Great Location, convenient parking and spacious rooms

Close to Central Park and 10 minute walk to the train station,

Eh... Service was poor. Establishment was average. amenities, so so.

Location was good. Pretty old but decently conserved property

The street side was noisy, but the inside room was quiet and comfortable.

The staff were very nice. Check-in was fast. Room was very clean. Food was excellent!! Loved the soap, shampoo and shower cap. Location and price overall was very good. Only thing i didnt like was the added "destination fee" tacked on to every day. I am still not clear why hotels in the area are xgarging this.

Great location close to Central Park. No complimentary breakfast. Buffet $25 is a bit too much.

I liked the location and the rooms were clean- though we did see a few ants.

Location is amazing everything was within walking distance and if it wasn't the subway was close by. Also the beds were so comfy. Really enjoyed my stay.

DRILLING was going on entire morning, we were not able to sleep, it was a nightmare entire morning until the check out! The shower was impossible to turn on, there was no water. We were turning all the possible handles there and suddenly, after like 5 minutes of turning those, the water would start running. Very weird.

I don’t have no complaint everything is perfect 😊😊

Great size room. Neat and clean. Friendly staff. Bathroom and carpeting in the room need an upgrade.

West 57th Street New York NY
