The Gramercy Park Hotel has unveiled the new Park Room and Board Room, two spaces that can be reserved together or separately for meeting and events overlooking Gramercy Park. Designed in a blend of Spanish style, Belle Epoque extravagance and Bohemian elegance, the two-room suite overlooks the only private park in Manhattan, a unique proximity that has drawn guests to the boutique address on Lexington Avenue for nearly a century.
New York-based architect William T. Georgis and interior design associate Tina Glavan were inspired by Julian Schnabel's striking design of the hotel lobby, Rose Bar and Jade Bar. Similar to every public space throughout the Gramercy Park Hotel, the new function spaces are dotted works of art, with pieces curated by Aby Rosen and Kate McGrath including CAFÉ (1973) by Urs Fischer and Duralast Tower (2008) by sculptor Tom Sachs.
Located on the hotel's second floor before south-facing views of Gramercy Park, the Board Room runs 490 square feet with space for up to 20 people conference style, while the Park Room measures 616 square feet with room for 30 conference style, 48 classroom style and 60 theater style. The spaces can further include an adjacent Foyer (406 square feet). Both spaces are arrayed with custom furnishings throughout. Each space is also fully outfitted with contemporary audio-visual technologies, including 80-inch LED television, Apple TV, Skype camera, DVD/Blue Ray player, and surround-sound Russ audio system with DJ inputs.
As with all meeting groups at the Gramercy Park Hotel, guests can work with the hotel's experienced Events Team to coordinate custom dining and catering menus with Danny Meyer-owned Union Square Hospitality Group.
Guest room rates at the Gramercy Park Hotel begin at $450. For more information or to reserve space for a meeting or event at Gramercy Park Hotel, please call 866.784.1300 or visit www.gramercyparkhotel.com
