For over 100 years, The Martinique has been an important presence in the heart of Midtown Manhattan in New York City. We were pleasantly surprised by our comfortable stay at New York’s Radisson Martinique On Broadway, after expecting a much different hotel experience based on our previous stay in New York City.
Update: Martinique On Broadway is now part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.
Here is what we found at Martinique On Broadway:
Great Location To Landmarks
When we travel we try to pick hotels that are in good proximity to at least some of the sights we are hoping to see. New York’s Radisson Martinique On Broadway was in a great location near some of New York’s most significant landmarks, such as the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. The hotel was also a short walk to Penn Station, which we needed to hop on the short train ride to Philadelphia to end our trip with a few days there. It was also close to the gigantic Macy’s and steps away from the Subway. A great location to easily get around New York.
The hotel was quiet, beyond greeting others in the hallway or elevator, we did not hear a sound all night. Taking a look out our window at the scaffolding made us think the hotel was in the middle of some upgrades, but other than noticing that, we would never have been any the wiser.
The Martinique’s lobby featured a mosaic-tile floor and an 18-story spiral staircase, showcasing the rich history of the hotel and dynamic location. We were in awe when we saw how intact they were today; absolutely gorgeous!
Our last time in NYC, we had a taste of how small and compact hotel rooms are in the big city. Our room during that trip was barely big enough to fit the bed and turn around in the bathroom. We arrived to the Radisson at night and because there was not a room available like we reserved, we were upgraded to a penthouse suite! We had already used a gift voucher for one night that we had earned with the Radisson 150 campaign we were a part of, so the upgrade was a double treat. We were amazed when we walked into the suite to see how much room we had; it was definitely better than a room that barely fit a bed. Jacob enjoyed all the space as well after long days wandering around the city.
Clean and Comfortable Rooms
The room was nice with clean and simple decor. We found the bed to be quite comfortable and we had such a restful sleep each night. The bathroom was wonderful; it looked brand new. The shower was huge and the water pressure was excellent. The lobby was big and there was a restaurant, but we did not have time to try it out since we were always on the go.
We liked the attention to security at the lobby entrance. Since they have such a close proximity to significant landmarks, you are asked to show your key card upon entering the hotel lobby in the evenings. We appreciated that extra step that was totally unobtrusive to us, yet helped us feel secure.
Pleasant Staff Interactions
We did not ask much of hotel staff during our stay, but felt that the few interactions were pleasant. Beyond the upgrade, we had a nice peaceful stay and would not hesitate to suggest the Radisson Martinique On Broadway for its great location and comfortable, clean rooms.
