At night, a DJ plays music by the pool and it becomes a bit of a scene that may not be family friendly. Early Continental breakfast is provided until noon daily.

My daughter & I decided to go to NY to celebrate our birthdays. (My daughter's 16th/my slightly older birthday!) I came across this Hotel and it was the best find ever.
We arrived on the 3rd July. We were greeted at the pavement by someone who helped us take out cases in.The staff at reception were very friendly & professional. The view was exactly the one we wanted & we were on the 16th floor. There was also a bottle of cava for me! The room was clean, cool (no charge for air con & wifi worked perfectly). The bathroom had little sachets of body cream, shower gel, shampoo/conditioner &tissues. The walk in shower was powerful & hot.Most importantly the bed was very comfortable.We also had a fridge, a small ironing board, iron, kettle & coffee in our room.
The breakfast variety left us wanting for nothing, fruit, cold meats, yoghurt, choice of teas, a coffee machine, cheeses, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, a choice of bagels/sliced bread, cakes, Nutella, Philadelphia cheese, honey, butter and cereals. Definitely a great start to the day.
There is also a swimming pool.We did not use it even though we had our swimming costumes but it looked like fun for both adults and children.
The location is fantastic. You can walk to Central Park, two minutes from Broadway and one minute to Times Square, 10 mins to Grand Central.
We had an amazing time in NY much of this thanks to Room Mate Grace Hotel. I cannot wait to go back just to stay here again.
Definitely a small gem in a Big Apple!
Everything was amazing ! The staff was very profesional and charming, the mattress was really comfortable and room very clean. I tried the breakfast and it was DELICIOUS, they have quality products and the price is more than reasonable for NYC. They also have a pool which is very unusual in Midtown and it is perfect if you want to relax after doing tourism . I would come back again and I will recommend it to all my family and friend .
