When I booked this hotel, I was a little more than skeptical as it was cheaper than some of the hostels in the area ($129/night). But I figured, it was a name-brand hotel on the Upper West Side three blocks from Central Park, so what could I lose? And boy am I glad I did.
The hotel lobby is old, but clean and established looking. There are a myriad of ways to get ot your room including at least two banks of elevators and a stairwell. There front desk staff were prompt and very nice. I also had to work with them over the phone prior to arriving because I accidentally double booked and they were equally nice in this instance.
The elevators on the right are a little rickety, so I would suggest taking the bank to the left by the Bell desk. Once you get to your floor, you will either be disappointed or plesantly surprised by the hallways. It seemed that some of the floors had gotten new paint and carpet while others had not yet. At least one of the floors with an ice machine had the new paint, so you can try requesting that. Another comment is that each floor is a confusing mess of hallways without a clear indication of where your room is, so it may take you a few minutes to find your room the first time. After that, though, you shoudl be fine.
Regarding the rooms, I was more than happy with how it turned out. Though I didn't have a great view (onto the roof of an adjacent building), it was clean and spacious. We also had problems with the hot water, but it turned out that they had the cold and hot lines swapped, so once we figured that out, it was fine. I also noticed that the doors and walls were thin as I was able to listen to my neighbors TV through the wall. The bed was fairly comfortable, even though I have back problems.
Perhaps the best thing about this hotel is the location. It is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, three blocks from Central Park. Also convenient is that it is located two blocks from a subway station. Between walking and the subway, I didn't spend a dime on a taxi and was able to get all around New York. There are also some excellent eateries and stores in the area. This is much more of a locals area than a tourist area, so I would recommend walking around and exploring if you want to see what life is like on the UWS of New York.
