We stayed at the West Townhouse the last week of May, having never travelled to New York we did not know what to expect with the accommodation or location, I must say we were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by Monica upon arrival, she provided maps and lots of tips and great information for where to go, eat, see and... More

Great location away from the busyness of midtown, yet still close to restaurants, coffee/tea shops, the subway, grocery stores, pharmacies, Central Park (couple of blocks) and some museums. Monica was very helpful with suggestions/recommendations about things to do and getting around. Very well maintained brownstone with lots of the 1800's character still there. Very clean, comfortable, and actually quite spacious... More

We just got home from a wonderful 5 days in New York. Staying at the West Townhouse was perfect. The apartment was clean and charming, thick towels. beautiful sheets, a great location, and QUIET! Monica is lovely and we were delighted to use this as our home base. We definitely hope to come back and say again.

We were thrilled to find this gem as the Upper a West Side is a fabulous neighborhood, but there aren't a lot of hotels. However, staying in this well maintained brownstone was perfect. The apartment was pretty, immaculately clean and comfortable. Monica, the owner who greeted us as we arrived, was wonderful. She was friendly, helpful and informative. The location... More

This place is a real find! Excellent location, quiet street (for NYC) and beautifully furnished. Larry and Monica are great hosts and we will definitely be coming back when we are next in NYC. It is only a couple of blocks from Central Park in one direction and Riverside Park in the other and a very short walk to the... More

It has been 3 years since we first discovered The West Townhouse. When organising a recent return trip to NYC, booking in our accommodation was our top priority. This visit we made sure that we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for our week's stay. This time we were in the lower floor suite which is situated at the back... More

We appreciated the location of The West Townhouse very much. It's in a short walking distance to many good restaurants (a lot of them top ranked on tipadvisor as we were positively surprised) and central park. We also walked into town and to the upper east side but I guess I would also say that I like to explore the... More

We recently stayed in a lower suite of The West Townhouse for a week. We loved feeling like a part of the neighborhood by staying in this townhouse. It was a great location to get anywhere in New York. It is within walking distance to Central Park, numerous great restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. The subway and buses are both... More

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the West Townhouse. We had an amazing time. We found the apartment to be exactly as described on the website. Location was brilliant - 2 blocks from Central Park; away from Time Squares madness but you can be there by subway in 15 minutes. The upper west side had great... 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.
