Nice hotel in a great area.

This hotel was nice, rooms were a little outdated but the bed and linens were perfect! Very clean and comfortable hotel just a few blocks from everything. We were there from Florida and it was 16 degrees but we still managed to walk to all of our destinations ( Time Square, Broadway show, NFL Experience etc..) The street was a little busy but quiet. Would definitely stay there again! We flew into Newark and took the NJ Transit to Penn Station ( highly recommend, this was a very simple and fast trip). We were going to take a cab from Penn to hotel but for some crazy reason decided to walk, with our luggage, to the hotel...2 miles later we arrived at the hotel and it was actually a nice walk. Very pleased with hotel and location.

Great hotel fairly close to Rockefeller center. Personnel friendly especially concierge, housekeeping and doormen. Rooms are moderate in size but very comfortable. They were polite and assisted our every request,

Great Midtown Location

Pros: Very spacious rooms. Clean. Great accessibility to subway and Broadway theaters. Could not have been happier with this location.
Cons: Not the hotel's fault, but check in isn't until 4 pm. We had a red eye and arrived around 9 am, so we had quite a wait until we could get in.
Location: Great location. We could walk to all the Broadway theaters, there is a subway a couple blocks away, MOMA is nearby and lots of great restaurants.
We got a really excellent deal through Travelocity that included both air and hotel. We couldn't have been happier. The hotel was definitely an upgrade for us as we tend to travel a bit more budget-mindedly, which means the hotels can sometimes leave something to be desired. This is a very nice, well-kept hotel (it's a Marriott, so of course, it is well cared for!).

Hustle and flow

Great flight, great hotel, great city. I planned everything in order of location so although lots of walking, i.e. hustling, but there was no zig zagging back and forth. Hotel close to just about everything.

Great Location NYC Hotel

My niece and I really enjoyed our stay at the New York Marriott East Side. The location was great close to Rockerfeller Center, Times Square, Central Park & 5th Ave Shopping. The staff was very friendly & pleasant, and our room was very clean & the bed was really comfortable too. I would definitely stay at the New York Marriott East Side again.

Convenient to everything

Had a great stay at the Marriott East Side. Room was clean, comfortable and staff was very friendly and helpful. Location was great and convenient to everything . We did have problems getting cabs at peak times so instead used Uber or Gett which was wonderful! Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful hotel not too far from Times Square.

Pros: Everything
Location: Trump tower, madison ave, rockefeller, and many other sites were all within walking distance. A lot of cool food places too.
The staff was very amazing and accommodating. We were able to check in really early without a problem and after we checked out they offered to store our bags. The housekeeping was also amazing, always willing to give us extra towels or toiletries. The only thing i wish was included was wifi and breakfast but it was easy to do without. Free wifi in the lobby worked perfectly fine and there were so many quick and easy breakfast places within walking distance--there was even a bakery in the restaurant. The hotel was about 2 blocks down from the nearest subway stop but it was really easy to access and get to. It wasn't too far from Times Square and was in walking distance of many other cool sites. Highly recommend this hotel.
