The upper west side of Manhattan is a beautiful part of the city. Its a more residential part of the city but still close to the noisier busier parts downtown. The hotel is very nice , situated right across from the great science museum and a small park. The streets are full of nice shops. We walked the 20 minutes to the Met. Its very easy to get around the city from here.
Its an older NY hotel with all spaces fairly small. It has a European feel of a welcoming boutique hotel. The room was small but very nice. It was quiet. The bed was excellent.The bathroom was remodeled and very nice. The view from our window was very nice and open to the wide expanse of downtown. There is a nice small park across the street. We bought some food down the street at Trader Joes and had a nice picnic in the evening.
The staff was very nice and helpful.
The price runs around 300-350/night. Its pricey but not out of line for new york.
