Stayed at the Room Mate Grace for a quick two day trip to New York City. Upon arrival, we were instantly greeted by the friendly staff who were more than helpful in providing restaurant, sight seeing and overall fun activities for our stay. We booked a standard room with a queen, but we were upgraded to a king while checking in. The room was clean and very big for New York City standards. Upgraded fixtures/lightning throughout as well as a very comfortable bed and bedding. The only issue I could foresee for some would be the lack of a view, however this wasn't an issue for us. The hotel is around a 1-2 minute walk to Times Square so getting around that part of the city was never an issue!
