“Comfortable apartment hotel in Manhattan”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

The location of Marmara Manhattan is great, it is away of the major hustle and bustle of Manhattan but still close enough to walk to Central Park, the Museums and handy shops and restaurants. It's also quite close to a convenient bus route as well as about 5 to 10 minutes away from the Subway.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the Studio apartment we stayed in was spacious and had everything we needed for a great stay.

Room Tip: I would probably ask for a room that does not face the road if possible. Not the hotel's fault...

Many enjoy our Upper East Side location for your exact reason; to be out of the hustle and bustle. We are so glad you were able to enjoy that aspect. However comfort, as you mentioned several times, delights us to no end as that is our ultimate goal. Hope you are able to enjoy another comfortable nights rest with us again soon.

We stayed here for 5 days leading up to the New York City Triathlon, which I was participating in. We chose the Marmara for its handy uptown location, as well as the fact that traveling with a child and lots of sports gear (4 bikes!), we needed lots of space, plus a full kitchen.

PROS:
--The building is safe and nicely located near a grocery store, drugstore and restaurants.
--Doorman there to help you get out and on your way.
--Friendly, diligent staff and cleaning crew
--Lots of space with a balcony, one and a half baths for a standard one-bedroom unit, full size kitchen
--Solid AC with individual room controls
--Spacious combined living/dining room with comfy couch, big enough to sleep comfortably on (TIP: it feels more comfortable sleeping on it as a couch than as a pull-out bed)

CONS:
--Road construction is loud, starts at 7AM and can be heard in the apartment (we were on the 5th floor). I guess the plus of this is, it'll motivate you to get outside earlier!
--Some aspects of the suite looked a bit run down--I couldn't start the oven, some wallpaper was peeling a bit, and a couple floor tiles in the bathroom were cracked.

The cons were minor to the pluses--we loved the bright, cheery vibe of our suite and would stay here again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: A higher floor may buffer you from some of the construction noise and provide for a better view.

We appreciate the concise style of your review. As you say, if you are looking for sheer square footage and “friendly, diligent staff” the Marmara Manhattan is the “PROS” for you. Any and all growth comes from constructive “CONS”, thank you. We love your “bright and cheery vibe” and hope to see you again.

We stayed at the Marmara for three nights in July with our 6yo daughter. It is conveniently located, a few blocks from the subway, Central Park and anything else you could need. We stayed on the 14th floor. Room was large, clean, with a comfy bed, great views and 1.5 baths. HUGE for NYC. Some little updates needed but nothing noteworthy.The front desk staff was exceptional - friendly and helpful - and so was the doorman. This was our first stay but won't be our last.

We stayed as a family with two teenagers in July. The hotel staff were very friendly, Dennis lived up to his previous reviews and the hotel itself was a solid 4 star. The apartment was clean, beds were comfortable, linens were lovely and the lounge area and kitchen good. Bathrooms were good too. I appreciated the washing machine and hanging area, cupbard in the hall way. My youngest really liked the view of downtown Manhattan. You're never high up enough in NY to avoid traffic noise, yes there are sirens at 2am but the Marmara's lovely pillows block a lot of it out. Some fixtures weren't perfect, the towel rail kept coming off and yes it's dark in the corridors but overall a good place to visit NY. Subway for 96th street nearby and in 2 years you'll have one at the hotel entrance.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view if that's what you want, we were a corner suite on the 23rd floor and th...

Traveling with two teenagers one would most likely look for a “Good apartment” with room to spread out, keep up with the laundry, cook a little and keep them occupied with stunning views of Manhattan’s skyline; so glad we could fit the bill! Thank you very much for your kind words.

This is probably the best experience I've ever had in traveling. All staff members made us feel welcomed and all went out of their way to accommodate any request we had from dining to shopping to extra hangers. Currently some construction in the area, but that's just progress. No complaints with the room or its cleanliness. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Absolutely as comfortable as home. The room was spacious and the clean ups were fast and done right. Dennis Young front office manager makes you feel like a family member who he has not seen in a while. He goes out of his way to make all his visitors comfortable and happy. The door men were so friendly and helpful as well as the counter staff. Anything we needed was sent to us quickly. (I think we drink more coffee than most) The coffee was so good to wake up to in the mornings. We hated to leave. The view was like a movie and even the other visitors spoke and gave the hellos. It is not brand new but neither is my home. A nice park for children in walking distance. You must eat at Nick's across the street. We did love their family style and food and service was excellent.

We never ever tired of hearing “home away from home” yet “absolutely as comfortable as home”. What a pleasure for us to have you as our “family member”. You don’t have to wait for the reunion. We’ll strive to make you “comfortable and happy” at all times.

We were in town visiting family on the Upper East Side and booked the Marmara without knowing what to expect. We entered a colorful lobby with marble floors and an unusual garden-like decor. The desk staff was charming and helpful and upgraded our room. We took the elevator with its glass chandelier to the 12th floor, and via the dimly-lit hallway entered an expansive suite with two bedrooms, 2 baths, a livingroom, kitchen and dining area. A balcony overlooked the city. There is construction going on in the area, but as it was the weekend it was no trouble. In fact, the room was quiet, and the sense of space was glorious! The beds were comfortable, with spotless white coverlets, and the bathrooms were large and clean. We were only there for one night, but it was a night to remember. I have the best feeling about this hotel. I have stayed in fancier places in the city, but none so spacious and none so friendly.
