Why We Love This Hotel

  • Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio lived here when Monroe was filming “The Seven Year Itch"
  • The hotel’s cocktail bar, the Stayton Room, is named after anti-Prohibition activist William Stayton who helped repeal the 18th Amendment
  • Just three blocks from 5th Avenue, within walking distance of Rockefeller Center, Central Park and Broadway

"Location cannot be beat. Qualifiers for US Open Tennis were staying there and it made the stay mr interesting."

This boutique New York hotel is located in Midtown East near the Empire State Building and the Museum of Modern Art. Throughout the hotel's public spaces and individual rooms is Jazz Age-inspired decor. This hotel went through a $46 million renovation in 2013, which buffed and polished the hotel to a new sheen.

Rooms are decorated with pops of color throughout the room and marble-accented bathrooms. Standard Queen and King rooms are on the smaller side, starting at 150 square feet (this is New York, after all), but upgrading to Deluxe rooms will give you some extra space to stretch out. All rooms include flat-screen Smart TVs with streaming capabilities, plus complimentary Wi-Fi. 

The hotel has a glitzy, sexy history. A Playboy Club previously inhabited a ground floor space, and Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio lived in one of the penthouse suites during their brief marriage. (Guests are just three blocks from the iconic subway grate at 51st and Lexington where Marilyn filmed her iconic scene in "The Seven Year Itch.") Contemporary celebrity guests include Bill Clinton and Jennifer Lopez.

This Marriott Hotel is pet-friendly, so you can stay with your furry friend. Additionally, there is a fitness center on property which is open 24 hours. There's also an on-site Starbucks and a bar, The Stayton Room, which serves small plates and a Prohibition era-inspired craft cocktail menu.

Ask for a room on the lower floor. We were on floor 28 and had to take 2 elevators to get to the room. In addition there is some kind of HVAC air moving stuff up on the roof which was banging all night long for both nights of our stay. I was fine as I had ear plugs, but it was very noisy and a bit of a tight room. Not good for anyone with claustrophobia and an aversion to heights. I am sure that there are other rooms which are much better. The bar is great!

Staff was very friendly and professional. Loved our room. There were several very fine restaurants within walking distance. Enjoyed the complementary drinks at the bar at the end of the day. Securing a cab was a breeze. Highly recommend the Lexington Hotel!

It was our 50th anniversary and the location was perfect. The staff was helpful with subways etc. Breakast too pricey but there were places very close by.

Lively hotel, not meaning noisy, just a pleasant bustle in the lobby. I would definitely stay here again. Smallish rooms but nicely laid out and furnished.

We had to be in NY for a wedding and booked rooms at The Lexington. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel’s ambience, staff and rooms. By booking through Travelzoo, we avoided the daily resort fee and were given a a free drink coupon. The bar is really cozy and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again!
