Comfortable and convenient

Location is convenient. Service was ok. Lots of food options nearby.
It was relatively comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located, and has a good view of Empire State Building from the open-air balcony. However, there were a lot of additional charges, e.g. for wifi in the room

Great location but small rooms

Convenient location, friendly service staff
From the moment you step into the lobby, there's a cool vibe about the place. The fireplace and seating areas in the lobby were gorgeous and helped the ambiance. The staff were warm and friendly and were always on hand to help throughout our stay. The Superior King room we booked was, unfortunately, really small. There was barely room with our 3 suitcases. We would have expected the room to be slightly bigger. The room was adequately equipped with the usual amenities. Proximity to a main road also meant that sometimes there were cabs honking, police sirens especially on a Fri or Sat. Perhaps this was because our room partially faced the street.

Lovely hotel, but the room are very small.

Great location, bed is very nice.
I would like to come back if it wasn't that expensive, way over price for a small room like that.
Restaurant Tip: Plenty of restaurants around there, close to subway.

Great location, friendly service

All the hotel employees were very friendly and helpful. The lounge on the 10th floor was nice, especially with the outside deck.
The location is great! It was just a short walk to the subway station and even shorter to the bus stop to go cross town. We were able to get anywhere we wanted easily. The service was prompt and friendly. My daughter required ice for a medical condition and a bucket of ice was brought up every time we called. We did have some trouble with the air conditioner and were offered another room without delay. The only con was the lack of free wi-fi. You can use the computers in the lounge free of charge, but it would have been much more convenient to use our own laptops.
Restaurant Tip: The Sunburst Cafe at 206 3rd Ave has free wi-fi and great food!

A few ups and downs this time

Chic place, nice staff, good breakfasts
Booked a king bed but was given a queen although the person ahead of me was upgraded. Mentioned this to a relative who is NYC lawyer and went into full complaint mode. I was given the better room the next day and apparently will get a refund for the first night, but one way and another - did I mention cold water in the first shower? - I never did really relax after my 24 hour journey the way I hoped. I've been to the Marcel 6 or 7 times now and am positive about it on the whole. Breakfasts are still nice. View from L 10 lovely.
Hotel Feature Tip: If suffering insomnia, don't put cranberry juice with vodka. Not the best drink. Tasted awful. And I still tossed and turned. Not the bed's fault, the beds are good.

Good hotel but small room

Nice new decor, modern clean bathroom
Great location, but room is small and air-noisy. Didn't get a good night sleep because of this. We actually paid to upgrade to a double. So the total cost for the room. Not worth what we got. Could have easily stayed at a better hotel for the price we paid.

Lovely hotel in convenient location

Nice rooms, clean and easy walk to everything
Nice hotel that is in a convenient location and easy walk to most of the big stores and tourist must-see photo stops. Only downside is that there is no free wifi in the hotel, although there are two computers with Internet access for use. Great rooftop to look out onto a gorgeous city skyline. Plenty of cheap eats close by and supermarkets/drugstores.

great location

good location, nice rooms and friendly service
great location - really nice neighborhood right in the centre of nyc - close walk to grand central and all the shopping strips around 5th ave but also close to the east village for the great nightlife scene.

Great location, decent price!

Good view on the 10th floor!
We stayed four nights in The Marcel at Gramercy. The location was convenient. The staff were very nice and informative. Although the room was tiny, it was fully equipped with a small refrige, hair dryer, and TV. The only thing we didn't like was the noisy AC. Also, we had to call the front desk to change the refrige because the one in our room didn't work. The hotel didn't provide free WiFi. You either pay for the WiFi or go up to the lounge on the 10th floor to use their desktop computers.
Restaurant Tip: There are some many good restaurants in this neighborhood, but I would like to recommend this restaurant to people who are willing to try different kind of food, esp. fish. Catch De Fish is located at 147 3rd Ave, almost at the corner of 15th Street. The chef Yuth is from Thiland. When we were there, we ordered an appretizer--Grilled New Zealand mussels. For main courses, we ordered marinated chichen cutlet with mixed vegs & spicy chilisause and stuffed fish (crabmeat, sweet pepper with chilean sea bass. There were delicious. They served lobsters from Thursday to Saturday but they were out of lobsters on that day so we reserved a table back to try them next day. The lobsters were very worth a try. Don't miss them if you can.
