Manhattan glamour: Take a peek at a celebrity hideaway

The Gramercy Park Hotel endures as a New York City hot spot.

The Gramercy Park Hotel endures as a New York City hot spot.

When boutique hotelier Ian Schraeger reopened The Gramercy Park Hotel in 2006, it quickly emerged as the new hot spot for New York’s rich and glamorous. With a bohemian-inspired design seamlessly blending the old (velvet, wood, antiques) and the new (artworks by Warhol, Basquiat and Haring; celebrities mingling in the Rose Bar), the Gramercy Park Hotel reestablished itself as a New York City institution. (Decades ago, Humphrey Bogart was married here, and the bar was a favorite haunt of Babe Ruth). Today, it continues to draw New York’s notables. Not only is The Rose Bar still popular with a see-and-be-seen crowd  — a party here in April drew the likes of Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Lucy Liu, Penn Badgley and Susan Sarandon — but the new Danny Meyer restaurant Maialino, which opened this year, is currently one of the hottest restaurants and the city (you’ll have to wait weeks for a reservation).

Curious to take a peek behind the velvet curtain? Oyster is currently offering rooms for 20% off, with rates starting as low as $340/night.
