We were visiting our daughter who lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The hotel's proximity to the L train was the main reason we chose the Marcel at Gramercy along with the affordability in the NYC market. The rooms were very clean. The continental breakfast was satisfactory. Free wifi in the rooms would have made the stay better.Comment of T. Karen , United States the 2016-04-05
Overall, the Marcel was a very good choice for my short business trip. The room was small, but well equipped. The staff was great.Comment of D. Kenneth , United States the 2016-02-22
"All around perfect modern simplistic boutique hotel!"
This hotel is a modern, boutique hotel with simplistic decor, friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, and it was one of the best stays of my life. My boyfriend and I celebrated 1 year! It was absolutely perfect and so close to so much entertainment in such a nice area. Will be recommending this hotel to many. VERY impressed.
"Great place to stay when visiting NYC!"
The room was comfortable and pleasant. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location to restaurants, church, and transportation is ideal. Our family gathering at the Marcel was most enjoyable!
"Great Hotel near Gramercy"
I stayed there the second time and was not dissapointed. Caroline was very helpful straight from the beginning. The room was clean and the view was great - although third avenue can become very noisy at night. However if you look for a good place near Gramercy then that's your choice!
"Great stay at the Marcel at Gramercy"
This hotel was perfect for my stay in NYC in early November 2017. The location was great as I was able to walk to work. There are many bars and restaurants in the area and are all walking distance from the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and room clean. Hotel staffs were helpful and polite especially Mohamed. No frills, the hotel does exactly what it says on the box! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who needs accommodation in this area.
We checked in on a Saturday for just 1 night. The lobby was chic and modern. We arrived early, and they were able to get us into the room immediately. Milta, was the name of the woman who checked us in I believe. She was very efficient, courteous and informative. The rooms are not large, but are more than ample assuming you are in NY to actually do things (which we were). The room was clean, smelled fresh. The decor was relaxing but added just enough of a pop of color to create an artistic experience. The mini bar pricing was what you would expect in a Manhattan hotel. The selection of munchies and beverages was well thought out. We found the that our room was fairly quiet. There wasn't a lot of annoying hallway noise, nor could we hear the people staying next to us, or above us. There was some ambient noises from outside, which again, would be expected in Manhattan. The hotel provides ear plugs for your sleeping pleasure, which I thought was a nice touch. We turned the TV on only for some background noise as we got dressed. There aren't many TV channels, but enough to find something entertaining if you were really looking. They do offer a breakfast in the morning, which we skipped as we had other plans. Kiara and Caroline helped us at Check out. We had our bags that we needed to store for a few hours. The staff was more than willing to accommodate this. They called Muhammed who was a very nice man, and he happily gave us a ticket and securely stored our bags. The staff here was dressed professionally. They were all well spoken, and all seemed very up beat to be doing their jobs. It was a great experience, and we hope to stay with them again next year when we attend the same yearly event.
