Overview

Modern, budget-friendly digs near Gramercy Park with a rooftop lounge

The Look

On a residential street in Gramercy, Hotel Marcel is a playful, conveniently-located crash pad with 136 rooms. The lobby is all 70s whimsy with a massive circular black patent leather couch, shag carpets and a two-sided gas fireplace.

Bed & Bath

Standard rooms are seriously teeny but come with beds dressed in Frette linens and, in some, framed mirrors that enlarge the space. Headboards upholstered in chartreuse or cream leather and vintage-style bedside tables provide an elegant counterpoint to the otherwise youthful decor. And the zebra print throw pillows may not be for everyone. Energy-saving controllers power everything, from the wall-mounted 32-inch LCD TVs to the bedside iPod docks. Bathrooms have fragrant Lather bath products, square Kraus wash basins and glass-encased rain showers (although water pressure leaves something to be desired).

Beyond

This is more of a place to sleep than a place to hang. Aside from the lobby, the only other common space is a casual 10th-floor lounge, which serves free tea and coffee all day and an underwhelming continental breakfast each morning. It adjoins a roof deck with lounge chairs and photo-worthy views of the Empire State Building.

They have a super friendly staff especially those guys Nouri and Nabil. They helped me a lot .They changed my mind by their super friendly service to come back again to New York and stayed at this wonderful hotel.honestly, the receptionists were brilliant and helped me a lot.Keep up the good work!

Breakfast best part. Good selection,nice view and pleasant staff.
Rooms are small. Air conditioner very noisy. TV old and less than average picture. Water pressure in shower weak and sinks are too shallow for faucet.
Can do better for the price.

Good location but room temperature faulty.

Good location but room temperature too cold and couldn’t adjust the temperature to warmer so slept feeling very cold. Found a big jumping bug in my bathroom. Check-in and check-out was quick and efficient.

Very nice place to stay in NYC

I've stayed at the Marcel at Gramercy several times while on business travel and have had consistently positive experiences. Staff members are always helpful (most recently Tina, Caroline, and Scott) and the 10th floor breakfast area includes a rooftop deck with a fantastic view of the Empire State Building. The rooms come in a range of sizes, about what you'd expect in Manhattan. Being a small hotel, the staff gets to know you and the Marcel is a nice place to come back to at the end of the day.
