I have stayed at the hotel for a little over 1 month now, so I've had enough time to access the property. The property is in a great neighborhood on the UWS convenient to the 96th St subway stop and everything you will need within a 2-4 block radius. The building is well maintained with the exception of the lobby... More

I was in New York for couple of days and actually stayed at this hotel because it was recommend by a friend from home. The hotel is nice, but the cleaning person doesn't seem to do that great of a job at cleaning the rooms. Overall, the price is very good for this hotel and its in a pretty good... More

I'm here during my internship, and I have the impression that a lot of the guests are here to study. I stayed in a shared room with my friend; we shared bathroom and kitchen with the rest of the floor. I don’t know where to start. If you expect to use the kitchen for making simple food, perfect, use the... More

I booked a room here for my 19 year old daughter to stay for a month while she was in NYC for a dance program. Was naturally nervous as i dropped her off there in the big city on her own but found this place to fit the bill nicely! Location was great in a nice neighborhood. Nice market, restaurant... More

Starting with the location, it`s located in an wonderful place, just 3 blocks from a subway station on Broadway. So, it's pretty safe to walk in and out there at night. I did this several times during my stay. Another good reason to stay here is that the rooms were fully renovated, despite the fact that the building is centenary.... More

Comfortable room with nice location. Staffs are friendly and helpful. I and my friend stayed in a twin room, bathrooms are shared with other guests. Reasonable price and it is good for budget limited backpackers.

I have just returned from spending a month at the Hotel 99 and am ready to reserve for next year. Rating this hotel is difficult as I couldn't compare it with the usual expensive Manhattan hotels. First of all, the location at 99th and Broadway on the upper west side was perfect. It is three minutes from the 96th St.... More

Nothing major to report. Rooms were small but well equipped. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location was a little out, but there was a station close by. For the price paid I was happy.

I stayed there for two months and really liked the room I was given. The toilets are clean, though they do not clean your room without you paying a very high cleaning fee so we ended up cleaning our room ourselves. Another thing was that the heater never worked consistently and was often off during the coldest of days. We... 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.
