“Like Nowhere Else in NY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I had never heard of this place but have probably passed it a million times. It is tucked away on a side street in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The location is great for sightseeing and walking everywhere in Times Square and midtown, so it is great for tourists and those coming in for the theater. The lobby was crowded and understaffed at all times, but everyone was friendly and helpful. The place seems very cramped and small, but also very hip and European. It is very dark inside, even during the day. I carried a flashlight with me to my room after midnight. The rooms are small and oddly-shaped - very much like a tiny NYC apartment, but clean and tidy. My favorite feature was the in-ground indoor swimming pool, which is unheard of in inexpensive hotels in NYC. This one is right in the lobby with stadium seating and a swim-up bar. That alone was worth the cost of the room for me.

Location: The hotel was on a side street from Times Square, great to be close to the action...although we prefer mid town locations so you can get everywhere easily but don't have the crowds right outside.

Hotel: service was good, we didn't wait long at Reception & staff at the small breakfast buffet were friendly. The pool was nice but small & overlooked from the breakfast room & hall. The inside of the hotel & rooms were very dark. Rooms had very unique style & space to put your bags. The ladder up to the top bunk in our room was loose & needed re-fixing to the wall.

Price: for the quality of this hotel it was extremely expensive.

We stayed at Millenium Premium Hotel across the road for the rest of our stay which was brilliant. We used the club Lounge rate & had breakfast & evening snacks & drinks for cheaper than Room Mate Grace. The room was much lighter & spacier too.

Fantastic value for money hotel about 100m from Times Square and just gorgeous.
It has a real unique flair to the interior design, and a stunning pool/wet area facilities. Rooms are teeny tiny but I think they all are in NYC. Would I stay there again?! Absolutely maybe not with a 6.4ft boyfriend but it was
Great!

This week long holiday was delightful and made all the better by room mate grace, their lovely staff and convenient location. The bed itself was very comfortable and in all a very contemporary feel. The breakfast in the morning put a lining on the stomach with fresh waffles, Danish, and doughnuts. real nice coffee and fresh orange too.... all in all a great location and will be staying here again on our return to nyc.

This hotel was great! we stayed here for 6 nights over Christmas and the staff were always very helpful. Great location - very near times square and subway stations. The brekky at the hotel was good as well, with bagels and some hot food. It was really good value for money I think. We stayed in a deluxe room and it was a reasonable size. There is a great deli a few doors down from this hotel that makes yummy sandwiches. Would definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed very much my stay in this hotel, the room is clean and nice, the location is just excellent, so close to Time Square, I could not ask for more. There is an indoor pool, which was closed during my stay, but it is the high point there. The service was friendly and I would definitely stay there again.
