The Inn’s address indicates its location. Its name its not even posted on the townhouse. The location is great being in the heart of New York’s historical Gramercy Park. The townhouses are originally built in 1834 as three single family brownstones. Over the years, the corner brownstone was torn down and a small apartment building was built in its place. The two remaining brownstones have stood the test of time, and they now create The Inn. While once combined as a single family home, the brownstones also housed everything from apartments, The Ingersol Men’s Club, a Speak Easy, and a Beauty Parlor and Day Spa. After completion of a three year renovation, The Inn at Irving Place opened its door in December of 1994.
The Inn has only twelve guest rooms, junior suites and residences each of them with their own names and every one of them has furnished with exquisite antiques reminiscent of the New York of Edith Wharton. After the lobby there is the traditional chick Mendl’s Tea Salon, where you can have your breakfast or five o”clock tea..Inn is a very interesting place to expereince the life of 19th century New York.
