About Grace NYC by Room Mate Hotels
Grace NYC by Room Mate Hotels may be near the flashing lights of Times Square, but it has a youthful, arty feel more reminiscent of Downtown.
The vibrant hotel’s standout feature is the pool in the lobby, where guests can swim up to New York City’s only pool-side bar. It draws a lively crowd, especially during the hotel’s regular DJ parties. Or, after a long day of trekking the city, guests can rest their limbs in the steam room and sauna. Operated by the Madrid-based Room Mate hotel group, Grace NYC distinguishes itself with its whimsical decor, including graphic prints and bold wallpaper by Jonathan Adler.
The rooms are compact but smartly designed – some even come with bunk beds – and feature plenty of amenities, from free Wi-Fi and local calls to flatscreen TVs. A hearty Euro-style breakfast is served until noon. They know their clientele well: After a night out on the town, many appreciate the late service.
If your prime objective in New York City is to jump into the thick of things, you can’t do better than the Room Mate Grace. From 45th St. it’s an easy walk to the Theater District in one direction and Radio City Music Hall or Rockefeller Center in the other. There’s also plenty of trees and grass nearby in Bryant Park and Central Park.
The hotel has received high marks from travel press like Fodor’s, which concludes that it “delivers high-design lodgings on a budget.” Or as Frommer’s puts it: “Grace Hotel is one of the better moderate options in the Times Square area.”
