This hotel was smaller than expected. The website makes it appear huge. There was also building work going on at the front of the hotel so it was tricky to spot. The room was lovely. I stayed in a cosy room on my own and it was perfect. I spent all day out and about being a

Hotel is ideally located and mere yards from the subway. Especially so when using the E train from JFK. Room was large enough and very clean, comfy bed and plenty of pillows. Bathroom was a good size and shower had plenty of power to it. Check in was quick and the reception and

Just completed a weekend stay at this hotel. We’ve stayed at a handful of other very good Marriott properties around the city, and, unfortunately, this one was a disappointment. If you’re looking for a clean, well-located, no-frills hotel - this place is fine. But if you like

Ours was per night. Also, the voucher is good only for the lobby bar, not the restaurant. The lobby bar has some food, I think, but not much.

It’s $25 a night apparently...they may waive it under some circumstances. Keep in mind this is in no way a “resort.” Anyway - if you see a very cheap room rate just mentally add the $25 a night to see how the rate really compares.

You should know that this property charges a "destination fee" when you check in. Part of the fee provides you with a $25 coupon for their bar / lounge where you can have a drink or food. So, even if you don't plan on eating at the Max, you will probably end up doing so to use your coupon. The destination fee also includes laundry and Citi bike share. I think it was a bit underhanded and forces you to spend money (use services) at the hotel whether you want to or not. I don't think the coupon included the restaurant.

We booked our holiday in February. We were not told about the Resort Fee. We paid for 3 nights 87 dollars = 25 dollars per night plus taxes. There were other people there who were shocked when they had to pay the same fee, they were not let off. While staying there we checked our credit card and the hotel took 871 dollars without our permission. We complained at reception spoke to the manager he apologised and said it was a computer error. It took us a week to get it back.
