Budget-feeling Marriott property near Times Square and Port Authority. Felt like a 2 star hotel. Bed was comfortable enough, room was larger than that found in many other NYC hotels. Elevator situation was not great; three very small elevators, and with 40 floors, I heard many people had long waits during peak hours (fortunately I was on the second floor so took the stairs). The room had a nice kitchenette. Bathroom wasn’t so clean - shower had lots of dark stains on the bottom. They sold some snacks and drinks in the lobby, but had no water bottles - at 1am was told to walk to a nearby 7/11, which I did but was a mild inconvenience. The bathroom flush button was broken. Housekeeping service is every other day. Had a fine stay but probably wouldn’t recommend.

Amazing location if you are in NYC for a few days as a tourist! Close to everything you want to see! Rooms are small (all are in NYC) but clean! Breakfast is basic hotel breakfast, but a great way to save $$ for more Pizza! Neighborhood is rough to the eyes but my wife and I always felt safe, even at 2 AM returning from the Giants game. You will hear a ton about the elevators. People need to relax and understand there are a ton of people in the city and they should simply leave earlier. One tip for the elevator is to go up, then ride it down or request a higher room. I would encourage you to spend a couple of extra bucks on a “city view” room. The view of the Empire State Building was worth it! The room also came with a nice kitchenette if you want to eat in or simply store things in the fridge and reheat in the microwave later. We were in a room right across from the elevator, but never heard them. It was nice a quiet (until we opened the window). Feel good about your decision to stay here, it is great.
