We had a very pleasant experience here. The desk staff (and all the employees for that matter) were courteous and friendly. The room was spotless, as was the rest of the hotel. Everything worked and we had no complaints with any of the accommodations.
The Bistro was a minor disappointment because the first night we were there we had planned to have a light dinner after a big lunch nearby. Unfortunately, they had run out of most of the things we requested, apparently due to a big crowd the prior night. We wound up going to a nearby TGI Fridays as a result.
We were surprised by the color scheme in the room - colors were very bright. This seemed to date the hotel a little - but nothing was worn and there were no signs of anything being outdated.
The toilet is one of those new-fangled low flow units, which drives everyone nuts. I don't understand how you save water when you have to flush twice every time. But that's not Marriott's fault, I guess.
Overall, a very pleasant stay and we would definitely stay there again. The location is excellent, nearby are several universities, the Culinary Institute, and the Franklin Roosevelt museum and library (worth every penny to visit - it can take more than 4 hours to see it all, so go early). Also the Vanderbilt mansion is nearby, but we didn't get to see it this trip. We want to go back to do the 'walk across the Hudson' in the spring or summer.
