My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Marcel 3 times and each visit has been perfect. The location of the hotel has been great for us since we've always come for a Memory Competition happening around Union Square, a 10 minute walk from the hotel. You can pretty much walk to all of the places you want to be (soho, E. Village, 5th Ave) but If you're not much of a walker, there's a close subway stop or you can easily grab a cab on 3rd Ave. Gramercy is kind of a quiet neighborhood so it's nice to come back to the hotel after a hectic day.
The hotel lobby is relatively small but has a very nice cozy cool feeling with gas fireplaces and nice seating. The check-in staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating.
The first room we ever stayed in was a bit on the smaller side but it was very clean and comfortable, and the view made up for it. The last two times we stayed in a corner room - the room was much bigger, with a view of the empire state building!
The common lounge on the 10th floor also has this great view of the empire state building - my boyfriend was actually interviewed and photographed on this outdoor deck because the backdrop is so quintessentially NY. Definitely worth starting or ending your day up there.
Ps. There's a great little bagel shop on 25th and 3rd - delicious, warm bagels for cheap, great and easy breakfast! The restaurant downstairs from the hotel, Inoteca, was a great place for lunch or a glass of wine before heading out to dinner.
