Chic decor, luxury amenities at this stylish hotel near Gramercy Park
This hotel is all about style. Its small size (just 135 rooms) and location in the Gramercy Park neighborhood make it feel more intimate and less touristy than a Midtown high-rise property. Modern furniture and animal print accents lend a hip vibe. Frette linens and marble bathrooms provide luxurious touches. A guest lounge offers free coffee and tea and computers for guests to use.

Not a Bad Deal

The location was excellent; only a couple of blocks to the nearest subway stop. Of course there are tons of restaurants nearby (a trademark of NYC). The real negative was the climate control of the room: i.e. I had none. Thankfully it was Spring and I could open a window to cool down the room for sleeping BUT then you invite more street noise into the room.

Not what I expected...

This hotel room was WAY too small. You couldn't fit more than one person in the room, with luggage. The door actually hit the bed when opened. There was no temperature control in the room, so I was sweating one night and freezing another. There was also plumbing issues that caused the water to run the color of mud at one point, but luckily cleared up after running it for 5 minutes.

Hot and cramped

Location was perfect for our needs. The room was very small, could barely walk around the bed. The bathroom had zero counterspace- made it very difficult to put makeup on, and also very small. The heater was not working well and we roasted, even with the "high cool" on. Would stay again, just because of the location.

eh

Rooms and bathrooms were VERY tiny. To be expected for a boutique hotel but this was just too small and uncomfortable. No room for clothes and suitcases. The room was also very hot and stuffy but the air conditioning did not work - it only blew hot air. We opened the windows to get some air flowing but it was so noisy outside we still couldn't sleep. The other people we were traveling with said they had the same problem in their room. However, the decor was trendy and the attached restaurant, Inoteca, was great for wine and small plates and seemed popular with neighborhood people.

Clean, comfortable closet

The location was great. The room was clean and sufficient but way too small for my taste. Good enough for just one night.

Great location, not so great room

This hotel has a wonderful location. However, the rooms are not that great. VERY small, TERRIBLE mattress, and peeling bathtub. Walls are thin so you can hear the water run. The rooftop is nice and the computer/guest room is adequate.

Good Manhattan Value

The room was small, but well set up. The guest lounge wifi didn't work and the complimentary cocktail hour never happened.

Not the greatest

Rooms are very small, I know everything in NYC tends to be smaller but this one was tiny. it is very noise. I dont think was worth the price.

Small but nice

The rooms are small - As in one person needs to be on the bed in order for the other person to move around! The hotel is in a nice location, especially if you are OK with walking around. There are quite a few dining options nearby on 3rd Avenue. The room I had was quiet and isolated - very nice. My only concern was that the room was too hot, and I could not get the temperature down. I set the goal temperature at 65 F, but could not get the room below 75 F!
