I spent two days at the Gramercy park hotel last week, and I must say it was a stay with mixed feelings.
My first impression was not good, but I will admit that after some time the hotel kind of grew on me and I left with a better feeling than I had the first day.
The hotel lobby is nice but, as the rest of the hotel, dark. Too dark for my taste; almost depressive. And when I say dark, I mean dark red.
I had a room in the 9th floor, at the end of a corridor which, excuse my language, reminded me of a brothel in the red light districts of Amsterdam. Red red red, and almost no light at all. I am sure that this appeals to some people, but not to me.
My room was small and with my two suitcases it was difficult to move around. The bathroom was also very small, but even so one of the best parts of the hotel.
A stay at the Gramercy park hotel is not cheap at all, and when it comes to value for money a stay at this hotel is a really bad deal. Once again - as usual when staying in New York - I got really annoyed about paying so much money for a room, but still have to pay 16 USD for 24 hours internet connection. Why the heck can´t you just put this cost in the overall rate of the room? That way me as a customer will not feel that I am being robbed.
The best thing about the hotel is the location and the people working here. They were very nice and helpful. How ever it is not perfect service when the hotel information says that there will be complimentary coffee in the bar and this doesn't come true. Or when you ask for a complimentary coffee 10 minutes to late and have to pay for it instead.
In my opinion this is an average hotel; been here once, will not visit twice.
