New York Marriott Marquis Hotel Review: This 49-story hotel comes in Las Vegas proportions, with 1,892 guest rooms and 57 suites, three restaurants and two lounges. It takes up an entire city block and has hunkered over Times Square since 1985. The 37-story-high atrium lobby is in itself a tourist attraction. It's a glitzy chrome-and-aluminum amusement park complete with a revolving lounge, faux foliage and glass-enclosed elevators that zoom up and down at breakneck speeds. The oversize accommodations are all surprisingly quiet and are labeled The Room that Works with complimentary Wi-Fi, large console tables with two power outlets, PC modem jacks, moveable task lights and ergonomic chairs. The views are terrific. Dining choices include The View Restaurant & Lounge, Crossroads American Kitchen & Bar and Broadway Lounge. If you want to ring in the New Year on Times Square, consider reserving for the Party Within A Party, the hotel's annual New Year's gala, complete with Champagne, dinner, dancing, entertainment and a laser light show. In addition, this comprehensive hotel features a fitness center, business center and meeting and event space.
