NileGuide Expert Says:
The hotel's bars alone are worth a visit--in addition to the Rose Bar it also houses the Jade Bar, both designed to the hilt by Julian Schnabel and decked out with works of art by such stars as Warhol, Basquiat, Keith Haring, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst and Schnabel himself.
This 1925-built legend bordering charming Gramercy Park is now famed hotelier Ian Schrager's signature hotel. What once was a 500-plus room hotel now features only 185 rooms; so, where the former version had tiny rooms, now there is space. More than half of the rooms are suites, some with views overlooking Gramercy Park, and all have mahogany English drinking cabinets where the minibar and DVD player are hidden, some variation of the overstuffed lounge chair, and a portrait of Schnabel's friend, the late Andy Warhol. Beds are velvet-upholstered, tables feature leather tops, and photos by world famous photo-journalists adorn the walls. Bathrooms are large and feature wood-paneled walls. If you choose to leave your room, the hotel's magnificent Rose Bar is where you should venture first.
