“Great Way to experience NYC by staying at the Marcel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had a great time at the hotel and were able to experience NYC quite well. Brittany and Jennifer did a great job checking us into our 3 rooms. Because we were only staying for one night, they were able to offer us their best accommodation in 3 king rooms while we only had 1 king room and 2 queen rooms! The view from the 10th floor is spectacular. They also have lounge chairs on the 10th floor. The rooms are not huge considering NYC, but, they are comfortable. We were also able to find street parking there. If you are not able to find parking, you can park at a parking lot 3 doors down for $25 for 24 hours. The parking lot does not have 'in-and-out' privileges. I would recommend this hotel for exploring NYC.

We chanced upon this hotel while browsing and decided to try it as the location seemed great and the rates were excellent. Being regular travelers to NYC and using large well known hotels, as well as boutique hotels, I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! We had the best experience ever, it surpassed our expectations. The staff was courteous, the room very comfortable, the location ideal, the roof top excellent. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for good boutique hotel at excellent value for money in manhattan. We will definitely return.

This place was excellent, no probs at all. booked on hotel tonight very last minute. Staff competent and helpful, Tenzin especially, he helped me carry my luggage to the parking garage down the block. Room was totally clean and although small that's just the way it is in NYC.

This past weekend I opted to plan a getaway for my husband and I. As per the reviews I was a little hesitant and I am beyond HAPPY that I stuck to my choice with the Marcel. The rate and room for a manhattan hotel I would say it was reasonably priced. The room was flawless, the views breathtaking. I didn't want to leave. However we checked out 6/29. The Concierge was amazing (Kathy) helped with romantic activities for my husband and I she even recommended a place where we had our engagement shoot which brought back so many fond memories for us. I look forward to my future stay at this hidden gem!!!!

The only thing that I can say was quirky(not bad, but quirky) was the unusually slow elevator that played the exact same music over and over again. I was sad that on my last ride down I did not get this elevator)
Everything was wonderful, absolutely no complaints!!!

I was spending the weekend in Manhattan and wanted to do so as cheaply as possible. I found a deal on this hotel that I couldn't pass up, and I'm glad I didn't.
I arrived and walked from Penn Station and it was only approximately a 20 minute walk. I also took a cab both to and from the train station and it was less than $10 each way. So getting there was a breeze. I was early, but was able to check in and my room was ready! The front desk was helpful and directed me the subway station and told me which line(s) I'd need for my adventure. There are 2 subway stations (with different lines) just a few blocks away.
I was expecting small, but was shocked when I almost walked into my bed when opening my door. So beware, the rooms are tiny. However, they are very clean. Not a lot of storage but there is a small closet with hangers and safe. There was also a desk and chair in the room. In the bathroom there was a shelf to but all my toiletries. There are some little snacks in the room if needed but are pricey. There's also a minifridge with alcohol that I was afraid to even open, so I don't know if left overs would fit. Even if they would I didn't see a microwave, even in the lounge. The bed was comfortable and had a nice comforter and plenty of pillows. My only complaint about the room would be the shape. There was a teeny tiny "hallway" that lead to a window and an a/c unit. Over there it was cold, but the air had a hard time getting into the room it's self so it stayed stuff. Oh and the towels. The towels were pretty thin and cheap.
The guest lounge on the 10th floor is nice. There is free coffee and tea while it is open and a wine reception on certain nights. They provide free wifi and computer access. There are couches and small tables as well as a roof top patio with a nice view of the empire state building. It was a nice spot to relax after sight seeing.
Like I said the subway is close by, but so is food. there were plenty of different types of food choices within a few blocks to keep everyone happy. There is also a drugstore & small park just a couple of blocks away. I walked from the hotel to the Empire State Building and Times Square. It was a little bit of a hike, but a nice stroll if you wanted to see the city. I came and went from the hotel at night often and felt safe walking alone even then. The one thing that did bother me a little was that you did not need a room key or anything to access the hotel at night.
This hotel is close enough to the action to enjoy it, but far enough away to relax too. Great choice and I am glad I stayed
