The Gramercy Park Hotel
2 Lexington Ave., Gramercy Park
Not only is this opulent and over-the-top hotel decked out with pieces from Basquiat, Warhol, and Botero, but it’s also adjacent to the magical Gramercy Park, which is only accessible—via key—to residents of the neighborhood (and, as luck would have it, guests of the hotel). The Baroque vibe is theatrical and fun, and there’s an on-site Italian restaurant (and bakery) from Danny Meyer that makes room service a treat.
The Inn at Irving Place
56 Irving Pl., Gramercy
This quaint spots looks like just another family brownstone on a lovely street. As the kind of place you could easily move into, it's no surprise that this 12-room hotel does have residences available for longer stays. You’ll sleep in Frette linens and take strolls around Gramercy Park. The Inn has the sweetest tea room in town, too, called Lady Mendl’s.
