Family Reunion and Great Funfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Very nice stay at Marriott East Sidefrom mr_eastwood7
For our 8th anniversary, I cashed in some Rewards points and booked a weekend at the Marriott East Side. First night FREE and second night $199. Parking at the lot 2 blocks away was going to cost $72 for 2 days. I opted for Marriott's valet parking for $76 instead. They probably put it in the same garage 2 blocks away, but I didn't want to tow our luggage back and forth myself. Plus, on check-out it was raining, so it was a HUGE convenience to have the vehicle waiting for us right out front on Lexington. The room was a standard king bed on the 23rd floor, couple doors down from the elevator, with a partial view looking south down Lexington (top of Chrysler also in view). We really liked the room. It was relatively small, but not cramped; cute and cozy! The king bed was comfy; flanked with endtables and lamps. The TV armoire was in a corner near the foot of the bed, well positioned. A soft chair adjacent to the armoire at the foot of the bed, with the window behind it. The good-sized work desk and phone had ample plugs and ports for setting up my laptop. I was able to get on-line for free because I have an 800 number modem dial-up with my company and the Marriott did not charge for outgoing 800 calls. The fridge in the room was stocked with all the expensive drinks and snacks, and there was no room to put any of our own things in there, but I read that they would provide a complimentary mini fridge if asked. We had a small cooler with us anyway. The decent size bathroom was all marble or granite. Very nice. Hair dryer equipped. Iron and board in the sliding mirror door closet. Didn't perceive any elevator noise whatsoever. Street traffic wasn't bad at all, especially 23 floors up. Occasional police or fire truck siren during the night, but no big deal to us. AC in the room was strong, and the shower water pressure was very good. There is a Starbucks station in the lobby, and there are Starbucks up and down Lexington St and throughout midtown. One deli next door, and hundreds all over town on every up/down/cross street. Location is 3 blocks from Rockefeller Center. Metro runs right down Lexington Street, but we walked everywhere, confining our sightseeing to the lower park and between Lexington Street and Times Square. 5 minute walk to Rock Ctr and 10 minute walk to Times Sq and Central Park. The staff we encountered was pleasant and helpful. I would definitely return to the Marriott East Side.
49th St.from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is centrally located in Midtown Manhattan, across from the Hotel Intercontinental & Waldorf Astoria. There are several corner stores, small restaurants, shops, a liquor store, McDonald's on Lexington Ave., close to the hotel. Two subway stations are also nearby - 49th St. or Grand Central Terminal.
My room had no view to speak of from my 4th floor room - just highrises, and it was somewhat dark even midday. At the same time my room was VERY quiet both day and night, making for a good night's rest in the middle of the city.
The only problems I experienced: a TV set that had a mind of it's own; noisy cleaning staff late at night. I don't recommend staying in a room next to the staff cleaning closet!
Overall, I very much enjoyed my stay at the Marriott East Side and would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Great Hotel, great location!from ClaireR
The staff were friendly and so helpful to my whole family. They even managed to get tickets for my parents to see Chicago when it was "sold out". The rooms are a good size and nicely decorated. We had a problem with the blind and window in our room and both were dealt with minutes after we had called reception.
The hotel is very close to all the main sights of the city and walking anywhere never takes very long. Grand central station is only a few blocks away as well.
Overall great value for money and a great place to stay.

Top Local Tips for New York City
Broadway Joe's Steakhouse Don't bother. Over priced, bad service, tables too close together and very noisy. Food was mediocre.
Don't pay too much I highly recommend if you are staying in the city for more than 4 days to get a 7 day Metrocard. It is well worth the money if you plan to cover a lot of the city and surrounding areas on your visit. I think it was $24 last time I was there.
cab guys are the best the drivers are the best tourist guys. they always know the best restaurants
