Overview

Guests love the decor and atmosphere
Standard rooms are small

From the moment you step inside The Lexington New York City, you'll likely feel the glitz and romance of a bygone Jazz Age. In fact, glamour permeates this Autograph Collection hotel, as the 18th-floor Centerfield Suite was once home to Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe. But, lucky for you, this hotel was remodeled in the fall of 2013 and the updated, lavish amenities are much more in tune with the 21st century. Sink into your room's comfy bedding or flip through channels on your flat-screen TV. These extras are popular among recent guests, who like The Lexington's aesthetic improvements and the friendliness of the staff. It's The Lexington's location that seems to have guests returning, though: On Lexington Avenue, just two blocks north of Grand Central Terminal, this hotel is in the heart of midtown Manhattan, offering access to the city's top attractions. And because this Autograph Collection hotel belongs to the Marriott group, Marriott Bonvoy members can apply their loyalty to the Lexington and earn or redeem points.

Subtle details reference the hotel's impressive history; in each room, for example, guests will find the story of how Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe lived in one of the penthouse suites during their marriage.

The hotel’s ultimate jazz tribute lies in the subtle room details, in the Do Not Disturb signs that say “Chill Daddy-O,” the bathroom environmental note that references Miles Davis’s "Kinda Blue," and lyrics from Irving Berlin’s “Russian Lullaby” stitched into lampshades, bedspreads, and drapery.
