“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Stayed in a one bedroom unit on the 8th floor Wed and Thurs over Thanksgiving. The unit was perfect. Great view of the city. My husband cooked our Thanksgiving dinner and we had plenty of space for all our quests. On the down side, Friday morning we woke up to the sound of the construction outside. Being on a higher floor may have been quieter. That however is temporary. We will return !

What more could you ask for, “perfect unit”, “great view”, “space for all”, Oh.. and your husband cooking dinner (good for you). Thank you for the great review, when you come back with all luck that “temporary” sound will be a thing of the past.

The Marmara met all of our expectations. 1 bedroom condo was larger than many NYC apartments. Subway construction is still happening and there is a fair amount of general street noise, so bring earplugs to sleep. Got room on Hotwire so price couldn't be beat. If you are okay with taking subway/bus to get across/down town or have reason to be on upper east side. Do not hesitate to stay here.

We are overjoyed to hear we “met all your expectations” and the “friendly helpful staff” was a large part of the equation, thank you. We want to offer you the same, “do not hesitate” when ready that “larger than many NYC apartments” will be there for your anticipated return.

My wife and I stayed for 9 nights at the Marmara hotel at the end of october 2013. This hotel had been recommended by my son who is a lawyer in New York. It certainly did not disappoint. The location was ideal - away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square in a quieter area of the city, but still within easy walking distance of Central Manhattan.
Our room on the 25th floor had an amazing panoramic view of the city, was extremely spacious with full kitchen facilities, two TV's,huge storage and a balcony.
Dennis and his staff at reception were extremely friendly and helpful and we cannot thank them enough.
We will certainly return in 2014

Room Tip: There is considerable subway work around the hotel so a high floor is quieter

As soon as I walked into the apartment, I felt like being at home. The apartment was exactly as described and photographed on the website (spacious, well equipped and nively furnished). The location is great with 2 subway stations within walking distance (96 or 86st). The staff is very friendly and does its best to accomodate to all needs. This was definetly the right place to stay for my extended stay in NY. My apartment had one bedroom and a livng room with a sofa that could accomodate 2 people and a great balcony, There is nothing like an early coffee from the balcony overlooking 2nd avenue or the east river to start the day with!

Room Tip: Higher floors and try to get a balcony

No matter if its 2 nights or 2 months, nothing could please us more than knowing you “felt like being at home” the moment you arrived to our “spacious well equipped” apartments. Don’t fight the feeling, if it “feels right”… it is. We look forward to seeing you again during your next stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Marmara hotel for the New York City marathon. My husband ran the marathon. This was the first time we stayed on the upper east side, we typically stay in mid-town when traveling to New York. Also, we have stayed in luxurious hotels with higher star ratings so I was a little skeptical. My concerns were quickly squelched when we were greeted by a very friendly staff upon entering the hotel. Without even asking, Dennis (the manager) upgraded us to a 1br/1.5 ba condo! It was really spacious and clean. The unit even had a full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and there was also a nice balcony. We were pleasantly surprised! We were also pleased with the location despite the construction outside the hotel.

Dennis was also very accommodative about allowing a very late check-out since my husband was hoping to come back to the hotel to shower after running the marathon. Dennis and staff went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank them enough! We plan to return to next year!

Every year we are excited to have our NY Marathon runners stay with us, we live vicariously through all of you, and thank you for pointing out how you enjoyed our neighborhood close to Central Park. Tell all of your marathon competitors the same great treatment is in store for them when they book for 2014.

An ex-New Yorker who now lives abroad, I was bringing family members to the States for their first American experience. For the New York leg of our trip, a friend recommended the Hotel Marmara, but I was a little skeptical at first. On the Upper East Side, it seemed too far from the things I wanted to show them and do in NY. On the other hand, public transportation was an easy walk from the hotel door, and the hotel is in a REAL NY NEIGHBORHOOD, so I decided to give it a try, especially when I calculated that we (4 adults) could stay in a very spacious suite for less than the cost of two ordinary rooms in any respectable, but modest midtown hotel. What a find! The hotel far exceeded my friend's enthusiastic recommendation. The staff was smiling and welcoming. They were helpful in every way -- you need directions? Done. You need more coffee in your room? You got it. Want a restaurant recommendation or a pot to cook your own pasta in. You got it. With a smile thrown in.The suite was spacious, airy and bright, and the view (from the 17th floor) a treat at every hour of the day, dusk, night and sunrise. The suite -- with its two bedrooms, large LR, 2 baths, full kitchen and dining room, washer and dryer -- was bigger than the apartment I've lived in for the past 40 years! And after long, tiring days of touring the city, coming back to it really felt like coming home. Sure, there were some scratches on the furniture, and the elevator kept us waiting sometimes -- but none of this has any importance whatsoever when measured against the very cordial atmosphere and the comforts of a real home away from home.

Room Tip: Look for a higher, corner suite. The farther away you are from the street (where they're creatin...

The only disservice to your family members from abroad is, you spoiled them rotten with their first New York experience! It is great to hear they enjoyed our “REAL NY NEIGHBORHOOD” , the views, the shear square footage and most importantly the dedicated staff, it was truly are pleasure. We make one request of your spoiled guest, if they choose that “modest midtown hotel” don’t be too hard on their staff, it won’t be their fault. We rest assured they now know the Marmara is waiting, just a few minutes away on the Upper East Side.
