If you choose to leave your room, the hotel's magnificent Rose Bar is where you should venture first, followed by the Danny Meyer-run restaurant, Maialino.
Concierge
"This 1925 landmark, whose bohemian sumptuousness had frayed in recent years, has been reanimated by hotelier Ian Schrager, who... buffed the old-school grandeur to a sheen."
Fodor's
"The lobby has a chic, hushed quality but upstairs, rooms go for fabulousness over comfort, with draped velvet, studded leather, and very red drapes." Full review

Try for a view overlooking Gramercy Park if you can swing it; staffers will also let you in the gated private park on request.
