We recently stayed at the New York Marriot East Side for a family event. The location was great. Marriot has a very "cool" app for Rewards members that allows you to check in before you arrive. There is a dedicated line for you to just walk up and get your key! We were upgraded to a larger room on the 15th floor. For a New York hotel it was extremely spacious, but the bathroom was small. As we were only staying one night for a wedding, we really didn't care.
The beds were comfortable which in the end is all that matters.
The hotel faces the historic Waldor Astoria nd is in the heart of mid town only a few blocks from Grand Central Station.
The front desk , bell captain and concierge were all very polite, friendly and helpful
The only reason for a lesser rating is the noise factor. Not from the other rooms...but from the street. Even on the 15th floor we could hear constant traffic noise, taxi horns and the whistle of the valet parking attendent.

My wife and I along with daughter and 2 granddaughters just completed a 6-night stay in this property. It was simply great across the board, including an outstanding "M Club" - probably the best Concierge Lounge (now called M Club) I have ever seen and we travel practically non-stop throughout the year - for leisure, as we are now retired and I am a lifetime elite Marriott member, which clearly is my choice of hotels almost everywhere we travel.

The location of this Marriott is great - only a few blocks from Times Square, Theater District, the best shopping, Central Park and restaurants of everyone's preferences.

Great reception & staff.

Very Highly Recommend!

Went to NYC last night to see America's Got Talent with my wife and kids. Decided to use 40,000 points for a stay at the this Marriott hotel (which is category 8 just in case you didn't know) All was well until this morning. Nothing like a late night walking around the city, crashing in the bed around 12:30AM and then waking up to NO SHOWER! Not kidding, room 1005 does not have a functioning shower. When you pull up on the little knob it will not engage, only sprays water in every different direction from the spigot. You get a little dribble from the shower head. I hope a Marriott manager reads this review and addresses this asap. My next email is going to the corporate office to request my 40,000 points refunded. There is no calling room maintenance at 7AM with 4 people just waking up and wanting nothing more than a shower. Absolutely unacceptable.

Having stayed several times in Times Square when visiting NYC...because I always thought it was more convenient, I opted to stay elsewhere this time. All I will say about the change is this:
If you don't want to feel like a salmon while getting into your hotel, then don't stay in Times Square. The convenience is marginal (you still have to get to the Subway and all attractions) and the mass of humanity makes you favor side doors anyway. For less money and more sidewalk space, avoid Times Square.

The New York Marriott East Side is very comfortable. We were in a corner room with two doubles (though, sharing one bed, they were comfortable for two average-sized people). The room was large. The bathroom was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The coffee in the room is, as always, horrible, but there are two coffee shops less than a block away. The staff was courteous and funny.

This is an old building. There are bubbles in the paint on the ceiling. The access panels rattle. The windows aren't sound-proof, nor are the doors. But...if you remember ear plugs, or are a deep sleeper, then you will likely sleep well.

The location is great. There is Subway access a few short blocks away. Rockefeller Plaza and Fifth Ave are very close. We easily walked to Grand Central, the Empire State Building, and then back to St. Patrick's.

Room Tip: The corner room we had was great for family or friends.

Let me start with a few members of the staff, Paulina (front desk) and Hassan (Bartender), they were nothing short of spectacular. Paulina went out of her way to attend to some of our needs while staying at this Marriott. Our stay was not planned and basically a last minute emergency stay in the city for 5 nights, Hassan who works the bar during the day was a wonderful person who cares about his patrons, he is a world of knowledge when it comes to everything NYC...both Paulina and Hassan should be recognized as outstanding employees at Marriott/East Side. The property itself could not be located in a better location, right on the Lexington Subway line as well as near all the cool places on 3rd and 2nd avenue and of course a few blocks from Rockefeller Square/Times Square. Our next visit in NYC will definitely include a stay at the Marriott East Side.

Room Tip: Stay on the low floors, unless you want to spend a lot of time on the elevators.

Bellman Kenny is outstanding! Overall, staff is excellent. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and well appointed. A small "step" (~1") from bedroom to bathroom was a little annoying. Elevator doors were narrow. Easy walk to Grand Central Terminal. Overall a very nice hotel.
