I was not looking forward to staying at the Gramercy the first time I went, as I remembered it being a party place with over-the-top decor. In the end, though, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are probably not for everyone inasmuch as they are dark with furnishings unusual in a hotel, but it worked for me. The bathrooms are generally nice, although I had some issue with the shower. I have to give a VERY special kudos to Housekeeping, who puts all other of the hotel employees to shame. They are extraordinarily efficient, kind, and helpful. I am not sure who is in charge of that particular area, but they are doing an amazing job. The location is great, downtown but quiet, and close to everything. The weak spots: the front desk, cold, inefficient, unapologetic when things are wrong (such as, ahem, double-billing) and generally ill-mannered, not a good combination for a reception. The room service food is not great, and the restaurant is difficult to get into, even for guests (don't think you will be made to feel special, ie get a table, just because you are staying at the hotel). With all that said, I do think that for New York, there is value here, and I have stayed more than once.
