Stayed here for a work trip, otherwise I probably would have stayed someplace else. The rooms are small and the beds are tiny. The walls are also paper thin, so you can hear everything in the next room. I'm told that the rooms with the Statue of Liberty views are much better, so you may want to give those a try.
"This is an older Marriott and you see and feel it"
In general it is a Marriott and has all the expected services. But it is just an older one and you can see and feel it. The rooms a slight mold smell and you can't open the window. The rooms a also a bit outdated and you can see that they are used since a long time. Besides that the hotel service was good.
"Friendly service and comfortable room"
I stayed at NY Marriott Downtown during my business trip to NY 6 months ago. It was still winter and the temperature was just above 0 degree Celsius. After I checked in, I decided to order room service for dinner as it was too cold to go outside. I ordered a Caesar salad and a burger with fries. The burger was ok but the fries were cold! The hotel is located near the World Trade Center Memorial, but it is relatively close to a subway station. The staff was friendly and the room was reasonably large. It would be an ideal hotel for business traveler.
"Conference visit - difficult location"
I spent a day at this hotel at a business conference. The meeting room was overcrowded but I blame the conference organizer for not reservations rooms large enough for the attendees. The lunch was 1 floor below the level the conference was held on which was a little awkward. The lunch was a sit down affair with no choices, the food was delicious. The worst part of the experience was the challenging location on West Street. This is a very busy highway and there is no driveway in the front of the hotel. The taxi driver had to make a detour to arrive along the side of the hotel since we were coming from midtown and the hotel is located on the northbound side of the highway.
We stayed here for a Tribeca wedding in August. The location if wonderful, steps away from the World Trade Cwenter and memorial, Battery Park, gorgeous views of the Statue of Liberty and typical Marriott quality and service.
