"4th time, the hotel of choice"
Amazing. What can I say. Every time I have been to the city, except for once, I've stayed with Marriott. However, I keep coming back to this hotel for so many reasons. It is just far out to be as 'real' as you can get in Manhattan, less touristy. It is in a perfect location to get to Wall St, Battery Park (for the statue of liberty/ Staten Island ferry) It is right next to the new Trade Center The service is AMAZING. The staff here are a credit to the company. The rooms are large, which you don't find, for the price you pay here. The rooms are exceptionally equipped, with safe/ tv/ coffee machine, full amenities in the bathroom. The beds are so comfortable. Rooms cleaned so well. We had breakfast here too- this was in Bills restaurant and the menu looked quite limited. However, its american sized portions and we were so full when we left! The hotel has links to the subway, numerous lines so easy to travel in to Manhattan and over in to Brooklyn/ Queens. And a short walk to the PATH station to get to NJ. Will continue to stay here every time I come to NYC!
"Downtown Marriott New York City larger rooms"
I stayed two nights in March. This hotel does not offer room service. (Wahhhh!) I went to bed with no dinner my first night because I was just too tired to traipse back downstairs even for take out, which they offer from the Restaurant, but the next night, I did eat at the burger place in the lobby. I moved up to the Marriott Pulse for my final one night in the Big Apple, and the room was considerably smaller, plus they were remodeling so lots of noise. The bar scene up top had a great view of the Empire State Building however, with couples meeting for drinks etc.
"Good location, well managed property"
As 4 World Trade Center continues to add more - Eataly, Westfield Shopping Center, this hotel has more appeal. Well managed, nice rooms, good location, plus next to the 9/11 museum. Local restaurants across the street, views of NJ/Hudson, all make this a good choice if you need to be in this part of the city.
Stayed here for one night on March 14th, as my flight was canceled due to the snow. This place looks nice and the quality of the room was fine, however, I have the following issues with this place: - The walls are extremely thin - poor soundproofing. - The room above me obviously had a wooden floor, as I could hear someone in high heels walking around constantly. - No room service. - Poor selection of food items in the lounge, and the desserts consisted of rock-hard, stale cookies. - There is an in-hotel restaurant, but that had a long line. - Turned on my TV late in the evening and it said "No signal" on all channels. For the price of the room, I would have expected a much higher quality of experience, with better facilities. I had stayed at the brand new Courtyard just around the corner for the previous two nights, which was a much better experience, and the rate was half the price of this Marriott. I would have preferred to stay at the Courtyard, but they were fully booked for the extra night.
"Loved Our Hotel Apartment"
My husband, our 2 adult sons and I went to NY for our Xmas present to see an exhibition. We stayed at the downtown Marriott, 2 separate rooms. My husband and I had a fabulous corner suite. It was so big I said I felt like it was a NY apartment. It was equipped with a wet bar, including a fridge; 2 televisions and coat closet. The most amazing features were the extra large windows with incredible views of the Hudson. The staff was very pleasant at check-in. There is a restaurant, Bill's Bar & Burger, in the hotel. You can order take-out from there including breakfast, but there is no room service. My husband asked about this and was told that it has been difficult to get employees that want to work room service. Our sons had a room with a view of the Statue of Liberty, room 3403, it was 2 double beds but a bit small.
