The staff was accommodating to my request for changing my reservations. The location was nice near Central Park. The room was okay nothing to rave about. The furniture was old and dated. The was comfortable and served its purpose. The hot water took s very long time to get hot. I believe it was more than 10 minutes or more... More

To be fair, a native New Yorker such as myself should know what "boutique" means and that space is a big commodity. We booked a suite for two adults and two children. It was extremely tight, with a double bed and a queen pullout. I asked for a bigger room, but was told this was the biggest. There was also... More

The staff was friendly, and my room was clean. Plenty of fresh towls, soap, and shampoo. The room was small, but this is New York. For the price, I was very satisfied. The hotel.is very close to Roosevelt Park and the Museum of Natural History. It's close to subway stations, and an easy walk to Central Park. Really a great... More

Cute little old hotel--I knew this wouldn't be the typical big name spacious hotel, but I still had to adjust to the smaller darker room and bathroom. Two of us stayed for 5 nights and it was a great value. West 79th Street is an easy and quiet location. Great neighborhood. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

The hotel was in a great place near Central Park however the room was very small and plain. I suggest they take some time to simply hang a picture on the wall. If you want ice you call the desk. It took 1 1/2 hours to get!

I always love staying at Park 79----not only is it in a wonderful neighborhood in New York, I always am made to feel welcomed and "at home." Although they only offer coffee and tea in the morning, it is very near lots of places for breakfast---or a coffee!

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at this hotel. The location is great, 2 blocks from Central Park and right by AMNH. There are two train stations within 2 blocks so using the subway was very convenient. At the end of the day it was a good place to sleep but not really in the heart of anything else.... More

My friend and I went to New York just for one day/night as I was going to The Beacon theater for a concert. At arriving in New York early and walking from Grand Central Station to the hotel we arrived at 11:00am just hoping to leave our bags there so that we can continue to venture NY before out check...

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.
