U.S. News Review

Formerly the King & Grove New York (and the Thirty-Thirty and the Hotel Lola), the Martha Washington is the latest iteration of this Chelsea hotel. The new name isn't that new at all: "Martha Washington" was the name of the original hotel back in 1903, when it only welcomed female guests. Today, the Martha Washington is "exclusively for everyone," inviting all New York City visitors to take advantage of its location at East 29th Street and Madison Avenue, just five blocks from the Empire State Building. Despite its historic name, the Martha Washington features a contemporary ambiance with a yellow-and-purple color palette, furry pillows and slate-tiled bathrooms. Rooms here are definitely on the small side, with standard accommodations measuring 250 square feet (and "Cozy Bedrooms" clocking in at a mere 150 square feet). But each lodging option comes equipped with a flat-screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access and an iPod docking station. The hotel also houses a 24 hour fitness center and a 24-hour business center. Should you feel peckish, the hotel's restaurant, Marta, will seave a variety of pizzas starting in August, 2014. Note: The Martha Washington is currently undergoing renovations, but it is accepting reservations.
