“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
Close to Times Square and well positioned for Midtown's museums and shops, The Grace attracts business travellers during the week and young Europeans at the weekend. The style could be considered gaudy by some - Jetsons meets holiday camp - but some unexpected extras, like a petite swimming pool and a sauna, prove the hotel to be great value for money. The eccentric decor extends to the 139 rooms which have graphic-print wallpaper and beds mounted on faux-ostrich-skin platforms. A continental breakfast is included in the room rate, but bear in mind there's no concierge service.
