    Quick Review: New York Marriott Downtown (NYC area)

    Checkin:Quick and easy, been here before so I know the drill.

    Status/Upgrade: Recognized status and upgraded to the Studio Suite (405sqft/36sqm).

    Location: Downtown along the West Side Highway near the WorldFinancialCenter, a few blocks north of the Battery Park Ritz Carlton. Hotel was built in 1990.

    Parking: Did not check.

    Hotel/Building: Prior to Sept 11th this hotel was going to be upgraded to a JW Marriott (as nearby 3 World Trade Center was also a Marriott). The location has become very busy due to the number of tourist in the area to see the WTC memorial.

    Amenities: Gym.

    Room: The suite is very nice, top floor looking west (toward the water but Battery Park City buildings block much of the view.

    Body Care: Don't recall

    Hotel Staff: Polite and upbeat. This location has become very busy/crowded due to tourist visiting the WTC memorial yet staff still keep their composure and positive attitude.

    Breakfast/Dining/Lounge/Club: The lounge is reasonably spaced with computers for internet access. Staff is very polite and helpful. I find it interesting that the lounge staff has business cards.

    Summary: Nice hotel and staff. The main perks of this hotel is the great lounge and staff. The biggest drawbacks would be that the location is okay (a few blocks walk to the 1/R/4/5/E trains), and the shift in clientele from business oriented to touristy, although tourist are less likely to have status so better upgrades and less crowded lounge.

    There are others too, nearly as close as some you listed, such as a Fairfield Inn on 3rd Ave in Brooklyn and the Teaneck Marriott just a few miles over the George Washington Bridge in NJ. I've stayed at quite a few NYC Fairfields -- they are really really tiny, just barely room for the bed. The Courtyards definitely are better.

    I really like the Teaneck Marriott in some circumstances because there is free parking, a bus to the city right outside the hotel, reasonably sized rooms, a decent concierge lounge and low weekend rates. They even comp breakfast on weekends for elites if you ask nicely so I give them my business, weekends or not, when possible.

    I've added the one in Brooklyn (as Brooklyn is actually part of NYC), and the only NJ location listed is Jersey City which is a PATH ride or ferry ride away. I am not familiar with Teaneck and it may be a great property but as you said it is miles away and I'm not aware of any convenient public transit to the city.

    It is always difficult to decide where to draw the line and I was initially going to make it Manhattan only, then decided to include areas where you can relatively easily make it to Manhattan on Subway/PATH. I appreciate your input and you have a very valid point that if you have a car then Teaneck (and the Meadowlands and other areas) may have other great properties to consider.

    Just a note: the bus to NYC is right outside the hotel door. It's $4.25, I think, to Times Square and takes 15 or 20 minutes.

    Recently stayed at the Carlton. Not a bad property. The lounge is quite busy and has live music on Thursday and Friday. I'm a Platinum Lifetime and I only got upgraded to a deluxe room that had a window facing another window across a 10' space. Couldn't see the sky or the ground. They don't have an executive lounge, so they serve a continental breakfast in a room off the restaurant. I rec'd an email offering free glass of wine with dinner, and an invitation to a manager's reception Monday through Thursday offering wine and cheese.

    When in New York, I stay at the Fairfield Inn Laguardia as it has shuttle service from and to the plane as well as to the nearby subway. The neighborhood is diverse and friendly. The hotel is clean, offers a great breakfast, and has friendly employees.
