“Small but quiet and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 5 nights over new year. Room was small, as expected from reading other reviews. But bed was comfy, shower was nice and powerful and room was quiet. Area was brilliant. Loads of bars and restaurants around and was a great base for seeing the city.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

I´ve been to Marcel with my wife for one week at christmas time. The room is big enough for Manhattan standards (a took one of the smallest). A couple, lugagges and after christmas sales shopping could fit well to the room. The staff is great, the hotel is clean, looks really nice (well decorated) is not old, and it is close to metro and citibike station. You cannot walk to midtown spots like Times Square (too far for that).

Pleasant stay. This is our third stay at the Gramercy and will return. Staff very helpful and friendly. Great value for NYC. Our son lives in the area and this is the best hotel we have found for quality and price.

We are frequent travelers to NYC as well as all over the world. I classify this as a boutique hotel with fewer rooms and fewer amenities than a larger chain. The room was comfortable, bright, clean and everything was as pictured in the photos. The staff was helpful and the location was excellent for us. Approximately 2 blocks from Gramercy Park, walking distance to Union Square and NYU/Washington Square. HIghly recommend.

Great location. Great food and bars blocks away. I would stay here again. Rooms are small but you only sleep there. City noise can be an issue but earplugs provided. Guest lounge was very homey feeling and had a great view of the Empire State building!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We had a decent stay at The Marcel for a quick weekend trip. It was very expensive for what you get, but all hotels in the heart of Manhattan were very pricey (more so than normal) that weekend for whatever reason, so relatively speaking it was one of the better priced ones. Every time we are in Manhattan we try to stay in a new area and check it out. I really like the location of this hotel. Not far from the subway, and in an area that has a lot to offer yet isn't very touristy. I loved it that we were within walking distance of the Union Square Greenmarket and Madison Square Park. The hotel is just off 3rd Avenue, which has many bars and restaurants.The hotel itself has sort of modern/boutique decor. The common areas are very nice. One of the best parts was the roof top lounge with good views. The room was comfortable enough, but as other reviewers have said, pretty small. We knew that going in though so we were prepared. It was clean, had a decent shower, a comfortable bed, and importantly, no street noise that we could hear, so we were able to sleep in. We had no problems with the staff, they were very nice and accomodating. We tried to check in early but the room wasn't ready. Since we didn't arrange that prior, it was not a problem, we were just hoping to get lucky. We dropped off our bags and went out exploring. They took our cell phone # and called us as soon as the room was ready. All in all it was a good stay, I would stay again if the price isn't too painful (you never know with Manhattan).

Rooms were unbearably hot and dry with no way to regulate temp. Worst night sleep of my life. Pull out bed for the kids had springs digging in to your back. Very expensive. Would not return to this hotel.
