Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Not a large room but you're only there to sleep. Share bathrooms but they were very clean and water was hot. Located just a short walk from some great cafes, subway and Central Park. The staff were very helpful and polite.

If locate suits you, it is a nice quiet small hotel. With good staff. Some of the room need work, like better lighting, and everything is very small, but adequate. Check things like air conditioner to make sure it works, and faucets, If problems exist, staff is prompt and helpful, but bring a reading light.

Booked a last minute trip to New York and stayed at Park 79 Hotel. Great location near Central Park and subway in short walking distance. Free WiFi at the hotel was a plus. Perfect if you want to visit New York. It does not have any food facilities however there are plenty of restaurants in a short walking distance would... More

This hotel was walking distance to everything we needed during our honeymoon. The rooms aren't the largest in fact they were on the smaller side but that it expected in New York. The staff was kind and the room was always clean! Given the chance I would definitely stay again.

Affordable hotel right across the street from Central Park; its an easy on/off from the Hudson Parkway. Not all rooms have a bathroom; when you do the water pressure/temp is a bit off, but the location/price offsets that relatively minor inconvenience.

The location is what drew me to this hotel. Experiencing the lack of amenities and downright rude customer service is why I am writing this review. There are many other hotels in the Museum of Natural History area for similar prices. Don't waste your time and money on Park 79. There was visible mold in the shower stall in the... More

Worst hotel experience of my life! The short story is do not stay here; this place is a dump. Our room was the size of a closet, had awful smells (mixture of mildew and cigarettes) and the toilet wasn't working properly (I imagine mgmt knew this bc the bathroom came supplied with a plunger). There's no closet space, only a... More

This is the second time we've stayed at Park 79 and although the rooms are tiny and the bathrooms even tinier (in the rooms we've paid for) the location is out of this world. It is such a relief to get out of the city and head ot the upper west side just a block from central park! You truly... More

Clean, affordable and in a great location. I would highly recommend it to travelers that need a decent accommodation for a short stay in NY. The location is very convenient . Close to the hotel there are plenty of bars and restaurants and the hotel is only 5 min walk from the subway!

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.
