A Sanctuary in the City

Located on the Eastern side of Midtown Manhattan this was the Big Apple’s flagship W hotel. The property was designed to emphasise a tranquil atmosphere inspired by nature, earth, wind fire and water.
The Heartbeat restaurant and Living Room lounge provide a cosy atmosphere and if you are looking for a New York cocktail experience then look no further than Whiskey Blue.  The hotel is just a few blocks from Grand Central Station and within easy walking distance to all that Times Square, Fifth Avenue and Broadway has to offer.

The best customer service ever!

It was a real pleasure staying at the Maxwell Hotel. I had made a last minute booking after having to change my schedule. On arrival I was greeted by one of the most friendliest receptionist's I have ever encountered in the thousands of hotels that I've stayed in (plenty of these in the city!). Yeshaira was incredibly helpful, understood the purpose of my visit and went above and beyond to make everything more than comfortable for my stay. During my stay in the one bedroom suite, I was floored by how friendly and polite everyone was, more so than in your average hotel. And the service came from a heartfelt place not a fake one as I have seen in mamy other places I have stayed. The food was impeccable, as a foodie and an owner of a food business in the UK, this is a huge deal for me. More so, the in room dining team and chefs were fantastic, especially Ronnie who took my call every afternoon when I needed to order food whilst working from the room. I was so moved, I had to send him a note to say thank you - which he graciously and gratefully appreciated. I had not heard of the Maxwell prior to this booking which my secretary handled online, I am always weary of staying in places i don't know, the Maxwell is a place I won't forget. To Kevin, Yesharia, Ronnie and all the staff that made my stay so comfortable - a massive thank you!

Affordable Marriott Property in Midtown Manhattan

Cleveland, Ohio

Great location directly across from the Waldorf Astoria at a very reasonable price. The resort fee is offset by the $30 food vouchers presented at check-in. The staff is friendlyand goes out of its way to please. Ivana, in housekeeping, is especially attentive when servicing the modern rooms. This will definitely be my go to hotel when on business in NYC!
