The Marcel at Gramercy Hotel | Gramercy Park, New York | One of the six boutique options that the Amsterdam Hospitality group has to offer in New York City. Located on East 24th and 3rd Avenue, in the renowned Gramercy Park neighborhood, The Marcel at Gramercy Hotel is convenient to both the frenetic business culture of midtown and the trendy shops and bars of lower Manhattan.
Hotel Marcel introduces artistic details to the luxury New York hotel motif, with chic modern comforts that reflect the vibrant cultural influence of the city’s artists while giving a nod to the historic – but still-thriving – scene. I would call this option affordable luxury.

In-room amenities include wireless internet with a surcharge of $11.95 per day, a 32” LCD flat screen television with cable channels, alarm clock with IPod docking station, work desk, safe, Mini-bar, iron/ironing board and hair dryer. Marble bathrooms with raindrop shower head and spa amenities by LATHER.
During my visit I was upgraded to a Suite (see video above). My only issues with this hotel are, (1).I am not a big fan of carpets specially in New York, but I have to admit that in this case they were on top conditions. But as I always say, this is a matter of taste. (2).The closets were almost inexistent, and unfortunately I like to travel with a lot of baggage, to always raise for the occasion.
