Courtyard New York Manhattan Midtown East
- What's Included
My three kids, wife and myself spent the week leading up to Christmas at this hotel on 3rd Avenue.The room was relatively large and had a sofa bed in addition to the two queen beds, so we could have fit one more person easily and there was still a fair space.Next to the hotel is a 24hour Duane Reade pharmacy/grocery which had most things that were helpful to our stay, like getting vitamins, toothpaste, bread, juices, cereal, milk and spaghetti o's.The room was always cleaned by the time we returned.The concierge was able to assist in getting reasonably priced tickets to the lion king show and gave advice about the various sights that the kids would like.I asked for and received a microwave with no fuss.The bellman helped us with getting a taxi and ensured that our bags were loaded.We did not utilize the gym nor the dining area.Although the walk to Times Square spans 7 blocks it takes you past Rockefeller Center and the LEGO Store and each day we walked a different street across so that we were able to enjoy more sights that we would probably not have seen had we been staying closer to Times Square.Macy's however was a longer walk, as such we took a taxi to get there and then took our time walking up Broadway or 6th Ave or 7th Avenue to see all the stores leading up to Times Square.
It's hard to find a room in NYC that doesn't break the bank and is not much bigger than a shoe box. We have tried to crack this code for many years and with very little success.So this time we decided to stay away from the midtown maelstrom and venture north to the Upper East Side. We were pleasantly surprised to find a Marriott hotel near Central Park that was reasonably priced.The hotel is in a vibrant residential area, a stones throw from the Mayor's Gracie Mansion and Carl Shurz park along the East River. And a few blocks in the other direction is Central Park. In between, on Second and Third Avenues, are scores of great local restaurants and services.The hotel is quite attractive in a modern way. And the rooms are spacious by NYC standards. It's a high-rise building with expansive views. And the rooms are sound proof so you don't hear any outside noises. Some reviews mention ambulance sirens at the nearby hospital, but we didn't hear a single siren or car noise the three days we stayed there. The maid service was excellent and around the clock, so you could always get assistance or ask a question.You are only a few blocks from the subway and it isn't touristy. We walked around Central Park and to the nearby museums during the day and walked along the riverside walk at night. The neighborhoods are friendly and safe.If you want to get away from the crowds and see the REAL New York City, the Marriott on the Upper East Side is a great home base from which to go exploring.For more travel tips, please check out my popular travel blog.
We spent three nights here and enjoyed our stay. Our room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had a nice view from our window. There are several good restaurants a short walk away and a pharmacy right next door.
Very modern, large rooms by NYC standards. A good jumping off point right by the subway. Breakfast & business center have all the basics covered.And the all important shower pressure was good!Great view from high floor rooms & there is a sundries cubby at the FD for snacks and some basic snacks & water.Would stay here again I think it would prove to be very consistent.
I was so impressed with the Courtyard Midtown. The check in was so smooth, 2 minutes top. The hotel accommodated our early arrival. The room was clean, comfortable and I adored the little details. The alarm clock had a dimmer switch for the display. The bathroom light switch lit up at night so you could easily find it in the dark. The location was centrally located with many restaurants nearby. The Courtyard Midtown is my new favorite NYC hotel!
