This was my first stay t this hotel and my first return to downtown Manhattan for business in a good number of years. I arrived via cab from LGA. Unless you know your way around Manhattan, are well versed in driving in a large city, and like paying a ton for parking, take cabs and use the subways. Parking for the hotel is $50 per night and is 6 blocks away.
The hotel is located in a building within 31 floors, 184 rooms and two elevators. One elevator is currently being renovated, so if you are planning on coming to this hotel, take note, as you will probably wait longer for a ride. Consider getting a low floor (my Marriot preference) and take the stairs. Most of us can use the exercise anyway.
The rate for my stay was $300/night before taxes. The lobby is set up with two Marriott check-in desks off to the right as you enter from 40th Street and was staffed by friendly knowledgeable Marriott folks. The room was an upgrade for me since all I stay in are Marriott properties whenever possible. My room had a King bed, desk, dresser, couch, coffee table and nightstands on both sides with lamps. The bathroom was spacious too and very clean; typical for the entire room. A wall mounted widescreen TV and remote provided less than stellar viewing, however. About half the channels were clean with the other full of herring bone waves making it difficult to watch.
The exercise room is on the mezzanine (M) level of the hotel along with the business center and 24/7 coffee. The exercise room has two treadmills, an elliptical and a recumbent bike. Also, there is a full rack of dumbbells, stability ball and a bench. Water cooler and towels are provided. TV’s are on the equipment as well as a wall mounted TV with remote. It’s open 24 hours.
The hotel restaurant opens at 7:00 a.m. but if you need to get something earlier, there is Café Charlie next door that is open 24/7. Very nice deli. I had lunch at Devon and Blakely deli on 5th Ave. right around the corner from the hotel on 5th Ave. A nice “Vermont Wrap” sandwich, a bag of low-cal chips and a diet Coke for $11. I had room service as I was working well into the evening on my first night; chicken breast sandwich with roasted veggies and smoke mozzarella on Ciabatta. Nice. The hotel offers room service from the Salmon River restaurant and bar located in the hotel as well as from the café next door. Menus are in the rooms.
I needed a cab the next morning departing the hotel and the front staff was helpful in securing one. It is customary to tip for this assistance
I had just a two night stay here but it was nice. No problems.
