Perfect location if visiting Fordham University Lincoln Center. Plenty of restaurants and close to all the cultural venues e.g. The Metropolitan Opera, Juliard, and Lincoln Center. Rooms are small and the toilet in my room was extremely close to the wall.

My fiancé booked this as a surprise for me when we visited New York in January and we loved every minute of it! We only stayed one night but it was lovely! The room was very spacious, clean with lovely décor! Would 100% stay here again!

I do not typically post negative reviews of hotels as I don't feel it necessary to hurt a business unless there has been an egregious cause. I am a global traveler who stays at exclusive properties however I have realistic expectations with regard to cost / value. My daughter relocated to Manhattan over the weekend and requested that we stay... More

Any hotel bar that serves Veuve Cliquot by the glass is A One in my book. Love the international clientele and the locals that come to the bar. Reservation staff very accommodating. Charming and unique room layouts.

Perfect location, across from Lincoln center and convenient walk to all surrounding sites...chic, modern and very impressive.. Rooftop bar is under remodel but hopefully will be open in October when I return for another great NYC weekend getaway.

We are staying at this hotel currently for 6 days. We got in really late on the 26th August and asked the man at the hotel desk if we could get a upgrade to a King room he said that it was full booked but come back each day and see what happens. So on Sunday morning I asked them... More

Small, AC units can't keep up, and the worst bathroom design I've ever seen. No shower door on the side where the shower head is and water literally puddles on the floor while you shower. No place to put your bathroom things to get ready. Not good.

The hotel was very well located and the room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was on the small side but adequate. WIFI in the rooms was only available for a fee which we felt was disproportionally high. The staff was friendly and helpful. We did not use the bar or restaurant.

Great hotel and location. Very close to Central Park. Air conditioning needs upgrade: very noisy and room needs some TLC. Staff very friendly. However it's was a fantastic holiday we would stay again.

Hotel was amazing! However, my friend and I found the hotel staff not very helpful. I found this difficult to understand, as it was our first in new York, I believe the staff should have been more approachable.

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.
