This is a bit long in the tooth for a Marriott. One can plainly see that it once was a GREAT place. It is now decent. Without renovation, it will not be decent for long.
The staff was friendly, and they got us our room early. We were on the train to NYC within 30 minutes of our arrival at the hotel. Free shuttle is great.
Location is stellar right next to a great mall with REAL restaurants not just Ruby-apple-chilis, etc. I saw a board on the window of the hotel's top floor circular restaurant and was told that it had been closed for a while - indicative of the need for investment.
The rooms were a bit dated but comfortable. The mattress was very comfortable. The sky lights in the lobby were repaired rather than replaced, the outdoor track appeared to have been closed due to lack of upkeep. The gym was nice.The pool was fine but had seen better days. It was nicely heated. Brekafast at Sam's was nice.
Is it a great hotel? No - but it is decent. Is it my first choice in the future? No - but when decent NYC hotels are running $400-700 a night I will opt for this cost effective solution.
However, without a decent amount of investment, it is likely that this hotel will lose what luster it has left in the near future.
