We stayed here 4th July to 12th July 2014. The hotel is in great location just off the top end of Times Square, so literally 1 minutes walk away from the bright lights and the craziness that is Times Square.
We had the double room so the size was great (we previously have stayed at the W hotel for one night (the rooms are tiny) and then the Marriott Marquis. The size of the double room is the same as the larger rooms at the MM.
The issue I had was that the hotel's reception staff were probably the most unfriendly bunch I have ever encountered; is it too hard to smile and say hello? They really are up themselves, not even "have a good day"
So while the hotel was fine, I don't think we will stay there again.
I would highly recommend a trip to NYC to anyone, forgot the shopping as if that is the only reason you plan to go, then London is just as cheap and if you take into account the airfare and hotel then save yourself a fortune and go to London.
NYC is so much more than a shopping destination; by all means do the tourist bit, we did, the open top bus is a must to start off with,but then get off the beaten tourist trails and wander down town through the village, walk Brooklyn Bridge and go down to Dumbo, at night is great, the subway is easy to use and safe even at night.
Really fell in love with NYC this time around.
