New York Marriott East Side

Midtown, New York

The hotel

Built in 1924, this Midtown hotel is something of a gem in New York, combining classic 'old Manhattan' style with stylish contemporary décor. It's also the place where Houdini performed a daring escape from a locked box in the pool! Not that you'll want to escape, as it's supremely comfortable with a fantastic range of amenities. Then again, Fifth Avenue is just a stroll away.

We checked in at 9:30am, knowing that they might not have a room available but Swapna at the front desk was happy to accommodate us! We got a room right away and she gave us free WiFi! So nice of her. Then we went to the Hilton Honors desk and Tany hooked us up with some discounts for the city. We have only been here for about 5 minutes and we… Read more

So nice of her. Then we went to the Hilton Honors desk and Tany hooked us up with some discounts for the city. We have only been here for about 5 minutes and we have already had such a warm welcome! Plus the room is big (for Manhattan) and clean. Read less

I stayed here recently and was pleasantly surprised! My room was very large! There was minimal noise from the street below, so sleeping was great! The room was nice, and as a elite member, I had access to the club which offered snacks, beverages, and a decent continental breakfast. I felt safe in this hotel and would happily stay here again.

Really nice people, perfect location - but very tired hotel. Towels are thin, bath amenities are scarce, beds are saggy, no H2O in the rooms (even for elite Bonvoy members), slow elevators and really cold, bland and unwelcoming lobby. All first world problems - I know, but it would seem $300+/night would buy more.

In need of its 10-year facelift. I did not like the room I got in the 10th floor. And I am Marriott Gold. Lots of noise from outside - no noise protection windows. Room quite rundown. Need to look for a new Marriott in town. This used to be my preferred hotel in NYC.

Arrived for a late checkin was told we were upgraded to a very nice room-which was not true. The woman was not pleasant and the room is tiny and the hotel in need of aesthetic upgrades.. not what I remember of this hotel and so far the most unimpressive for us as loyal Marriott customers. The hotel has plenty of available rooms too-so don’t like… Read more

The hotel has plenty of available rooms too-so don’t like to be told an upgrade was given... think this hotel could use new staff and new facelift. Read less
