I have to admit after reading some of the reviews on here I was a bit concerned about a trip to the Marrkech. Luckily this was completely unfounded. What a lovely, professional hotel.
The hotel is definitely boutique and the rooms are smaller than most normal hotels however there is a real homely feel to it. And with everything the city has to offer anything fancier would be wasted when you are using it as a base.
The door staff and counter staff are so friendly and always ready to help (even when the query is something is outrageous as finding size 15 shoes!!!) The bar is lively but can't be heard in the rooms. The stairs aren't so bad, particularly if you are walking everywhere anyway in the city.
My husband and I found the bed really comfortable, the bathroom more than adequate for our needs and although there was no wardrobe there was plenty of place for our stuff. Housekeeping are spot on and the room was spotless every time we came back to our room after a long day out.
The ONLY thing that was a bit frustrating was the heating. As previous posters have said the radiators get red hot and can make it super uncomfortable, in addition they can be a little bit noisy too. This is less to do with the hotel and more to do with New York plumbing in general. These are the standard for buildings of this age and have been the same in other places I've stayed in NYC. We managed to switch ours off after the first day and even though it was snowing it was perfectly warm in the room all the time.
At the price we paid and the location to the subway, I would happily come back to the Marrakech in a heartbeat. Thank you for the wonderful trip guys!!!
