Description

You’ll stay at the landmark Gramercy Park Hotel, located in the heart of the City.

In your room, you’ll be welcomed with unique luxury amenities such as imported Italian linens, exquisite Artwork and luxurious beauty products.

Of an evening, savor Michelin star Portuguese cuisine at Chef George Mendes’s restaurant Aldea. Spanish for the word village, Aldea represents a beautiful balance between country rusticity and elegant refinement.

Sat amid a floating chandelier of cascading lights, expect to be wowed by the culinary theatrics of the kitchen on the Chef’s Table experience, enjoying seasonal dishes born of Iberian tradition, such as the signature ‘arroz de pato’, where duck cracklings, duck confit, chorizo, and black olives all flavor the rice.
