We booked the Marcel for a week to celebrate our weddig anniverary. I had contacted the staff in advance and to be fair they did try and give us a good room, but we had to pay for an upgrade to get a reasonable size room.The hotel had a nice feel and is agreeably decorated and it is well placed for a week exploring New York.
Unfortunately the room was on the 10th floor, which initially appeared to be a good thing as this is where the roof terrace and lounge was situated, but at night there was often a lot of noise. The noise was mainly due to people coming to use the free WiFi in the lounge and then when the lounge was closed sitting by the lifts chatting and laughing into the early hours.
I am happy to accept a reasonable amount of noise at night, especially if one chooses to go to New York for a holiday, but what compounded with the above was the extremely noisy and asthmatic air conditioning unit, which made sleep difficult. Even with it turned off we were very aware of the units grumbling along in nearby rooms!
In summary a nice hotel, but not perfect..but where is? BTW Thank you we did enjoy our stay..
