I have stayed at the GPH plenty of times to tell you that this is a five star hotel. Reading some of the other reviews, either some of them are just blown out of porportion, or it's just other hotels trying to slay the greatness that this hotel possesses. The room service is great and the staff are always there to help. One of the times we stayed here was during a blackout. We called the gramercy first out of all the hotels and they said yeah no problem we've got power water and everything you need. Phenomenal hotel and a great time

I have always loved this hotel -- in good times and bad, pre-renovation and post. It is the best location in the city for an out of towner with a packed agenda and in its current iteration is cozy, comfortable and very cool. A great place for a winter visit. Fireplaces and rich, dark colors.
The real mark of a great hotel in my book, however, is how well the staff manages when things don't go well. We spent a few days there over the New Year's Weekend and had a few bumps. There was an electronic glitch that made the door locks malfunction briefly and some room service confusion -- actually quite minor in the scheme of things. The hotel staff could not have been kinder or more efficient in cleaning up problems and at check-out they had preemptively comped a number of items on our bill. This was followed by a letter from the General Manager to explain again and apologize for the inconvenience. This is the kind of gesture that inspires loyalty. Things happen in the best of hotels but the response really is what makes the difference and keeps customers coming back. These are prices one would expect in a top tier Manhattan hotel but I think the value is quite high. I absolutely recommend it and can't think of anywhere I would rather stay in NY right now.

A friend and I spent a weekend in NYC and had a great experience at The Gramercy Park Hotel. The location is one of the best in the city with great shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The decor at the GPH is warm and inviting. The staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast at the Terrace reminds me of the small cafes in the South of France. RCS

Our recent stay at Gramercy Park Hotel was a mixed bag.

The highlight is that one of the best restaurants in NYC happens to be there, Maialino another Danny Meyer treasure :-)

The location is also great and so close to a super part of the city and some of the best restaurants. I wish however that the hotel itself lived up to the promise. The service while ok in general is a little lacking with some details not up to snuff.

- Our paper was never delivered in 4 days
- The coffee service in the lobby which is supposed to be ready at 7AM was still nowhere to be found at 7:40, which is a little frustrating when seeking the caffeine fix

Those however are minor annoyances compared to some of the larger issues:

- The rooms, at least the one we had was to put it mildly functionally obsolete. Even though we had a suite the layout was peculiar at best. The bathroom was quite funky with doors that blocked access to the shower, and a sink in the hallway to the bedroom which was almost impossible to use as it totally blocked access. The room also had the tired look and feel of staying at your grandmothers house that had not been touched or updated for 50 years. Not kitschy, just tired.

- One of the biggest issues we had was the smell of smoke from the fireplace that totally permitted the lobby, not in a good way but rather in an overpowering and offensive way. It sort of smelled like there had been a destructive fire that was never totally cleaned up

Overall - Probably not our first choice in the future which is to bad because for us it is in the perfect location.

Of course we will come by every time we are in the city for one of the best restaurant experiences available anywhere!

Elizabeth M, General Manager at Gramercy Park Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded 23 March 2012

Dear FFCW,
Thank you for your review. We agree that Danny Meyer’s Maialino is one of the very best restaurants in New York.
We are very sorry that we missed on some of the details like delivering your newspaper and setting up coffee late. These oversights are very unusual for our establishment, and unacceptable.
We are also sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the layout of our Avenue Suite. This particular room type does feature a unique layout that many guests are very fond of. However, our other room categories feature more traditional floorplans.
We are very sorry that our service fell short of exemplary. We hope you will be so kind as to give us another chance. Thank you for your feedback.
Sincerely,
Elizabeth Mao
General Manager
