Upper west side gem

This hotel never fails. The staff and rooms are always fantastic! The hotel itself is nestled in the upper West side and close to the 72nd subway station. Across the street is a market and restaurants and shops are plentiful in the area For good Italian food try her patell for good Italian food try Papparadelle right around the corner. I love this hotel.

Nice hotel (but not fancy), rooms are clean, nice linens, quiet, great staff. We like the location - in walking distance of subway, great small restaurants, Lincoln Center, theatre, and Levain bakery (best cookies ever!)

West Side Convenience

The rooms aren’t spacious, but certainly adequate, clean, convenient and reasonably priced. Restaurants, grocery, prepared foods all within a short walk. Rooms facing the street are quiet and comfortably furnished.

Spotless comfy hitel

This hotel was spotless and comfortable. Location was perfect for Beacon theater attendance next door. Adjacent to an eatery as well made breakfasts, lunches quick. The hotel bar was upscale and enjoyable. Stafff through the hotel friendly and accommodating. I found this location perfect and walking to various museums etc easily doable.

I don’t know who determines hotel star ratings but this is not a 4 Star hotel. Maybe 3. Updates were more like putting lipstick on a pig. Not a terrible hotel but only fair. Bathtub in room 1803 does not drain and I’m sure I’m not the first person to mention it. Standing water for at least 2 hours after my 3 minute shower. I checked out before any of the water had drained. Ick. Staff at the front desk were not thrilled to be there. Whole experience...meh.

Travel with kids

The kitchenette made my trip easier with the kids. It was handy having a spot they could get their breakfast, pack a lunch, or make a light dinner at “home”. Clean and comfortable rooms. Grocery store across the street is added bonus!

Great Value

Pros: Room size, location, beds
Cons: Shower water pressure
Location: Loved the location. Close to Central Park, Museum of Natural History, Uptown, Subway Station, etc.
Third time staying in NYC. Was expecting a standard NYC hotel room that is basically an oversized closet. I was very pleased when I opened the door and found a room with plenty of space and a nice size bathroom. Beds were comfortable and I enjoyed the location was close enough to major attractions but far enough away from the madhouse known as times square.
