I visit NYC 2-3 times per year and I usually stay here. There are several advantages to staying at this property. It is on the upper west side so being mainly residential it is more quiet than midtown locations. It is also cheaper for the same reason. The hotel is next to the 96th street station which is an express stop. It makes getting around a breeze. The biggest advantage to this location for me again is that it is a residential area so for those of us who bring our vehicle to NYC, parking on the street is usually very doable and will save you a ton over parking in a lot. There are a lot of restaurants and small shops in the area that cater mostly to local people so they aren't touristy. Access to Central Park is excellent as well. Just a few blocks away.
The hotel is generally quiet, the rooms are clean and well equipped however they are very small. The only reason I didn't give full marks to this property is the service which can be pretty spotty.
