Cheap hotels near Gramercy Park in New York, United States

Gramercy Park is one of just two private, fenced-in squares in New York City, taking up two acres between East 20th and East 21st Street in Manhattan’s East Side.

The park was once a swamp, but is today filled with well pruned flowers and bordered by gorgeous 19th-century townhouses. At the center of the park stands a statue of Edwin Booth (dressed as Hamlet), a renowned Shakespearean actor and one of the neighborhood’s most famous former residents. (And yes, he was also the brother of John Wilkes Booth, President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin.)

Unless you’re a resident, there’s only one way to get into the park these days. Stay at the swanky Gramercy Park Hotel and ask for one of the staff to let you into the park. If this is not possible, you could also simply peer through the gate as you jog past or walk around the perimeter.

Hotels near Gramercy Park: Most of the listings below are located in our Union Square-Gramercy neighborhood. There are also some affordable options in nearby Murray Hill and in the East Village.

Ye Olde Carlton Arms Hotel, New York

Address 160 E. 25th St. (between Lexington and Third Avenues) (Union Square-Gramercy)

A budget hotel in a Gramercy-adjacent neighborhood, Ye Olde Carlton Arms looks pretty inauspicious from the outside.

Hotel 17, New York

Address 225 East 17 Street (Union Square-Gramercy)

There's something just slightly precious about Hotel 17. Could it be the dark warren-like lobby and hallways? The receptionist's uniform? The old-fashioned signage out front?

Thirty Thirty Hotel, New York

Address 30 E. 30th St. (Park and Madison Avenues) (Midtown E-Murray Hill)

Thirty Thirty's 257 rooms have a just-add-water feel to them: Take a prime Midtown East location, add a deluxe reception area with silvery tiles and big globular lamps, and finish off with sparsely decorated, minimalist-oriented rooms.
