Rough Guide
"Rooms are... eclectic, bold and luxurious. It’s also in a lovely location."
Michelin Guide
"It's tough to improve on a legend, but the Gramercy Park Hotel has done it."
Frommer's
"More than half of the rooms are suites at this 1925-built legend, some with views overlooking Gramercy Park." Full review

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.

Michelin Guide
"Perfectly sited on Madison Avenue and surrounded by leading boutiques and galleries, this hotel is equal parts exclusive hideaway and world-class hotel."
Frommer's
"This 34-story grande dame towers over Madison Avenue, perfectly epitomizing the old-world, moneyed neighborhood where it stands." Full review
Concierge
"The most pedigreed of the Upper East Side hotels, this grande dame opened originally as a residential hotel in 1930, with composer Richard Rodgers as its first occupant."
Fodor's
"The Carlyle's fusion of venerable elegance and Manhattan swank calls for the aplomb of entering a Chanel boutique: walk in chin-high, wallet out, and ready to be impressed." Full review
Insight Guides
"The great bastion of Old New York caters to royals, politicians, and other elites, housing them in refined Art Deco-inspired guestrooms and pampering them with attentive service."
