Great hotel in a great location

This hotel is a very short walk from Times Square. Our twin room, while basic, was always clean and had a nice powerful shower. The sink was outside the bathroom which I find strange. We didn’t experience any noise from the road or the hotel corridors so soundproofing is very good. All staff were very helpful, polite and friendly and Alan the concierge was brilliant in suggesting some places to eat. There was a good selection at breakfast that sets you up for the day. There is a bar and pool - both were a quiet haven when we visited. One great thing was the loan of a portable WiFi device for use when out and about.

Very good (not for elders)

We stayed four nights in Room Mate Grace NY. The location is perfect - in the core of NY attractions, a few meters from Times Square but in a quiet street. Many bars around the hotel. The room was nice, very clean and comfortable. The only thing that made me mention the elders is because you can get of the bed in only one side. The other sides of the bed are blocked by walls. This is the concept of this hotel. Not so comfortable for everyone. We enjoyed the staying and recommend it very much for visiting NY.

Perfect

Great location for the theatre. In the thick of the entertainment area. A welcoming and helpful front desk and concierge. We had a twin room and it was just right. Tiled bathroom was very clean and sparkly. Beds were comfy. We felt safe and happy.

Great location and good value (the room was amazingly small)

We booked one of the cheap rooms, and you get what you pay for. There was no desk and the platform bed was the only place to sit down. So it was not a great room to hang out in for long. The shower was very large and had great water pressure and temperature. It was great for sleeping as the sound proofing is very good. You are half a block off Times Square, within 3 to 5 minutes of several subway stations, and a ton of theaters. It is also only about a half hour walk from Hudson Yards and the north end of the High Line, and only about a 10 minute walk from Rockefeller Center.

Decent

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Cannot be beaten. Seconds away from Times Square and all the action. Noise was average for New York, and our sleep quality was pretty poor anyway due to jet lag. I would recommend ear plugs in any NY hotel! The hotel would do well to invest in some soft close doors to stop slamming in the early hours. The communal areas in the hotel were very dark in places and the foyer smelt like mildew, presumably from the pool. Didn’t have breakfast or use the pool/gym so can’t comment there. The pool is small and fully visible from the foyer/bar and can be closed off for private functions, FYI! My main niggles were that we had to ask multiple times for the tea/coffee facilities to be topped up, and for towels. One postage sized stamp towel per person isn’t enough. And frankly you shouldn’t have to ask every single day of your stay for such basic things. Staff seemed friendly and reception staff wanted to help us when they could. Did I enjoy my stay? Yes. Would I go back? No.
