How to Get There
This was the hotel that I wanted to stay in for our trip to NYC. Its bang in the middle of Times Square so yes the area is very busy but is that not part of what you come to New York for?!
We arrived in a taxi from JFK (thank god its a set fare as we got stuck in traffic) and the porters swiftly took care of our bags (we'd done a lot of shopping in DC!) and we were given directions on how to get to the check in area.
The lifts take a bit of getting used to but once you've understood the system, they are fantastic and move up and down the floors extremely fast - so much so that our ears popped on the way up/down from the 40th floor!
Check in was a breeze and we were off to our room on the 40th floor and the luggage was delivered about 5 minutes later. Wow at the size of the room!!! It was very large and even had a sofa in it for resting your weary feet and for watching the view (we overlooked 8th Avenue/Hudson River) so saw a very spectacular sunset. The bed was so comfy to sleep in and despite the noise outside, I slept like a log! The bathroom isn't massive in comparison but hey you don't spend much time in there! It did feel like there was an explosion going off every time you flushed the toilet though!
Despite having access to the Concierge Lounge, we didn't find the time to visit as we'd a jam packed 48 hours in New York and left on the Monday before it was open for breakfast.
My only grumble about the hotel is the 'resort fee' that is coming into New York. Yes you got the $25 back in credit via charging food & drink to your room but its still annoying that they have this in the first place.
I stay at the Marriott Marquis only because it is close to my office. I prefer the Westin, but it is usually sold out. The Marriott marquis is perfect is you are a tourist and want to stay in Times Square. Location is awesome if you are coming to NYC to go to Broadway shows. I personally would never stay here because Times Square is crowded and gross, but that’s beside the point.
Pros: Location, the Marriott elite lounge is great, large conference area
Cons: Dated, crowded lobby, slow elevators, rooms are grimy, and my last particular stay the water was brown (thankfully after just coming back from India I was used to brushing my teeth with water bottles). When I called to the front desk there was no “sorry” or offer to switch rooms. They did mention that there was water work being done, but my water never ran clear enough for me to feel safe to drink it. Maybe everyone had brown water?
Ultimately, for $500 a night I expect way more, even in NYC.
Loved this hotel! Valet Parking is a Huge amenity. Yes expensive but it is everywhere. Room was huge and although we didn't reserve a times square view we could still see Times Square from the side of the window. Rooms did not have refrigerators or USB power plugs. Beds were comfortable but are full size not queen. Hotel has a couple restaurants - highly recommend the revolving restaurant the View. Pricey but worth it even for a drink. Hotel also has a gift shop, coffee shop with a quick mart to get some basics (chips, water, snack).
This hotel is soooo big and has a huge atrium. too far to walk. elevators annoying. not nice finishes. but the room itself was clean, large and nicely updated. staff and service was good. Right at Times Square. The price of a Tues night was nearly double the regular rate (due to a conference?)
The location is great and if you plan a romantic weekend with your spouse and catch a show at Broadway, this is this the place. it is a walking distance from Broadway, so you can enjoy a romantic walk after the show :-)
