This is our 2nd stay at The Marcel, and we will stay again. Our daughter is a student at NYU and happens to live within blocks of this location. The convience of the location is outstanding. Our first stay was earlier this year and we had no issues at all....this stay was again good....but...our room was on the 4th floor facing 3rd Ave. I didn't realize this would be an issue until the first night. I could hear people talking on the street( and yes the window was closed)!!! I'm not sure why hotels in NYC don't use double pane windows on rooms facing busy streets. I understand that it's part of the experience, but I literally could hear people talking as they walked by...by the way, on our first visit we were on the 9th floor facing 24th street. I'll definitely ask for a higher floor and room facing 24th St. the next time we stay here.
The neighborhood is great, good places to eat...we've had dinner and breakfast at the Bluebell Cafe' which is at 3rd and 23rd, drinks and lunch at Fitzgearld's(3rd and 25th)....and if you want to walk a little 5 Napkin Burgers at 3rd and 14th is excellent as well.
Cab from here to Time Square/Broadway is around $10-$11 one way. The subway is on 23rd, a little bit of a walk but not too bad.
Oh, and if you are new to the City....make sure that you go up to the 10th floor balcony and take in the views....great view of the Empire State bulding and Freedom Tower from there.
