An annual trip to New York during Memorial Day weekend for us is as sure a way to begin summer as for some people to go to the beach. So, without fail, each year we pack our bags,board a plane, and arrive at Laguardia for a fun filled long weekend.
There is no doubt....we may stay at different hotels throughout the city, but it will ALWAYS be in Manhattan, and it will ALWAYS be a Marriott property.
This year, we chose the Marriott East Side, and there were no regrets.
The property is centrally located and easily reached from the airport (well...as easily as can be in a city that size with the traffic flows experienced each day!). The lobby is impressive as you enter, and the checkin experience was great. The staff was efficient beyond belief, and even though we arrived long before check in was scheduled, a room rapidly became available and within a few minutes we were in our rooms. And a few minutes is all you want to be in the room on your first day when there is so much to see and do.
We had a corner room with 2 double beds. It was spacious, exceptionally fresh & clean, and had a great view of the adjacent Waldorf Astoria. The room was quiet, and we couldn't have asked for better.
We stayed five nights, and housekeeping kept things as they should be. I think they are unsung heroes of the hospitality industry, and I for one appreciate what they do. I make it a point to tip daily, and I wish more customers did so.
Check out was a breeze, and though we were sad to end our visit to New York, this property made the stay wonderful. I certainly hope to be able to find a room when we return for our next visit.
