Exactly what we wanted

This hotel is ideally located for short break to New York. Very close to Times Square and also Subway junctions for getting to wherever you've planned. Staff were very friendly. (Gave a comp breakfast just because we had to wait 10 minutes to check in). Hotel is very clean.

Wonderful little boutique hotel

My wife and i stayed at this hotel to celebrate her birthday in January. When we checked in the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Frankie. When we entered our room (which was well presented) we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and 2 glasses along with a lovely birthday message for my wife. What a lovely touch! We have stayed in New York many times before but never at this hotel. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful towards us and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Only about 150 yards and we were in Times Square. We will stay at this hotel every time we visit New York from now on. Also a massive plus was the fact that there is " No Resort Fee ".

I'm pleased that our Front Desk team helped make it a great visit-- I'll be sure to share your compliments with Frankie. Glad that our location made it easy to get around the city on foot and that your room allowed you to fully rest after your days exploring. We hope to have the chance to welcome you back. And yes, we are one of the last hotels in Manhattan that do not charge a "resort fee" or "facility fee" on top of the daily rate. I am very happy to read you highly value this effort.

Good hotel, amazing location

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in Feb 2020 for our first trip to NYC. The hotel is in a great location, just round the corner from Times Square but far enough away as to not be too bright/noisy at night. The rooms were clean and the staff were helpful when we asked them any questions. We did not spend much time in the hotel or use the facilities/bar/restaurant so I cannot comment on that but as a base to explore the city it was perfect for us! The rooms aren’t anything spectacular but you definitely get what you pay for. Would recommend as a clean, central place to come back to after a busy day exploring.

Sisters 40th birthday - Grace is our new BFF

WOW, WOW, WOW, Absolutely fantastic, amazingly located and very reasonably priced hotel, from start to end our stay was superb even better than in some 5 star places we have stayed. Upon checking in my sister received a bottle of champagne to celebrate her birthday which was so thoughtful. Our room was the twin single bedded room which was more than adequate in size for us 2 with the comfiest of beds, all amenities you could need I.e.fridge, kettle, iron/board toiletries etc and a super large shower/ bathroom. Ample storage and space for 6 cases, we made this our home for a week and we were certainly not disappointed as the staff are super helpful and friendly and the hotel is meticulously clean. Fab bar area, pool, sauna and gym section gives this hotel a very funky vibe indeed. Perfectly located steps away from the bright lights of Times Square with no resort fee to pay only a security refundable deposit makes this the ideal stay in super safe surroundings. Whilst we did not take advantage of the breakfast it certainly looked plentiful however when you have everything on the doorstep you are spoilt for choice so it is personal options. Everything is within easy reach and advice is offered by reception should you need any pointers. I could go on much more about this hotel however I would just say please try for yourself and ignore any bad reviews as they are not warranted at all. We are 2 sisters it was our first time in New York and never once did we feel unsafe or uncomfortable. A truly welcome bed to return to upon the miles of adventures you will encounter. We felt more at home and safe here than in London. I would not hesitate to recommend Room Mate Grace as a perfect base to start in the city of dreams. We have stayed many places around the world and this place rates very highly up there now too!! Thank you especially to Loida and the cleaning team. We miss you already. Grace is our new BFF Forever. (Oh and Bobby Van's steakhouse across the road and the Irish pub next door do amazing food too) we love you NYC thank you for the best week ever.
