This is a lovely historic hotel in a location that cannot be beat. It is charming with plenty of atmosphere yet has been updated with modern conveniences. If you want a place that is rich in history and convenient to Broadway theatre, this is a perfect spot.
The room is small but much roomier than those in other big cities, especially in Europe. We did not use the complimentary earplugs for the city noise; we just turned the fan to the "on" position on the thermostat. We had complimentary bottled water and breakfast each day due to my status as a Marriott rewards member. The housekeeper who came for the turn down service was very friendly and helpful, providing me with some extra toiletries.
We enjoyed riding in the elevator, which appears authentic although I'm sure it's been updated. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The main bellman provided us with a wealth of information and went to a lot of trouble to hail us a cab to the airport, carrying our bags a half block. He also told us about a convenient deli with very reasonable prices so we made a few trips there to grab a quick bite.
If you are looking for Miranda (the cat), she eats breakfast at the front desk around 6:30 a.m.
So glad this is part of the Marriott chain - they know how to do it right!
