My mother and I recently spent 3 days in NYC. We've both been to the city many times, but this hotel was by far the best, especially for the price. The location couldn't have been better. Great upper west side neighborhood, just a block away from Central Park, and very close to Natural History Musem and the MET. The room was spacious and comfortable. It's our new favorite hotel and will try to get it for future visits to the city.
The Park 79 is a quaint, old-world hotel, the same type you'd find in many European cities. Fast, efficient and respectful service, clean rooms, and fantastic location. It isn't your 21st century modern hotel - the wooden hallway floors, the older doors, they all feel slightly older. And yes, the window air-conditioning unit is loud, so be advised. But for its charm and its basic, reliable convenience, the Park 79 is a wonderful choice, and one I'll make again.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Lucerne hotel. The staff was friendly, our room was beautiful and very clean. I would have preferred a regular mini coffee pot over the Keurig. Lots of things to do within walking distance (Central Park, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Natural History Museum and great restaurants). And the subway is close by. We would stat there again!
I chose this hotel based on the relative value compared to other hotels in the area. It offered a reasonably sized room, easy access to the subway, friendly staff, and a great location. I was able to pack in a lot of sightseeing, and it was particularly nice to be only a few blocks from the Museum of Natural History and Central Park.
The building itself is old, although the rooms have been renovated adequately. The only time I heard any other people was when they closed their doors in the hall. Overall, this was a good experience. I would stay there again.
Love, love, love this hotel. It is an easy walk to the subway, the Museum of Natural Histotry,Central Park and is across the street from a great grocery store. It is super clean and comfortable. Not to mention affordable. Get a suite if you can, it's totally worth it for the extra room.
This hotel was ok for a one night stay. The room was comfortable, clean and adequate for one person. My only negative comment would be that my room was facing Broadway, and the noise was deafening all night. The windows do not block out any sound at all.
Some bemoan that the Upper West Side has become a version of the Upper East Side. Case in point: Columbus Circle’s Time Warner Center, one of New York’s priciest real estate. The Upper West Side includes the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia University. Harlem, the legendary African American neighborhood, lies north and caps Manhattan.
