The worst hotel.....they don't care about anything. Very DIRTY ROOMS, spots on sheets, no towels, hairs on the blankets, worst manager. It doesn't look like a hotel. Worst experience. We just paid the cancelation fee which was the full price of one night and left.

The location was perfect. We wanted to be in the upper west side and this place is perfect. Easy to walk to local sites and the subway. The price was $200/night two double beds. Double, not Queen. But the room was wanting. Towels were thin, the bathroom was tiny and to dry myself after a shower I had to open... More

Close to the subway for all major sites, friendly neighbour hood and realistically priced. Yes it's worn and tatty in places, but it's clean and practical. Friendly reception and helpful for directions to get you started. Couple of diners close by for great breakfast too. When visiting new York you don't come here to stay in your room, sleep shower...

The price was perfectly fit for the stay. Got a great deal, only $140/night double-bed ensuite. Option of elevators or stairs, rooms accessed by actual lock/key, not room cards. Room included: double bed w/ comforter, sheets, 4 pillows, extra blanket two night-stands with lamps 24-inch LCD TV air conditioner window (view was of brick building, but could be opened) dresser...

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

At the Royal Park Hotel we take the report of Bed Bugs very seriously. 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

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.
