The hotel is still under construction, it's noisy, messy, the exercise room is not ready, and the elevators were extremely slow (not sure if it's due to the construction work.) The location is good, but the room is extremely small, especially for a one-week long vacationer, not 1 day or 2 days business trips or getaways, it's too small to...

The hotel is undergoing major reconstruction so there is noise, paint fumes, and rude workers controlling the elevators all day long. We had a newly renovated room with lights you can't control and furniture you will trip over. All this while paying top dollar prices for a broom closet experience. Avoid this place!!

It is being refurbished at the moment. It took time to get an elevator at times. The front desk staff are great friendly and great source of local information. It is a Marriott vacation club property so be ready for the sales pitch. The location is amazing walking distance to the Empire State Building. It is also walking distance to...

Marriott Vacation Club just acquired this property. It is a hotel and is in the process of being transformed into a vacation club resort. The rooms are not as spacious as the usual vacation club suites. There is no kitchen nor microwave. But they do have the small fridge. The room, especially the bathrooms are clean. The beddings are of...

Compared to other hotels in New York this hotel provided spacious rooms (we had a Deluxe King Room with Sofabed). It had a very comfortable bed, good storage facilities with a room safe, space to rest and sit, and a lovely bathroom with a walk in shower. It’s well located for exploring Manhattan, being one street away from the Empire...

LOTS OF CONSTRUCTION. I stayed 2 nights in the Downtown Marriott (newer larger rooms but no room service) and one night at Pulse. The rooms at Pulse are smaller and yet the rooftop bar and view made up for it. I would have preferred there had been no construction, which was very loud and slowed the use of the two...

If I had known about the renovation I would have stayed elsewhere. No fitness center. Clearly under construction. That said, professional and friendly staff with coffee downstairs--more than some places have. Good overall location but immediate neighborhood includes an adult store and a burlesque bar.

I came to this hotel for my best friend's birthday and arrived on a Saturday night. Staff was very friendly and showed me to my friend's room with no problems. Although there were renovations going on, and many things were temporarily shifted, there was no loud noise. All the workers were very quiet and discreet. The room I stayed in...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
