My wife and I were excited about staying at this Inn based on the website photos and video. What a mistake! We arrived exhausted after a 12 hour drive, just to find that everything in our room was filthy and disgusting. When we checked the beds, the sheets were full of dirt and hair! The pillow cases were turned inside-out. No one was available on-site, so we called the number on the front door and left a message describing out extreme dissatisfaction. No one returned our call. Needless to say, we left and had to find another place to stay. I have disputed the charges with my credit card company and will sue the Inn if my money is not refunded. They should pay us for our emotional distress. Jay. Krall, Raleigh, NC

The inn is cute, in a residential neighborhood. The breakfast was served very nicely right to our door. The room had a dining area, couch, tv, small efficiency kitchen. It was clean and well lit. The service was very pleasant and friendly. It is only a fifteen minute walk from the Met Museum and plenty of shopping and dining. I was a little worried when I saw the review from mr negative. I have no idea where he stayed it couldn't have been at the gracie inn. I would recommend it. Regarding bedandbreakfast.com, the process to use the gift cards was completely pleasant and painless.

As a former New Yorker, and who lived in "the City" for over 40 years I sadly have to report that this hotel as disgusting! Any review you see that is fates this hotel more than a one star hotel is either and friend, employee, or is someone who is used to sleeping in a tent. After retiring and living in California for 5 years I decided to go back and visit my brother, who lives a block away from this flea trap. When my wife searched for a reasonable hotel for me on the web she found this place, and called up to make a reservation. When she told me the address I was shocked that I never heard of this Hotel. Since I know the area very well, my brother lives one block away; I looked them up on the web and saw nice pictures, etc. of the rooms and assorted accommodations there. I called to double check my sanity and while talking to them I checked them out their address on Google Street view and just saw a very old tenement building, the type of building that have been torn down over 40 years ago. I asked the reservation guy to confirm that I was looking at the right building and he confirmed it, but told me that it was totally redone on the inside and that the pictures were actuate. When I got there, one has to use a complicated 12 step procedure to get in, and opened the main door, I could see that this place was a major candidate for urban renewal. The pictures you see on the web are not of this hotel. The elevator can handle a total of 2 people with luggage, at best. The door to the room is so old that the spaces for the original locks are still there. The minute I opened the door I was horrified of what I saw, and it was apparent that, for even a blind person, that this room was still in its original 1920s state with the exception of a bed. The room had a very small dirty a/c, etc. The flat panel TV that is really a 19in commuter monitor hooked up to 2 remotes that an engineer could figure out how to use. Since it was very late and I had prepaid 3 days, and, once again, there was NO FRONT desk personnel and I could not check out and get a full refund. I went out and got a bottle of wine, drank most of it and went to sleep. The next day, I spoke to the manager (who also cleans the rooms) that I wanted to checkout and get a refund for the two days I had prepaid. We also had a conversation regarding the deceptive pictures of the hotel on the web, and he of course agreed that they used random pictures but they were not of the actual hotel. I got out as fast as I could.... and for a few dollars more stayed at a Marriot Courtyard.
Funny story. Maybe that bottle of wine he mentioned in his review went to his head. (note: he did mention his sanity in the review, as well) We are not going to waste your time with a story and we promise not to make value judgments on what should be torn down… as we love NY history and NY architecture that is why we live and work here. We do not make value judgments on who cleans rooms. We are a team and every position on our team is important. We don’t accuse “other guest” of “sleeping in tents” that would make us sound pious. We don’t make acquisitions of who wrote previous reviews without any evidence as that would make us look less creditable. We never admitted to his claim of “random” pictures because that conversation never took place. What we will say that we are honest, work hard and do not misrepresent ourselves. The guest never complained while here on property and stayed he did stay all three days. Any he never approached the third party be booked with either. This is not a prison. It is a hotel. So why the rant on-line? Our questions are… Why was he using the AC in late November when it was below freezing? Our elevator holds 4 persons or 1000 lbs per the inspection sticker from NY Dept of Bldgs. Is he claiming to trump this dept.? The Dept of Bldgs, AAA, NY Hotel Assoc. and Expedia inspected our locks and they passed. What does he know that they don’t? What is a commuter monitor? What type of engineer? Funny they did not mention an engineer was needed when we bought the TV from Best Buy.

I stayed at the Gracie Inn Hotel recently this weekend. The overall experience was great within the hotel. However, it was a little rough getting to the hotel because of transportation. We took metro and bus. After we made it and we got into the rooms it was all worth it. I wasn't disappointed at all! The smell of the room very refreshing, crisp sheets, clean room, and great views. It was absolutely the best experience in NYC that I've encountered. The neighborhood is quiet and it was truly a great weekend! I'm definitely making this hotel my #1 and will be back again in October.

I visited the Gracie Inn for a trip with a friend. We needed a place to stay that was centralized and close to the subway/restaurants. It was great - our room was a pretty good size compared to other rooms I've stayed in NYC and it even had a little kitchen in it! Bed was a good size, could use some new pillows. Overall the building was quite charming and the accents in the room were adorable. Wasn't too far of a walk to the subway and there is a little cafe right on at the end of the block. It was great that they remembered my name and even remembered it when delivering breakfast - I will return as soon as I can!

I was in New York City at the start of February and was very impressed with The Gracie Inn! The location made it very easy to travel from meetings throughout the city. I took the subway a few times, but when I took a cab downtown to the Financial District, it was not too expensive! The breakfast did not really fill me up, but it was great to have a cup of coffee and some fruit brought to my room before a busy day. I would stay here again, and I look forward to my next trip to the NYC area. Also, the staff are very kind and funny!
