For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Gramercy Park Hotel, New York


12 of 16

No matter how many times you return to Ian Schrager’s fabulous ode to New York, chances are you won’t experience the same hotel. The art collection here is legendary – Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Fernando Botero, Enoc Perez – and, best of all, constantly changing. The general mood is bold, contemporary and American, with a penchant for oversized images and brash colours. The interior design is the work of painter and Oscar-nominated director, Julian Schnabel, whose handmade furniture from across the decades, Aubusson rug and statement bronze concierge desk makes an interesting complement to the fluid art display.
