we stayed at this hotel because of its location.Unfortunately it is a very old hotel. My husbands NEW Phillips razor was stolen on the day before we left and only found out at our next destination.My daughter went back on the same day but no luck.The staff are all very unfriendly.

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.

Small -- yes, but it is NYC and room just for sleeping in. Bed fine, shared bath roomy. Desk clerk greeted me by name when coming or going. Had to resort to lobby for WiFi from time to time -- small annoyance. GREAT location and walking out LATE safe. GREAT fresh cookie place around the corner open 24 hours! Hope... More

Loved this place. Nothing even remotely luxurious about it, and everything that others have said about it having heating issues and a slow elevator are true. However, we stayed in a suite on the first floor, and although it was tiny, we fared just fine with our two kids aged 10 & 14. The staff was incredibly helpful. Housecleaning did... More

I wanted to find a hotel that was close to times square and in a safe area. This location is perfect! Rooms are fairly small and I opted for my own personal bathroom instead of a shared bathroom but the shared bathrooms were fairly large if you decide to go that route. The beds were cozy and the room was... More
