Gramercy Park Hotel, New York City

3 of 12

When Ian Schrager enlisted friend and artist Julian Schnabel to re-create the
public spaces in the 185-room Gramercy Park Hotel, what he got was a far
departure from the slick, ironic style of his previous properties. Instead,
Schnabel’s vision was personal and textured; the lobby features a rotating
collection of impressive 20th-century art—works by Twombly,
Basquiat, Hirst, and of course, Schnabel’s own—mixed with Moroccan-tiled
floors, hand-carved fireplaces, and a custom Venetian glass chandelier.
