We were in town for a college graduation. The location was safe and convenient. The subway stop was 2 blocks away. The rooms were much bigger than we expected. They were clean, comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was small but there was ample closet space. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again

This hotel was recommended by a friend who lives in the neighborhood. It is conveniently located near the subway, Central Park, and shopping. The front desk was very professional during the check-in and check-out process.

We enjoyed our stay at this pleasant, quiet hotel on the upper west side. The neighborhood is lovely - great location on the upper west side. Friendly staff. Good mid-point location whether traveling uptown, midtown or downtown.
