This place was a huge disappointment! HUGE!!! We stayed from 10/16-10/19 and if I hadn't already paid in full I would've left after the first 5 minutes. I should have known something wasn't right when Gracie Inn charged by credit card 5 days before checking in. I called to ask why they hadn't waited till I check in on 10/16... More

Where to start. This hotel was really really reaaaaaaally NASTY. Overpriced dirty and the website is misleading/ false advertising. No one to greet you upon arrival. No complimentary water. Freezer was iced up. Dirty foyer stairs and carpet. Ancient lift. Television didn't work. Remote was missing. Sheets were unchanged with hair and dirt when we arrived. Floors were sticky. Bed...

By The Looks Of This Place Its Well On Its Way Of Being Labeled As A Shelter Than A Hotel Because This Place Is An Absolute Dump. Poor Management And Rude Unprofessional Staff. If You Ever Had The Blessing Of Seeing Any Your Whole Stay There. Read All Reviews. Take Warning. All Good Reviews Have To Be By Management Themselves.... More

We (a German family with 3 kids) booked the Penthouse at the “Gracie Inn Hotel” for one week in September 2014. The location of the hotel is quite good, the website photos and video are really promising and the price seemed to be reasonable. What a disappointment! First of all and as agreed upon, the hotel debited my credit card... More

Stayed here last week for 2 nights. The location on Upper East Side is awesome, safe, residential, quiet, lots of great restaurants and a block from walks along the East River. The rate is half the chain hotels in the area and now I know why. This could be a really charming place but the owner has really sunk to... More

We stayed for one night and it was not a nice experience. Room was not clean, nobody to help you and they did not refund the second night we did not stay as per their final invoice. I would not recommend any one to stay here. Tjaart

We stayed at the Gracie Inn Hotel last year and it was wonderful. Since then, they have changed management. Our room was never cleaned - there was soap from the previous people in the bathroom who stayed there. There was NO breakfast, there was NOBODY at the front desk to assist you. It was very dirty. I would not ever... More

I would never stay in the Gracie Inn Hotel again. My biggest complaint would be with the overall cleanliness of the facility. In particular, the stairwell looked like it had not been vacuumed for a month . I would suggest that the carpet on the stairs and outside the rooms be thououghly cleaned to remove the gross spots. The floor... More

This is the worst place we have ever been, the bed is uncomfortable, the TV isn't working, the website says free wifi but we have none, the room is filthy, there are no wash cloths in the room and the worst part is there is a bell that is outside to ring someone in and it has already rang several...

I stayed here in 2004 and thought it was a great hotel. Very much like a left bank Parisian hotel with breakfast. I went back this weekend and it looked like no one maintained it since 2004. The air conditioner was connected with an extension cord that ran across the kitchen stove; the sheets were so old they had holes... More
