my friend and I have stayed here 4 or 5 times over the past few years. We have stayed in the rooms with twin beds, and a couple of the suites. It's always been pleasant, and the rates and location are real pluses. This time, however, the sofa bed mattress was a worn out piece of foam over top of... More

This hotel is a little gem. It's situated on the westside of Central Park on 79th Street. Nice, easy check in - friendly staff, in fact friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. We were placed on one of the upper floors, can get the lift or the stairs - the lift is very busy! The set up is room... More

Stayed here with my mum in November 2015. Arrived a little before check in and the staff allowed us to check in regardless. They were very busy and perhaps not overly welcoming but they were not rude. We got a free upgrade to a room with a private bathroom which was great. The rooms is small but it is NYC... More

For me, the location was good. It's on the Upper West Side, close to the W. 79th Street Station (A, B, C trains). The rooms are average for New York, but small compared to typical American cities, like Houston or Omaha. It's clean. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. If one has an unlimited budget or well funded expense... More

The room was small but all a couple needs, right across the street from the Natural History Museum. Great Service and suggestions from the doormen and front desk. Easy access to cabs or Uber if you do not want to walk, we walked to majority of the time due to easy access to where we needed to be.

Just before we arrived, Robert at the front desk guided us via phone to the nearest parking garage, then welcomed us just as kindly to the hotel. The cleaning staff was thorough and pleasant, and the doorman was friendly, offering tips on where to find what we needed in the neighborhood. And the value was excellent! This is a modest... More

While checking in the man behind the desk had the worst attitude. After checking in & entering the elevator after being "upgraded" due to one room having a shared bathroom with strangers, this place looks like it was built 100 years ago & possibly renovated 30 years ago. Both rooms that were booked were very small, actually every doorway, hallway,... More

This was our fourth time staying a Hotel Park 79, our first stay was almost 10 years ago. The hotel has always been a good choice for our needs. We live in Montreal and are well aware that in a dense mega-city like NYC, you have to accept the fact that people can be abrasive. After a 7 hour drive... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic, I honestly don't think it could have been any better! Within 2 blocks either side of the hotel you have access to 2x subway lines that can get you downtown in about 20 minutes or you can enjoy a nice 40ish minute walk to Times Square! The rooms themselves (or at least ours)... 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.
