    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott New York Manhattan/Fifth Avenue New York City

    Amazing location, stylish (but small) room

    from

    Advertised as 'Steps off Fifth Avenue' and it really was. Nice lobby and helpful staff. Rooms were lovely with great decor and big tv with lots of channels. Not a good view as it is sandwiched between two buildings, so doesnt really matter which floor you stay on. Bathroom is of a really nice size and had a good quality power shower. Also great range of toiletries, not just the usual drab stuff. The double beds were a bit small though and with four in the room plus a lot of furniture it was hard to move around. Fridge and safe were a nice touch and there was a good desk and easychair too. Best things about the hotel are look and location. So much to see within walking distance and plenty of shops, restaurants too. If you're not going to spend too much time inside, then this is great value.

    Perfect location, lovely hotel

    from

    Having been to NY 3 times before, and reading the reviews on this website regarding the Clarion, I have to say that I was very apprehensive about staying in this hotel!

    But thank fully, it was lovely! The staff were really nice and very helpful. The rooms were ok. There were 3 of us staying in a double deluxe room and we were fine. They are average size for a NY Hotel.

    The location is the biggest selling point for this hotel. I have stayed in the Bedford (Tiny & depressive) and the Holiday Inn Midtown (Very nice). The Clarion has the best location.

    I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel, or staying here again in the future! OOOhh one word of warning! Our room was next to the Ice Machine! - Who has ice at 5.30 am every morning?? That was the only noise we heard!

    I will definitely be returning to New York!

    Would Stay here Again!

    from

    We stayed here this past weekend and were pleased with our room and service. The rooms were small and we did have a problem with the air conditioning but this was corrected the next day. The staff were very friendly and helpful to us...even helping us with a cab as we were leaving in the rain. A great location!! I recommend this hotel!

    A great hotel

    from

    I recently spent 3 nights in the Clarion Fifth Avenue and found it to be a great hotel. The best thing about it is the location, it is within walking distance of all the major attractions. The staff were very helpful, I could not fault them. The room may have been on the small side but in a city like NYC, we didn't spend much time in the room. If it's a nice clean hotel you want in the best location on offer, the Clarion is the best choice. If I get another opportunity to do my Christmas shopping in NYC, I will definitely stay in the Clarion Fifth Avenue again.

    Good

    from

    It is in a great location! The staff were not nice except for one of them working in the evening. The other staff on the front desk acted like they could not be bothered.

    The room was clean but warm. I was told that the air conditioner shuts down when the heater system in the building is turned on. It was a warm weekend in the city and we could not cool the room down. The worse thing is heat was coming out of the unit even though the unit was turned off.

    I was told to open the windows by a snobby lady on the desk. The problem was every time a car drive by the street, it runs over the lid of the manhole. Cars were driving by all night!

    The air conditioning problem made me miserable and it will you! Not worth the money I paid.

    A Great Choice

    from

    Very nice hotel. Clean and quiet and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. A convenient location, close to Grand Central Station. We would very happily stay here again.

    Convenient & Comfy

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nites this past weekend and was pleased overall -- very good experience. Hotel lobby is tiny, but modern, very well-kept. Booked room via Clarion website -- Queen bed + sofabed for $184 per nite -- 3 adults sharing 1 room was cramped but just enough room for changing and sleeping. Bathroom is very spacious. Overall, a well-maintained, very clean, safe property. Has a cozy, modern feel. Cannot beat the covenience -- 1 door off of 5th Avenue and less than 100 yards from Madison Ave. Centrally located to 42nd St, Grand Central Station, Fifth Ave shopping, 34th St shopping, Bryant Park. Staff friendliness was spotty; a couple front desk staff were cheerful, helpful; others were dour and indifferent. I would stay here again at the right price mainly for the great location and value for midtown location. For Manhattan, tiny rooms are the norm if you want to stay under $200 per nite room rate and still have clean, modern room in central location.

    Great place to stay!

    from

    Stayed for five days in August and couldnt have been happier. Requested a top floor and was given the 29th floor with a great view. staff at check in was very friendly. room was small, but isn't that what is expected in new york? best thing of all: location location location! in the middle of the best shopping, down the street from the empire state building and a 2 avenue blocks from times square. Would stay here again.

    You Can Do Better

    from

    This was an "okay" hotel. But you can do better for less money. I have paid less and got a larger room with a fridge and a microwave at The Belvedere. I have also paid less at the Super8, and had a nicer experience. Also, during my stay a maid caused a small fire (I never did hear what exactly she did) but the fire alarm does work :) One other complaint I had is that the doorman had no interest whatsoever in getting a taxi for me - he told me to walk to the corner of 5th Avenue myself!

    Nice little cozy place

    from

    Clarion fifth Ave Hotel is just right off fifth AVE, and can't be any more convinience for a shopper like me. It's also couple blocks away from Grand Central, and takes me no more than 10 mins to get on the train. Although the room is small, the lobby is small, the customer sevice isn't quite nice (normal in NYC), however, it's good enough for only $100 per night.

    JUST WALKING IN THE RAIN to see HONEST ABE

    ... Columbus Circle which cut off much of the distance. On our way down 59th we stopped off at Delmonicos and bought some food for tea at the hotel. You get a plastic box with a lid, house your food from a huge 'buffet', then pay for it by weight. I think it's a great idea, but John is not impressed. There are dozens of shops where you can do this in Manhattan.

    It was the black Mercedes bus for the trip home again.

    The end of a great week! Plus Boston.

    nice to eat some broccoli after a week of lots of fried food. It was

    Tri Tip Grill

    A travel blog entry by akshaytrenzy on Nov 25, 2014

    A well crowded restaurant at Rockfeller plaza. Not the first on our choice but a good place. The salad did not turn out to be impressive, it was fully filled with cabbage and traces of other vegetables. Tom did not like his sandwich either. So I guess this is going to be the first and the last time ...

    Here is a more complete record of our journey. Sorry it has taken so long, but a bizillion photographs and a return to real life got in the way. This is by no means a comprehensive look, but it will give you a flavor of what we experienced. To have the opportunity to share this with two of my best friends (who just happen ...

    ... at one of the tollbooths. Since the regular route closed for some reason, it quickly became apparent the driver did not know how to proceed. The rather light Saturday morning traffic made our predicament a little less nerve-racking, especially since we came to a full stop on the highway at least twice while the driver read highway signs, and talked on the cell phone, trying to determine which turn or exit to take.

    Finally, we made it ...
