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

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...

I did much research looking for a suite in NY and found this very attractive (and affordable by NY standards) hotel next to Central Park, museums, etc. Clean, comfortable, spacious, somewhat friendly staff, great location!

Arrived into our room to find the air conditioner was behind the bedhead. Who in their right mind would put it there, funny smell to room. We were sharing a bathroom and that wasnt a problem. Went to get moved, no the receptionist couldnt do it have to talk to manager. Yes she would move us, except you couldnt get... More

The upper west side offers tourists a slightly more sane lifestyle than downtown Manhattan. This hotel, located 2 mins from The American Museum of Natural History allowed easy access to walk to Central Park West, walk through the park, go west to the Broadway Subway or Bus and generally enjoy a fantastic neighbourhood. The room was chosen for its price,... More

My sister and went to NYC for a week, and considering the price we were very pleasantly suprised.

Pleasantly surprised. we had 2 single beds plus bathroom. While the room and bathroom was small, it had everything we needed . Storage space to unpack, tv, a safe for our valuables, even a hair dryer! Clean, great service at the reception desk, very friendly. Price was great, very convenient location.

Tips: -Verify that your room have a private bath because not all do so. -Do aknowledge the parking is located on 83rd Street. It's outsourced and 2 seperate lots are availables. Spaces are limited!!! We we're turned away at the first lot and we had to convince the clerk at the second one. -Only a block away from Central Park.

The location was extremely convenient, and the staff -- especially the night staff -- were very helpful. The room was tiny (so tiny it was awkward to share), beds clean but very soft, and the bathroom was a miracle of organization in a closet-sized space. There was more noise and less air conditioning than I would have liked. And while... More

No toilet in the room, was no problem at all, as I was afraid it would be. We mist a refrigerator more than a toilet. The room was very small. That the hotel was situated so near Central Park was very nice

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
