Fun Space, Great Value, Fantastic Breakfast!
The decor was really cute, nautical themed! The bed was comfortable and we were able to actually sleep three in the middle of Time Square with one queen on the bottom and a double (I think, that or a twin, but it felt a little bigger) on top! A short walk to the theatre district and close to all the hustle and bustle, but nicely contained. The breakfast was included in our price and it was actually worth it, there was a wider assortment than I usually see in hotel breakfasts and it was served until noon when we were there. I would say overall the amenities put us over the top for the trip. If I had to stay in the middle of the city again, I'd definitely try for this hotel again.
There was a few small areas in the room that were peeling and I think a different ladder to get to the top "bunk" would be safer. The tiny metal rungs were a bit precarious (maybe something slightly slanted with larger steps to get up?).
Favorite place to stay in NYC
I am not a big fan of being in the middle of Times Square, however Room Mate Grace has a very cozy, boutique feel, which I love. The staff are friendly and I love the design details (ex: dimmer switches!) of the rooms. I am looking forward to staying at Room Mate Isabella in Florence in a month!
The decor was cute.
When we went to check-in, the person at the desk couldn't find our reservation (which we placed through Kayak). So he had me show him my confirmation email via my phone. Okay, sure, that's fine. But then he made me email the confirmation to his personal email because he said their accountant would need it.... It was bizarre. I checked that confirmation email up and down later on to make sure there was nothing he could use to steal my identity or commit credit card fraud. Anyway, forwarding my confirmation email to the clerk's personal email just seems very messy and unprofessional. He also charged an additional $25 to my card "in case of extra charges". When I checked out, I did not receive any notice about extra charges. A week later, I still do not have this extra charge back. The wallpaper in the room was peeling. The bed was definitely not the typical comfy hotel mattress I'm used to... it was very firm and the pillows had rough and cheap feeling cases. The bathroom set up is weird. The shower, toilet, and sinks are all exposed to the room. There is a sliding mirror that can either cover the toilet or the shower... not both at the same time. If you like privacy when you use the toilet, this may not be the place for you.
