Can I start by expressing my sincere thanks to employee David at the check-in and check-out desk. He was very calm, respectful and helpful. I had a terribly busy schedule during my stay, and he made sure I was informed about all my options before checking out. The location, the lobby (which is rather small but pretty impressive), the room:...

We stayed in New York for a total of 6 nights recently (27 May 2016). The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was confortable. But...

This hotel could and should be very good. It has loads going for it : prime location, good looking building, cool lobby, very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, decent sized rooms for NYC. However, the rooms and corridors are in need of attention. Don't get a back room on the lower levels (like I did, before I asked to...

The best thing about this hotel is its location. Next to a subway stop, shops, the MET Opera and only a 20 minute walk from Times Square. Right in the heart of Manhattan. We were a group of people staying there for business, which meant we got to experience different types of rooms. Some of them spacious and bright, some...

The hotel is nice and comfortable. However, attention was not the best. The last day, a lady in charge of housekeeping knocked on my door in the morning to ask if I had checked out, this was annoying for me because the suggested check out time was about 11 am but she was beating my door at 8 am when...

Although the public areas are nice the standard bedrooms (at least the one we were allocated) are poor. The AC unit in ours(807) was incredibly noisy and the view from our window was of a brick wall, not something you want to pay 4* prices for! After complaining we were moved to room 1018 which was much nicer. Good location...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
