Unbelievable

Posted Apr 23, 2014
I booked this room to be close to the hospital where my wife was having surgerynin tnt morning. The room looked nothing like the brochure. Bubbled paint on the walls, just a terrible, terrible experience. I actually couldn't believe I used expedia to book this room. Or was like something out of a1980s nightmare. No staff on duty after 6pm.

Charming little Bed and Breakfast Hotel

Posted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Building a little dated but all very clean. Room pretty large for a NYC room, high ceiling. Staff very helpful. Good breakfast in bed
Cons: Bed frame/mattress noisy every time someone move.
Location: Located on a street near the river, calm during the night. 5 minutes by feet to Gracie Park and 15/20 to Central Park and Museum of Art.
It's a charming little hotel on Upper West Side with breakfast in bed. Good size room, with a kitchen a little dated, and a tiny bathroom, but all really clean. Parking is free in the streets West on East side.

Cute B&B but far from Metro

Posted Oct 15, 2013
Pros: That it felt like a mini apartment....That your breakfast is delivered right to your door at the time you request it
Cons: The rooms need some updates
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms could stand a little face lift, but very cute concept. Almost felt like a mini apartment. Only problem was my mattress was super squeaky and NOT very comfortable. Walk to the Metro was about 5-7 minutes. As long as the weather is comfortable, no problem if you enjoy walking. If weather is not comfortable, the walk would be miserable. Although I do have to say the area in which this B&B is located is very quiet, which is a big plus seeing that your only about a 15min Metro ride to all the action

Avoid unless you want a bad back!

Posted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything, the bed was a nightmare, they don't provide basic toiletries without asking, no one was there on our arrival etc.
Location: It is nowhere near the subway, I'm not averse to walking but it did mean we wasted a couple of hours each day trying to get where we wanted to go.
I've stayed in NYC a few times now and know it's expensive, but this was way worse than I would expect for the price. We arrived at 3.00pm although we had not been given a check in time, we could not get into the building. There was a note on the door to advise to phone a number if we arrived after 6.30pm (which we didn't). We are still waiting to find out the phenomenal expense this will have cost to have to phone on a UK mobile phone, the call took ages whilst we were given instructions on how to get in. The room was not the room we booked, I don't know if the room our paperwork said we had booked was as bad as the one we got. The bed was awful, we spent one night with our feet higher than our heads and then switched to sleep the other way round. It was so bad I ended up with a bad back which continued to hurt for several days and through my 2 long flights home, I'm now struggling at work. You were asked to give a time slot for breakfast and choose items. We didn't get the breakfast during the time slot, it was either early or late and we only once received the items chosen. I didn't even get a drink. We were provided random toiletries like mouthwash and cotton buds, but only 1/2 roll of toilet paper. After a couple of days (and the random pretend clean of the room - fake make the bed and empty a bin) we had to leave a note..it was not possible to ask anyone as it was rare we saw anyone. When we did, they were pleasant enough!

Up and down.

Posted Jul 18, 2013
The duplex suite was good for family privacy, not much room for an extra cot though, cute deck upstairs. The kitchen is a nice touch, but the microwave did not seem to work. Two window air conditioners. Expedia advertises free parking for this hotel, but the staff said that was a mistake on Expedia's part. We parked on the street and got a ticket. There is $25/day parking on the next block. But that was one of the main reasons we booked the hotel!! No breakfast room, you get it delivered to your room, but breakfast was pretty sketchy - you fill out a menu but don't be surprised if you get random items instead. The neighborhood is nice, with lots of restaurants and shops. Walking distance to Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum.

Air conditioning didn't work

Posted Jul 12, 2013
You get what you pay for. Good price and perfectly adequate room except the air conditioning didn't work. That is not acceptable!

OK for a short business visit.

Posted Jun 28, 2013
Cons: Inadequate wifi internet service.
Location: Very pleasant area, local cafes were pleasant.
This Hotel was satisfactorily clean and comfortable. Everything looked rather old, but not shabby. Staff were rarely visible, but when seen were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was rather modest but adequate for me. The shower and bathroom facilities were fine. The refrigerator and airconditioner worked well. There were cooking facilities which looked old but probably worked OK (I didn't use them). My main difficulty was that the wifi internet service was very poor. Although one could connec,t it was painfully slow and dropped out altogether for long periods. It was effectively useless, and this was particularly disappointing given that a lot of both my work and private communication is done this way. Connecting by phone was also problematic, as the office was only staffed for short periods, and external phonecalls could not reach me without the office's support. For 2 days this was all bearable, but I wouldn't choose to stay there for a longer period.

Very quaint, romantic, quiet place!

Posted Jun 15, 2013
Pros: Quaint, quiet, romantic, private!!!
Cons: Maybe a comfortable chair in the room.
Location: Very convenient for those wanting to see "the sights". Loved the neighborhood.
Sadly, we were only able to stay one night. I had to go to the emergency room and cut our stay short. I can't say enough nice things about the folks at Gracie for all they did to be of assistance! Can't wait to return.
