Loved it! We stayed at the Marriott East Side in Manhattan over 4th July weekend so were expecting to pay a fortune for the room but were really impressed with the prices from hotel.com for our stay. The hotel was in a fantastic location (no more than 15-20 minutes walk to Times Square, 5th Avenue, Central Park and most major attractions). We were on the 25th floor and had a real city view (Waldorf Astoria just a stone throw away). The staff were great - very friendly and helpful. As soon as we checked in the staff took care of everything and the Porter arrived with our bags within seconds. He was really bubbly and gave us a lot of good advice (all of which turned out to be spot on!) - like where to go for the 4th July fireworks, how to get to places and the best times to be there. The NYC pocket maps at the hotel were a godsend.
The room was for 3 people and there was more than enough room for all of us. It was very clean and obviously refurbished recently as it wasn't as dated as some of the other hotels we'd checked out in Manhattan. There was a huge king-sized bed (which I guess is Superking in the UK) and even the fold-out bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a decent size - it wasn't huge but had a bath and shower (which was great). We also had an ice machine right outside our room which came in useful!
Checking in and out was painless and when it came to arranging a late check-out, there were no issues whatsoever. We had help with booking our seats for our return flight and also checking the weight of our luggage.
I can honestly say I don't have a bad word to say about the hotel.
I'd definitely stay at this hotel again.
