Great location

Pros: Location, cleanliness, professionalism of the staff. Abdul, the bellman, was so helpful and kind.
Cons: The heat / thermostat in room did not seem to be responsive and I heard other travelers commenting upon this.
Location: Gramercy Park location, very central but no ick factor.
As other reviewers have noted, very clean and well run hotel. The staff could not have been any nicer.

Hotel Marcel at Gramercy

I booked this reservation a month in advanced for two people. The first room they gave us the closed witdth was 12 inches. That included a ironing board and iron inside as well. The room was so small that there was only a foot and half clear on either side of a twin/ queen bed. So I asked for another room. They gave us another Cracker Jack barely larger that the first except this room was a blind room with no view to outside and felt very cloister phobic. The a/c unit was louder than a washing machine.the iron did not steam and barely heated. Tha sage was broken and not working. Finally after not being able to sleep the second night due to a/c unit I asked for another room and then we got what we were supposed to have. Nevertheless did not receive and disscount on our charges.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your recent stay. Please note that the type of room you booked was the first room type we provided you upon arrival. Unfortunately the hotel was sold out and we did not had any upgraded rooms available. I am glad we were able to upgrade your room on the 3rd day. I do want to apologize for the inconvenience you encounter with the AC I will personally look into this. I do hope to welcome you back. I will guarantee you a 5 stars experience.

Just what I needed!

Pros: Clean, refurbished, incredibly comfortable bed - slept really well. Nice and very helpful staff.
Location: I stayed here because the rate thru Travelocity was incredible. I'm a native New Yorker had business in other parts of the city.
Space in NYC is hard to come by at a reasonable price. I got an incredible rate thru Travelocity. If I were to get this rate again, I would definitely stay here again. The room was very small but I only needed to sleep, change, and shower there. There was a large mirror in the room which served to make it feel larger. It was very clean and up-to-date. There was a challenge with the air conditioner and the engineer was available at 9:00 p.m. (which was impressive). He fixed it quickly. Staff was very friendly and nice. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I slept really well - which is not usual for me. It was perfect for my needs.

Comfortable, quiet, and perfect location.

Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Room a bit tiny but beds very comfortable and that's the thing - right? Really convenient area for us. Away from hustle but still close to our business and entertainment needs.

Comfortable, convenient, and clean

Good location, lots of restaurants, bars, stores, delis, coffee, etc. within walking distance. Not a touristy area but gives you a feel of the real NYC. Only a couple of blocks from the nearest train stop (23 St - 4. 6. N, Q, R) and walking around the neighborhood (Gramercy/Kip's Bay/Flatiron) felt very safe. Room was very clean and comfortable, not enormous, but big by NYC standards. Only complaint was about the shower head in my room (kind of low pressure), but not a big enough deal to tell anyone about until I was leaving - they said they'd send maintenance to fix it, and since everything else during my stay was in great working order, no reason to doubt that they really will check it. Maintenance and housekeeping at the hotel was above average. Overall, the hotel was an outstanding value, and I would definitely stay there again.

A lovely boutique hotel on the East Side.

Pros: The room was nicely furnished with a comfortable bed.
Cons: There were no newspapers available.
Location: The hotel is situated off Third, and a short walk to various neighborhood, with several excellent restaurants nearby.
This hotel was clean, had a nice decor and friendly staff. There was an attractive roof patio and a comfortable room for wireless and coffee was available.
