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.

good value

I just stayed one night and the room and bathroom were clean and pleasant. My only complaints are: you have to pay for wi fi (about $10 per computer for 24 hours), there was no access to coffee in the hotel before 6:45 am, and you can't open the window to cool the room down, but have to turn the a/c on (a typical NYC winter heating issue, but better too hot than too cold, I guess!!). But these complaints are minor for the price ($109 for a single before taxes). In a nice part of midtown, with a great diner/coffee shop across the street (Moonstruck) that is open 6am to 1 am.

Family Getaway

We stayed at the hotel and had booked a deluxe room and was very pleased with the cleanliness but some lights were not working and the room was dark as they had placed us in the back, maybe bc we had a pet but still would have preferred a little bit of a view and light. The mattress was a little uncomfortable to sleep on and the front desk staff esp. the African American lady was not being very accommodating and just kept saying we are sold out. I felt she could have been a little courteous about it, but overall it was a great experience otherwise the rest of the staff more than made up for her attitude.

Unbeatable location for the price

Visiting NYC for one night and found this hotel on many web sites. It is centrally located, friendly staff. Rooms are average size for NY, small for other locations. Not new, but well kept. Nice bathroom but did need some repairs. Would stay there again and for the price in NYC it couldn't be beat.

Great location

The outside of the hotel is undergoing renovations, which made it difficult to find. The public areas are very upscale and pleasing. We upgraded from a low-cost room, as the king bed took up most of the room's space. The better room was most satisfactory, with the addition of robes and slippers, better view. A coffee pot would have been greatly appreciated, though. There is a great diner across the street, and a small grocery store a few doors down. And the Whaler Bar is very comfortable. Great location and value.

Jolly Madison for a night

Very nice for my one night. Great location & easy to find, helpful staff, very clean hotel, comfortable bed (but only one pillow on each), nice bathroom with some nice extras (like extra towels). Flight attendants seem to stay here. One drawback was no temperature control in the room. At least I was able to open windows to get some cooler air. Also, TV was dismal - few choices, and the volume needed work. But overall a great hotel for my needs.

Good Place to stay

The Hotel and staff where more than satisfactory. No problems at all. The only things that were of some consiquence was that a coffee pot in the room would have been nice and the air conditioning in the lobby and bar was not really as good as it could have been. The room air conditioning was fine. Rooms are small but typical of NYC Hotels.

Nice NH Hotel near Times Square

I booked a double superior room through Orbtz for USD 180 so my review considers this price as value for money (room price at hotel was USD 350). Jolly Hotel Madison Tower is an NH hotel so if you have stayed in any of them, expect no less from Madison Tower. Location is pretty good, its near Times Square, Grand Central, Empire State among other things. Rooms are spacious and clean, fully equipped except for the 20' CRT TV. You can get continental breakfast in room for 20 USD. The only flaw is no free wifi, nor room or lobby. Internet is charged something like USD 3 for 30min and USD 10 for 24h clock. You pay 3 bucks, you get 30 min clock no matter if you where connected 1 min or the whole time. You cannot use more than one device per connection. It's cheaper and easier to walk two blocks and get a SB coffee and free wifi. (Techys advice: wifi is url proxy filtered, you can bypass it through IP address naming or so).

Weekend getaway

The hotel is worth it just by its central location. The room is also pretty spacious and clean. Very good deal overall.
