Surprise! "You can use either bathroom A or B on the second floor at either end of the hall from your room #206," he said, scrawled "A / B 206" on my key card envelope and handed it to me, stonefaced. Usually great at this, I wondered how the heck I missed "shared bathroom" online at Hotels.com making this reservation.... More

My husband and I stayed in a standard room with shared bathroom on the 4th floor. The room was big enough for what we needed and included a basin which was handy. There are two individual bathrooms on each floor which was much better than a 'communal bathroom'. The bathrooms were clean as were the rooms. Our room was at... More

Word of warning. This hotel is in a great location and pretty good value for your money but it's an old building so no air conditioning and I had to change rooms due to some of the rooms having paper thin walls. Overall it's not for the light sleeper due to echoes in hallways and very very thin walls in... More

Thank you for staying at Park 79 Hotel and writing a review. Please note: ALL rooms at Park 79 Hotel do have window air conditioners. With this prolonged, frigid winter just now abating, no a/c's were installed at the time of your stay. This yearly project is starting now, though, even today, it IS cold!.

Great little boutique hotel on upper west side next to Central Park West. First night I had a small room overlooking 79th street that was very noisy. Next day, asked for, and promptly got, a room in the back of the hotel. Great room, very quiet and could even have the window open for fresh air. Bed was fairly comfortable,... More

This is the second time I've stayed at the Park 79 and I'm glad I came back. Yes, this is a basic hotel, but it is clean and comfortable and in a safe area.

I was visiting friends in the city and this was one of the closest to their apartment. It was very basic but included everything needed. Free WiFi, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, and helpful staff. Also, convenient to the subway--I would definitely stay there again and recommend it.

Very basic hotel. Wifi wasn't available in room only in reception. Staff very friendly. Hotel a good 10 minute walk from the heart of Manhattan. Bed was awful and the shared bathroom wasn't very clean. Would I stay here again?? Not for the price.

Dear Austin: Thank you for the very detailed review of Park 79 Hotel, a stay following an enviable very long journey. You so well describe our small hotel and its quiet strengths.

Thank you, dear guest, for so detailed a review, much appreciated. Given how small our elevator is indeed, we cannot offer certain services that would require additional movement of supplies throughout the hotel.
