“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We have stayed at the Marmara Manhattan multiple times and have always been pleased. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is great for seeing our family, shopping, and public transportation. There are several groceries nearby for extended stay needs and the bagel shop in the next block is great for breakfast. We especially like the roominess of the suites. Dennis and Vanessa on the front desk are exceptional hosts and have always been most helpful with our needs. We will stay there again!!!

Room Tip: The studio's are a little cramped for someone with claustrophobia so we always get a 1 bedroom s...

Stayed in a one bedroom unit on the 8th floor Wed and Thurs over Thanksgiving. The unit was perfect. Great view of the city. My husband cooked our Thanksgiving dinner and we had plenty of space for all our quests. On the down side, Friday morning we woke up to the sound of the construction outside. Being on a higher floor may have been quieter. That however is temporary. We will return !

What more could you ask for, “perfect unit”, “great view”, “space for all”, Oh.. and your husband cooking dinner (good for you). Thank you for the great review, when you come back with all luck that “temporary” sound will be a thing of the past.

The Marmara met all of our expectations. 1 bedroom condo was larger than many NYC apartments. Subway construction is still happening and there is a fair amount of general street noise, so bring earplugs to sleep. Got room on Hotwire so price couldn't be beat. If you are okay with taking subway/bus to get across/down town or have reason to be on upper east side. Do not hesitate to stay here.

We are overjoyed to hear we “met all your expectations” and the “friendly helpful staff” was a large part of the equation, thank you. We want to offer you the same, “do not hesitate” when ready that “larger than many NYC apartments” will be there for your anticipated return.

My wife and I stayed for 9 nights at the Marmara hotel at the end of october 2013. This hotel had been recommended by my son who is a lawyer in New York. It certainly did not disappoint. The location was ideal - away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square in a quieter area of the city, but still within easy walking distance of Central Manhattan.
Our room on the 25th floor had an amazing panoramic view of the city, was extremely spacious with full kitchen facilities, two TV's,huge storage and a balcony.
Dennis and his staff at reception were extremely friendly and helpful and we cannot thank them enough.
We will certainly return in 2014

Room Tip: There is considerable subway work around the hotel so a high floor is quieter

As soon as I walked into the apartment, I felt like being at home. The apartment was exactly as described and photographed on the website (spacious, well equipped and nively furnished). The location is great with 2 subway stations within walking distance (96 or 86st). The staff is very friendly and does its best to accomodate to all needs. This was definetly the right place to stay for my extended stay in NY. My apartment had one bedroom and a livng room with a sofa that could accomodate 2 people and a great balcony, There is nothing like an early coffee from the balcony overlooking 2nd avenue or the east river to start the day with!

Room Tip: Higher floors and try to get a balcony

No matter if its 2 nights or 2 months, nothing could please us more than knowing you “felt like being at home” the moment you arrived to our “spacious well equipped” apartments. Don’t fight the feeling, if it “feels right”… it is. We look forward to seeing you again during your next stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Marmara hotel for the New York City marathon. My husband ran the marathon. This was the first time we stayed on the upper east side, we typically stay in mid-town when traveling to New York. Also, we have stayed in luxurious hotels with higher star ratings so I was a little skeptical. My concerns were quickly squelched when we were greeted by a very friendly staff upon entering the hotel. Without even asking, Dennis (the manager) upgraded us to a 1br/1.5 ba condo! It was really spacious and clean. The unit even had a full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and there was also a nice balcony. We were pleasantly surprised! We were also pleased with the location despite the construction outside the hotel.

Dennis was also very accommodative about allowing a very late check-out since my husband was hoping to come back to the hotel to shower after running the marathon. Dennis and staff went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank them enough! We plan to return to next year!

Every year we are excited to have our NY Marathon runners stay with us, we live vicariously through all of you, and thank you for pointing out how you enjoyed our neighborhood close to Central Park. Tell all of your marathon competitors the same great treatment is in store for them when they book for 2014.
