Hotel Deauville’s location is in the heart of the NoMad district. It’s in walking distance from the Empire State Building, Flatiron District, Time Square, Union Square, Little India, the Theatre District, major shopping centers and Central Park. Or if you’re heading elsewhere, there is a subway stop one block from the hotel. For the culturally minded, get easy access to many museums and galleries.
Located in a historic building built in 1901, the Deauville has a music room where guests can view the roster of legendary jazz musicians who have stayed here. It features a rustic brownstone exterior, continental style bathrooms and a hand-operated elevator.
The hotel offers 52 rooms featuring free Wi-Fi, TV, individual climate control, coffee/tea makers and a living space, as well as large bathrooms with a bathtub, a hairdryer and a shower. Some rooms feature views over Gramercy Park. A small fridge and a microwave are also provided for self-catering.
Families are welcome. The junior suite comes with a queen-size bed, natural linens, blackout drapes, a coffeemaker, microwave, fridge and living room. Cribs and cots are available.

OMG this hotel has shut down. We made a reservation in Sept 2016 for 7 nights in Sept 2017 and received an email confirmation. I tried to email the hotel 3 times and rang once when a security guard took my number and said he would get someone to ring me back. So after arriving at the Deauville we were met by the hotel doors being locked and a security lady sat in the foyer. She said the hotel had been closed a few month. She rang her boss who I spoke to and he said he had tried to ring me a few times which I said was bull**** no one had tried to ring me. It was a complete nightmare obviously after travelling over 3000 miles to be met with this not a good start to our dream holiday. The only positive was the lovely security lady tried to ring a few hotels for us and eventually we got booked into the Wellington hotel near Central Park. This then cost us another $25 dollars in a taxi to get there. Luckily I had fetched my debit card which I do not normally do as the Deauville was $79 dollars per night and the Wellington was $290 dollars per night. If I hadn't have had my card with me I do not know what we would have done because obviously we took cash for spend but not enough to cover a BIG added hotel bill and our spend also. It was a nightmare and do not want it to happen to anyone else. Disgusting by this so called family run hotel.
We stayed for a couple of nights, the welcome was friendly, the room clean but a bit small. There is a quirky old lift that has to be 'driven' by a member of staff which we found a bit awkward at times.
