I surprised my wife for her 30th Birthday with a trip to NYC. I booked the Marmara Manhattan as they were the first hotel / apartment to respond to my query. I spoke to a lady called Lisa Darbasie who was very helpful , I explained we would also have our 8 month old daughter and they arranged private transfers from JFK airport for us both arrival and return. It was a great place as a central hub for our stay, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and had everything we required for our stay , kitchen was well equipped also. My only point is the rooms furniture could be updated but other than that I would 100% recommend this place.
