Stayed there for five days last week. It is true it is on the Upper East side and away from main tourist drag but we wanted to be near our son and see our first grandchild and they live nearby so that was fine for us. Anyway it is very near the 6 line and an easy ride direct into downtown and Grand Central etc. It is also near Central Park and the museums on the Upper East Side and a short walk to the East River.
There were three of us so we went for a 4 person occupancy of a standard suite and we were very pleased with it. There were two spacious rooms, one a bedroom with a tv and a separate sitting room with a double sofa bed, tv and dvd player and a dining table and chairs for eating plus a fully equipped kitchen. Lots of wardrobe space. We made our own breakfast each morning which we liked doing. There was ample hot water, air cond worked and room was kept immaculate by the maid service.There is also free wifi throughout, including guest access with printers in reception where we printed off our boarding passes.
We had a 7th floor room and this is probably the minimum height you need to be at see above the opposite housing and view the NY skyline which was great when it lit up at night as our rooms had very large windows. It is true there is a lot of construction work outside and down 2nd avenue for the new metro and it starts early but it stops late evening. But while we were there it was not every day, as they move the heavy gear up and down the street to work on different sections each day. In any case we come from London and live near Heathrow so we are used to some noise. Besides we were out every day so a bit of noise in the evening was not going to bother us.
If you want value for money, then we found the Marmara was very good and would certainly recommend it. There is no restaurant but I believe there is a gym and laundry facilities.
