Chic decor, luxury amenities at this stylish hotel near Gramercy Park
This hotel is all about style. Its small size (just 135 rooms) and location in the Gramercy Park neighborhood make it feel more intimate and less touristy than a Midtown high-rise property. Modern furniture and animal print accents lend a hip vibe. Frette linens and marble bathrooms provide luxurious touches. A guest lounge offers free coffee and tea and computers for guests to use.
Highlights
  • Luxury linens and marble bathrooms
  • Guest lounge with seasonal outdoor terrace

Clean, comfortable closet

The location was great. The room was clean and sufficient but way too small for my taste. Good enough for just one night.

Ideally located getaway

Fantastic hotel, very clean, welcoming with friendly staff. Lovely views from 10th floor balcony of the Empire State Building. Ideally situated for all attractions, close to subway for further away attractions. Breakfast was expensive but found a lovely breakfast place just across the road at Pick-a-Bagel. Some rooms are on the small size so try to upgrade to a larger one if you can. All in all no real complaints and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will return sooner rather than later.

Empire State Building is a must - taking the lift to the top to see the outrageous views of Manhattan.

Above and Beyond

Had a great stay here! Was there for 4 nights - got free WiFi as a result. Room was kinda small and I inquired about a suite - they upgraded me for a very small fee for 2 of the nights - and gave me a 3rd night in the suite free! Even had our own semi-private terrace w/ an amazing view of the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. Staff went above and beyond for everything. Only slight bummer was that the a/c didn't seem to work the suite bedroom - it was freezing outside but warm in the room?? Wasn't enough to make us call for service though so not a big deal. (Would be a big deal in summer.) Totally staying here again!

Good stay on the go

This was a good place to crash for two nights and it was in between our destinations - SoHo and Williamsburg, and very close to east village. In one direction, you have about a 6 block walk to some awesome restaurants (namely, Momofuku), and in the other direction it's the same distance to the train, that takes two stops before Bedford St (be sure to try Everyman Espresso for coffee before getting on the train). The hotel also offers a town car service to the airport for $40 - better than a cab and very accommodating.

Nice Decor

The hotel room was decent size with a nice decor. The light switch in the bathroom seemed to stick and they only provided two bath towels, which for women is an issue when they use annex track towel for their hair. They charge for wifi use by the device, not the room, although it is free in the lounge. Having said all this, I would still go back again as the rooms were nice and the price reasonable.

Nice boutique hotel

Everything about the hotel was great. It's noisy anywhere you stay in NYC. My only critique was that we got a double bed instead of a queen.
