Clarion Hotel on Park Ave. South - good location???

Does anyone know about the location of the Clarion Park Ave. South?? I know it got pretty good reviews on this website but is it in the middle of hussle and bussle? I prefer to stay on the upper w. side but the Comfort Inn West got not so good reviews and most of the less expensive hotels in that area are booked or poorly reviewed. Thanks for any info you have.

This location is very good....right near the #6 train line on 28th St, within walking distance to the Empire State Bldg, Macys, Grand Central Station and the Union Square Area. Buses run on Park Avenue, also, and the area is somewhat quiet at night, yet enough activity so that you do not feel isolated. If you cannot get an upper west side hotel, then I think this is a good bet, unless you want the Times Square Area (Belvedere of HOtel 41, for instance).

The neighborhood is fine, but the UWS is much nicer. Friends stayed at the Comfort Inn Central Park in September. There was a bit of a mix-up about beds (they are a mother & daughter and the hotel gave them one double bed). It took a day to sort out the difficulty. But, even with that, they'd go back in a heartbeat -- the location is THAT wonderful! It's on W. 71st St. between Columbus Ave. & Central Park West. A block from the Dakota. Two blocks from the subway. Right in the heart of the vibrant upper west side.

Also look at the Beacon, Belleclaire, Milburn, Newton, Lucerne.
