We stayed at the Marquis on Times Square over Christmas and found it
reasonable (gasp) and safe. I would not hesitate to stay there alone.
Booked it thru Telecharge, they have some sort of deal, and paid $179.00
four nights and $125.00 the other four nights. The rooms are large for NYC,
more a junior suite, and the staff is efficient and friendly. Our daughter
had prearranged a surprise gift for us that took some doing on the part of
the staff and they pulled it off beautifully. It is a convenient location
depending on your agenda but not a charming boutique type hotel.
