If you want to be in the heart of the city, this hotel is for you. You are in walking distance to everything such as Fifth Avenue, Central Park, 42nd Street and much more. The R Lounge bar looks out on Times Square and the lobby has a boutique feel. However, I was disappointed that the art deco scheme didn't carry over to the rooms. Our bed squeaked and we could hear noise on the streets all times of the night even though we were on the 24th floor. There was only one sink in the bathroom and the walls are thin. Room service was the worse ever. We ordered a pizza and fries which tasted like they were the frozen kind.
I gave this hotel an average score because I've stayed at other Marriott properties in Manhattan I like better. The Marquis is two blocks away, the rooms are nicer and the corner rooms are huge. I just don't particularly care for the massive size of the hotel. I've stayed at the Carlton near Madison Square Park which is part of the Autograph Collection. The location is close to Herald Square and Chelsea but the rooms are old and in need of renovation. I've also stayed at the Renaissance 57 on Lexington which is a great location if you want to be closer to the Upper East Side but the rooms are small.
If you enjoy the outdoors I suggest you take a bike ride through Central Park and around New York's Green Way. We also took a Double Decker bus tour and a cruise around the Statue of Liberty. I recommend the Village Vanguard for jazz enthusiasts. For a scenic view of the Hudson River and the New York skyline, watch the sunset at the Press Lounge at Ink 48 hotel on 11th Avenue.
