We stayed here for one night using Marriott Rewards Points. The hotel is, as stated by others, an oasis in Times Square. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite on the 25th floor (room 2502). The furnishings are very hip and modern. Check-in is right off the street and very convenient. The elevator takes you to the lobby level which is beautifully furnished. There is a bar, a comfortable seating area and the R Lounge, which sits overlooking Times Square. The Lounge also serves as the breakfast area for concierge level guests. Another elevator in the lobby takes you to your room floor. Our upgraded room wasn't ready when we arrived at 3 p.m., so we were given coupons for lunch in the R Lounge. The suite itself was very spacious with 2 bathrooms, a king bed and a separate living area with sofa bed. We had a great view of 7th avenue and all the billboards. Even though you are in Times Square, we never heard any noise. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a large walk-in shower. All the room amenities were great. Right after we arrived, a maid knocked on our door and brought us ice and chocolates. Never had that happen before in any hotel. We had room service after the show at Radio City (the Rockettes are fabulous, don't miss it). The food was okay. We have stayed at several Marriott properties in New York City (Marquis, Courtyard, Hotel 57), but this one is the BEST. There is something to be said for the smaller, boutique style hotel. If you are used to larger, more impersonal hotels, you may not like this one. For our money or points, this is where we will stay again. The staff is friendly
and accommodating. You absolutely cannot beat the location, and the view from the R Lounge is spectacular. The best thing about this hotel is the calm you experience when returning from a hectic environment. Try to get the best rate available and always ask for an upgrade at check-in. Better yet, join Marriott Rewards and stay for points.
