Union Square/ Gramercy Park Charming Studio
|Per night||$235 - $275|
450 square feet studio, L-shaped, large enough for two with an optional (small) third person on the leather sofa. Charming, spotless, spacious. Steinway grand piano. Plush down comforter and pillows. Westin Hotels Heavenly Bed, queen-size with goose down comforter and pillows, thick cotton sheets. No closet but plenty of hanging space (and velvet hangers) for clothes. Heated warmly in winter, cooled beautifully in summer. The rest of the year enjoy the fresh air flowing in through three French doors leading out to a balcony eight feet above beautiful Irving Place. Sounds of slow-moving traffic and passersby at peak times of day, but never annoyingly loud. You'll think you're living as they did in 1860 when the house was built.
Tiny but powerful kitchen. Bake a whole chicken in the toaster-size convection oven. Stew up a pot roast, fry eggs, or boil pasta in the Cuisinart 3-in-one cooker. Fine utensils and stemware for 4. Dine at the stylish coffee table in a leather sofa or comfortable suede armchair. Make coffee or whip up a shake in easy-to-use coffee maker and blender
Clean white bathroom with compact Euro-style shower, great water pressure, medicine cabinet, and fluffy white towels.
Not wheelchair accessible, sorry. And not suitable if you're seeking absolute quiet. Irving Place is not loud like most streets or avenues in New York but the windows are thin, you're only a few feet above the sidewalk, and you do hear street life and the conversations of passersby at peak times of day. My personal belongings packed neatly out of site except for a few things stored above the kitchen cabinets.

Heaven on earth

Thanks, Dan. The place is simple, yet spectacular. We could have napped on the terrace listening to the boats rocking back and forth for the rest of our lives. And we've never seen the sky with such beautiful pastel colors in our lives. The pool table is a masterpiece, the ping pong as fun as can be, and the beds so comfortable. Perfect in every way.
