Stayed here 9 nights the first time ever visiting New York and the US in 2011. We were so overwhelmed by NYC that it did not matter were we slept and we were travelling on a budget. (I was still a student and my boyfriend just started to work) The hotel lobby was gorgeous, location was very good, many places... More

This Hotel is part way through refurbishing the rooms - we got a newly refurbished double room with new bathroom - no complaints on that score - helpful staff at reception and Hotel is close to Subway into the City. Plenty of places to eat and deli's within walking distance. Excellent value for money.

I can 't review the hotel itself, because I never stayed there. Less than 24 hours before my check-in date, I got an email from "Gleny", informing there was no room available for me, despite the fact that I had a confirmed, prepaid in full confirmation.

This place is awful. I don't even understand how it has reviews from travelers as the manager told me they only have housing for J1 students. And btw, you can never talk to this manager - Glenny. She is never to be found. Here I had the only bad New York experience. Awful staff!!!

This is a cheap hotel, dirty and with bedbugs. really not worth to stay with this price. By my knowledge, according to NY city law and the code of this building, they should not charge to guest for such an expensive price because this is not a real hotel but an apartment building for long-term stay tenants, and they are...

This hotel is currently being investigated as illegal by the NYC government. Tenants have complained of harassment by management and those allegations were sustained by a judge. Like so many places in NYC it has a nice facade but is a dump inside. Until they get the legal mess straightened out I would not stay in this place again.

I read about many unhappy travelers slagging off this hotel. They might be right as I can't prove them wrong. To be honest I can't praise the Imperial Court Hotel all the way, but I can't have bad words either. My overall experience with this place was more than decent and I would recommend it if you asked me. I... More

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.
