“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The rooms are small but clean and comfortable, . We leave the laptop and money in the room safe and had no problem.
The hotel is well located, close to times square. The breakfast is optional, we prefer to have breakfast near the hotel, has a starbucks and a bakery on the same block. The staff is just ok, no praise and no complaints. We had great days in New York and certainly we will stay in this hotel again.

If you enjoy being in the middle of it all, this hotel is perfect. Times square is literally right outside the door. I was kind of worried about how noisy it was going to be because we were so close to all the craziness, but you couldn't hear anything in the room. The bed is amazing!
The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. We didn't know the area that well and they were always more than happy to help us out with directions. The hotel design is very modern with random patterns on the walls. It's just such a cool place. And the price is pretty good considering on the location.

Tip: If you stay here make sure you go to the Cranberry Cafe for breakfast. Their mocha lattes are incredible. Also check out O'Lunney's Irish Pub for lunch or dinner. Both of these places are right by the hotel.

I would absolutely stay here again!

This hotel is only a few doors down from the Lyceum Theater and around the corner from the heart of Time Square. Friendly staff. Plenty of places to eat next door and across the street.

Loved the funky room! More spacious than I expected being it's location. Clean.

For us it was a place to sleep for 1 night.

I am currently lodged at the Grace. Applied for a superior room which happened to be extremely small (room 1005). No internet conection in the room despite having asked over 10 times to reception. The entrance is like a small cave with a tiny pool. The service...anything but good. I have travelled a lot to New York and I can tell you, I will never again be at this hotel. Definetely not worth for 500USD a night. It really reminds me of the youth hostels you go to when you are 18...Avoid at all cost!!!

Room Tip: Do not come to this hotel!!!

We stayed this year the first time at Room Mate Grace, as we liked the stylish appearance shown in the internet, and the promise was kept. The hotel is really nice in style, even though our room was very small (we were with friends, their room was as nice but had more space).
The location between Battery Park and Times Square is very good and it is safe to walk back from the subway or Rockefeller plaza even later in the night.
Service from the lobby staff was exceptional. We lost our iPhone on the flight, and Ronny from the lobby did his utmost to help us to get it back - called Lost&Found at the airport, searched in the internet for a search form from the flight carrier and filled it out for us (and believe it or not, we really got back the phone after 2.5 month!). But also the other staff was always helpful and responsive to our requests and questions.
Breakfast is o.k. for the price, service in the breakfast area was quite slow, though.
The only downside was the noise, as we were in the 6th floor and the noise level from the street and the 4th floor rooftop bar next door was quite high (but we had good earplugs with us).

Room Tip: If the floors are comparable, I would avoid room 1 and 12 as they are smaller than the others (at le...

I was a bit worried after looking at some of the reviews, we arrived at 10pm, the street was bouncing and we were really surprised how near Time square we were. We were greeted by reception staff, checked us in really quickly, and they were really helpful telling us where to go and get something to eat. Our room was small but that's what you get in New York, we had a double bed and there was a single bunk above ours, this wasn't ideal as it was for our 18 year old daughter and it was a bit cramped for 8 nights, I must add, the beds were really comfy, the room was cleaned every day and the bathroom was quite big and very clean, nice clean towels and dressing gowns every day. The pool was great, our daughter used it each day, there is a swim up bar too. The door man was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him, I would recommend this hotel to anyone if you are looking for a clean place to crash right in Time Square

Room Tip: We were in room 901 and it was really quiet and the beds are to die for zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
