My personal favorite – It was really much more than I expected. Great service, very conveniently located, great food, and great price. If you are in the neighborhood and looking for a very luxurious stay, no matter how long, you have to stay here! You should see these elevators; a great addition to this already enjoyable stay. Walk outside and see it all; attractions for everybody, tourists and businessmen.
can't beat the location – great hotel, great location. Rooms are cozy and quiet, and as weird as it sounds, the elevators are cool. You'll see what I mean when you're there. But the sushi bar is my favorite
User review by cbowes – I've stayed at the Marquis twice in the last two years and the service has been wonderful. I've found the rooms to be quite comfortable with all the necessary amenities.
A Times Square behemoth. – The Scene
This 50-story hotel takes up an entire city block and has hunkered over Times Square since 1985. It's a glitzy chrome-and-aluminum amusement park complete with a revolving lounge, faux foliage and glass-enclosed elevators that zoom up and down at breakneck speeds. The 37-story-high atrium lobby is in itself a tourist attraction.
The oversized accommodations are all surprisingly quiet and are labeled "The Room that Works" with their large console table with two power outlets, a PC modem jack, a moveable task light and an ergonomic chair. Upstairs rests The View, New York's only revolving rooftop restaurant and lounge. Other restaurant choices include a steakhouse, sushi bar, deli and casual cafe. If you want to ring in the New Year on Times Square, consider reserving for the "Party Within a Party," the hotel's annual gala, complete with champagne, dinner, dancing, entertainment and a laser light show.
Waiting, waiting, still waiting for an elevator – Avoid this hotel at all costs. They have devised an elevator system that is so consistently unavailable, it defies description. Average wait in our week long stay ...15 minutes!! Escaltors were broken during our visit. Trapped, long-suffering guests were openly hostile about the system and we often overcrowded the lone elevator (2000 rooms) when our impatience trumped fear. Go ANYWHERE else!
OK if you are an Okie from Muskogee but... – ...you will be extremely irritated by this mob scene of clueless tourists if you are a somewhat savvy traveler of large metropolitan cities.
The GOOD: views from Times Square view rooms are decent. Bed is fairly comfortable. Staff tries like heck to help. Very good gym with great views.
The BAD: room service food and menu selection, room decor and bathroom.
The UGLY: elevator service is terrible. Those "clueless tourists" can't seem to understand this relatively simple elevator system and THAT causing most of the delays. The check-in is a zoo. And, of course, the ridiculous amount of fanny-packed tourists who can be heard complaining because they think they are staying in a 5 star hotel....LOL.
Funny note: saw several "Apprentice" rejects step on the elevator and look disappointed when nobody acknowledged their minor celebrity. They didn't even merit a stay at Trump Int'l Hotel....?
Not all cracked up to be – The Marriot may have had its hey day years before, but now its look is dated, the renovations do not match the aging decor and architecture, the elevators are a nightmare and the rooms are not all that. While its in the middle of everything, that can be a bad thing as well. Crowds and craziness make the location unbearable. The atrium is tall....ooooooo. Big woop.
Very nice – I have a prejudice against big hotels, but our stay here was very pleasant. The staff was helpful, the room was larger than I expected, and the location is excellent.
The rotating top floor lounge, the "View," does live up to its name. But, drinks are expensive ($12 for a glass of wine).
solid choice – You can't beat the location and rooms are big and clean. Staff was very friendly. For those looking for a hotel in Times Square, I recoomend this hotel without reservation.
The only bad thing I can say about the place is you seem to wait a bit for the elevators although it looks like they're trying to address that problem now with the construction of some new elevators.
What's not to like? – Although pricey, great location, excellent service, exceptionally clean and large rooms. Efficient check-in. Could use more choices for dessert and drinks after show. Every staff member was courteous, helpful, and well informed. Elevators still need some work!
