We spent 3 nights here at the end of June courtesy of Priceline and couldn't of been happier.
The room was spacious and clean and the ideal place to return to for a quick recharge before heading out into the city.
Our room overlooked the entrance of the 911 memorial and from the 26th floor we had an interesting if a little limited view of the city and site. Staff were ok if a little overwhelmed by the number of Japanese tourists who seemed to be living in the lobby and housekeeping cleared our backlog of packaging on a regular basis.
We cant speak about the catering on site as we ate elsewhere (who goes to a hotel restaurant when you've the world of options outside the door??).
For other tourists I'd make these points.
Yes there is a lot of building going on around the area and you are right at the bottom of Manhattan so getting used to the subway is a must though the nearest station was a replacement bus service at the weekend so a good map with subways on will help you get off at the right spot.
One or two huge landmarks mean that Its also very easy to find your way back to the Marriot, though the US grid system means you'd really have to try hard to get lost anyway.
The Staten Island Ferry(free) is in easy walking distance as is the Water-taxi over to Brooklyn (free at weekends) which is worth the trip if only for the view, though I'd recommend a coffee and 'small' Danish at the Fairway on Brooklyn.
