This is a great boutique hotel in the Upper West side. Rooms are basic, but spacious and clean. It is a short walk from Central Park. Elevators and stairs available. The flooring is hardwood through, which looks nice but can't be noisy with people coming and going. I requested a room away from the elevator and didn't have an issue... More

The location of this hotel is excellent. Close to museums, the park and subway stations. Lots of shopping and food within walking distance. Nice, safe neighborhood. It was nice to be away from the tourist crowds in a more residential area. I stayed here with my mom and chose it because it has an elevator, twin beds and a reasonable... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in this conveniently located boutique hotel just west of Central Park. Our room was on the 5th floor at the back of the hotel. It was clean with a comfortable bed but quite small. The room was rather warm and there was no way to control it since "it was automatic" according... More

Dear Sir: We regret that your recent stay was not satisfactory. A small, older hotel can, at times, not meet a guest's expectations. Seasonal changes sometimes bring operational problems, and we try to work towards guest satisfaction. We apologize for your discomfort. Relating to the note on the lack of attention upon your departure, this is a surprise and concern.... More

In a city where a real estate mortgage and taxes could kill any business, “Park 79” somehow works a miracle. The rate for my room was $150. Given I could easily have paid twice that much – I had some legitimate concerns about what I might expect when I got there. The hotel is located west of Central Park, across... More

I stayed at the Park 79 on a recent research trip, and it was exactly what I needed. As other travelers have noted, the rooms are quite small, but no smaller than you would expect in any major European city. I opted for the single room with a private bath, so I can't comment on the shared bath experience; my... More

This hotel was a great place to stay for our 3 night extended weekend! We knew the rooms would be small, so that was no surprise. We were at the hotel very little, only to sleep, so this was perfect for us. I had booked a single room, shared bathroom. We were upgraded to a room with our own bathroom,... More

I've stayed at the Park79 before and had a perfectly fine experience. Recently, when a billing issue came up I called the manager. Within minutes the charge was credited and the issue resolved. It is the perfect little hotel for us to stay in when in NYC, and we will not hesitate to book rooms there again.

Rooms are quite small, cleanness is average, staff is OK, price is good, location is awesome... Flat fare from or to JFK airport is around $60 + tip. The hotel is next to Central Park, in 79th street on the West side. It is easy to use public transportation or grab a cab, if you need. Also, a lot of... More

Dear Rui: Thank you for taking time to review hotel on TripAdvisor. We do promote accommodations of various size and bedding types, with some of the rooms "petit" and affordable.

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.
