This is a hotel for people whose most important consideration is a low price. The rooms are small, but so are our prices, which are the lowest of decent hotels in this city. We have 120 rooms that are clean and comfortable. This is a residential neighborhood just above mid-town. It is quiet, so you will get a good night's sleep away from midtown traffic. We are five minutes from midtown, once you step into a cab or the subway. You can get a cab in less than a minute, and the subway is three blocks away, (a three minute walk). Three bus lines are also nearby. We give you maps of the city subway and bus lines. The Museum of Natural History is four blocks away on our same street, Lincoln Center is just below us, and you can walk to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Empire State Building is 15 minutes by subway and the Statue of Liberty, by ferry boat, is about 25 minutes.

Riverside Tower Hotel: Upper West Side

I have never taken the time to complete a hotel survey. Whether good or bad, I simply didn't make the effort to do it. If it was good, I'd likely return and conversely, if it was bad, I'd simply go elsewhere in the future. I feel obligated, however, to warn others exactly what they're getting into with this place so they don't make the same mistake. The location is great. The positives end there. The rooms are filthy. I'm a man's man and don't need to be pampered by 5-Star care, so when I say they're filthy, I mean I wrapped the pillow in my own t-shirt and slept in my clothes. The floor was horrific. Stains, spots and clumps of dirt greeted me when I walked in for the first time. The shower was so small you got out soapy because you couldn't maneuver to even rinse off. There was no cable, no internet (much less WiFi), and the staff at the desk in the lobby would not even look up when you walked in and out of the hotel. When I left to attend a meeting, I locked my things up in their 'secured room' which was filled with mildew-covered rollaway beds and bags of trash, which had split open (perhaps from mice) and trash was strewn about the floor. Upon returning home, I washed my clothes twice on a heavy cycle and took my suits (even the unworn ones) to the drycleaners. This hotel is absolutely filthy!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You're not saving money by staying here. The accommodations are so bad, that it will actually take away from your New York experience. Pay more and stay somewhere different.
