A romantic weekend in Gramercy was not helped by the Marcel.
The "romance package" was a warm bottle of prosecco place on the work desk. The bed was a board of a mattress covered in some sort of protective coating - usually associated with nursing homes. The halls & room had the musty odor of disregard for updates. The style is dated DIY "quirky"; appears far better in the website photos than live. It is sort of IKEA updated by a trip to the hobby shop - zebra fabric cover over a bad overhead light, mustard vinyl stapled over particle board. The bed is awful...not suitable for any adults. The AC/Heater sounded like a broken Vitamix or Abe Vigoda choking on a prune pit ... all night, every night... The connecting door to an adjoining room squeaked and banged with any activity in the neighboring room. Completely ineffective and weirdly designed privacy curtains ... not private, not attractive, bad technology. The saving grace is the neighborhood and the really nice desk staff. They try. So, with lots of great places in the greatest city on the planet...I regret to say, avoid the Marcel until it is better. I'm bummed because I had high hopes.
