The Marcel at Gramercy

Why We Love It

  • The staff is incredibly friendly and the charming residential location is good for those seeking a quiet, less touristy stay
  • Three blocks east of Madison Square Park and gourmand destinations like Eataly and Shake Shack
  • The tony neighborhood around Gramercy Park -- the city's only private park -- is filled with historic townhomes
  • A chic lobby with fireplace greets guests, and rooms are clean and colorful though a tad snug
  • Around the corner, Third Avenue hosts rows of bars for every taste and budget

"The staff at The Marcel went out of their way to make our experience great. Before we even arrived, they helped arrange a special surprise for my wife's 40th birthday. They were generous and easy to work with. The front desk staff were helpful each day, and a pleasure to talk to. The doorman was exceptional, and came to find us simply to let us know our car to the airport was running 5 minutes late. The fact that he bothered to tell us that shows me great service."

Overview

Stylish stays in New York often take place away from the obvious neighborhoods of Times Square and Midtown. The Marcel at Gramercy tucks into a particularly chic and historic neighborhood that's still only a short distance from tourist draws. 

Gramercy Park, the city's only private park, is four blocks away, surrounded by luxe townhomes and apartment buildings. Also about four blocks away, the prow of the Flatiron Building abuts leafy Madison Square Park, home to Shake Shack and neighbor to Eataly.

The hotel dresses itself up to match the pedigree of the neighborhood, starting with the cozy lobby fireplace. Fashionable furnishings like tufted leather sofas, abstract tapestries, velvet drapes, and zebra-print throw pillows swim along with calming neutral tones in the rooms.

From the press:
  • "The Marcel's prime location in Manhattan's trendy Gramercy district and its proximity to both Midtown and Downtown will keep you out of the room for most of your stay, anyway” -- New York Magazine
  • "Both style and substance in a prime location" -- Fodor’s

For the price, I was totally deceived. Room was extremely small, and rest of the hotel was nothing to write home about.

The rooftop terrace was a great place to relax. The only minor thing I would change is the location. Not overly conveinent location to the subway, and restaurants we wanted to experience were several blocks away. However, the city is huge so you can't expect them to be perfectly central to everything.

Good location right off the 6, great views from the rooftop lounge where we enjoyed a couple nights with some delicious Indian take out from around the corner. Comfortable bed. Great parking rate just up the street.
Other Comments
The room was teeny tiny, smaller than most spare bedrooms at someone's house. I know NY and other big cities have small rooms but it was very small. We knew that going in and opted to go for the low rate so this is an observation not a complaint. The rate on Travelzoo was great and allowed us to have a stylish room in a good area and spend more money on food and fun.

Modern decor, updated but still an old nyc building. Good lounge area with outdoor space with view of Empire state building.

The hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. It is in a great neighborhood with many shops, restaurants, and bars. The 10th floor lounge and roof top were an added bonus.

I could not complete the booking through the travelzoo app- it kept asking for my country, but provided no way for me to input it. I had to go on my computer and go the website.
