My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway in the city. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were greeted by the very friendly front desk staff. We are platinum members with Marriott Rewards, and this was instantly acknowledged. We received the normal check in gift, but also an upgraded room and two vouchers for free breakfast each morning. Once check in was complete, we were taken to our room by a bellhop who showed us the features of the room.
The room itself is small, but on par with other rooms I've stayed in in NYC; space is at a premium in this great city so I don't expect my room to be huge. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was modern and clean. We loved the picture over the bed, it was a classic NYC scene and it lit up and made a perfect night light.
All the staff was friendly, greeting us every time we walked past them. Breakfast was good, the prices if you are paying are a little much, but for free it was very good with juice and coffee/tea included and the waiters were very friendly and accommodating.
The history of this hotel is very neat, and Marriott has kept a lot of the historical features. I loved the railings on the staircases. Also, Matilda the cat, though not around much, is very cute and a great touch! The location of this hotel is also amazing for anything you want to do, close to Times Square and Broadway and also close enough to the subway that you can get anywhere quickly. I would very highly recommend this hotel to anyone!!!
