Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed for a week and commuted to Staten Island everyday via the ferry. This was very nice because you can park at the Whitehall ferry terminal for $7/night and avoid both the traffic getting into Manhattan and the high parking prices. The Marriott has a great concierge lounge, it's within walking distance to everything downtown, and it was much more quiet than staying in midtown. The attached restaurant, Bill's, had excellent food. Nearby subway stops can get you anywhere you need to go after only a short walk. Great location.

We got a 148 usd rate per night which we found was good value for the money. However, if we had paid full price I think we would have been very disappointed. Pros: Thann Amenities which was nice; flexibility and giving us 2 beds instead of 1; good location downtown; good doormen. Cons: staff fairly disinterested (reception); rooms dated (they need to remodel).

The New York Marriott Downtown is my go to hotel in NY. The staff there is friendly and professional; but Chef Edward Pasch standout an exceptional. Most importnatly, as the Chef, Edward Pasch is excellent at preparing dishes. He takes a great deal of pride in the taste, presentation, and the customer experience. In short, he is everything you want and expect in a Chef (and I have a good sense since my immediate family includes gourmet chets. My (chefs) hat is off to Edward Pasch. He will keep me coming back to this Marriott property.

Excellent location for visiting Lower Manhattan, especially the World Trade Center site. Hotel is right around the corner from the new 9/11 Museum & Memorial. Very convenient to all sights in the financial district, and Statue Of Liberty. Hotel was very clean, and the staff was extremely helpful, and friendly. Wifi worked well in the lobby, but not so much in the rooms on the 36th floor. Bill's Bar & Burger is connected to the hotel with very good food.

Next to the financial district, and the Battery park. Excelent rooms, very spacious. There is a huge bar serving excelent burgers, one of them being awarded top 10 burgers 2013 by the CNN. Walking distance from the Statue of Liberty ferry.

Nice hotel. We loved the location right near WTC Memorial and downtown is our preferred area, particularly at night. It was so nice to walk down by the river at night looking over to Jersey City.

Room was a little dated but comfortable. Nice big bed. A/c packed in on our last night though and it got very hot indeed.

Surprised no free wifi in room - these days that's quite unusual. Does anyone still pay for wifi? Really?

Ate in Bill's Bar & Burger - surprisingly good.

If we could get the same great rate we'd stay again.

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the area around the hotel and our restaurant. I am sorry that your air conditioning unit was not working properly during your stay. I understand how frustrating this must have been for you and your family. I am sorry that our staff was not able to better assist you so you would not have had to incur an uncomfortable night.

I hope we can see you again so we can truly wow you.

I have just returned from a two week stay at the Marriott Downtown, this was a work visit - the office was around 10 minutes walk away, but could take longer due to the amount of construction/disruption going on in the surrounding area, but obviously out of control of the hotel.

In terms of the hotel itself, I had no issues with the room, bed was comfortable, was plenty of storage space, would have preferred free WIFI in the room as is becoming the norm nowadays where I stay. The shower took a while to get up to temperature, but once there was pretty decent. There were only three lifts servicing the floor, so at busy times there could be a wait - and one of the lifts seem to have a mind of it's own, going down, back up before going to the ground level.

In terms of the neighbourhood, it was pretty quiet, outside of the people going to the 9/11 Memorial, but Battery Park City & Tribeca are only a short walk away.

I managed the two week visit without using the subway or using a cab (I did bring my own bike with me) and ride up the west of Manhatten on the cycle path to the Intrepid / around 42nd Street is around a 20 minute ride, George Washington Bridge took around 45-50 minutes (on a Brompton) - so although it might be in a quiet area, it didn't take long to get into the heart of the city and if you don't bring your own bike, use a Citi-Bike - but bring a helmet.

In terms of the Bar & Restaurant, I found the staff at both to be pleasant and they seemed to work between the two, but was hard to find a decent "healthy" meal, but what I did eat was tasty enough, even if it had more calories than I really wanted to consume, I rarely saw the bars overly full, but as a lone traveler I struck up a fair few conversations with staff and guests alike to while away the time.

Unfortunately during my stay, they were doing up the gym, so what was available I did not end up using, hopefully what they are building will be good, not sure if they are going to have a pool - I clicked on "terrible" by mistake in the ratings, there needs to be an "n/a" instead

It's not the best hotel, nor the best Marriott I have stayed at, but that said I had a pretty good experience and would recommend the hotel if you want somewhere a little quieter in the middle of chaos to have as your base

Thank you for your wonderful feedback! It sure looks like you had a good time in NYC! We are located in a quieter part of NYC but as you stated it is easy to get around to the different areas. I am sorry to hear about your experience with the elevators. We are working on this situation. Our fitness center is being remodeled at this time. We look forward to having a new state of the art fitness center open in the near future.
Hope you visit us again!

Aileen
