St. Marks Hotel
Travel Blogs from New York City
This trip was originally supposed to be a quick trip to London for a cousins wedding. As the weeks drew nearer, I noticed the flights from the USA to London looked full. Then I noticed flights leaving the States looked better on Tuesday and Wednesday. The more I thought about it, if I had to leave Tuesday, I also might as well take Monday off and give myself a week off. Obviously since I was leaving on the weekend, flights to the UK were full, so I was looking at doing ...
... After relaxing in the hotel room for a bit, I dragged her out onto the streets so that we could get a bite to eat. I had found a small Italian restaurant not far from the hotel that I really wanted to try out.
As it turns out, we ended up running across Heartland Brewery first and stopping there instead. I’m actually really glad we did. Mom and I bought ourselves two beer samplers and some food and then stumbled back to the hotel tipsy afterward. Really, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews St. Marks Hotel New York City
Loved the stay and the location. Cannot beat the price.
The hotel's location was awsome. Great private room with shower for low price. Excellent value for money.
It's ok, considering the price
As cheap as it gets for a room w/ private bath in NYC, so don't expect anything special. It is very basic, but it's clean, and if you don't bother that some guests might pay their room by hours, it is a fair choice if you're on a budget. It is centrally located in the East Village, but be aware that, since the windows and the AC have large gaps, the street noise inside the room is enormous, it's like sleeping on the sidewalk.
If you prefer something quieter, and a better resp. different neighbourhood: try the riverside tower hotel at the UWS. Comparable price, same standard.
Okay for the price
We stayed at the St Marks based on prior reviews on Trip Advisor. They were pretty much right on. Great location!!! Close to bus lines and not too expensive to take a taxi to most places in Manhattan since it is centrally located. But be careful if you have children, there are 2 adult tv stations! Room is very basic, no clock/radio, no tv remote, very small bathroom. People were very nice. Can't beat the price. We would probably stay there again.
If you like "---", come here
This is the most disgusting hotel that I ever had in my entire life, and believe me I have stayed in a lot of budget hotels around the world (India, Cuba, Guatemala, etc.)
We could hear our neighbours like they were in a bed in the same room. The problem was that they didn't come to the hotel to sleep!
1) There was hair on the wall of the shower.
2) Furniture full of cigarette burn marks
3) Unfresh smelling
I definitely want to pay 20 USD extra for another budget hotel, but where you can sleep at least!!
I completely disagree with those that rated this place very low. First of all, there is an ice machine on the third floor, you can pick up a remote at the front desk, and vending machines are made available just next to the ice machines. What more can you ask for when only paying $110/night in New York City???
It's difficult to choose a matter to start.
Stayed at the St. Mark's with spouse for 2 nights to visit daughter at NYU for parents' weekend. Like to try different hotels. Will not be staying at the St. Mark's hotel in the future. The place needs a serious cleaning and new furniture! The hallway floors and walls were dirty, the walls in our room were filthy. Surprisingly, the toilet & shower stall in the tiny bathroom were clean, but I was afraid to touch the walls. The beds were not very comfortable. Our room had a small desk and wooden chair that was full of what looked like cigarette burn marks. The young college crowd invades the neighborhood at night and it becomes very loud and rowdy. (Have you ever seen the movie "Animal House"?) I tried putting the air conditioner fan on high to drown out the street noise, but to no avail! Also be aware that there is a porno station on the TV, and no remote control. No ice machines. No coffee.
Ok, so this is not a beautiful hotel for honeymooners.
When I arrived at St Mark's Hotel, a woman stopped me on the street to ask if I had the time. Not thinking, I told her I wasn't wearing my watch. It was a DUH moment, as I realized she really wasn't looking for the time. Thus began my weekend stay at St. Mark's Hotel, a simple place with high steps that only accepts cash and traveler's cheques. A few of the questionable amenities: there is no door to buzz you in, you just walk up the steps and to your room. I had the dickens of a time adjusting the shower handles to make the water not hot. Also, the two complementary porno stations on the television were startling. However, I was equally surprised to see parents at the hotel with their children, the staff was always helpful and friendly, and my small dorm like room was cleaned and cared for each day. The hotel grew on me, I absolutely loved the location and this area connecting the village to Chelsea, and I would stay there again. Though I was apprehensive on the first day, the place grew on me. Plus the price- $110.00- tax included -is impressive.
