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

The hotel had a good location, just 1 block away from the underground station. The hotel was very clean but basic with the bedroom small. Friendly staff. Good for anyone wanting a cheap place to stay but wouldnt recommend it for anything more than a few nights.

The room is tiny, the ac is very noisy, the tv never works, the front desk isn't nice, friendly, and helpful and even raises her voice sometimes, the wall is thin and the phone line transferring to front desk always hangs up on you. Watery free coffee/hot chocolate in the morning at the lobby. Location is good tho.

We stayed here for 7 nights and chose it primarily for the price, The hotel is away from the mayhem of Times Square but has underground stations at 77th, 72nd and 81st, so no problem getting around Manhattan and beyond, all the staff we encountered were friendly and courteous, we had a standard room on the 7th floor and at...

Location wise, this hotel is pretty good - situated in a quiet neighbourhood and away from any tourist traps. It's also well priced for NYC and they offer guests free coffee in the morning. That said, there are a few negatives: least friendly service we received during our entire trip to the US, rooms are dated and not that clean... More

I am writing this review to warn people not to stay here. The rooms are tiny which is to be expected in NYC but no one should have to endure filth and stench. It was so bad that I was worried about getting into the bed. Under no circumstances should you stay here, no matter how good the rate. Window... More

I've stayed at Park79 several times and always found it to be a great hotel. The front staff is very helpful and welcoming while the location is by the west side near the subways and buses. I come by myself to NYC for theatre every couple of years and economically this is perfect

Great calm location near Central park away from the stress down Time Square, Very small single room with the bathrooms in the hallway,but they were always free so that was never a problem.Free coffee in the morning. Wouldn`t mind going back in the near future.
