I stayed at Hotel Alexander for the month of October. Because I booked very late (mid-September) I had to change rooms several times because of a lack of availability of the room I wanted to book. Therefore, I got to stay in two of their king bedrooms w/ private bathroom (nice furnishings, clean, and big enough for a room in... More

It's one of the cheap hotels in NYC and well located, not cheap in the sense of missing comfort even the rooms are small, but difficult to give them points. So, refurbished rooms, but it is more a hotel for a long stay, as well as, for to make you a price, they inquire if you have a residence or... More

Hotel Alexander is very conveniently located on 94th and West End Ave. 3 min walk to the express 123 stop. The place is super clean, and the hotel personnel is very professional. I have never had an issue personally with any of them. I stayed in a studio/shared bath for 10 months and never had a problem. The cleaning staff... More

I stayed in Hotel Alexander for 5 months while transitioning from London to New York, and decided to write a review towards the end of my stay. After reading several reviews, I'm quite shocked at how negative they are. It's clear that most people don't understand what living in Manhattan is like. You will not find a cheaper, cleaner, better... More

We stayed at this extended-stay hotel for a month in July, since we wanted to spend time with a daughter and new grandson who live just north of this hotel. This place is a work in progress.

Terrible Management and staff. Internet has been broken for weeks and after them assuring me that someone is coming out "the next day" to fix it, it hasn't been fixed. Manager is incapable of doing his job and the front desk people are unhelpful. Great location

We take all complaints seriously and address and fix all guest issues as quickly as possible. Unfortunately in some cases guests are using WiFi for gaming and streaming movies, regretfully most hotel Wi-Fi across the globe will not support this type of usage. In this specific case we have hired a technology consultant to add access points throughout the hotel,... 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.
