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

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.

We got a tiny room with double bed, but the Travelzoo reservation said a Deluxe Queen, 215 sq feet. One day we had no maid services. The bar food was tasteless and had been made way ahead. The $29 breakfast buffet looked and smelled dull, so we ate at the nearby Danish bakery. The live jazz in the lobby on some evenings was excellent. The staff were friendly.

Nice location on the east side midtown. Still had holiday decorations and happy hour. Nice welcoming atmosphere in the lobby with tables for groups or individuals to sit. Rooms average size by nyc standard but well maintained. Check in and check out quick and efficient.

We loved the 1929's charm of the exterior and the interior renovations did much to keep that vibe going but in a fresh way. Can't beat the location for easy access to Times Square and the subways. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The lobby bar, complete with live music in the evening, was perfect for a classy cocktail and some nibbles. A little trouble controlling the temp in the room but otherwise all was in very good working order and very clean and fresh.

Great place to stay. But the bed was really hard. I talked with the front desk and they said all the beds have the same firmness. Everything else was great.

The only other area the hotel could improve on is the noise from the doors closing at night when guest are trying to sleep. They may want to put some noise reducing material around the inside of the door jam, like felt padding, which would greatly reduce the noise so guest could get a better night sleep.

Excellent location, at 48th and Lexington. 3 blocks from 5th Avenue. Hotel is older and could use a little updating, but it was clean and the staff was excellent. I got a great deal through Travelzoo, even waived the “resort fee”.

Had a nice “Ashley Fine Foods” right across the street. Relatively good food when you need “fuel”-sandwiches, paninis, burgers, and hot/cold food bar.
