This place has a lovely exterior, and a fantastic location. We stayed in a room with two single beds. Pretty much all it had. Two beds, tiny bathroom, one bench, and no A/C. It's safe, but luxury? No. The TV is basic, the room is so small there is no room for a chair, the view is of other rooms.... More

Stayed at the Park 79 Hotel last week while a tourist in NYC. We were in a room with semi-private bath, which was absolutely not an issue, both bathrooms were always available. The room was modest with a double bed, sink in the room, toiletries provided and complimentary coffee in the lobby in the morning. The building is a converted... More

In all fairness, the advertisement was for a semi-private room, so we were warned. Please keep in mind, though, that this means you will be using a shower and toilet down the hall, so the germ-conscious will want to bring flip-flops for the shower -- and soap for the bathroom stink, since there isn't any. The room itself was clean,... More

Dear LGL: Thank you for taking time to write your review of Park 79 Hotel. If you'll go through many reviews, where a shared bath was part of the selected stay, those facilities are always reviewed highly--clean, never a wait, convenient. That there was no soap should not have occurred, and we apologize. Of course, most travelers do wish to... More

Recently stayed here for a trip up with family to visit relatives. We needed somewhere not pricey but was convenient to the city. This was a great place and met our needs. My sister and brother shared a suite, which was adequate for a non couple because of the pull down couch. There was a fridge, a safe and a... More

A great hotel located within 50 steps of Central Park. Museums within walking distance as well. The staff were super friendly and reliable service was available all hours. The room was rather small, but for me it was adequate as I only needed to sleep. Was out most of the days returning to hotel late in evening. Shared bathroom was... More

It's a great location and the rooms are spotlessly clean but the rooms are small and dark and a bit depressing. Upgrade a better room and it IS better but by the time you've paid for that, you could have stayed in mid town at a name brand hotel... I've stayed here three times now. It used to be slightly...

We booked the standard room and were depressed by how small it was - literally no room to pass each other for two people plus bags! It also smelled of mould and a cheap room freshener fragrance - and the windows were too dirty to see out of clearly!! But then we upgraded the next morning to the next level... More

Dear Willus: Thank you for taking time to detail your recent stay at Park 79 Hotel. We regret that the first choice accommodation did not please you. Our staff tries to keep each room up to high standards of cleanliness, but each guest can have a differing sense of how we are doing. We almost never receive a bad word... More

We stayed here for 2nights last week and though the location was ok the room was extremely tiny. It is away from the bustling neighborhood of Times Square so quiet. We were quite disappointed with the stay but staff was friendly

If you want to experience New York City living at its best, drop your critical faculties about all other details and embrace Park 79's location. The Natural History Museum is across the street, with a lush park surrounding it. Grab a bench and watch the the folks go by....Or, choose from an array of restaurants with indoor and outdoor sitting,... More
