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 location

The hotel is in need of some updates but is in a great location. When we got there we were told that the two bed room we ordered might not be available. After insisting that we needed two beds they somehow found an available room.

4 day trip with a friend

Hotel was better than I expected for the price. Located in the very heart of manhattan so everything was a short walk away. Just a 5 minute walk from grand central station so you could get to anywhere in New York in a short amount of time. Very clean and staff was very helpful. It was our first time in NY and they gave us good recommendations of where to go. The only thing that it was lacking was a gym / health center, but its a minor gripe since most people are here on vacation anyway. Brian at the front desk was infinitely helpful. Would definitely stay here again if I find myself in New York in the future.

Fair Value for your Money

The Jolly Hotel had helpful staff that made the stay a lot more informative and enjoyable. The location may be the best aspect of this hotel as you are near all the major tourist spots of New York City. If you are looking for a great NYC view from your hotel window, this is probably not the hotel for you but if you're looking for decent value for your money especially during the holiday season, this is the place for you.

Trip spoiler.

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 he/she are sentenced to time in a halfway house. Their room has dingy beige wallpaper, very old furniture (not of the antique kind),a box style TV, a closet with no hangers, twin beds with an old wool blanket at the end like you would find in a shelter, cheap lamps with dangerous sharp edgeds on which one could cut his/her finger when trying to turn the light on, (yes I did ), and a depressing interior view. 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). Someone needs a dictionary and a moral compass.

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.

Weekend getaway

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