The legendary Gramercy Park Hotel has been given the full Ian Schrager treatment since the 2006 relaunch, with about as eclectic interiors as a hotel can get away with and stay the right side of good taste.
The comfortable rooms and suites are big for a city where they can be notoriously tiny, and continue the theme for seemingly random furnishings.
In keeping with a hotel that is also a favoured local haunt there are two bars - the Gramercy Park Bar, which has been a regular haunt of celebs past and present, and the High Bar, which overlooks the park from a rooftop garden, and offers light meals. For more substantial dining, there is the Danny Meyer restaurant.
Why we love it
The hotel overlooks the eponymous green space which is the only private park on Manhattan.
