“Cheap & stylish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2008

For New York this is quite a resonably priced hotel-I stay in hotels quite frequently due to business and would give this hotel a 7/10, rooms were clean and had trendy decor. Good location for bars and food bad for shopping as at least 10 blocks away.

Great TV!

The only bad things about the room was obviosly small, odd layout as door opens onto your bed, bathroom okay style didnt fit rest of decor. NO VIEW-ours was of a bricked up alley.

Resonably helpful staff.

Nice stylish budget hotel.

I love this place! The Marcel is extremly clean, the staff are fantastic and our room was huge! The lounge on the tenth floor was great - computers with free internet access (great when you want to google a Restaurant), free coffee and tea, and an amazing roof deck! I booked it through hotels.com and got a deluxe room- we paid $250 a night, but it was definitly well worth it! Also, I called the Hotel and requested a corner room. They only have 1 corner room per floor, so be sure to call early. Parking was across the street for $27 per day. Great location - close to the village (about a $6 cab ride). All in all - I Loved this place and would recommend it to anyone! We stayed in room 607 and it was amazing.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night to celebrate valentines day. We arrived around 730pm and the check in was quick and simple, gave us our key and we were off.

The entrance way had a wide fireplace built in th wall and a doorman. There was a parcking deck right across the street and for 24 hours they charge us 27$ which isnt that bad at all for parking in the city!

We stayed in room 311. It was VERY tiny, but clean and very modern. The bathroom was clean and was pretty decent sized. The bed was comfortable except the fitted sheet wasnt very tight and kept moving when i moved.

Liquor store and convenience store right around the corner.
Cab to Lafayette was only 10$.

Check out was simple and quick as well!!

I would DEF recommend this hotel to couples... its worth the money!!!

I loved this hotel. It was decorated the way I would love to have my place done. It was modern and sleek.. the rooms are small, but it is NYC.
I didn't care much for the shallow bathroom sink, but the bathroom was very well appointed.
All in all: I loved this place and totally will stay there again!

As others have written there were serious problems with the plumbing during mid-late January. Throughout our week stay we had no water, then cold water, then no water again, then the plumbing started to make really loud noises, then no water, ect. Although front desk sent someone to deal with the problem - nothing was solved and we had to live with it.
The room was also very hot and we had to have the window open at all times even though it was below freezing outside throughout our stay.
The staff were polite and helpful and the rooms were clean.
The hotel is in an excellent location for both uptown and downtown in a quiet and safe location.

Stayed here on business end of January. Room are small, shower was cold. Room lay out was odd. Not a fan of the decor. It was clean and the staff were friendly.

Stayed Sunday through Tuesday mid Jan 2008. Got super recently updated room on 4th floor facing Third Avenue. Quick, friendly service at the desk and lobby. Tenth floor lounge never crowded, with free computers and internet access. Internet wireless in room great, although cost is $10/day extra. Shower water was cool two of the days around noon. Front desk didn't know why. Good location for subway and bus travel. Not a good choice if you can afford $500/night but a great choice if you can't.
