I stay for two nights at Park 79 and was very impressed. I was in New York in winter so not peak tourist season and went with this hotel because it was cheap and in a good location (i like Upper West, plus it is close to both the 1 and A, C subway lines and Central Park). I wasn't... More

My daughter and I just returned from a two night stay . I was a little concerned as the reviews seemed inconsistent . Our stay was better than expected . The location and price are excellent. We had a king deluxe with a private bathroom. The building is a converted apartment . Our bathroom had an oddly placed column that... More

The staff was very courteous and helpful. The hotel is located walking distance from important attractions, such as the Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, Central Park, etc. There are very good restaurants and shopping areas in the vicinity. It is an efficient, no frills hotel because it does not have breakfast or food service. However, since the neighborhood has... More

A treasure of a boutique on the UWS, within sight of the Museum of Natural History, easily accessible to subway lines and the 79th Street Crosstown bus. A little warm on lower floors, but a treasure. Staff helpful and charming!

Location cannot be beat. Service is unobtrusive and building (which used to be an apartment building) does not look like a hotel, so it's discrete. I liked that. The value is outrageous. Prices are fantastic and what you get is far better than you'd expect. I will stay here again. I've stayed with private bath and without: both are comfortable... More

Thank you, Orion, For your very positive review. We are pleased to have your return visit--very pleased. Your advice on selecting a room with private bath...or shared..is on target, as sometimes there is some disappointment on arrival when an "error" is booked. They don't realize the budget rate went with the shared bath. So, your advice on TripAdvisor is much... More

I had an unexpected business trip and was pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderfully located and quiet hotel. The doorman, front desk staff and housekeeping were all so helpful and professional. There were restaurants located nearby and Central Park was so close.

Rooms are really small, which is fine considering the location. Water in the shower took forever to heat up and the water pressure was not great. The hallways are all hard surfaces, so anyone doing anything near your room is really loud. I probably won't go back, but for what I needed for that night (location and a reasonable price)... More

This is a charming, attractive boutique hotel on the upper west side of New York city! The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The staff are excellent and very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I have stayed at Park 79 annually in December for at least 10 years. It is always comfortable, reliable and affordable (for NYC). Centrally located on the Upper West Side, it's right across the street from the Museum of Natural History and a short walk to Central Park and numerous great restaurants.

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.
