After a rough start due to a problem with our reservation (our promised room was not available), we came to love this hotel. The rooms (ours were standard queens) are small, and a little awkwardly shaped, but well appointed, and newly renovated. I had a nice city view, but being on a lower floor at the front of the hotel,... More

Stayed for 4 nights in October. The location is great. We've stayed in this area a couple of times before and always find that the location is perfect for being away from the manic Times Square but also in good distance to lots of sights and subways. Bellboy Stephen was fantastic on our arrival, very friendly and knowledgeable. The room... More

Spent 5 nights in this Hotel and we were left with very mixed feelings about the place. Positives - Room small but clean and comfortable bed (somewhat noisy air con unit in the ceiling of the room, No 1010) but got used to it, otherwise 10th floor room quiet. Location spot-on between Madison Ave & Park Avenues, ideal for the... More

First of all, the hotel is in a great location with plenty of places nearby to get a bite to eat and a couple of cool bars on the street and around the corner. It's also about a minutes walk away from the nearest subway. I stayed here for five nights at the end of September. There was a bit... More

We stayed at the beautiful Martha Washington August-27 to September-01, 2014. Though we were there in the whirlwind of renovations, everyone and everything was wonderful -- we can't wait to see the results of all this work next time we're there! If the staff is that efficient, happy, and courteous in the midst of renovations, they must be top-notch now... More

Freshly renovated and in a great location, my girlfriend and I were very pleased with our three night stay at the Martha Washington. The restaurant is wonderful and the concierge was very helpful. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and are already talking about going back.

Martha Washington was sold to us as The King and Grove. Between booking and arrival it had totally changed character from a boutique hotel to a 200+ room, noisy and poorly serviced hotel. Our New York hotel was our second last stop in a two month trip. We had chosen it specifically as a boutique hotel with character and an... More

Firstly, I am not a reviewer who only comes on tripadvisor to give negative reviews. However, I don't have many good things to say about this hotel, except that it's in a great location and us nicely decorated. The first thing we noticed was the size of the room, which was actually smaller than the room we had on our... More
