I stayed at the PARK 79 HOTEL for three night during the Christmas holidays. The front desk staff lacked courtesy. The room was terrible; bugs, poor lighting, awful mattress, and lack of hot water. Worse, the room was not cleaned well. I chose to not use the bath/shower because of uncleanliness. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel,... More

It's a fraud. We paid $150 a night and the day we arrived we were told the bathroom was shared. They ruined our first day in New york, running to find another hotel and praying that we canceled this . In publications never clarify this horrible detail. They did not charge the error made ​​and even seemed normal. I repeat,... More

BEWARE...My husband booked this hotel as part of a weekend in NYC Christmas gift. We are supposed to be going next weekend and as we were planning our activities we discovered that the hotel is closed for renovation! The reservation was pre-paid and we haven't heard from the hotel! And they aren't answering their phone! I would have expected contact... More

This hotel is conveniently located between two different subway lines (the most useful lines for most attractions) and just a short walk away from the Natural History Museum and Central Park. The room was small but adequate and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is no breakfast available, but the free hot drinks is a nice touch.

This hotel is located one block from Central Park on the upper west side. It's in a great location to plenty of museums and restaurants. Check in and out was very fast and convenient. Only downside to this place is that the rooms are extremely small. Enough space for a bed and a suitcase, bathroom shower door doesn't even open... More

Enjoyed a week in NYC with the Park 79 as our home base. The room (512?) was small and faced a wall, but I remembered the ads that beyond the wall was the city. My sister and each had a twin bed - the best and most comfortable of all the hotel beds on our three-week trip. The staff was... More

I was highly satisfied with the woman whom checked me in. She was quite professional and welcoming. I was highly grateful she was able to help me print a ticket for the show I was in town for and running late.

my friend and I have stayed here 4 or 5 times over the past few years. We have stayed in the rooms with twin beds, and a couple of the suites.

Stayed here with my mum in November 2015. Arrived a little before check in and the staff allowed us to check in regardless. They were very busy and perhaps not overly welcoming but they were not rude. We got a free upgrade to a room with a private bathroom which was great. The rooms is small but it is NYC... 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.
