I have stayed at least four times at The Gracie Inn. The location is set on a quiet, residential neighborhood a block away from the East River. There are two or three good restaurants and a full service cafeteria less than two short blocks away which I cater to. The rooms are all different. Sizes vary from ample one bedrooms... More

It was an excellent stay, with a very friendly staff. Our needs were simple and this hotel fits them perfectly. We stayed in the penthouse which is wonderful. The outside terrace and views are the perfect NY escape. We loved the flowers out there.

I stayed for only 1 night. It was a nice and comfortable place. The breakfast options were limited -- but since it was for only one night I was fine with it. It was close to the place I needed to be in Upper Eastside Manhattan.

Location,price,cleanliness, friendliness. Look where you are. Walk everywhere, the park, the subway, the river view. Once we had problems with heat. Free night, no hastle. Other places, close should I say the names? Probably not. More $$, not as nice.

I have stayed at the Gracie inn numerous times and it's always been the same. Perfect!!!!! It is on a tree lined street, quiet neighborhood. Very private "boutique" style Inn. Subways less than a block away.
