By The Looks Of This Place Its Well On Its Way Of Being Labeled As A Shelter Than A Hotel Because This Place Is An Absolute Dump. Poor Management And Rude Unprofessional Staff. If You Ever Had The Blessing Of Seeing Any Your Whole Stay There. Read All Reviews. Take Warning. All Good Reviews Have To Be By Management Themselves....

We (a German family with 3 kids) booked the Penthouse at the “Gracie Inn Hotel” for one week in September 2014. The location of the hotel is quite good, the website photos and video are really promising and the price seemed to be reasonable. What a disappointment! First of all and as agreed upon, the hotel debited my credit card...

The rate is half the chain hotels in the area and now I know why. This could be a really charming place but the owner has really sunk to...

We stayed for one night and it was not a nice experience. Room was not clean, nobody to help you and they did not refund the second night we did not stay as per their final invoice. I would not recommend any one to stay here. Tjaart

I would not ever...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
