“For last minute, it was a pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Really was not expecting much as this had been a last minute trip during one of the busiest times in the city. But I was pleasantly surprised! I had already heard about the restaurant (very chic and popular with good food) but was happy with the room, great space to spread out, a rarity in this price range in the city! Aside from the restaurant where everyone could not have been more accommodating, the hotel had for the majority great staff members, but a few were dismissive and one at Front Desk was absolutely rude. Thank goodness we were able to call on her Supervisor who amended the situation. Service needs work, but positive experience overall.

Personal tip: maybe the rooms are not as sexy as the Gansevoort across the street, but for the price and great food (even room service!), its definitely a hotel I would repeat.

Stayed February 2015, traveled on business

The bar serves a Black Ink Squid Pizza that is absolutely amazing. The hotel staff are very friendly; but the rooms are minimalist. They are perfectly fine for a stay which does not involve being in the room for much time other than sleeping.
They do not have valet parking; and the parking lot they send you to is $45 per day.
Within 50 feet of the hotel is a parking lot that you can park at for $55 per day. It is a no brainer as the hotel lot is several blocks away.
We would not stay here again; but I would go there for the Pizza.

Room Tip: Higher would be better.

I have stayed at the MW several times for business. The staff is always very professional, responsive, and especially friendly in all aspects of service.
Shelley even started recognizing me after a few stays and would have me half checked in before I made it to the desk. Great food options from the Marta restaurant downstairs too. Rates make this place a steal compared to other local spots.

I stayed at Martha Washington with my family and we had a great time. The rooms were big and very clean, and the hotel was in a good location, with many fun things to do around.Their staff was very helpful and professional, especially a girl named Njomza, who not only helped us with the hotel, but she also helped us find our way around New York. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to stay at in New York, and if you should have any questions, ask Njomza, for she was exceptional! Teuta D.

Location very convenient for Midtown. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, though rooms are a bit small (and I did not stay in the "cozy" room). Lively restaurant, but a bit hard to get a table. Would return here.

The hotel is in a good location with very reasonable rates. I was able to obtain a small room last minute for $200 rate which was quite good. They had friendly staff and clean accommodations. Internet worked great and flat screen TVs on wall are nice. Although there was a shower issue in my room they quickly moved me to a new better room which was good. It is clear they are trying to make improvements and upgrades but average at this point. However, can't beat the price so all is good. They also have a very good and trendy restaurant in the location called Marta. That is a big plus. Need to get into a good hotel program though. Overall, I would recommend.
