New York Marriott East Side

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a great time in NYC. Saw the sites and beautiful weather. Love using Orbitz to plan our trips.

Our room was ready earlier than expected and proved to be very quiet. It was furnished nicely and the bathroom was big enough and updated well. The two double beds were very comfortable. Public transportation was very handy (the subway was within one to two blocks, depending upon which direction you wished to go). The hotel cafe was decent and there were good wines available in the bar. The exercise room on the 35th floor was also a hit.

Very friendly staff. Very helpful. Everything I needed they already had or quickly brought up to my room.

I arrived late and the guy in the front desk was in a hurry and he didn't explain nothing. I had to pay $150.00 for check-in and then when I Check out they didn't give me my money back.

Friendly staff and great location. The rooms were nice and cozy. The fitness center was great.

The room was ok, but the infrastructure, especially in the elevators is showing its age. What bothered me most are the nickel and diming on "extras" that are standard at comparable hotels at the same price.

Only problem we had was that we were told at check-in that there would be no charge for internet and yet it showed up on our bill to the tune of $17/day. We objected, they apologized, and dropped the charge. Was supposed to be charged given our booking through Orbitz rather than directly as a Marriott Rewards customer. But, a good place to stay and convenient to Grand Central Station.

Very nice hotel. Exceeded my expectations. Fantastic location.

My hotel experience I had to say was excellent, no complaints until the last hour. As I enter the shower and began to lather myself, the water pressure began to lessen. I exited the shower to contact the main desk to report the problem. To my surprise the employee at the front desk informed me that the water meter or something of the sorts was being replaced and the water would return in 30 minutes. So for 30 minutes I sat with soap lathered all throughout my body until the water returned only to wait, an additional five minutes due to Flint, Michigan water that flowed out of the pipes before I could continue my shower. But the staff was courteous to extend my checkout time.

The staff was amazing!! Everyone, from the front desk clerk to the manager.

Was comfortable. Old construction. Close to everything.

Amazing location, walking distance to major attractions, staff went above and beyond to make this weekend stay memorable! They upgraded our room, and provided us with a bottle of wine and some appetizers to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks so much to Sylvia, she made this happen!

Nice, clean and well located hotel near most attractions in NY, 15 min walk to Times Square, near Empire State Building and Central Park. The staff is friendly and welcoming. I love the bedroom and how clean the rooms are. Will stay here again.

Good Location. Clean. Good staff. Nice size rooms.

Our family really enjoyed our four night stay at the Marriott East Side. The room was clean and bigger than I expected; the hotel staff were great and always very helpful with directions, sight-seeing and travel accommodations.

The hotel is in a really good location,you can reach everything from there.

3 starts max. Everything in the room is old and needs to be replaced: furniture, carpet, wallpaper, bathroom - EVERYTHING. Just disgusting.

The staff were execellant and helpful. Would go back

If you want to be welcomed by warm personable staff then this is the place. We were in NYC for 5 days and loved Marriot East Side. Rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful. There are plenty of dining options both in and around the hotel to satisfy any need. I suggest the organic grocery that is adjacent to the Marriott. It was wonderful. Only negative was a overactive radiator some nights but hey it a radiator. Without a doubt Manhattan's best value. If you are looking for more than they offer you came to the wrong place. It's friggin New York! Why would you spend all your time in the hotel?!? LOL!! I will be back and that's a promise!

Staff was nice. The room was extremely small. They charge $16.99 a day for WiFi, and I had to pay to use the business center. No breakfast, and no room service that I saw. The hotel was nice and clean , but lacks amenities that I can get for free at other properties. I would not stay here again
