Great Location

This hotel is in a great location. Only two blocks Time Square and one block from the subways. The rooms are smaller but cozy, the staff are kind and the beds are comfortable. My husband and I slept later that ever. The wallpaper is super funky, but in a good way. The shower is large and all the basics are in the room. I love the packaging for their toiletries, so cute. They have a sauna and pool area. I’m not crazy about in indoor pool, it’s like swimming in warm pee. The sauna was great. Only downside is the lounge area and their lack of selections. The advertise and promote happy hour with specific selections and don’t offer them.

Last Minute Theatre Trip

Quick trip into the city for a show prompted us to reserve a room for the night at this very reasonably priced hotel. Room Mate Grace is a fun, clean and all-around great place to stay. The lobby, public spaces and rooms are beautifully decorated. The room, albeit small, was not claustrophobic. We were facing the street on the 4th floor and the noise did not bother us on a Saturday night, but we are sound sleepers. The bed was very comfortable and the linens very nice. The platform bed against the wall/window was not an issue for us. Could be fun for couples ;-). The amenities were plentiful...mini bar, snacks, toiletries, kettle, hair dryer, etc. We had a drink at the bar (not really a destination, but a place to pass the time) using the buy one get one free coupon you receive with your room. The pool option is nice if you have time. Our only complaint was the room was a little stuffy. Other than that, it was a great stay and literally steps from Times Square. We look forward to returning in the future.

Second stay and even better than before!

This was our second stay at Grace, this time we stayed for 6 nights over christmas. The hotel was just as remembered and i can't really fault it at all! Bed is sooo comfy, spacious rooms for NY, breakfast 10/10, nice pool, staff lovely, i could go on.. i'd reccomend this place in a heartbeat for anyone wanting to stay in Times Sqaure. If we return to NY, we wouldn't stay anywhere else! The only minor downsides are the lighting in the room is pretty dark, which can prove difficult when doing hair/make up! But it's nothing major. Also it might have been nice for the hotel to make more of a fuss for Christmas Day? Just a suggestion though! :)

Bed on a platform- so if you don't mind crawling in and out?

The room accommodations were very tight. I knew to expect a bunk hanging over the bed, but I didn't expect the bed to be on a platform to the wall, so the person on the inside could not just get out of bed. You were stuck crawling on the tiny platform and bed to get in and out. There was a tiny stool to sit on. Small rooms can be fine when I can go sit in the lobby and wait for my family. Not here. Not any good seating in the lobby either. There is a pool( more like a hot tub) my husband and son liked except young people were enjoying it a lot with a lot of drinking and fun. The sauna was nice too. But these all closed soon for a couple of days. Our housekeeper was so kind and wonderful. December 24 the evening desk folks were wonderful too. So kind and helpful. Great location for theaters. Easy access to subway.

Dear guest. First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to write such candid review about your stay at Room Mate Grace Hotel. I regret to hear you were not fully satisfied with your experience. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, so I'm disappointed that you felt let down by our accommodations. The rooms have been designed to maximize its layout, therefore the mattress is on a platform, so our guests can allocate their luggage underneath. Thank you for your nice comments about our staff members, or our amazing location. We recognize that we fell short and hope to have the chance to welcome you back to show your our best. Please contact me directly and we will try our best to turn your opinion on Grace around. Warmly, Alvaro Diaz-Martos General Manager Room Mate Grace Hotel a.diaz@room-matehotels.com

Oasis in the heart of Times Square

The Room Mate Grace Hotel is the perfect little oasis in the heart of Times Square. The hotel is a one minute walk to Times Square and close to all the theaters. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating and I really liked the small hotel feel. I booked a king room and it was perfect. It was a little on the small size (all NYC hotel rooms are), but had everything I needed. A very comfortable king-size bed, a large modern bathroom with all the amenities, and a desk and vanity. The room had a large window so I could look out and see the sights. The hotel also had breakfast that was served until noon-great for late sleepers like me! There is also an indoor pool, which is unheard of in NYC, especially in smaller hotels. The Room Mate Grace definitely makes my short list for NYC hotels. I will be back!!!
