Fiancé’s 40th Birthday Celebrations

Stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! The location is perfect and so close to all amenities! Staff were very welcoming and friendly. They were more than happy to help and would go out of their way to ensure you were satisfied! We travelled to NYC for my Fiancé’s 40th birthday celebrations and Room Mate Grace provided a lovely gesture of champagne and flutes in our room! This was accompanied by a little note wishing us a great stay and birthday! Fabulous! Usually you can’t wait to get home and get into your own bed when the holiday finishes! Not us, we wanted to stay longer as the bed was amazingly comfortable and relaxing. It was the most comfiest bed I have ever slept in! The pillows were amazing too! The pool is great after a long day walking in New York! It is lovely and warm and we were refreshed and relaxed after getting out. A great benefit to the hotel! I would recommend a stay and we will most certainly return. I have already recommended to my friend who is due to stay in NYC in 2020! Thanks for a pleasant and amazing stay! Well done Room Mate Grace!

Nice location

We have visited NYC for a week. We chose this hotel for the location. Perfect, just right 1 minute from times Square. Perfect underground connection from everywhere! Rooms are quite small, and dark ( style in general is modern but dark, corridors needs more light, even reception). In general the hotel needs maintenance. Staff is friendly, all of them offer us nice service and friendly smile; specially Maria, who made our check out. We would say that we will return.

Dear onst11. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I'm glad our location was such a great fit for your visit, but regret to hear that you felt let down by our level of general maintenance. We work hard to keep the hotel up with our high standards, even though we have a very high occupancy. Please know that this does not reflect our high standards. We hope to have the chance to host you again to show you our best. You can find my email below. Do not hesitate to email me more about your experience or those areas you believe we should pay close attention to. Warmly, Alvaro Diaz-Martos General Manager Room Mate Grace Hotel a.diaz@room-matehotels.com

CLEAN ROOM, PERSONALIZED TREAT , DESERVE 5 STARS

I am a business traveler and every time I'm staying at Room Mate Grace its like being at Home. Staff are nice and they really care about the customer, they are closed and worried about the guest in a very natural way ( not like other international chains where they seems to be machines saying the same to everybody) . Room are quiet and clean and they have Room Service until 11 pm which is good if you have to work in the room and you don't want to waist your time going out searching for food . The gym is 24 hours open and I love it.

Dear Marloon. First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful review about your stay with us. These words truly made me proud! I am so happy to hear that you felt well cared for from the moment you arrived-- I can't think of a better compliment. I am happy to read you also tried our new "Room Service by Butler". All our customers love it! I'm looking forward to sharing your kind words with our whole team. We would love to host you again. Warmest regards.

Quirky hotel

This was a strange one, good value and brilliant location but if you’re offered a room facing the street don’t take it, very noisy all night and I wear ear plugs, there is only one very heavy curtain which you have to keep closed all the time because you can see right into the building opposite so obviously they can see into your room, an inner lighter curtain would have made the room lighter . The bed touches 3 sides of the room so the person on the inside has to climb over the other. On the plus side spotlessly clean

It's our priority to make sure all guests feel fully comfortable and well cared for, so we hope you'll consider giving us another chance so we can show you our best. Please let me know and I will make sure I find a quieter room for you this time. Warmest regards, Alvaro Diaz-Martos General Manager Room Mate Grace Hotel a.diaz@room-matehotels.com

Dear Lily. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us, and honoring us with the highest score! I'm not sure I can think of a better compliment than "spotless" Happy you felt so well taken care of by our team and that you especially enjoyed having breakfast every morning with us.
