors. Each bath differs in style and design and all have sumptuous amenities intended to coddle.
The very personal stamp the Henkelmann’s used to create their luxurious retreat is evident with the attention to detail in even the most unlikely places.
