The famous architects Mergatroyd and Ogden built the Jolly Hotel Madison Towers in 1923; it is a rare example of "Italianate" style still in existence in Manhattan. In 1991 the largest Italian Hotel chain "Jolly Hotels" purchased it. Recently described by the New York Times as a charming business boutique hotel, it is conveniently located in midtown Manhattan on 38th street between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue. All the rooms offer a unique, relaxing and sophisticated European ambiance together with the latest up to date technology.

One Night in NYC

Hotel great location and good car parking rate on $37.00 per night. Everything else about this place was less than great. Super small room even by NYC standards, poor service from front desk guys who could not be understood, and a TV that was as big as a postage stamp. One night fine but never more than that. Great diner across street call Moonstruck, excellent breakfast and just about anything else you wanted to eat. Overall very sub par.

Fatigued

For the amount charged, the room is uncomfortable and old. AC, lighting, carpeting, bed comfort and amenities, the Jolly needs a makeover.

Awful Hotel Experience

We have traveled for years and this was, by far, the worst hotel stay we have ever experienced. The whole stay was riddled with stressful situations; awful room locations; awful sleeping accommodations; too much noise to sleep (in the room); pushier than usual bell hops; the whole stay was just awful! I would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone, ever.

disappointing

we were not informed of breakfast options, heating came on when we didn't want it to, shower was not fixed when we reported it not to be working very well & the room had not been cleaned properly as items found under one of the beds

I've never seen a room like this in NY(or anywhere).

Imagine a beautifully appointed room with freshly painted walls, coordinating fresh linens and duvet, expansive windows, a flat panel TV, and an attractive bathroom with special toiletries. Now picture a scene from a movie where the character is released from prison and they are sentenced to time in a halfway house before they are free. Their room has dingy marked on beige wallpaper, very old furniture (not of the antique kind), a box style TV, a closet with no hangers, twin beds with old wool blankets on the bed like you would find in a shelter , and cheap lamps whith dangerous sharp edgeds on which one could cut his/her finger when trying to turn the light out (yes I did). The room at The Madison Jolly Tower Hotel was a perfect match to the above description of the halfway house room. And, the only crime was being charged over $300. a night to stay in the room, (which by the way was described when booking as a "Superior" room).

Not so Jolly Hotel

Decor was circa 1965. Old TV. Felt like the carpet had never been cleaned. Mattress was not comfortable.

It was ok, the pictures were misleading.

Room was very small for my taste. Could be more comfy.
