U.S. News Review

Among recent guests, the consensus seems to be that despite their small size, rooms at The Marcel at Gramercy are comfortable, clean and in a pretty good location for accessing all of New York City's most popular things to do. Sure, you won't find tons of extra space in your accommodations, but you will find touches like blackout curtains, luxury bedding, an alarm clock with an iPod dock and high-speed Wi-Fi access — not to mention bright yellow accents set against a black and white color palette.  Both inside your room and in the hotel's common areas you'll find contemporary decor with modern furnishings and geometric wall art. And nearly all recent visitors rave about the kindness of the hotel employees, noting that their attentiveness is memorable and worth returning for. There's no on-site eatery at The Marcel, but given its prime location on East 24th Street and Third Avenue in the lively Gramercy District, you can find plenty of versatile dining options just outside the hotel's doors — The Marcel's staff can ensure you get a taste by securing local dining reservations.
