Courtyard New York Manhattan Midtown East
- What's Included
My family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights.We found the room spacious enough for our stay with a large entrance foyer for suitcase storage.Location is excellent with a drugstore next door,subway around the corner and Starbucks across the road.Short walk to restaurants,shops and Fifth Ave.My only complaint about this hotel is that the walls are paper thin.We could hear everything our neighbours were talking about,even what was on their TV.
I have reviewed this hotel favorably in the past and we just stayed there again for a couple of nights around Thanksgiving. I can't recommend it highly enough. For one thing, the location is amazing, in easy walking or subway distance to so many sights, stores, etc. The rooms are very large for Manhattan, the beds are comfy, there is adequate lighting, the decor is what you'd expect from a big corporate hotel, but still very nice. Good water pressure in the bathroom. Our room had electrically-operated shades, which was nice, and they totally block out the light for those of us who like to sleep in pitch dark. Our room had a door to an adjoining room, which always worries us in terms of possible noise, but we did not hear a peep at night, either from the adjoining room or the hallway. Total quiet. There is a 24-hour Duane Reade in the building, and a Starbucks across the street, but the very nice cafe in the hotel itself serves all varieties of Starbucks drinks. Finally, and most importantly, I never fail to be amazed by just how incredibly nice the staff are at this hotel. From the people at the front desk, to the cleaning staff, to the cafe staff, the people who work there are uniformly friendly and helpful. I would like to offer a particular shout-out to the cafe staff, who are just lovely: welcoming, cheerful, a totally delight. Whoever does the hiring and/or training at this hotel is to be commended, because they are certainly getting it right. We will be back!
The hotel is conveniently located a short walk from Grand Central Station and near the subway. It is midtown Manhattan so anything you could want is a block or two away—a Duane Reed (Walgreens) in the building, a Starbucks across the street, Sport Authority a block away, restaurants everywhere. The ubiquitous food carts with bagels, pretzels, and hotdogs, and $1 cups of coffee surround the hotel. However the hotel itself was a disappointment. Check-in and check-out were crazy. The lobby was filled with people, luggage that people were trying to store was piled everywhere, and guests were trying to get cabs or meet vans. It was all rather disorganized and people were complaining about the wait. The elevators were similarly overworked with long waits.While check-in / out is on the ground floor, the main lobby of the hotel is on the 12th floor. It is a nice space and houses a coffee shop that provides a limited breakfast service. That is where the fitness center is located as well. I would not suggest breakfast in the little coffee shop; it is far better to just step outside to get something at much more reasonable prices and with a better selection at any of the neighboring options. I would also stay away from the poorly stocked mini-mart on the ground floor. Soda there is $3.50 while it is $1 just outside the door at a newsstand or at the food carts.The fitness center is serviceable. Marriott seems to do this odd trick of limiting the number of channels available on the video monitors in their fitness centers relative to the televisions in the guest rooms. I am not sure why, but there were only a handful of channels available, primarily sports. There were three treadmills, on one the sound did not work, one had only a couple of channels working, and the third has many more channels and functioning sound. Obviously more attention to the equipment is needed. There are also two elliptical machines and a stationary bike in the room. It is clean and there are towels and a water cooler. So just fine. There are also several private gyms in the neighborhood, so getting a day pass elsewhere is an alternative, as is running up to Central Park. I had a larger corner king room on an upper floor with beautiful views. One could hear traffic and sirens but that is par for the course in NY and these noises were surprisingly muted. However the furnishings were very cheap, the dresser drawers did not open or close properly, and temperature control did not work. I left it set on 80 degrees and the (very loud) fan ran continuously but I don’t think the temperature in the room ever got out of the mid-60s. I had stayed at a Residence Inn the week before that had better quality finishes and I think of that as a step below the Courtyard brand. Throughout my stay the staff was pleasant, they were just overwhelmed by the number of guests. Overall the Courtyard is an ok choice if you can get it at a good price, but I think there are better options.
Just spent 5 nights at the Midtown East Courtyard by Marriott. Booked through Expedia who completely messed up our reservation, splitting our group of 8 in half - 4 at this hotel and 4 at another Marriott Courtyard !!! Staff here couldn't have been more helpful, and found us a room so we could all be in the same location for the week. Great location for a lot of attractions, very clean and spacious room. Cant fault it really, and would definitely stay here again. Just don't use Expedia, they are so inept it's unbelievable !!
I was at a conference in NJ and met my husband in NY for a weekend getaway. The hotel is located close to everything - restaurants, museums, subway, and the rooms were spacious and clean. We did not eat breakfast there - great places nearby, or use gym - we walked everyday to our points of interest. No shuttle to and from the airport, but taxis and uber were readily available.
