"Wonderful Discreet Luxury Hotel"
The hotel is a favorite of ours. We have stayed there multiple times. It is on Grammercy Park one of the quietest spots in Manhattan although it is only a block from Park Avenue and a little further to the Flatiron District. The hotel is so discreet the sign at the door is unlit and about a foot square. The decoration is eclectic chic. It is luxurious but not in a conventional way. Maialino's is a wonderful all day Danny Meyers restaurant. The service is great.
"Don't Go if you are over age 30"
We stay in 5 star hotels all over the world. This is not up to snuff. Pricey (expected) but not 1 thing included. Room had 1 small bottle of complimentary water (not even 2). The bottle of water next to the bed was 10$. A pot of coffee and 2 OJ's brought to our room was 40$. (took 45 minutes both mornings) No coffee apparatus for when you first wake up. Concierge were young and inexperienced. The bars turn in to a scene at night for young people, as are the majority of the people you see anywhere in the hotel. Trendy dark red decor in halls and room (no good lighting anywhere) made it actually feel dank. For a 5* hotel, I didn't expect an industrial style toilet handle (public bathroom) that was so loud it made you jump. This hotel is missing the attention to details that make true 5* hotels a pleasure.
"Super stylish hotel with friendly staff and it's in a great location."
The lush decor in our Gramercy Junior Suite was a delight. The overall interior design was superb with our bed being super comfortable. We loved the hotel restaurant, Maialino and the Rose Bar. Easy walk to Flatiron and Union Square.
Great location....quiet mostly residential area. Decorating ....I say more like the Gatsby Era (but Hubby disagrees). We both agree it is beautiful! Concierge wonderful as are the rest of the staff.Restaurant and Bar on site....when we were there had an excellent Jazz combo. They recognized our 50th and shared it with reservations they made at other places!
"Perfect room for a rainy winter weekend"
We stayed here with our kids for a weekend in NYC and adored it. The room was comfortable and well appointed. It was so warm and cozy with dark moody lighting and plush velvet furnishing that we had a hard time convincing the kids to leave the room and go out in the cold rain. It's NYC so of course proportions are on the smaller side but the room was laid out well and there were even a few nooks and crannies that the kids enjoyed hanging out in so it didn't feel like we were all stuck in the same room together all the time. Our room was a suite with a king bed and a sofa bed. There was a glass door hung with velvet curtains separating the two areas which gave us a nice amount of privacy between the sleeping areas when we wanted it. I had been a little unsure about staying in the area because most of the things we wanted to do and see were uptown or further downtown but it was a perfect central location. It was fast and easy to travel to around the city either via the Subway or taxi and when we returned home we enjoyed the quiet, relaxed atmosphere of the neighbourhood. We can't wait to stay here again!
