Last week I had a two night stay in New York City. My office is at 3rd Avenue and the Marriott East Side hotel is about a 5 minute walk from there. It was a real easy decision to stay at the hotel.
The Marriott East Side is an older hotel that had a few major issues that I would like to highlight. For $500 a night, you expect a decent room...
First, my room was on the 9th floor but it sounded like I was right on the street. Several times each night my sleep was interrupted with street noise. I am assuming that the windows are older and not that sound proof. So I would tend to want to stay up as high as you can to avoid as much of the street noise as possible.
Second, the water temperature in the shower was very inconsistent, going from hot to cold and then back again frequently. Not something anyone likes.
Third, the hotel room (standard room, two beds) was very small. It was just me on the trip so the size of the room was not an issue. But if my wife was travelling with me, the room would not have been acceptable.
Conclusion....stay at this hotel if it is very convenient to your other travels in New York City (and it is just you alone without a travel partner), stay high up to avoid the street noise and, fingers crossed, the water temperature issue is something that won't repeat.
