We spent the last new year holidays in the hotel, the staff was very friendly and the room was clean all the time. The room was perfect if you are going for traveling due to it is small but comfortable. The price is okay.

I highly recommend this hotel to out-of-town friends who are looking to stay in the city. It's clean for what it's worth and is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Midtown attractions are a quick subway ride away at the station two blocks from where the hotel is. The staff are friendly and are happy to recommend places to... More

My family of 6 traveled to NYC last week and stayed our third time at Riverside Tower. The rooms have been spruced up since our last stay in Dec. 2013. The staff is helpful and courteous. The price is great and with the park across the street, we could not ask for a better place to stay! The subway is... More

My daughter and I spent one night so we could be up early to get in line for the Live Kelly and Michael show. The room was very small, but it was all we really needed. It was very clean, especially the bathroom! Dealt with three people at the front desk and all were very nice and friendly. Check in... More

Visited in March 2015 for Spring Break with a small school group - This hotel is very small and very minimal, but clean and adequate for getting a good nights rest. Plus breath taking views of the Hudson River from our room (suite= 2 rooms attached by an adjoining bathroom). Any other place in NY you would be paying at... More

The hotel was a bit scruffy looking compared to the online photo, and the rooms were very basic. It put us off initially and we wondered if we had made a big mistake. However it was clean and had everything we needed. The staff were incredibly helpful and there were great places to eat nearby, and only 2 blocks to... More

Location is awesome and cost was even better. Neighborhood is safe and was easy to walk around at night. Very close to subway, History Museum and Central Park. Drove into NYC and will advise everyone (DO NOT DRIVE!) Parking on the hotel site said if you cruise around the block for 5 or 10 mins. you could fine parking, 2... 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.
