My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to NYC. I chose this hotel for many reasons- price, location, and of course user reviews. After a small snafu with Expedia (not the hotel) was straightened out, we enjoyed our stay immensely. Our room, 615, a deluxe king, was at the back of the building so it was quiet... More

We booked this hotel on the back of booking flights to the US, travelling back through NYC from Hawaii. Stayed on the UWS before and the hotel is well located (block from Central Park and near museums/galleries and a block and a half from Subway). The area is much quieter and less manic than further downtown and provided a good... More

The location of the hotel is excellent, the rooms are small but clean and the bed was comfortable as well. All employees were very kind and helpful. It is a kind gesture to have a coffe machine at the reception to ensure that your day starts well :).

This hotel is small, it is located in an excellent part of Manhattan. The rooms are not big but no rooms in New York are big. The room was a bit dark but that was due to being at the back of the hotel, on the flip side you're away from any road noise. Being one block away from Central... More

Park 79 is a beautiful old hotel with original period touches in a perfect location, just off Central Park across the street from the Natural History Museum and in walking distance of many great shops and restaurants. The staff was amazing, the room was lovely. Can't wait to go back.

We got there early since we had taken a red eye flight and the staff did everything possible to check us in early, unfortunately they could not but they held our bags and recommended a little diner. I was traveling solo with my 4 year old so we headed to the American Museum of Natural History which is not even... More

The photos for this hotel are deceiving-- it isn't as nice as the pics would suggest. At least, this was the case for the room we stayed in. I wouldn't call this a 3 star hotel either. 2 is more like it. But the location is great.

For its location the rate is fair. The hotel is 1 min walking from Central Park and American museum of Natural History. There are several restaurants nearby and a subway two blocks away. The elevator is very slow and demand a lot of patience. The service was good. The rooms are very small the one I was hosted did not... 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.
