Ignore the dramaticly negative reviews. We were terrified when we arrived after reading some of the reviews, and we then berated ourselves for believing them once we actually arrived and saw the place for ourselves. It was great. Yes it is budget, and yes it is a little worn around the edges. We don't care about that kind of thing.... More

honestly the only good thing about this place is the location other than that the place is terrible, there was only one bathroom for a whole floor there were also people smoking and the staff did not say anything ,our sheets did not look clean!! way too expensive to stay in a place like this.

Please read our comments here carefully since your health can be at utmost risk. We had to stay for three days. We would like to tell the truth about this hotel since all hotel services during our stay in Royal Park Hotel offered were unbelievably terrific. One of our friends were bitten by bedbugs in 43F.

While the occasional incident of a Bed Bug is possible in any hotel, we take strict preventative measures to prevent it from occurring. Some of our preventative measures include having the entire hotel inspected several times per month by our licensed extermination company. In addition, our... More

This is really a nice little hotel, clean, staffed with nice and attentive, helpful and very polite people. Not fancy but clean. Location is good too - just a block off of Broadway. Avoid the $40 parking garage next door by searching around the streets for free parking if you are lucky. No TV but if you come to NYC... More

Sure it's not a Hilton hotel, but the location right near a metro station (96st) and 10' to Central Park is the best u can get for a reasonable price!! Room clean everyday! Receptionist and staff members is really friendly!!! So if you not wanna spent so much is perfect for you!

We stayed for a week May 2015 and had NO problems with bedbugs or roaches. The staff brought clean towels everyday. The rooms are small but this is New York. We had room 22E a double bed with bathroom, was well decorated with drawers under the bed. The carpet in the hallway was a little smelly but our room was... More

By the sounds of some of these reviews there are some great recently renovated rooms in this hotel, and there are some average ones. We travelled to New York with our 1 year old daughter for 4 nights last week. The manager was very helpful and accommodating . She gave us a great room on the ground floor which was... More

Ok so the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We stayed Monday to Friday in a room with our own bathroom (52F). Towels were changed every day. Free wifi and TV were great (especially when we needed an early night trying to adjust to the time difference) at first we just had a fan but then on the second... More

This hotel is well located. The manager, Denise, attended to all my queries and even arranged a private cab for me from Brooklyn when my accommodation there fell through. My room was comfortable and the private ensuite was spotless. The hotel is walking distance from many great attractions, including Central Park and the Lincoln Centre, and I enjoyed my 2-week...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood 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 theater 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.
