Nice, pleasant, smaller style hotel. Check-in is located on the ground floor and elevator takes you up one level, to the restaurant, casual seated area, Concierge, Marriott private lounge and elevators to the other floors. Check in was friendly on arrival.
Bedroom was different? with medium brown wood panelling. Some may find oppressive as the room is small, but it was fine and there are guest pictures that show the style, once you've waded through the professional photos that have been put into the guest photos section. It wouldn't be great if you had large suitcases and tons of luggage but fine for business and a short stay. We were a one night trip. It is smaller than many NYC standard rooms, but the price was good for time of year, so i've got no complaints. I'd stay at this hotel again for a good room rate. Room was clean & had coffee maker. Bathroom style modern with a raised bowl above the sink countertop and nicely tiled shower with big glass door rather than a shower curtain.
Bedding was crisp and clean, with a comfortable mattress. Air conditioning noise could bother some, but didn't worry me - I was just glad to have air con as it was very hot outside. I couldn't hear road noise when it wasn't on - not bad for the 9th floor - double glazing must work.
Best feature was trendy roof top bar. Great at 5pm when sun is behind the building, so you can sit outside, enjoy a drink and the view but be sheltered from the direct sunlight. Suspect it's very popular. We went back at 10.30pm and it had a lot more people. Shame it shuts at 11pm on a weeknight - no idea what it is at the weekend. Lovely view of Chrysler Building down the road, I was told this is where they filmed part of the opening shots of "Sex in the City" for that view. Useful point to note: The open roof bar can be hired out for private parties or partially hired for small groups.
