“It was OK”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Stayed at the Marmara for a business trip. Overall, it was OK. Was sharing the room with a co-worker and there was only 1 bed and a pull-out couch. The pull-out was not suitable for sleeping and we ended up sharing the bed, which was comfy. It was nice to have a small kitchen and living area where we could work comfortably. Furnishings and decor were pretty dated, including broken tile in the bathroom. Location was convenient to the Subway as well as a few restaurants and a small grocery store. There was a lot of construction outside and could be heard when window was open, which we needed to open as it got very hot in room.

Thank you for your honest feedback, we will accept “OK” but will strive for much more in the future. Most of our lovely suites have one large bed and a convertible sofa for the convenience of the family travelers, for your return trip maybe we can tempt you with our very spacious 2 bedroom suites, we look forward to that day.

Thank you,

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. The front desk staff was very nice and personable. They upgraded us to a larger room (at no cost) because one was available. It was giant! We had a kitchen, dining area, bedroom and bathroom. I'm pretty sure our room was bigger than most people's apartments in Manhattan! The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. There was about a 7 minute walk to the closest subway station. We also had to check out very early in the morning (4 am) to catch our flight, which was no problem at all. The doorman even went out at 4 am to get us a cab. It was a very nice stay and we highly recommend this hotel.

We had a family vacation in New York over Thanksgiving 2013.
We needed a place for 5 adults and 3 children close to my daughter on the upper east side.
Marmara Manhattan Upper East Side was perfect for us.
We rented a 3 bedroom 3 bath.
The Views were spectacular from the 26th floor ( Empire State Building and the Triboro Bridge at night)
There was plenty of room...nice living room, dining room, and kitchen and good sized bedrooms. The staff was friendly and efficient and came in every day to clean and change linens as needed.
The manager, Dennis Young, was outstanding!!!! He was very accommodating to our needs of more chairs and more silverware to serve a Thanksgiving meal. He was very helpful in telling us about restaurants around the area. He was helpful both over the phone when I called ahead and then during our stay. Umbrellas were provided to us to use during the rain.
I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again when I return to New York.

Thank you so much for “highly recommending” the hotel, it means a great deal to us to know that you will be back. We agree the 3 bedroom accommodations are “perfect” and their views cannot be matched. Our goal now is for you to be able to tell us what colors the Empire State Building is during ALL the holidays of 2014 and 2015 and…….

Thank you,

I had the pleasure of staying at the Marmara in the upper east side of Manhattan for several weeks this past year. As hard as it was to be away from home, the staff at the Marmara always made me like I was home with their professionalism, upbeat attitudes and willingness to always go that extra step to make my stay a delightful one. It actually felt like my second home. The apartments are great and our favorite part was sitting in the living room in the evening surrounded by New York City apartment lights. And it's always nice to have Hameed or Anthony or many of the others who greet you at the door with smiles on their faces. Although everyone is great, (Nestle and all the front desk staff), when it comes to customer service - there's Dennis Young who will always be there for you and is your lifeline to New York City. Dennis has to be the most positive, upbeat person you'll ever meet and a good one to know while staying at the Marmara. I miss my "family" at the Marmara. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor!

Your “family” misses you too, and were thrilled by your incredible review. With all the perks of our apartment style hotel suites, the sheer square footage, the stunning views and the Upper East side location, to have your fondest memories be of the “professional, upbeat, willing” staff is the greatest achievement of all. We cannot thank you enough to be considered “your second home” and are all eager to see you walk through the front doors again.

Was absolutely impressed by all aspects of this hotel. The hotel staff was helpful in every way. They went out of their way, especially Rojiny and Vanessa. We reserved a three bedroom apartment and it was so clean, comfortable and spacious. We also had a view of the Empire State Building that made our stay perfect. I looked forward to going back to the hotel each evening to go out on the balcony and view the city.
The beds and the bedding were very comfortable and inviting. Loved the decor in the lobby. Very quite part of town and close to many restaurants.
If I had to find any downside to staying at the Marmara, it would be the distance to the subway station; however, I believe a closer stop is in the process of being built.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise 3 bedroom units are very spacious Ask for a corner unit

We - a widely travelled German couple + baby - stayed at the Marmara in a 1 BR suite on one of the top floors of the building during a six week business trip.

Although there are newer and more stylish hotels in Manhattan, our well maintained, perfectly clean suite, looking as displayed on the website, had decent and pleasant design and furniture with kitchen and bathroom fully equipped for a long term stay.

We particularly liked the city views, the NY times delivered every morning to us and the professional and friendly Marmara staff. The room service was perfect. Dennis’ front desk team, the doormen and the handymen were at all times supportive, flexibly and – literally immediately - responding to our questions and needs.

The only downside: The subway construction works on 2nd Ave on weekdays and the all together not perfect noise shielding against the usual Manhattan background noise.

However, we can only recommend the Marmara !!

A tremendous thank you from all the “supportive, professional and friendly staff”, having such an lengthy stay makes your wonderful review all the more poignant and gratifying. Thank you for your recommendation, and when the construction ends, the “flexible” staff and great views will still be here for your homecoming… hurry back.
