Courtyard by Marriott New York Manhattan/SoHo

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We got a king with sofa bed. The sofa bed was pretty uncomfortable, even for a sofa bed. The room was typical NYC - tight with the sofa bed opened. Otherwise, it was a nice room in a great location. The lobby was nice, with a breakfast/coffee/snack/bar (beer and wine) open late.

Nice location for my visit to nearby NYU and Greenwich village. Staff very helpful with parking and luggage storage. Rooms on small side but given the location it's understandable.

It's not the best hotel. It felt a little dated and wasn't super clean. This was probably the worst courtyard Marriott I've ever stayed at. I would expect more based off the price. There's other comparable priced hotels within the area so I would try one of those instead.

The hotel exceeded our expectations. We choose the area to be closer to my daughter who was also visiting and loved the area. We definitely will stay at this hotel again and now prefer the area over the crowdedness of mid town Manhattan.

The Courtyard New York is close to the best of the downtown area. It has a subway stop nearby and plenty of great restaurants within an easy walk from the hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. A very pleasant stay!

The Courtyard New York is ideally positioned to access the best of the downtown area. Close to subway and a great range of eating places. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet by New York standards.

Pleasant room, exemplary staff, nice location just south of Houston Street, and very good value for the area. I would stay here again.

Location is great, just a short walk to West Village. Views from the high floors are very good as well, full span of the midtown skyline. Otherwise the hotel is fairly ordinary, but perfectly clean and the staff were pleasant and helpful enough. All told a solid choice for a non-pretentious hotel downtown

Very positive experience, nice staff, and good location. We will definitively come back. Convenient with the subway. We only miss not having a real american breakfast at the hotel but there is a restaurant right next door

Weekend couple getaway was very pleasant. Walked to Soho shops, dining, bars, lounges, and clubs. Arrived in NYC via bus (Port Authority). One easy subway ride (the #1 train) landed us at the doorstep of the hotel. Varick St had enough traffic so that cabs were easy to get, also. 14th Floor room was VERY quiet and pleasant (and the elevator was spacious, fast and not "scary" like some elevators are).

one night stay. pristine room. speedy check in. speedy, front desk check out. small, but great quality tv (30 inches or less). I pod dock. very good sound proofing ( or just decent neighbors). my girlfriend got stuck in an elevator. otherwise, a great experience

I was most impressed with the friendly, helpful staff and the cleanliness of the room and the property in general.

The hotel was very clean. Room was very nice.modern up to date new hotel. Location in soho was great for us. I will definitely be staying here again.

I needed a room to crash in after celebrating my birthday out in the city. This hotel was the perfect thing for that and the staff was very kind!

First - the location is amazing. Step outside and walk for hours - SOHO is non-stop. Little Italy, China Town like at mile away - Subway across the street - LOVED the location! I am giving it a 5 because it fit our needs perfectly. A girlfriend and I went on vacation - requested and got 2 double beds, room was clean as can be - AC worked wonderfully. Basically - the people at the desk are also well versed on the area - and were spot on with their recommendations and directions. Starbucks coffee ready for us in the a.m. - fresh as can be. It's not one of those overly crowded places where u bump into people everywhere. It's quaint, clean, very friendly. Rooms were cleaned as they should be - we had a no so good view but weren't there for a view and hardly were in our rooms long enough to enjoy it. I honestly do not have a negative thing to say about this place. Cab from JFK - expect $60-$65bucks (before tip). Great area to be in if you are experiencing NY for the first time as we were -

I really enjoyed my stay! The room was perfectly cleaned each day. It was in great shape as well. The room was small but perfectly adequate for my needs. The staff was excellent! They made my stay really enjoyable and helped me with everything I asked for. I would stay here again in a heart-beat!

Loved the staff, loved the room - very clean! There is some street noise, but what do you expect in a room on a street in NYC? Staff was sooooo helpful!

We stayed here on a quick trip to NYC for some wedding planning. The location is great, unless its rush hour. Then it can become kind of a nightmare if you have to drive because of the traffic going into the Holland Tunnel. However, I would strongly recommend public transportation anyway. You can catch the 1 just around the corner and its only a short walk to catch many of the other trains. You are also within walking distance of Soho which offers lots of cool places to eat and shop. The hotel its self is very nice, still looks new. The rooms are a decent size and there is minimal noise from the street. The huge floor to ceiling windows are also very nice.

Our stay was wonderful. Loved everything about the hotel. Location was perfect as we were visiting NYU. Room was clean and comfortable, staff was helpful and always cheerful. Free coffee/tea in the morning was a nice treat. Loved have the Starbucks in the lobby.

clean, modern,and an exccellent location for a tourist. No restaurant though.
