It may not be the height of glamour, but the Marriott Residence Inn is a comfortable, reasonably priced choice for an extended stay. Rooms are immaculately kept and big picture windows in the 34-story tower look out on to iconic NYC scenes such as Bryant Park or 1 World Trade Center in some high-floor rooms. The spacious studio-style rooms—which average more than 300 square feet—include kitchenettes with a full-size fridge, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher (you can also request a hot plate) and either a breakfast bar or small table. You won't have to cook your own eggs, though, since a hot breakfast is included in the rate—the buffet is just off the third-floor Hearth Room, the sprawling guests' lounge-cum-work area, which is equipped with three free-to-use computers. A large laundry room (more than a dozen washers and dryers), gym and on-site store selling snacks, frozen meals and alcohol are further conveniences. Rooms: 357.
