Historical Traveller Reviews of New York Marriott Financial Center Hotel

Stayed there 31st - 4 April 2005

from Stevev
My self and family have just got back from this hotel and had 2 rooms with connecting doors. Can't really fault this hotel, we only had standard rooms but still had a view out front of the Hudson from the 28th floor.
The beds are exceptionally comfortable and bathrooms of an excellent standard.
Should you decide to have the breakfast in the hotel restaurant (Roys) then you won't be disappointed. You can either choose set breakfast meals or like us go for the buffet at about $18 a head.
Unlimited coffee, masses amount of hot and cold things to choose from cereal, porridge, croissants to bacon, sausage, potatoes etc.
There is even a couple of chefs on hand to take your orders for additional things like pancakes, waffles, eggs and hash browns, all in the buffet price.

There is a subway station very close (Rector Street) and in fact Courtland Street subway is very close adjacent to the WTC site and Century 21 shop.

If you want to stay downtown you won't be disappointed here.
It does have a fitness room and indoor pool but we didn't see them.

Excellent hotel!

Just stayed at the Marriott Financial this past weekend 2/25/05-2/27/05. Very nice hotel, clean, quiet, nice staff and felt very safe (saw security walking the floors).

We were in a spacious corner room looking over the harbor and battery park.. The best features were the fabulous breakfast buffet with made to order waffles and omelets, swimming pool for the kids, very comfortable beds and friendly staff.

It’s a little bit away from the hustle and bustle – which is good if you want to wind down.

Drove in and it was easy to find and the car was very close by in a monitored lot.

All in all a very nice comfortable hotel. Will definitely stay there again.

Comfortable, Cosy and Great Value

from happytoshare
We stayed at the Marriott for 3 nights in February 2005 and can throughly recommend it!
The weather was absolutely freezing cold, but the rooms were warm, comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean - a real pleasure to come back to - especially after a day spent pounding the snow covered pavements of Manhattan.
We had great views from our 24th & 25th floor rooms of the Empire State Building and the Hudson River - fantastic at night-time!
As first time tourists from the UK, we found the location absolutely ideal - away from the hustle and bustle (and somewhat dodgy hotel rooms) of Midtown, yet only a short direct (no changes) hop on the subway to Times Square and onwards to Central Park. (Rector Street subway line is literally round the corner, and a $2 fare takes you directly to Times Square in less than 10 minutes)
We also found that the sites of Downtown were easily accessible - Wall Street and the NY stock exchange a few minutes away, Battery Park a short stroll, and the new South Ferry port closeby. An absolute must do is Staton Island Ferry ride from South Ferry to Staton Island and back again...you have the most fabulous views of Manhattan - we did it by night and was probably the best memory we have of the visit - and its free!! Great photo opportunities!
We took the special "stay for breakfast" deal booked directly with Marriott hotels website. We paid $169 per room, including breakfast for two - and what a breakfast!! Its a full buffet, with items cooked to order, fresh fruit, fresh bakery items, cereals, juices, coffee...you name, you get it! Fantastic value - we all loved it!
The children loved the pool - small but perfectly formed, and open sensible hours.
Overall we had a fabulous time - just one word of caution, keep inquisitive fingers away from the mini-bar! The chocolate is too much of a temptation for children not to lift out - and it immediately registers with reception for a charge to your account. If lifted out by mistake reception will immediately and courteously reverse the charge - but better not to do it in the first place!
Highly recommended - perfect for a busy family weekend exploring NYC!

A very comfortable stay for New York

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed in bad NYC hotels before, as I think most people have, which is why I appreciated this one so thoroughly. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, extremely spacious for New York. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have slept on. It had a nice down feather bed and down pillows. Everything was clean and looked fresh, not faded. We had nice views of the harbor from our room, and the area felt safe and was quiet-good for sleeping. There was also an indoor pool and sauna, which is rare for NYC. The lobby was clean and pleasantly decorated. If this hotel were in another city, I would rate it above average, but since it is in NYC, I rate it as excellent. I was very happy to have selected this hotel.

Great Weekend Specials

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here the weekend before Christmas and received a wonderful package that included parking and breakfast. Our room was very comfortable. Our breakfast far exceeded our expectations and the parking was very easy. It is simple to get to the hotel by car which is saying a lot for vacationers not used to driving in NYC. We highly recommend staying here.

Handy for Manhatten

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed November 7,8,9, 2004. I've stayed here before in 2002 so I knew how to find it again and what to expect. Rooms are pretty plush and staff swift and attentive. It's certainly handy for the waterfront and Battery Park for statue of liberty. On a good day the view from the Concierge lounge is excellent. Parking is arranged just round the corner and getting forgotten items out of the car is no problem. The cocktail lounge provides excellent meals if you get stuck in a big queue for Roys rest at the rear of the hotel. Roys is first class cuisine and service, no need to step outside the hotel for anything, but Century 21 is about 5 minutes walk away.
Subway at Rector Street about 3 minutes walk away, taxi rank ouside the hotel never seemed to be empty. Pricey I think by UK standards but service standards are soooo much better in NY Arrive Saturday of Sunday you may be able to negociate a weekend rate if your stay extends into the next week. Hard by the WTC site so overview of ground zero from upper floors with the repairs still taking place on adjacent buildings. Good view of the city by night from upper floors as well. Swimming pool on floor 5 a must! One annoying problem, if you book by Internet as a couple with different names, they divide the bill between the two of you with one bill each! Just how daft is that?

Comfortable hotel, not-so-great staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here 11/18-21 and are Marriott Platinum members. Our room wasn't correct when we arrived 10pm (two doubles rather than the king as guaranteed in writing) and then were switched to a lower floor and a room by the elevators. Not sure if this room was smoking (as requested) but my partner smoked anyway since the front desk assured him it was a smoking room despite the lack of ashtrays. The front desk was pretty unfriendly throughout the entire process.

The location is near the subway lines but kinda inconvenient for tourists. For business people in the Wall Street area, however, it's a great location!

The room was nice and clean. We didn't get shampoo one day so I had to use the Hyatt shampoo from my dop kit but no big deal.

Overall, it's a 3-star Marriott. I wouldn't pay more than 3 star prices for it!

Just Great!

from Dailefine
I have stayed at this hotel twice and it was just great! Staff is friendly and helpfull, Subway is just one block away. Wall Street, Chinatown, Battery Park and a nice boardwalk are near the hotel. The rooms are very clean... Need I say more? This is definitely my first choice when I go to New York!

Great Hotel for Location

from FortLaudtraveler
We usually stay in midtown when traveling to NYC. Last time we stayed at the Marquis (highly recommend) However, knowing that Marriott is known for comfort, we decided to give it a shot. Although, this hotel is not on top of the midtown hotspots, it is very very nice. The rooms are big for NYC. Nicely appointed. What a great bed. Bring your significant other for a great weekend in lower manhattan. Great views of the river and Status of Liberty. Subway is nearby for a fast ride uptown.

NICE VIEW,GREAT BED

from A TripAdvisor Member
Good location.The staff is very friendly and helpful.The rooms have a lot of space and the most comfortable bed that i've been in any hotel.

PS: ask them to upgrade your room to a very high floor so u can enjoy the outstanding view of the statue liberty,hudson river and the new york skyline.

Top Local Tips for New York City

New Years Eve We went to New York for New Years Eve ' 06 for the 1st time ever. There's a lot of things we weren't aware of when going & some we were. 1st of all, now I know why New Yorkers don't do it. Although it's one of those things you have to do once in a life time, it was very different from what it looks like on TV. 1st thing to remember (VERY IMPORTANT!)..there are NO BATHROOMS there! Also, make sure to get there early! We got there at 4pm I would recommend you get there at least 2pm. You need to make sure that the last thing you drink or eat is the night before. If you absolutely need to drink something in the morning, make sure to just drink a little bit. Like I said, there aren't any bathrooms at all. What we did, is buy tickets to a Matinee show & make our last bathroom break there . Also, you can't take any folding chairs with you at all. You literally have to stand there for hours & hours. Like I said it's difficult, but I guess it's one of those things you want to say you experience.

Ellis Island Take the ferry to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. Plan several hours.

Our Greeter meeted us at our hotel and personalized a day tour based on the ages and interests of our young sons. She then brought us back to our hotel at the end of the day. It was a great opportunity to see parts of NYC that would probably would have never known about.
