I wanted to find a hotel that was close to times square and in a safe area. This location is perfect! Rooms are fairly small and I opted for my own personal bathroom instead of a shared bathroom but the shared bathrooms were fairly large if you decide to go that route. The beds were cozy and the room was... More

We were at Park 79 last June, spending 5 nights there. The only thing we like is convenient location, around 10-minute walk to metro station and it's quite safe to walk back late at night. Staff not friendly (supposedly you are in a big city in NY - who cares) and room not clean. Just don't expect much everything is... More

Perfectly located near subway stations, restaurants, bars, Central Park... The neighborhood was fun and safe. I was there with a friend and I would go again with my wife and kid. The bed was very confy and the personnel was ultra kind. I will stay again at Park 79!

Doorman is always friendly. Staff who are on reception not nice. Speaking amongst themselves in their native tongues which is off putting and rude. Room was clean, although very small. Good air conditioning. Free tea and coffee but no breakfast. A long way out of the city. Shuttle buses would be great. Would not go back.

We traveled as a family and rented the suite; the location was great, near two subway stops, restaurants, Central Park, and Natural History Museum. For NYC it was spacious, however the pull out bed was worn out with no support and many of the springs to support the bed were broken, which meant you felt every steel support bar. The... More

I showed up the wrong day they had the reservation for me (my mistake), but they were still able to provide me with a room without a bath. Service was fine, bath down the hall was cleaner than my bath at home.

It is a small hotel, clean and with a very convenient location in the Upper West Side. Just 2 blocks away from the Central Park and one block from the natural History Museum which is very interesting for the kids. The neigborhood is very quiet and safe. We got back from the theater late and everything just went fine. There... More

Dear Diana: Thank you for taking time to write your TripAdvisor review for your recent stay. We hope your NYC family visit was truly memorable. Yes, some of our rooms are small, and part of the hotel is towards the back or side. But so many hotels worldwide face these same restrictions. But, at Park 79 Hotel, when you leave... More

We rented the "suite," which for NYC was quite spacious and affordable, including two rooms separated by a narrow hallway, a recently renovated bathroom and a refrigerator/microwave. It was very quiet and the staff was very nice, carrying my stroller (with kid inside) up the steps every time we entered. Location is excellent--just steps from the Natural History Museum and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
PARK 79 brings a true touch of an Old World boutique hotel to the Upper West Side, one of New York's historic, safest and most dynamic neighborhoods.Convenient to everything, the hotel is close to major subway and bus lines bringing you everywhere in the city. We are surrounded by fine restaurants and popular pubs, as well as gourmet shopping emporia. Close by is an amazing choice of museums, shops and entertainment for all, and guests respond to our quiet greeting after sightseeing and shopping or a stressful business day. Park 79 is near many of the city's universities and professional schools, including Columbia, Barnard, Fordham and NY Institute of Technology. Stroll to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Broadway, Central Park, Time Warner Center-Columbus Circle. Just across Columbus Avenue, the American Museum of Natural History, while the Metropolitan Museum is a brief x-town bus away through Central Park. Refreshing of rooms continues thrugh mid- and late-2014. Our guests savor a sense of well-being while enjoying the excitement and discovery that is New York City. ... more   less
