Whenever I am in NYC on business or pleasure I like to stay here. Especially since the remodel, the hotel has a great buzz about it! The staff are great - especially Shelley who always has a smile for early morning check-outs - and I love how they remember who I am and my name! The rooms are fine -... More

Fab hotel. Not really too sure what to expect when you walk in and have to walk past the restaurant to get to reception, but it really was great. Room was spotless, bathroom was huge for a New York hotel. Staff were really really helpful and the location is just fabulous. No fridge, but they let us use a staff... More

Visited NYC for a day/night "on the town". Took an early train into Grand Central and was able to drop off bags early in the a.m. so we didn't have to lug the around all day. Martha Washington is right in the heart of mid town. Close to everything. Had a corner room on the 7th floor (fast elevators). Room... More

We enjoyed a few great cocktails and coffee stout while waiting to go to our Christmas Party. The room was nice, clean and ready when we checked in. Finding Davines products was a nice surprise. Loved the fantastic view from the 12th floor, of the old water towers and The Empire State Building. The evening concierge, Shelley assisted us in... More

Nice place in a good location. Helpful and friendly staff. Room was fine - great bed and bathroom, no bar fridge is a killer though. No hot food for breakfast is very disappointing considering the -5°C weather.

I'd never heard of Marth Washington Hotel, but now it's stuck in my mind. An upscale, probably 4 star hotel. The staff, from front desk, bellman, bar tender to maids were all friendly and very helpful. Check-in was fast and easy. Room on top floor, small but all NY rooms are small. Updated with plenty of plugs, nice modern look,... More

I was booked into the Martha Washington hotel (first time) for two nights. I was very impressed when I arrived. Loved the Chelsea location. The lobby decor was very attractive and it was packed - apparently a happy hour favorite for locals. Check in went smoothly. All was fine until I headed to my room. I got off the elevator... More

This hotel is well situated for almost anything you want to do or see in New York City. There is a very popular Danny Meyer restaurant as you walk into the hotel which is good but extremely noisy. There is a bar/lounge at the approach to the elevators but it is not very inviting and quite dark, unlike the restaurant... More

It seems to be a trend among the boutique hotels I've visited. Almost all of them are nicely appointed, refurbished older hotels. But they all have one thing in common - the pervasive smell of stale smoke masked by overwhelming amounts of plug in air fresheners that hits you the minute you step off of the elevator. It would be... More
