New Yorkers held their collective breath when hotelier Ian Schrager announced he was revamping the Gramercy Park ­Hotel, a 1924 gem that had hosted everyone from Humphrey Bogart to David Bowie. They needn’t have worried: The redesigned lobby, unveiled in 2006, retains the boho spirit, with red banquettes, a working fireplace and an enormous Venetian chandelier designed by Julian Schnabel. The hotel's blue-chip art collection includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Richard Prince and Damien Hirst. The eclectic elegance continues in the spacious rooms, with a jewel-toned color palette, tapestry-covered chairs, hand-tufted rugs, mahogany drinks cabinets and iPads. Have brunch on the 18th-floor Gramercy Terrace, which features a retractable roof, or sip cocktails at the Schnabel-designed Rose and Jade bars. Danny Meyer’s trattoria, Maialino, recently bumped up the attractions. Rooms: 192.
