We stayed at the Quality Inn in Hyde Park when picking up our son from the Culinary Institute. The hotel is close to the Institute and is in an area where there are plenty of amenities. The hotel has ample parking.
Check in was easy, and we had to climb stairs to get to our room, we had only small luggage, so this wasn't a problem. I am not sure if there is an elevator or not, as the person at the desk said "your room is right up those stairs."
Our room was a bit dated, and the large mirror was cracked, but it was clean. We had a microwave and a fridge that we did not use, but it was nice to have,
Internet in the room was bad. Our phones and iPads could not get the wifi, and the laptop connected, but the connection would drop. We called the desk and they told us to reboot our devices and offered no help there. Internet DID work in the lobby. I've always had bad internet at Quality Properties, so we were prepared to be without.
The beds seemed fine to us, but we were exhausted after a long drive and can sleep anywhere at that point. A positive is that the hotel was quiet.
Shower pressure was great, which is important for me, and the bathroom was large enough to comfortably maneuver.
Breakfast was good. Breads, fruits, danishes, eggs, meat and waffles were there to be had. The breakfast area is a bit small, but it was not busy when we were there, so it wasn't a problem.
There are better properties out there, but pricewise, you can't do much better for the area for a decent hotel. I would consider this hotel my number 2 choice if I couldn't succeed on bagging a higher quality hotel on a discount site.
I think rooms on the first floor near the lobby have better internet, if that is important to you.

Thank you for staying with us during your trip to the Culinary Institute of America! As you mentioned we are only a few miles north of the CIA. We do not have an elevator at our hotel but we do only have two floors and if a first floor room is needed we are always happy to accommodate guest with a first floor room. I do hope that after your stay with us you will consider us your first choice for lodging in Hyde Park!
