Good choice for theater-goers
We stayed in the Marriott Marquis Times Square for an extended weekend getaway to see some Broadway shows in January. Pluses: Location, location. It is right in the heart of TS so all the shows, and many restaurants, are just steps from the hotel. Two excellent restaurants to choose from. Room was very large, with a king size bed & sofa - plenty of room for 2 to spread out - rare at this price level. Always like the Marriott shampoo etc. Minuses: Service a little spotty. Asked for extra hangers & they never came. The internet service is not free. The food is quite good in the restaurants, but extremely expensive - breakfast for 2 can run you $80. There is a teensy 1-cup coffeemaker in the room, but I was hoping for a microwave & fridge as well. Room service does not deliver 24 hours -- this is the city that never sleeps, so what's up with that? Tub/shower is fine but nothing special - no soaking tub or jacuzzi like you might get for this price in another city. No spa on the premises. In summary, this is a good, basic place to stay for the location. I'd stay there again especially in adverse weather when you don't want to schlep to the shows.
